Jason Wu and Ralph Lauren (to name but a few) showed that the humble ponytail deserves its place in the hairstyle spotlight. Not only is the ponytail versatile (wear it high, wear it low, wear it to the side), but it can easily go from casual to elegant depending on how you style it. To capture the sleek, sophisticated look we spied on the runways, prep hair with styling serum to add shine and minimize frizz. Then flat iron hair as straight as you can get it, pull back into a sleek ponytail and secure with anything from simple elastics to more eye-catching options.
Straight-across bangs were a fixture on several fall 2012 runways, including Marni, Versace and Elie Saab (think Rooney Mara on red carpets last year). This look is dramatic and definitely a change if you don’t currently have bangs, or sport a longer, side swept fringe. The key to getting it right is to talk to your stylist about whether or not this look works with your face shape, and if so, how best to go about it so it suits you. Blunt bangs can work with many hair lengths, from chin to shoulder and offer a quick way to update your overall style.
One look we were pleasantly surprised to see on more than a few fall runways was simple, natural-looking hair that showed off natural body and healthy sheen. What does this mean for you? You can unplug the flat iron, go easy on the hairspray and let your real tresses take the stage -- minus much enhancement. We’re not suggesting rolling out of bed and out the door without so much as a cursory comb through, but you can rest easy knowing that as long as your locks are clean, trimmed and healthy, you can get away with just about anything!
Statement hair accessories took the fall runways by storm and we saw some stand-out pieces adorning models' tresses at Tory Burch and Dolce & Gabbana. One of the easiest and fastest ways to switch up your look for any season, accessories add instant interest to your look with a just a few snaps of a barrette. For this fall look for feminine pieces (think satin headbands), metallic pieces and anything with embellishments to really make a statement for the season.
