Hairdressing Icon Angelo Seminara, Davines Artistic Director and 3-times British Hairdresser of the Year, reveals his top hair trends for Spring/Summer 2016 – don’t miss them!
- Bangs – Get used to wearing your hair in your eyes
- “Next season it’s all about the bangs. At Fashion Week S/S16, the runways were teaming with fringes, worn in a variety of ways: baby bangs at Prada, eyelash skimming whisps at Rebecca Minkoff and blunt cuts at Vera Wang. Keep the look edgy, with a choppy shaggy fringe, as seen at Alexander Wang, or for a more wearable version, take inspiration from Giorgio Armani and have a deep sweeping side fringe cut in to your locks,” says Angelo.
- Twists – At the S/S16 shows we saw various takes on the classic twist
- “A quirky alternative to all the braids we’ve seen recently, Paul Smith, Lanvin, Alberta Ferretti and Altuzarra were just a handful of designers to put their stamp on this traditional style. The beauty of this trend lies in two things: how simple it is to recreate and how wearable this look is, dressed up or down. If you are adding a twist in to freshly washed squeaky-clean hair, it’s essential to apply a good prepping product. The Your Hair Assistant BlowDry Primer, which I developed with Davines, applied before blow-drying and styling, will give the final style more body and hold. A final spritz of Your Hair Assistant Perfecting Hairspray will keep the structure of the twist in place for even longer,” says Angelo.
- Natural texture: Embrace your curves was the message from the new season’s shows
- “At Chloé, the hair’s natural kinks were encouraged, while at Bottega Veneta, the aim backstage was to create ‘real women hair,’ full of natural movement, windswept volume and irregular waves that verged on messy. To recreate this ‘day after a blow-dry’ look, and boost your natural texture, spray Your Hair Assistant Definition Mist to hair, before drying, to add separation and texture. Once hair is dry, boost volume further with Your Hair Assistant Volume Creator, a styling powder that builds natural volume and stops hair from ‘dropping’. The finished style should look full of volume, natural and artfully undone – as if created by a sea breeze,” says Angelo.
