New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 Hair Trends Report:
Designer: Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 Collection
Hair by: lead stylists Allen Ruiz for Avon Advance Techniques
Hair Trend: Classic Ballerina Chignon
Inspiration: The look mirrors the Charlotte Ronson collection, which is inspired by a remake of 80’s style. The hair was created to evoke a fresh, young wispy look and a “just walked out of dance class at Julliard” look to play off her fabrics and bold designs.
How to get the hairdo:
Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.
Debra Messing’s head-turning look was one of the most beautiful seen at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Complimenting her dramatic red Michael Kors gown, star stylist Robert Vetica created a truly inspired low, asymmetrical ponytail shaped into a free-flowing cluster of curls that resembled an elegant chignon.
“It was all about style complemented by sensuous movement and healthy, natural-looking ease,” said Vetica. “A smooth, shiny texture was the essence of the look.”
The technique was as brilliant as the look, and was achieved without any curling or flat irons, using only Moroccanoil Treatment, Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, a blowdryer and a round brush.
To ensure smooth, natural-looking and weightless shine, Vetica first generously applied argan-oil infused, original Moroccanoil Treatment to Messing’s coarse textured, curly wet hair. “Her hair loves the ultra-light richness of Moroccanoil Treatment and it absorbs in instantly without any residue. There’s nothing else like it for this kind of shine,” said Vetica.
The Show: Carolina Herrera
The Trend: Fine-textured low twisted chignons with touches of delicate long strings of intricate seed-beads swept throughout strands of the hair.
The Inspiration: The Carolina Herrera Spring 2010 collection was inspired by intricate forms woven in Japanese baskets. The texture of the fabrics and prints was taken from patterns found in the details of these baskets. Colors including amber, rose and caramel were drawn from the waning light cast at the end of a summer’s day, with the luminous quality of this light reflected in the fabrics and embroidery used for evening.
The Hair: Orlando Pita, using Moroccanoil, created beautiful, fine-textured low twisted chignons with touches of delicate long strings of intricate seed-beads swept throughout strands of the hair. The looks, created with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, highlighted smooth elegance with a natural ease, texture and flow.
“We used argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to prime the hair and give it a natural-looking, frizz-free texture with a soft hold,” noted Pita. “The beads were designed to blend subtly through the hair; appearing almost as if they’re embedded in the strands themselves.” Pita plays with texture and keeps the look relaxed and piece-y, without stiffness or tight structure (Tip: Rather than using a brush to blow-dry strands, Pita mussed hair with his fingers as he blow-dried to enhance the tresses’ natural separation and create further definition.)
How to get the hairdo as seen backstage at Carolins Herrera:
Mark Townsend, Matrix’s celebrity stylist, helped “Mad Men” star January Jones get glam for the 2009 Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20, 2009. According to Townsend, “working with January for any event is always going to be fun and inspiring.”
Mark was blown away with the detail and craftsmanship that went into making January’s stunning Versace gown. “While getting January ready, we had the dress hanging close by so I could see it while doing January’s hair, and that proved to be the inspiration for her overall look,” says Townsend, who loved all the lines and cut-outs of the dress, and wanted the hair to have the same feeling.
Red carpet beauty scoop: get the look of Christina Applegate at the 2009 Emmy awards. Christina ‘s look was created by Makeup Artist: Joanna Schlip for Clarins.
The Makeup Look: Joanna was inspired by Christina’s dramatic, sweeping gown by Basil Soda when creating her makeup look. The vintage glamour of the navy stunner called for simple makeup that still made a statement. With her hair pulled back in a chic chignon, Joanna was able to play up Christina’s eyes with a sexy retro smolder, while keeping her skin fresh and lips softly pink. Like the dress, Christina’s makeup exuded a Brigitte Bardot 60’s cool, with a modern twist.

Skincare: To create a radiant glow, Joanna prepped Christina’s skin with three steps: First she cleansed with Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser. She then applied Clarins Multi-Active Day moisturizer, followed with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for smooth, hydrated, radiant skin.
Miranda Kerr’s hairstyle (in images below) reminds me of Kirsten Dunst’s hairstyle for the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards. Kirsten’s hair was styled there by Pantene’s celebrity hairstylist, Hallie Bowman. I don’t normally wear my hair up, it’s a habit I find very difficult to break. But, I must say, I wouldn’t mind to wear my hair like this (if I ever get invited to a red carpet event…a gal can dream:) I’ve first learned about The Mixed Textured Chignon by Hallie, and Marta calls it: ‘The modern Chignon’. This is a great alternative to the classic Chignon. Not too many people look great with their hair pulled tight and away from face like in a classic Chignon. It can look a bit harsh. Thoughts?

Who is better to ask what’s hot when it comes to hair this fall other than the hair stylists who spend their time doing hair for the runway, ghd Ambassadors: Omar Lopez, Craig Carter, and Andy Bodine.
ghd Ambassadors Omar Lopez, Craig Carter, Andy Bodine, were kind enough to share with Talking Makeup their take on Fall Hair Trends:
From Omar Lopez, ghd Media Ambassador: Movement Is Back with Curling Just The Ends
Movement is back in, but this season, the focus is all on curling just the ends of the hair which is simple and sleek and easy to do. Prep the hair with ghd fat hair lotion and blowdry. The product is heat activated and works the same way mascara does on lashes, using rayon micro fibers to pump up each strand. Play up overall volume by applying from roots to ends, then follow with a little more on just the ends of the hair. This will plump up ends and allow for long lasting fat curls.

Use the ghd IV styler to straighten the length of the hair, then when you reach the ends, turn the styler 180 degrees to create a slight curl. Finally, use just your fingers to ruffle up the ends to create a slightly tousled look and you have one of the hottest looks for fall!
