Fall 2012 may have seemed to fly by in the fashion world but us mere mortals are have just entered the season of falling leaves, over-eating and expensive purchases. Of course, this season also holds parties galore and here are the looks in hair styles you should sport if you want to be the trendy girl at those parties. Of course, we have included a way to make it your own style. So here we go with our hair style guide for fall 2012!
Hair Color : Blonde or brown?
Classic: Blonde is always a great choice for classic styles but if you happen to be ethnic then try a honey blonde or a color closer to the roots of the model on the left. If blonde isn’t your style try auburn brown.
Causal: Blonde would be too showy for you so brown is your best option. Go dark brown like chestnut.
Romance/vintage: Blonde is great for vintage but us romance types prefer browns in red hues.
Punk/ Rock: Either go white blonde or dark brown. White blonde is great for punk style because you can add color as soon as the weather warms up. For rockers, stick to dark hues and add a red ombre like the brunette model on the left.
Glam: Mix both with highlights!!
Bangs and I have always been friends and I love the look of them especially in my reddish brown hair (yep I went for romantic red). So what length is best for your style?
Classic: Your bang length should show some eyebrow, so stop bang length just above the brow for a more classic look.
Causal: Show some forehead so bang should stop about 1 inch before the eyebrow.
Romance/vintage: I always sweep my bangs to the side so bangs should be mid-way on your forehead.
Punk/ Rock: Take your bangs long so they hide your eyebrows and almost graze your eyes like the model on the right.
Glam: Stop bangs at eyelid so you can add eyeshadow for a even more glam look!!
The Pony Tail
This hair style appears trickier then just pulling your hair back and slapping on a scrunchie! Too low and you look like you came from the gym and too high means you are a reject from a Madonna video (Vogue anyone?) So here we go on pony tail position in any style.
Classic: Your ponytail should be about two to three inches above the nape of the neck (just above the ears). The point of this season’s ponytail is to show off the neck.
Causal: Ponytail at the nape of the neck is considered gym class fair. Take the ponytail to one inch from nape of neck (just below the ears) so it appears causal without feeling workout.
Romance/vintage: Because my hair is short and I am a romantic at heart, I line up my ponytail with my ears. It pull attention to those post earrings we love so much.
Punk/ Rock: Take your pony tail high but not too long. Your ponytail should just reach your shoulders. If your hair is short, then adjust it so it does reach the shoulder. This height will not work for punks who should wear pony to match with mid-ear.
Glam: Take it high and long like the model on the left!!
Braid, bun or twists?
Okay, these three styles all came back in this fall but of course, we can’t all embrace this style triad. So which style looks good in a bun and which style should revolt? Here is what style you should (and should not sport) this fall. So the right style for your type is (drum roll please):
Classic: The bun is your friend while twists may make you feel like a homeless person.
Causal: Twist away while the bun would make you feel too formal.
Romance/vintage: I love the bun and twisted my hair into short buns with ornaments so it can stand out (short hair sucks sometimes). Vintage style should go with the braid though and leave the bun and twists to someone else.
Punk/ Rock: Bun, never!! Punks should try twists because they look unkempt but stylish. Rockers should try random tiny braids on flowing hair so not to seem to polished (you are a rebel right?)
Glam: Twist? No way but you will gladly exaggerate a bun (a big as possible) and a braid (a thick as possible)!
Have fun making these styles your own and if you happen to try them at home then share it on our facebook page at TheFashionGoddess!! Next week, we take on fall shoes!!
