Fresh from wowing crowds at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week recently, ghd has identified six key styling trends for Spring/Summer 2009.
Expensive Hair at Julie Grbac
Expensive Hair celebrates big glossy curls that wouldn’t look out of place on the red carpet while Texture sees flowing blow-dryed locks morph into wet-look tresses. The Texture trend was perfectly exhibited by Jon Pulitano on the runways of Friedrich Gray’s RAFW show where the hair started with a smooth flowing texture before morphing into an ultra wet look.

Textured Bun is an update on a classic with teasing and backcombing creating a halo effect. This modern take on a sleek bun is achieved by injecting the look with lots of texture that shines perfectly when the light catches it.

Elegant Up-styles champions super polished French rolls and chignons – super polished hair is draped into modern French rolls or elegant chignons for a slick evening look. The hair look at WILLOW’s fashion week show featured a deep side part with a low off-centre chignon – a fine example of this trend.

Back to the 80s sees a return to the quiff, side swept locks and faux undercuts; think power shoulders, leather and bubble skirts as seen on the runways of Balmain and Louis Vuitton. Anna & Boy’s RAFW show featured a rockabilly vibe with polished quiffs throughout. The humble Pony is also back but with a modern ‘S’ bend effect as exhibited at Therese Rawsthorne’s RAFW show.
