Autumn/Winter Formal Party Hair Trends 2012
Now that the Autumn is well and truly here, make sure you are ready to lean into the new season with the hottest hair trends for formal party hair with tips from one of our exciting new trend alerts at Bliss – HEAD GAMES.
These classic, retro hairstyles reference the past with a choice of looks you can mix and match or choose a different updo hair style for each day.
Old favorite timeless hairstyles like the classic, retro plaits, rolls, and French pleats are worn modern not matronly – this is girl gangs meets the Railway Children! These formal hair up dos look like they have been slept on, and repositioned throughout the day. Fearne Cotton’s retro up do is spot on and looks like it’s been borrowed straight from the 60’s and Bridget Bardot.
Add a partial element to the look – we section off a roll, quiff, pleat, plait, or braid for a partial party hair look. Or accessorise your hair with on-trend headgear: ribbons, clips, turbans, caps, grips, headbands and scarves. Newly brunette, Lady Gaga’s brown hair is accessorised with a glitzy headband placed to look as if she just effortlessly threw it on.
Meanwhile Dani Minogue’s hair has been transformed to ‘50’s pin up girl’ thanks to the addition of a hairpiece to her short locks for an instant transformation that is perfect for any formal occasion.
Kelly Osbourne’s purple hair colour looks great in this slick topknot – Audrey Tatou works a similar updo and formal hair style.
Cat Deely shows how to work the hair trend with a classic braided plait – definitely one hairstyle for the work Christmas party!
She’s addicted to hair colour and here Christina Aguilera’s dip dyed ponytail extensions have been pulled back into this party ponytail. Using strands of purple dip dyed hair over the hair tie is an easy way to make this hairstyle look more formal.
