The TV Week Logies

As far as the hair was concerned at the recent Logie awards all I can say is pretty uninspiring!

Long, loose, soft waves were the main theme with the odd simple updo thrown in for good measure. Come on all you hairdressers to the stars, if this is all you can come up with for our TV stars then what hope have the rest of us for our big events!

October 2008

If you have been watching the catwalk shows of late one hair look has been very popular with fashion designers around the world and its the 'slicked back' look. Whether it's straight back off the face and slicked down with a wet look gel or styled from a straight side parting and slicked and gelled into a very neat bun at the nape its a look for all but those of us with very short hair and a fun alternative style. Check out our What's New in Hair article for more information.

September 2008

For the first part of 2008 the biggest trend in hair has been the heavy blunt fringe or bangs but as we enter the last few months of the year the fringe is also becoming a thing of the past. Growing out a fringe does not have to be a painful experience as you can progress through various hair styles as you do so. Try pulling back an annoying length of fringe with a thick hair band or pinning it out of the way and creating a little height at the same time with some bobby pins. Get your hairdresser to slide cut your fringe so that it tapers from a shorter length to a longer length and it will sit to one side more easily.

August 2008

Of all the emails we get we can catagorise the 'what shall I do with my hair' email is by far the most asked question that we receive. Now as you all know the answer to this one is very individual and comes down to things like your own hair length and type, your age, face shape and life style all play personal factors. However what is happening or about to happen hair trend wise is the one factor that will influence us all to a lesser or greater degree. So as a guide to getting it right:

  • The fringe/bangs will remain current for the next 6 months
  • Feminine looks with a pretty appeal will be hot
  • Soft waves and touchable floaty texture (layers) will complement the fashion trends
  • Loose plaits/braids remain the alternative look for long hair
  • Grown out rooty colour is a thing of the past as it is replaced by freshly applied refined looks
  • If colour is to be used in a more funky way subtle dipped ends looks will be the on-fashion trend

Earlier this year:

Rosemont Australian Fashion Week other wise referred to as RAFW

Of all the hair looks to strut down the catwalk in Sydney this week from a spot the trend in hair perspective it was the heavy fringe. Blunt cut slightly rounded at the corners and often worn with long hair (on the catwalk that's because you are limited as a hairdresser to what you can do to professional models). These looks we have found for you to the left are all from the 2007 AHFAwards and show this type of fringe teamed with shorter hair.

We also spotted braids at both Ksubi and Milk and Honey. At Ksubi braids were slicked back with a wet look gel and then from the crown hair left loose and full.

This creation from Brad Ngata definitely worked for Ksubi but as far as something we will be doing with our hair next season I don't think so as most of us would still look like school girls gone wrong!

Ponytails were very popular with many of the designers; Jessie Hill, Alex Perry, Melanie Cutfield and Tina Kalvias who's hair director Alan White opted for the looks below:

At Jessie Hill Brad Ngata went for a slightly different version of the 'donut' ponytail:

For total opposites Lisa Ho, Zimmerman, Cybele, Fashion Assassin and below at Fluer Wood hair was soft, loose and long:

But over at Azzollini things were very hard and blunt with bob shaped wigs used to complement the clothes:
