Although we literally have to wait for more than one month until the official spring season begins, we have decided to anticipate things a little bit. For that, we give you the latest Spring/Summer 2012 hairstyle trends as presented by Daily Makeover.
Waves represent the most powerful trend of the upcoming season. The short bob seems to have been completely forgotten by hairstylists as the majority of them have opted for long locks in 2012. Natural looks are to be preferred to any other type of long hairstyles, so opt for soft, slightly laidback waves like the ones introduced by Givenchy and Chloé or try the retro-fabulous, glossy curls proposed by Versace.
Fashion designers have become more and more indulgent with women in the past years or, at least, this is what it looks like judging by the natural hairstyles they have chosen for 2012. Now you no longer have to worry about bad hair days because the classic ponytail is in. Some designers opted for a sleek ponytail, others for a more ruffled version, so you can choose whatever style suits you.
Buns continue to be one of the most appreciated hairstyles of the warm season. Each model on the catwalk had a different style, so you can wear anything from messy low knots like the ones in Phillip Lim’s collection to the wild French twists from Badgley Mischka. Wet chignons are perfect for those summer days you spend at the pool which is why they were present in most collections.
A quick way to take your hair from dull to dazzling is to adopt a side-swept hairstyle. Whether you let your hair loose or you gather it in an updo, you will look more elegant with the side-parting.
After seeing them in most fashion collections last year, braids have gradually lost their charm in 2012. Very few designers chose to continue this trend and it was usually the super-feminine wraparound French braid that prevailed. If you want to learn more about this trend watch Valentino’s collection.
