Do you feel like us? …that a good hair day can put you on top of the world? This spring, there’s every opportunity to feel radiantly beautiful every day! When the catwalk designers presented the Spring 2014 collections, there were hairstyles for everyone. The Calvin Klein Collection plumped for wavy, medium brunette lengths that swept down over the models’ backs, while American designer Michael Kors suggested sun-kissed cheeks combined with romantically tousled chignons.
‘We’re seeing more movement in the hair: either curly or wavy depending on the natural hair structure,’ says Oriflame Global Hair Expert Karl Eklund. ‘But it should be controlled even if it is a bohemian or ‘messy’ look. For long hair, neatly centred chignons and low ponytails are on trend in the coming season. The side parting is also making a comeback.’
What’s the inspiration behind the looks?
– The inspiration is the 90s, when there was more volume and movement in the hair… but still slightly less than the 80s!
What are the top styles we should try for spring?
– Hair up in a loose chignon: not too tight but with some texture. Glamorous volume has made a comeback. If you have sleek, straight hair, emphasize your natural hair and keep it straight and parted at the side. Make sure your hair looks ultra-shiny! My favourite style is the glamorous volume style because it gives every woman a beautiful and very feminine look.

‘The first step is protecting the hair with a heat protecting lotion (Editor’s pick: HairX Heat Protection Lotion), then use a volume mousse (Editor’s pick: HairX Volume Mousse.) Blow-dry with a round brush and backcomb the hair a little at the roots, then spray with a volume hair spray. Done!’
