new for 2014!

Be on trend for 2014!

 

This month directors of Greg Malloy Hairdressing, Greg Malloy and Ashley Taylor give you their take on the upcoming hair trends for 2014.

Firstly I think many of you have reduced the use of straighteners and I know in salon we have used them much less in the latter part of 2013. This is good as it will lessen the damage to your hair and improve the quality and condition of your hair. The great news is waves are in and they are to be tousled; even dare I say slightly frizzy! Think mermaids! The best way to achieve this look is to ensure you have asked your hairdresser to add layering to your hair to give it movement and body and then blow-dry it quite roughly and then use product to get the desired look. The key to this is not to use too much product and get the one that works for you. A good way to maintain this look is to plait your hair overnight and then you will wake up with the right effect.

This leads me to the next look. 2014 hair is going to have the bohemian look, plaits and twists and loose hair. Last year I touched on hair ornamentation but this year it is going to get bigger and bolder. Valentino and Dolce and Gabana have heavily featured hair accessories in their summer collections with flowers, coins and material scarves all woven into their messy updos and wavy long haired models. Much like ladies accessorise an outfit with the right handbag you will now see that concept extend to the head wear.

The ever popular bob will still feature heavily bit will be worn wavy and messy or uber sleek and tucked behind the ears. Leading fashion houses Chanel and Dior have seen their models sashaying down the catwalk with a wet look bob sleek and shiny and invariably tucked behind one or both ears. This is a striking look for those who have good facial shape with nice eye contour. Middle partings known as “model partings” are in fashion again and can be seen on every major catwalk this season.

Finally for those who chose to ties their hair back frequently the hype is all about the low ponytail. This is secured as low as is possible in the nape of the neck and again this is suitable either messy and soft or super sleek!

Hopefully this will give you something to consider when planning your look for the next 12 months. Check out the Greg Malloy gallery for an example of these looks.

Weddings!!

I am now knee deep in wedding season and would like to wish all the best to my brides this week. I have a few wedding tips and trends to share this week based on my recent wedding hair experiences.

Jewelry is becoming much more popular and I am increasingly pinning in necklaces (as something old or borrowed) and broaches. This weekend I worked with some fabulous headlaces designed to sit at the temples, they were very Kim Kardashian and looked beautiful and very original.

Also my top tip for hair accessories is to try your local haberdashery store to find buttons that can be easily looped onto grips and popped into wedding hair. They will have a selection and they are much cheaper than other shops that sell wedding hair accessories!!

I hope this gives prospective brides some inspiration. Happy wedding planning!!!

Hair Care

Make sure to nourish your hair today in preparation for the summer! A treatment or two at this time of the year is advisable, especially if you have your hair chemically lightened. Hair masques are a good way to nourish dehydrated ends. Ask your hairdresser for advice on which will suit your hair type as picking the wrong one can have a detrimental effect on your locks! Give your hair a treat today.

I recommend Alterna masques (from £25) or a more cost effective alternative is L’Oreal Mythic hair masque (£16) For deeper cleanse place a plastic cap over your head after application and leave it on for 15mins before rinsing.

Good Luck,

Greg x
