Backstage Beauty Pass: London Fashion Week
Published 18/03/2016 | 12:20
We went backstage at London Fashion Week to get firsthand advice at nailing the upcoming season's hottest hair trends.
It's the hardest beauty look to nail - the "I just threw this up, but it happens to look amazing." It's the hair look that every London girl has made into an artform. Sibling's impossibly cool London Fashion Week showcase featured a newer take on its trademark laidback luxe style.
The hair is described as: "Cool, bad girl vibes ...she's twisted her hair into a neat spiral cone and included a couple of ringlets. Her rebellious attitude has taken her on a wild night out and she's awoken with an undone version of the look which she much prefers."
How do you get it? Patience and plait.
Mark Hampton, Global Hair Ambassador with Toni & Guy, told us: "The key to this look is tightening the French pleat as this will create a shorter fringe and enable you to easily style the fringe to sit around your face."
If you're a Vivienne Westwood girl, you know it takes time to come up with an appropriate alternative to the xxxx norms. Tight ringlets should't work, but the rules go out of the window with the Dame of British Fashion's Autumn/Winter '16 collection.
The inspiration? "The renaissance and 1400s. The collection depicts The Joker, a strong presence in medieval and Renaissance history and seen in the collection in print, tartans and knitwear."
How do you get it?
"Take a section of hair from the back of the crown, twisting and flattening it against the head before pinning in place," Mark explains. "This reduces the amount of hair you need to curl as you can cover it."
"Simplicity is beauty" is the simple tagline of Roksanda's AW16 collection, letting the clothes speak for themselves. Low ponytals with dark berry suede wraps were the trend du jour.
How do you get it?
"The key to making this ponytail look so beautiful is to ensure the ponytail sits below the base of the hairline," Mark tells us. "Double tie to guarantee the ponytail stays in place.
