SS12 Hair - Parting Waves...

Springs is really starting to pop up all around us, though unfortunately in the UK the weather this month is really living up to its label of ‘April Showers’. So as a little something to brighten my day I’ve taken to looking into the Spring-Summer hair trends. There are six main trends which we can mix and match across each other as well to give you a wealth of choice and variation so we need never wear the same hair too often! I’m going to break them down over the next few days and show two at a time, as I’m a little sparse on time at the moment.

An easy way to change up your style if you are not too savvy with your hair is to change your parting. The Spring-Summer catwalks liked to have a deep side parting, even if it was tied back in a low pony. Make sure your parting is neat by using a tail comb on slightly damp hair and then style.

Waves this season are soft and loose. I believe the best waves are styled with a tong rather than by curling with straighteners. The tongs make it soft and not too tight, more of a Hollywood glam type of curl which is having a huge moment at the moment on the heels of films like ‘My Week With Marylin’. Now if you struggle with tonging your hair, or have simply never tried and want some advice I find this tutorial from THE BEAUTY DEPARTMENT really helpful.
If you have natural curls or waves, add a salt spray to your hair and let it dry naturally, then if needed tong to perfect your curls. Girls with straight, fine or limp hair may want to invest in some heated rollers or alternatively go vintage and pin curl your hair post tonging to help set the style. Your main weapons of choice will be a nice soft moose to dry with to add hold and a setting spray while curling. 

Hope you are all looking forward to embracing theses trends as much as me. I'd love to see a photo if you do try them.
