Here – we’ve made it easy for you. After a fabulous (and maybe disorienting) week of New York Fashion Week S/S 2017 blowing up our social media, the Blowtique team is here to break it down and give you the major trends on our personal style agenda.
UNDONE, LOW KEY ELABORATE
Down low, low key, however you want to put it, the way to make a statement this year is not to. The way to master this undone look is to pull together an unfinished twisted pony or knot with most of, but not all of, your hair. This is even simpler than the half-up top knot. Think of it as a half-down twist – it can be as uncomplicated, or complicated as you like.
I know what you’re thinking – every time you try to pull together the undone look it turns out flat instead of elegant. Blowtique can help with this! Make an appointment with one of our master stylists and we’ll give you that casually elaborate appearance.
RAIN CRUMBLES INTO GLITTER
Yes, that is a Frank Ocean reference. It is now also a NYFW (S/S 2017) reference. We saw a lot of wet hair on the runway, and whether the goal was sexy sweaty or caught in the pouring rain, what stuck with us was the glittery shine of slicked back locks. Pair this with smudgy eye shadow or liner and you’ll be sure to make a statement.
SURFER BOY BEAUTY
All beach, everything.
Making an appointment with Blowtique is easier than dunking your head in salt water – trust me.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: HIDDEN BRAIDS OR HAIR DRESSING
Make a statement by quietly revealing a secluded surprise or go full on party stopper with fanciful hair decor. Whichever one you choose, you’re sure to turn heads.
Jonathan Simkhai‘s models were subtlety astonishing with woven braids hidden in very textured hair.
Rodarte had a very different take on hair dressing – by using excess strips of fabric from the dresses, master hairstylist Odile Gilbert created barrettes and reverse headbands to be worn on top of soft, silky hair.
