Coming out of fashion week, it’s easy to covet the designer clothes, beautiful hair and glamourous makeup seen on the runways. Unfortunately, most of us mere mortals can’t afford the high-end fashion spotlighted at the shows, but we can recreate Fashion Week looks at home for less. The experts at Barely Xtensions offer tips and advice to help everyone look and feel like a celebrity model – regardless of whether we’re actually strutting down the red carpet.
Romantic and Dreamy
Fashion Week saw trends that were fairytale dreamy, (etherial, high piled and flowing with flowers), this hair look is easy to recreate at home. Romantic looks were all over the runways, with dreamy half-up, half-down styles everywhere from Paris to London to NYC.
Slick and Sleek
Hair worn slick and sleek is definitely fleek. From slicked back down to sleek back buns were also popular on the runways, so grab some gel and hair elastics for a look that’s appropriate anywhere – from a big work meeting to a hot night club. Models were sporting all sorts of beautiful braids, including classic French, Dutch and fishtails. Buns were twisted from the nape up and get creative.
Another popular trend was super-long hair in all sorts of styles, from stick straight to luscious waves with bright colors woven in with natural hair for color bursts. Extensions – like the ones offered at Barely Xtensions – can help you get those perfectly enviable long locks, no matter how long your hair actually is and color play.
Rock the Accessories
Hair accessories are having a moment, with sparkly barrettes, glitzy bobby pins, and fancy headbands all spotlighted on the Fashion Week runways. Luckily, this trend is super easy (and affordable) to do at home. Find embellished hair clips at beauty supply stores like Sally Beauty Supply. Try layering multiple blinged-out bobby pins, rocking faux pearl barrettes or looking romantic with a soft, velvet headband, and your hair can look like a supermodel’s for less.
