IF YOU WANT TO STAY AHEAD OF THE GAME YOU NEED TO SWOT UP ON SPRING SUMMER 19’S HOTTEST HAIR TRENDS. HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE MONTHS AHEAD…
Fringes have been becoming more popular on the catwalks in recent years and for spring summer 19, it’s going to be heavy-set cut and crescent shaped. Giving wearers a versatility to style it in several ways, START by applying KMS TAMEFRIZZ STYLE PRIMER that nourishes hair and will prevent fringes from becoming flyaway and frizzy. Follow with THERMASHAPE Hotflex Spray to style and help work the hair into place then once the hair is dried. FINISH with HAIRSTAY WORKING HAIRSPRAY. Whether it’s a solid block fringe or tousled messy bangs, it creates a pliable base that you can work into the hair with your fingers.
Following on from the air-dry hair trend, waves for spring summer 19 aren’t to look overly ‘done’. Hovering somewhere between polished and slept-in, they have structure, gloss and shape but are not set or regimented. START with MOISTREPAIR Cleansing Conditioner. If you already have curly hair, STYLE it with a spritz of KMS CURLUP Bounce Back Spay to help to bend curls into their natural shape while all hair types will benefit from a helping of KMS THERMASHAPE HOT FLEX SPRAY to encourage curls into place. FINISH with KMS TAMEFRIZZ DE-FRIZZ OIL. It gets rid of static and provides humidity control so curls don’t start to appear matted or messy.
Color is becoming more prominent on the runways and everything from washed out rinses to colored braids were given airtime. To make the most of the color, START with COLORVITALITY Shampoo and STYLE with KMS ADD VOLUME STYLING FOAM to volumize the hair and ensure the best possible surface to create your colored masterpiece.
Follow with KMS THERMASHAPE 2-in-1 SPRAY and think about adding a curl – it will help show off the color and also encourage hair to mould into plaits and oversized updos. Alternatively, if you’re styling hair loose, KMS HAIRPLAY SEA SALT SPRAY gives hair guts and texture that lasts.
FINISH with your color of choice. KMS STYLECOLOR gives you the freedom to experiment with contemporary and moderate colors so whether you choose VINTAGE BLUSH, ICED CONCRETE or RAW MOCHA your punchy palette won’t go unnoticed.
Switch your parting and you’ve switched your style. A fast, fun and effortless way to dabble in a new trend, for spring summer 19 the middle parting was the big hitter.
Often paired with 70s style hippy hair, this season it’s about smooth, shiny hair that sits tight to the scalp and then tucked behind ears. What happens after that is up to the individual - a structured Marcel wave or left natural and loose, as long as it has a different vibe to what’s going on at the crown and hairline, you’ve nailed it.
Go-tos will be texturizing hair products like KMS HAIRPLAY MESSING CREME and SEA SALT SPRAY that give hair a workable grip – ideal for mid-lengths and ends. For the top sections that need to be mirror-like and flat, KMS HAIRSTAY MOLDING POMADE and HAIRSTAY ANTI-HUMIDITY SEAL will weightlessly keep hair in place and looking slick.
Overexagerated chignons and poufy buns that have a cone-like appearance cropped up at more than one show. A little bit Elizabethan, a little bit 60s, it’s a take on ‘done’ hairstyles but the flyaway finish and extra padding leave it feeling modern rather than nostalgic. Getting a good amount of oomph and volume into the hair is essential.
Backcombing is your secret weapon so START by using KMS ADD VOLUME LIQUID DUST to add oomph. Once you have hair that’s swollen to extremes, set it with KMS HAIRSTAY FIRM FINISHING HAIRSPRAY so none of that hard work falls flat. FINISH things off with KMS HAIRPLAY DRY WAX and your updo will look aerated, edgy and oh so 2019.
