Whilst most of London goes about its daily business, a select few of us are gathering around catwalk live streams on our computers and following all of our favourite models on Instagram. Why? Because it’s that time of year. No, not Christmas… Fashion Month!
The beauty looks of the shows set the precedent for the year ahead and even though London Fashion Week was over in the blink of an eye, Noughty is here to do the hard work for you by rounding up the looks set to be the next big thing.
Fashion week saw an array of styles, from the eccentric (pearl-adorned barrettes and embellished headbands) to the downright crazy (think animé-inspired pink bobs and pastel buzzcuts). But don’t worry, we’ve sifted through the outlandish backstage hair to find you the most wearable styles.
Halpern Studio’s half crimp
These liquid-smooth waves are easier than you think to recreate and the perfect sleek style to attempt before a night out with friends. You’ll only need a pair of straighteners and a helping hand from Noughty to create this frizz-free half and half style. To ensure fly-aways are properly kept in place, first use Noughty’s To The Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner to nourish and hydrate. Before blow drying, spritz in some Thirst Aid Conditioning and Detangling Spray to help rid hair of tricky knots. Next, apply Rise and Shine Hydrate and Shine Serum, for ultimate shine and to protect from heat up to 220 degrees. Blow dry as normal and set your straighteners on 175c. Take sections of the hair and curve it around the straighteners, first over and then under. This over-under style technique will ensure defined, smooth waves. Once you have done this all the way around the top half of your hair, straighten through the mid-lengths and ends. Finish with a small pump of Rise and Shine Hydrate and Shine Serum, smoothed over the mid-lengths and ends, to give a polished and glossy look.
Roland Mouret’s just-woke-up-like-this curls
If there’s one key takeaway from the beauty trends at London Fashion Week it’s that natural hair is having its moment. Often is the case that messy, textured hair is actually harder to create than a sleeker style, but the look can be achieved using three simple steps. First, to ensure bouncy and wondrous waves start with Noughty’s Wave Hello Shampoo and Conditioner. Now comes the magic – use Noughty’s new Hello Curls Define and Reshape Curl Primer before any styling products. The primer will make your styling products work harder and perfectly prime hair ready for curls. Whilst hair is still wet add a palm-sized amount of Noughty’s Wave Hello Curl Defining Taming Cream. Work through your hair and make sure to scrunch whilst you’re doing this to achieve maximum curl definition. To dry we recommend using a T-shirt or microfiber towel to soak up any excess water, and either dry as normal or use a diffuser to achieve those messy, volumised curls. Flip your hair forward and back and watch those curls POP.
Michael Kors’ disco hair
Remember those crimpers you got when you were 8 years old and ultimately threw in the back of your wardrobe? FIND THEM. Sure, you might not want to go as avant-garde as Michael Kors but crimping is the style of the season for voluminous hair. Ready to give it a go? Start with Noughty’s Pumped Up Shampoo and Conditioner which uses red grape extract and B5 vitamins, to make fine limp hair a thing of the past. Apply a pea-sized amount of To The Rescue Anti-Frizz Serum, to protect hair from heat when crimping. Provided you don’t get dizzy, flip your hair upside down to blow dry through roots and ends. Once fully dry, section your hair and very carefully start to crimp hair from top to bottom, making sure you don’t miss any bits. The key to this style is to have big messy hair, so once crimped give it a good zhooshing up and leave the smoothing serums for another day.
