The upcoming summer will be cool! At least when you look at hairstyles from Paris to Tokyo. Designers are not only creating a stir with their new collections, but also with the hairstyles of their models. Straight hair is being worn in the sleek look and natural colour nuances are being used as highlights. Aside from that: if you are bored with your long mane, add some extravagance to your cut!
Naturally you can pep up your long hair with layers. But what most people don’t know: pronounced layers are only suited for thick hair. This thins it out, making it lighter for added bounce. Thin hair on the other hand visually loses volume. When the hairs end in one length, they also protect each other against external influences. This means layered hair is more susceptible to split ends and therefore requires more intensive care. But there are many other options for a bit of variety. We present the best ideas from the international runways:
How about a fringe from side to side? The basic hair length is maintained. Only the fringe is consistently shortened, from one ear to the other (seen here on the runway of SayMyName). The advantage: styling takes very little time and your hairdo is always exciting, whether you wear it open, in a ponytail or as a chignon.
With the long version of the clavi-cut (seen here on the runway of Agnes B), you also keep the option of tying it back. Worn open, there is currently nothing trendier than this new version of the long bob. This look also appears très français with a casually styled fringe!
For those who prefer taking small steps, we recommend an over-length, diagonal fringe seen here on blogger Doina Ciobanu. It softly transitions into the copiously layered hair on the side. Extra-long hair looks especially beautiful when the lower third is styled with a curling iron. Do not forget heat protectant!
Karl Lagerfeld brought the feel of the eighties to the runway for Chanel. Naturally this included 80s hairstyles. This means great fun for those who dare! Natural curls work especially well with this trend. Coarse layers create a compact, plump hairdo while rouge and earrings add the flashdance feeling.
Short in front, long in back
Louis Vuitton attracted attention with 80s inspiration as well. With this version of the short in front, long in back cut, the hair at the back of the neck extends down to the shoulder blades and the over-length fringe covers the eyebrows. If the pronounced layers make your hair appear thinner, that is OK with this cut. It is after all a look of extremes.
