Why one hair story when you can have an entire series of styles? Haute Couture Hairdos fall winter 2013 2014.
Thought Jean Paul Gaultier is famous for his greatest Haute Couture hair show on earth today. If the couture didn’t say enough, the hair surely did. Cheetah print hairstyles, hats with buns, and curlers, the greatest hair show on earth took place at Jean Paul Gautier’s Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 show.
There were several masterpieces, from the structural genius in high conical whips to the swag buns acting as beautiful. Then there were the leopard print chignons and twists a nod to the new hair coloring and paint washing trend we’ve spotted for the last two seasons, but this time with a little more craze and craft.
The hair circus was good it didn’t even needed much makeup. So far at almost all the couture shows the models wore tight, back combed hairstyles. No romantic fuss, only abstract hairstyles with all attention on the couture itself. But this year was different; the hairstyles at Chanel are the most striking. The hair is put into a quiff style role in a Grace Jones-like way, but a more modern than the 80s. The tight roll is combined with separate hats , fits well with the theme of the show: Futurism meets folklore
The models of the Giambattista Valli show look cool with the half ponytail. The wet-look ensured that the pink dresses did look less sweeter and then there where the eye-catchers; the shining golden crowns, a princess look. And if you look closely, you can see that there are flowers, violins and angels on the crown.
At Alexis Mabille’s show there where catchy hair accessories. The contrast with the extreme forms of the couture and the hair accessories is big, but make the impression a bit more relaxed. The hats are a bit 1920’s
