We asked David Gillson, director and celebrity stylist at Carlton Hair, for his pick of the hair styles to look out for this winter.
Here is his trends forecast:
Japanese inspired, Geisha-style structured up-dos, such as the oversized croissant buns as seen at the latest Chanel runway show.
Secret pockets or panels of unusual bright pop colour, such as reds and blues, that are not visible to the naked eye, were also seen at a recent Oscar de la Renta show featuring up-styles with bits of blue.
Style star: Soo Joo Park
At the latest Gucci campaign it’s the revenge of the nerds! Colour is solid but flat and matte with no shine: matte brown, slate ash brown or cool chestnut red.
Hair accessories are hot here, such as hair grips and pins to get the nerdy look.
Finish it off with this season’s biggest hair trend: the micro fringe is back.
Style star: w&h’s favourite Gucci geek is Florence Welch.
The shag is the backlash against last season’s wavy LOB (long bob). The cut is loose and layered but straight, making it even more conservative.
Hair must look completely natural, as if no colouring has been done. Davines Ammonia-free colour and Flamboyage technique is safe and offers a natural tone. Products must have a super light effect that make it look as if no styling products have been used.
Ethnic hair tip: It is time to embrace the natural texture of the natural state of ethnic hair. No more weaves! Just add volume for more va va voom!
Style star: Dakota Johnson
As seen at recent Balmain and Balenciaga campaigns, the most daring but glamourous look with harsh lines and strong colour from black (deep indigo or navy), to bleached white or electric red. Here the micro fringe is the ultimate rebellious statement.
Star style: Lady Gaga and Cara Delevigne. w&h loves Kristen Stewart’s new do, which looks punky and modern.
