Hair Envy: Candela Novembre

Italian fashion maven Candela Novembre's hair truly is something to write home about! Yes its a 'LOB' (long bob) and its perfectly undone wave is spot on. For me there is nothing chicer than a pulled together outfit with artfully messed hair, (I'm not one for a perfect blowout) and I think Candela is stealing Alexa Chung's crown in this department! The center part and the longer length at the front gives a fresh current take on a traditional bob but it still feels effortlessly classic and timeless! Give her a google and she will soon become your latest hair muse! XO, CM

Hair Trend: 1960'S CHIC

 
 

British bombshell Suki Waterhouse's hair in her recent shoot in Lucky Magazine really captured my attention; I love anything 1960's style related, especially some voluminous hair! What is so appealing about the look that she is sporting is its imperfection, and I'll tell you why-because its achievable! If I can do it, so can you. I asked my friend and make-up artist Amy Weissenberg for a short cut, easy guide to get the Suki's 60's look.

WhAT YOU NEEd:

  • Day old hair
  • Dry shampoo
  • A teasing brush
  • Bobby pins
  • L'oreal Elnett hairspray

Put your hair into a center part (this gives it the modern, Brigitte Bardot/Suki look) and liberally spray your roots with dry shampoo, focusing especially on the crown of your head. Then backcomb the crown of your head with your teasing brush concentrating on the roots and top of your head. Grab your pins and pin back your hair like a half up down hair-do (but in this case we have lots of volume on the crown from the dry shampoo and back combing!). If you have bangs leave them out, I like to leave two pieces around the front of my face to tuck behind my ears to give that mussed up undone look that Suki is wearing. If you want your hair to have a little bend or kick to the ends. grab your hot iron or curling iron and loosely wrap the ends for a little movement. Finish with hairspray. Voila!

Sienna Miller, Suki Waterhouse, Felicity Jones, Alexa Chung and the queen of mussed up sex pot locks Bridgette Bardot, have all successfully sported my current hair obsession, the grown out bang, Center parted and imperfectly perfect, the grown out bang gives its wearers the ultimate peekaboo, coquettish allure! As a lover of all things 1960's and kitsch, I declare the grown out bang is BANG on trend!

BEAUTY TRENDS: THE BOB

Screen shot 2013-01-27 at 12.03.13 PM

For years I have been on a never ending quest for long, lightly layered, surfy style locks. I have spent countless hours on my hair experimenting with salt sprays, dry shampoos and curling irons of different shapes and sizes, to achieve a look like makes me look like I just rolled out of bed. Victoria's Secret model hair is my main aim (HA! I can but dream). If some of you are confused as to why I would yearn for VS hair I'll tell you that it's the Ying to my tomboy clothes' Yang. However I more than sat up and took notice when one of my tousled hair VS icons Karlie Kloss chopped off her miraculous honey blonde mane for a messy short bob. It looks fresh, current and youthful and makes the rest of the VS surfy hair gang look a little, dare I say it, passe! I am not quite ready to lop my long hair off just yet, but a generous trim is definitely on the cards :)

THE TOP KNOT

I hate looking like I have tried to hard when dressing up for the evening, there is nothing worse than feeling over done and too formal; it feels aging and old fashioned. I always admire Alexa Chung and Kate Bosworth's relaxed approach to beauty and swoon over their red carpet moments which tend to include lusted after designer dresses offset with natural, almost scruffy hair. One hairstyle that I am particularly loving right now and sporting regularly is the top knot. Playful, youthful and fun (see above on Aussie super Jess Hart) the top knot will give you that burst of fun to your night time look. It is so easy to achieve, all you need is a hair bobble (dear US readers, that's a hair tie!) and some dry shampoo. Spray hair with said dry shampoo, pull hair up high onto head, twist into a bun and wrap hair bobble around bun. Done. xo
