Fendi and Jil Sander had their models wear big 1950s hairdos albeit with a little smile and a wink. On the other side of the spectrum, Armani featured pinned up hair and sophisticated braiding. Many of the hairdos involved loosely hanging hair styled either casually with middle parting in Versace fashion or softly curled by Prada. We show you the most beautiful 2012 FW hair styles

  • Wealthy Chinese women are now among the cherished customers on the European fashion scene. This may explain why the Milan Fashion Week was such a brilliant feast for the eyes this year. In 2012, the fashion embraces decorative elements and embellishments like rhinestones, pearls, shells, and rivets. Finally, colourful patterns are back! The outfit materials show fruit, chilli pods, art deco designs on background in muted tones or they are fiery red or lagoon green.

    The 2012 hair styles match this opulent style. The combed back 'big hair' in proper or 'false' bobs featured by the fashion houses of Jil Sander and Fendi were inspired by the 1950s. Gucci hair fashions took 1920s style elements and combined them with smooth shiny quiffs and a touch of punk rock. In the Missoni fashion house models create plenty of excitement with chignons in the style of Flamenco dancers. Tiny strands of hair are casually plucked out of the chignons for an undone flair. The chignons are adorned in true Flamenco style with unusual combs, which are embellished with snake heads and motifs in the brightest colours of the rainbow. You find the most beautiful 2012 hair styles in our gallery below.

    The shiny top quiff is from the 1920s, the make-up with the exaggerated smokey eyes is in today's style. Gucci uses dramatic graphic prints from the 'Roaring Twenties' for next year's fashion and matches them with equally dramatic updos. Before you style your hair in this fashion, you should add some volume spray and blow-dry your hair for styling ease and hold. Then take a wide strand of hair from the top of your head and turn it under to a quiff. Secure the quiff with hair needles. The remaining hair is gathered to a ponytail in the nape of the neck

    The hair is piled up high on top of the head in this bob. Fendi detracts from the matronly impression with some deliberate 'undone' elements. The leaf gold on the eyebrows certainly disqualifies this style for the schoolmarm category. Use volume or styling spray for this hair style; then blow-dry and slightly tease your hair. Comb your hair back and turn it under in the neck to a 'fake' bob. Use plenty of glossy hair spray for perfect hold

    2012 Hair Styles by Jil Sander

    Jil Sander presents a very exacting hair style this season. The hair is turned under in the nape of the neck and pinned to a 'false' bob. This style is reminiscent of actress Tippi Hedren in the 1960s Hitchcock classic 'The Birds'. Create this style by first blow-drying the more than shoulder-length hair while pulling it back over a large round brush. The hair is turned inward in the nape of the neck and secured with hidden hair pins. Use a lot of hair spray to keep every hair in place

    This folk hair style is fit for dancing the Flamenco. Missoni's models look deliberately casual wearing the somewhat messy chignon and ponytail adorned with combs showing colourful snake motifs. To create this hair style allow your hair to air-dry, comb it back and roll the top hair under from both sides using the richly embellished combs. Then use a scrunchy to gather the lower back hair in a casual ponytail. Work some matting hair wax into the ends of the ponytail and comb the ends straight down

    Armani presented delicate gowns and shimmering pearl make-up. The romantic updos match his style while maintaining simple, clear lines. Create this style by turning thin strands of hair over your finger to form small rolls. Secure each roll with invisible hair pins. Use the same method to fashion a chignon low in the nape of your neck; secure the chignon with hidden hair pins as well

    Retro curls are the perfect fit for the swinging plissé skirts by Prada. Still, Prada manages to put his very own stamp on this hair style as well. Typically for Prada, the curls do not at all create a sweet and stylish appearance but rather look deliberately messy. The style appears to rely on an abundance of styling products, and the hair pins are clearly visible. In order to create this style, distribute some gel wax in the palms of your hands before stroking over the top layer of your hair. Now comb your hair straight before using a curling iron to form ringlets from the ear level down. Finally, pull your side hair back behind your ears and secure it there with hair slides

    2012 Hair Styles by Versace

    Versace always regales us with opulence. This season's fashion is no exception. His hair fashion revels in volume and lustre and looks like an American import. The middle parting gives the hairdo the modern flair. For this style, start with slightly damp hair and roll it on large-diameter rollers. Use a blow-dryer to warm the rolled up hair and allow it cool. Remove the rollers, brush your hair and finish by applying a trace of hair spray
