Fall Is In The Hair | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aToday’s Friday Fashion is Hair, the frame of our face. This year flower prints dominated the scene. We have seen flowers in clothing, flowers in upholstery, flowers on wallpapers and flowers between our hair. I bought many flower clips in all shapes and colors and I stuck them anywhere they looked good.

Braiding flowers, branches, and other items in the hair goes back as far as the Greeks and Roman civilizations. As matter of fact, this year fashion turned its eyes to ethnic groups, ancient cultures, religious icons of the Byzantines, Greeks, and Romans. Decorating hair with ancient medals, coins, rhinestone and flowers or butterflies have been part of the ethnic dressing up to emulate nature and history.

For 2014 fall I have seen free-flowing hair, short layered bob, and heavy layered long hair. The Italian hairstyle this fall is capricious, layered at the right point and softly wavy to give a sense of mischievousness.

2014 Fall colors are fun too. The model with long black hair seems to have a streak of green light across the bang, love it! Just enough green to add an interesting touch. The model with fiery hair is showing “Ombre” a revised “Shatush”, a way of coloring hair in two tones ending in a lighter color at the bottom. It is a stunning color if done professionally well, it is like painting a picture. However,  if shatush colors don’t blend well, the dye job will look like an overdue hair coloring.

I must say that even though the hair coloring and the cut styles are fun, there hasn’t been anything striking for quite sometimes. We all remember how Vidal Sassoon revolutionized the world of hairstyling. He was a British hairdresser who created a simple geometric, “Bauhaus-inspired” hair style, also called the wedge bob that women adopted for two decades and a lot of his products are still sold today, over forty years later.

“He wanted to change things ~ Vidal said ~ he wanted to eliminate the superfluous and get down to the basic angles of cut and shape”. They were all modern and low-maintenance cuts. The hairstyles created by Sassoon relied on straight, and shiny hair cut into geometric yet organic shapes that were entirely lacquer-free. ♢ (Excerpt from Wikipedia).
The world lost him in May 2012.
