Which New York hair look is yours?
Beauty director Michelle Brownlee Smith travelled to The Big Apple with Tresemmé to bring you the latest tress trends.
New York Fashion Week is first on the style calendar. It’s here that the season kicks off and where the world’s fashionistas go for looks that are wearable, trendy and diverse. Tresemmé hair director Orlando Pita explains: “New York has a reputation for being loud and aggressive, but I’ve only experienced love and acceptance. It’s got a great mix of diversity, and it’s here that fashion and hair celebrate individuality and achievable styles. Women don’t want to see conceptual hair and makeup that they can’t recreate – now, we’re moving towards more desirable looks from head to toe.” Orlando concedes that there is one trend that won’t go away: long hair. “It’s still the most manageable ’do,” he explains. Luckily, the latest styles work well on long, short, curly or kinky tresses. So, which one will you try today? Curls and texture were celebrated at the Kate Spade and Oscar de la Renta shows. Hairstylist Bob Recine says, “I’ve always felt that less is more. It’s the small mistakes that attract a person, like that little strand of hair that flirts with your mouth, or wispy pieces that escape – that’s what people are interested in. We’ve moved away from cookiecutter styles and empowered women to look like themselves, to embrace the flaws that express their individuality.” To get this ’do ( LEFT), Bob used his hair arsenal in a different way: he spritzed hairspray onto the brush before brushing for touchable hold.
