We're not talking about the loud colors, crazy shapes or textures seen on the the runway. Instead, we are highlighting the simple, elegant and timeless styles that are suitable for any and every type of client. The key word here is minimalism for Spring/Summer 2015.
1. CHIC SIDE-SWEPT PONYTAIL: Diesel
Hair design by Redken Creative Consultant, Guido
"My job as a hairdresser is to update the ponytail to make it more relevant for today’s woman. This ponytail that I created for Diesel is very groomed and classic, but slightly futuristic. The two distinct textures – shiny and matte – and the deep side part make it a very depersonalized, exact look." – Redken Creative Consultant, Guido
2. BRAIDED CHIGNON: Tadashi Shoji
Hair design by Rodney Cutler
At Tadashi Shoji's ethereal, Venice-inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon designed classic beautiful styles. The chignon gets a mini makeover with a braid at the nape of the neck."
3. BRAIDED FIGURE-EIGHT UPDO: Bibhu Mohapatra
Hair design by L'Oreal Professionnel Artist Amir Abraham
“The play on textures and the variations of braids and chignons embrace Nancy Cunard’s far-reaching influences, ranging from Africa to 1920s Paris,” commented Abraham. “Tribal braids are coupled with a lady- like chignon and a braided crown to create a modern iconoclastic look.”
4. BARELY THERE PONYTAIL: Delpozo
Hair design by Global Creative Director for Moroccanoil, Antonio Corral Calero
"The main inspiration for show, is very unique and modern, so I decided to keep consistency by creating a geometric line and keeping the hair completely straight. Through my eyes, the Delpozo woman is the epitome of modern and geometric with a feminine touch" – Antonio Corral Calero
5. SLEEK WET LOOK: Michael Costello
Hair design by Linh Nguyen for CHI
“The collection is very clean and polished using a lot of textiles. With a lot going on, I wanted the hair to reflect a really sophisticated girl who just popped out of the shower with glistening and shiny hair that is clean and polished.” – Linh Nguyen
6. BALLERINA KNOT UPDO: Novis
Hair design by Aveda Guest Arist Frank Rizzieri
"This is the bun of that cool girl who just happened to easily twist her hair up and off of her face. It has natural pieces poking out, so it's not too perfect. It's definitely graphic, different, but simple-looking to match the details of the clothes but not take away from the collection." – Frank Rizzieri
7. DEFINED MIDDLE PART: Houghton
Hair design by Adam Markarian for Oribe Hair Care
“Houghton designer Katharine Polk imagined a girl borrowing her guy’s clothes after spending the night, so the hair and makeup reflect that.” Markarian created a clean center part and sleek, flatironed hair to complement the clothes. “This season it’s all about soft, shiny, super luxurious hair for Houghton.” – Adam Markarian
8. VOLUMINOUS CURLS: Georgine
Hair design by Ric Pipino for Alterna Haircare
A vision of distinctly '70s glam a la Bianca Jagger for the Georgine spring/summer 2015 runway show. Think: A woman going to get cocktails after a daylong beach binge.
9. TOUSLED WAVES: Jill Stuart
Hair design by Celebrity Stylist James Pecis for Moroccanoil
The hair look for this collection are sexy and luxe Jerry Hall-like waves with a fresh, youthful twist—evoking the idea of unleashing your inner animal.
