Hot For Fall: Androgynous Hair
How does that 90’s song go again? “Girls who are boys, who like boys to be girls….” Blur’s biggest pop hit could have been referencing fall’s hottest hair trend – androgyny.
“We’re seeing a lot of androgynous ‘girl meets boy’ slick, gelled back looks – nothing too sensual,” says Antonio Corral Calero, artistic director at Moroccanoil. “This is something we’ll see a lot of for fall moving into winter. It’s all about a strong side part.”
Of course, androgyny in the fashion world is nothing new – since the 1990’s, faces like Stella Tennant, Agyness Deyn and Freja Beja Erichsen have been pushing gender boundaries with their waif-like frames and borderline masculine style. But most recent seasonal trends have shied away from the look, favoring long, texturized strands worn by Giselle and “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively. But if you’re not running for your cutting shears just yet, fear not. You can always opt for the total opposite seasonal trend noted by Corral Calero – big, bouncy hair.
“The contrast from androgyny for fall is the sexy bead head in the form of big, soft waves in the face,” he says. “The key here is hot rollers, they are a must. You can do your makeup, and then take them out and brush your hair back and get volume throughout.”
