Hair Gets Greasy For F/W 14
Natural nails or bold, intricate nail art? A dark matte red lip or nude gloss? There are times when we wish the fashion world would just make up its mind, and then there are times when we say *Yippee! for the full palette of of-the-moment options. Fall ’14 seems to be the later.
Hair on the recent Fall ’14 runways seems to be a horse of a different color when compared to the shiny, flat-ironed locks in the ad campaigns of Miu Miu, Missoni, Versace, Gucci & Prada. Phillip Lim 3.1, Rag & Bone, and Thakoon all styled their models with decidedly unkempt looks that were continually referenced as “easy,” “sweaty,” and “cool.”
Stylist Odile Gilbert described Thakoon F/W 14 hair as “…a girl who went to the gym, so she’s sweaty in the front and kind of fluffy in the back. It’s really about the gesture of pushing it back, away from the face.” And while we prefer Rag & Bone’s description of “Saturday hair” far better than “sweaty” (which, btw, was also a buzzword for 3.1 Phillip Lim’s stylist Paul Hanlon), it’s clear that the look is about to catch on.
So put away those flat irons and dry shampoos and let your grease flag fly! Or don’t. It seems Fall ’14 will be about personal preference (and maintenance - obvs).
