Wedding Essentials



If it wasn’t obvious by now, the 90’s are back. Plaid shirts, cropped sweaters, backpacks, ripped denim, jean jackets, lacy slip dresses, oversized everything, grunge, and preppy, they’re all making a refreshing and much welcome appearance on everything from the streets to blogs, to the glossy pages of magazines.

So where do our ‘up-do’s stand amid all this? Take your cue from one of the country’s leading hair destinatio­ns—vivere Salon.

Like the understate­d glam that was notable of the 90’s, and the trademark lazy chic that sartoriali­sts exuded, hair this season is punctuated by a sense of ease and effortless­ness. Think artfully messy up-do’s that are equal parts functional and stylish one end of the spectrum, and sleek, silky and perfectly blown out bobs on another. Somewhere in between is the all-natural median—air-dried, parted in the middle or tossed to one side, hanging gracefully on your shoulders.

If you want to stay on trend, take note of these buzzwords for cuts for the season: edgy and on-trend but still functional and versatile. Think blunt bobs with a trendy fringe, geometric cuts with great movement, long and luxurious tresses with loads of texture.

The same rule applies for men’s hairstyles. The hyperstyle­d brush backs of recent years are taking a backseat to loose quiffs, blunt cropped fringes, even the easy and surprising­ly flattering long French crop

Finally, let’s talk about color. The 90’s were all about experiment­ation and exploratio­n. The fashion forward weren’t afraid to push the envelope in terms of color and they weren’t afraid to try new hues. You get the classic shades—golden blondes, rich auburns, deep reds, beautiful chestnuts, and in contrast, platinum and silver, light blues and purple grays, crazy magentas, dark purples. To add a more updated look to the 90s resurgence, ombres make a welcome addition to this season’s hair color trends—from flattering all-natural highlights to kitschy chromes and pinks.
