Hairstyle Trends: Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2011

Hair today, gone tomorrow. In the world of fashion, hair and makeup trends go in and out of style as often as the latest crazy clothing trends. But let’s admit it, ladies, that’s why we love it all so much!

The ability to switch up your look every season lends beauty and fashion an aura of playfulness and excitement, and we were pretty excited to take in the hairstyle trends from Fall 2011 Fashion Week. We’re even more excited to share them all with you, though, darlings. Read on, take it all in, and get ready to look hot.

Bold Parts

It would be silly to deny the special relationship between a lady and her part, ye hair fanatics. And whether you prefer to wear yours straight down the middle, a little to the side, or dramatically lined, we all have our own preferences. This Fashion Week, we noticed that many designers do, too.

Dramatic parts showed up all over the runways (like in this Elie Tahari look), ranging from the striking center parts to deep side parts. We’re huge fans of switching things up in the hair department, and we’re really digging the best part about this look: It’s easy. No haircut or hour-long prep process involved. Just comb and go!

Natural, bed head curls

Any trend that affords us a bit of laziness in our beauty routine is A-OK with us, thank you. So we really loved the “romantic, next day bed hair” that curl expert Ouidad created backstage at Rebecca Minkoff.

The beautiful look also popped up at several other shows, making us think that it’s ok if we let our hair loose a bit next fall.


Antoinette Beenders for Aveda Fall Winter 2011 Christian Siriano Braids

Remember how fun braids were when you were little? You could spend hours braiding and re-braiding your friends’ hair, trying to create the perfect look. Well, ladies, it looks like you’re going to get the chance to put that practice to good use next fall!

Many designers featured a variation of braided looks during Fashion Week. From the wraparound braids at Erin Fetherston to Nannette Lepore’s messy take on the French braid, braids definitely made a statement this year. Above, Antoinette Beenders used braids of different sizes on one model for Christian Siriano’s show.

Messy hair

When we say messy, we don’t mean the dirty, “when was the last time you washed your hair” type of disaster we sometimes see on passersby during our posh city struts. No, we mean the type of deliberately messy hair that makes it look like you don’t really give a…well, you fill in the blank.

Messy, disheveled looking hair made its appearance in many shows this Fashion Week. Just take a gander at this look from the LAMB show, and you’ll be lusting after the messy look too, lovelies!
