Hair: SS14 Trends - Bob It & Gypset

Carrying on from my last SS14 hair report here are two more trends you may want to consider when styling your hair in the upcoming season.

Bob It
Bobbed haircuts are making a comeback if the catwalks are anything to go by. Personally I think Karlie Kloss cutting her hair into this chic shape has had a huge influence on the opinion of bobs too, let’s face it all of us with long hair think we will do it when we turn 40 or for ‘Mum’ hair to “save the hassle of blowdrying” but not so anymore. Chanel used wigs to give the models a 60’s flicked bob in a pageboy cut to accompany their colour make-up and models at Paul Smith, Steve Alan and Lacoste were spotted sporting this length. If you go for the chop make sure you keep it on trend by having a blunt one-length between chin and shoulder length. Fringes are optional but most bobs were seen centre parted with no shape around the face. If you are having a cut like this please keep in mind you will need to keep a regular 4-5 week appointment with your hair stylist to keep it fresh and the right length. If you dont fancy a chop try a faux bob a la Badgley Mischka and pin your hair into a roll at the back while keeping a bobbed shape at the front.

L-R: Topshop Unique, Alexander Wang, Balmain, Burberry Prorsum all Via Pinterest
Gypset is a bohemian styling for the Jet Set so try to think of hippy hair with a polished finish. The Topshop Unique show seems to have coined the word by opting for curls and waves that look like they have maybe been slightly exposed to humidity with a rougher finish while Alexander Wang models got an almost second day hair with polish effect. Balmain went for a polished natural dry and Emilio Pucci left the roots and ends straight but curled the mid-lengths. The Gypset trend is going to be a bit wear-your-hair-your-way, so work with the natural texture a little and tweak. L’Oreal’s new Tec.Ni.Art Wild Styler in Crêpage De Chignon would be great for the texture of this look whether you wear it straight or waved on dry hair or to get natural texture while drying naturally and a later day booster Kérastase Spray à Porter would be a great product and is also an ELLE's International Beauty Award winner.
