What started out as a trend that everybody thought would soon turn into a fad doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! … I think people love the Ombre look because, besides being very low maintenance, it allows people to play with colours while keeping the colour that’s most flattering for your complexion near your face! Although Ombre started out as a trend around two years ago, it is now starting to be seen as a more mainstream look as regular women all over the world (not just celebrities and trend setters) are embracing the look. According to Yahoo News “2013 is the year the ‘Ombre Hair Trend’ will become the definitive look, as more and more women try Decolour Ombre kits at home”. Personally, I am thrilled about this as I started out with a subtle Ombre look last year and I am no where close to wanting to retire the trend!

Not just the sea of gorgeous dresses, shoes and purses … but especially the pretty hair and makeup!

During the spring/summer fashion weeks this hair trend was seen all over runways and recently it’s being spotted more and more on celebrities! The ‘slicked back’ hair style is so effortless yet chic and has become one of Spring/Summer 2012’s hottest hair trends! This style is a great way to bring out your eyes and cheek bones without putting your hair in a ponytail or updo. I personally love it because I get bored of hairstyles easily and there’s only so much of switching your part from a middle part to a side part and back to a middle part that you can do … with this style there’s no part! The look is reminiscent of when you come out of the pool with wet hair and push it straight back to get it out of your face … which I love right now because it reminds me of summer and I’m oh so tired of our rainy winter days here in Cape Town right now!Continue reading

Do you guys remember the days … way back in the 80’s … when you could just flip your hair to the side and voila; you had the coolest hairstyle ever! I guess it actually depends on how old you are, but I totally do! (And I’m totally aging myself here!). As soon as my hair was long enough to, (and my mother let me wear my hair down), I was wearing my hair this way. (Making it possibly the first trending hairstyle I ever wore!) Well guess what! You know how they say fashion repeats itself? … It seems to be back
