Hair Trends — Fall/Winter 2011

Choosing the perfect hairstyle that matches your personality can sometimes be a real challenge. If you take a look at the four fall/winter 2011 main hairstyle trends, I am sure you will find one that would flatter your facial traits and reflect your character!

This season was all about empowering women to explore different sides of their personalities – almost like characters playing roles. There are four standout trends, and a woman could wear any of them depending on the role she wants to play that day. She can further personalize her look by adding layers that frame the face, or pulling pieces of hair out from around a style.” — Guido, Redken’s Hair Guru(!)

The 1960s are one era that’s always ripe for reinvention – Guido used different products to give the decade’s classic looks a thoroughly modern spin.

Controlled styles with a refined sense of glamour added a new edginess to this season’s sharply focused styles.

Typically masculine elements – deep side parts, quiffs and more – lent a new glamour to runway hairstyles this season.

Whether up or down, this season’s feminine styles had a fresh perspective and contemporary appeal.

Guido identified four main hairstyle trends on the runway this season, but among them, the ponytail (high, low, messy, strict..) and the chignon remained the two leading updos.
Which one of these hairstyles do you prefer? Will you adapt one of them to your everyday hairdos?
