The natural look is playing a huge role with designers for the spring,” says Naz Kupelian, a RUSK celebrity stylist who owns an award-winning, full service salon and spa in the Greater Boston area, as well as his own product line. The Roberto Cavalli spring show had fresh faced models with middle parted, loosely flowing, natural hairstyles. The best part of this “effortless” look is that it is easy to create. Style your hair in a low bun, and let it set for a few hours. Release the bun for seemingly effortless natural waves.

Another option is the low messy bun which is quick, easy and very elegant. Louis Vuitton models for the spring runway sported the low bun with side swept bangs.

“Fashion Week gives us plenty of ideas for you girls to look trendy yet fashionable for their special occasions,” says celebrity hairstylist David Babaii. Do opt for two great trends, says Babaii. The first being ultra-straight but very shiny hair that moves with you and is not plastered with hairspray. The next is a great bun that is either braided or simply slicked back. Either look can be simple or add a beautiful hair accessory to glitz it up.

RUNWAY-WORTHY HAIR TIP: Always test your look out before the prom so you know exactly what style is best for you. Never ‘overdo it’ with too much product and NEVER make a drastic change right before the big day!
