Fall Hair Trends 2008 - Part 1

Gucci Fall 2008

DIY: For a quick do-it-yourself option
As shown on, before bedtime, mist just-washed, damp hair with a leave-in conditioner and a volume-boosting aerosol spray (an aerosol spray will dry soft, and won't leave hair hard and crunchy). Then twirl one-inch sections of hair into spiral braids and let them dry overnight.Short on time? Here's how Fashion Week tress masters create the look in a crunch: Wrap one-inch sections of hair around a medium flatiron, alternating the direction each spiral. “You're just kind of haphazardly wrapping pieces and dropping them,” says Harry Josh, a hairstylist and spokesperson for John Frieda. “When you shake them out you'll get a really nice, loose, ropy wave and it'll hold all day.”

DIY: Sure, YSL’s mod mushroom cut might be too severe for your au naturel sensibility, but there is something to be said for chunky locks! “Choppy layers enhance bone structure, especially cheekbones,” says Guido Palau, who styled hair at Ralph Lauren. After applying a thickening lotion to damp hair, he blow-dried sections using a paddle brush and finished with a flat iron, creating “an even texture with absolutely no frizz.”

DIY: Variations of the French twist ruled the fall runways. To achieve the side-swept twist created by Aveda stylists at 3.1 Phillip Lim, blow-dry hair straight, then part on the side. Take a lock of hair and, starting from behind the right ear, create a French braid running left to right (this will serve as an anchor for your twist). Fasten braid with an elastic behind the left ear. Slightly twist the hair and sweep it over to the left side of the head, securing in place with bobby pins along the braided base.

DIY: There’s no hiding behind your hair with this look! But while this pulled-back style puts your face in the spotlight, Palau promises it’s totally wearable (Zac Posen’s models loved the sleek updo so much, they sported the style long after clearing the catwalk). To get this look at home, Palau suggests using “loads of gloss” to create a “patent leather texture.” Gel and hairspray couldn’t hurt either!
