Tired of the same old 'do you've been sporting for some time? Then give into change by taking inspiration from the biggest names in the fashion industry. From an alternative-styled pixie cut to a feminine layered look, here are 8 different hairstyles straight from the runway you should consider before booking your next salon visit.
Billy Reid's Soft Layers
If you're the type of girly-girl who can't seem to part with her long hair, but are tired of the same boring 'do, take a cue from Billy Reid's Spring 2013 show and consider adding soft layers that will frame your face and soften your features. Perfect for the long haired type, this romantic look will give limp locks added life and a feminine vibe.
Carolina Herrera's Modern Mid-Length
For her Spring 2013 collection, Carolina Herrera catered to the modern woman, which was also evident by the sharp one-length hairstyles sported by the models on the runway. If you are looking for a blunt change, this razor-sharp cut will give you just that. Ideal if you want to cut off a few inches without having to go bob or the layered route, this modern mid-length feels fresh and unique to every other cut out there.
Diane von Furstenberg's Wispy Bangs
If chopping off your hair induces mild panic attacks but you still want a change, consider cutting your bangs instead. Keep it of-the-moment by going for wispy bangs as seen at Diane von Furstenberg. Wispy bangs are softer and more romantic than the blunt variety and make for easy styling as you can push them aside or pin them with much more ease.
Rodarte's Edgy Angles
From classic and feminine to edgy and androgynous, Rodarte's Spring 2013 girl showed razor sharp angles that were slightly longer in front than in the back. What's great about this cut is that you can style it down the middle or a major side part, two entirely different styles that will showcase this asymmetrical cut. Although fashion-forward, the sharp angles keep this 'do perfectly suitable for the professional environment.
Just Cavalli's Tousled Bob
If you're looking to upgrade your look from sweet to sexy, consider a tousled bob like the one seen at the Just Cavalli show. Partially disheveled, this piecey look is meant to look messy so ask your stylist for a bob that feels more effortless, rather than neat and polished.
Marni's Alternative Pixie
As for those of you who favor the pixie style, give it a more modern edge this spring by copying Marni's rock 'n' roll-inspired cut. Choppier than before, this season's pixie favors uneven lengths, that essentially, and thankfully, make it easier to style and grow out later on. For maximum effect, style with your fingers by tussling your hair around and using grooming cream.
Burberry's Heightened Bang
One of the great things about bangs is that they add instant polish to any look. For example, the girls at Burberry's Spring 2013 collection rocked classically long bangs that start at the top of the head rather than at the forehead, a look that felt groomed and put together. Keep your cut contemporary rather than classic by keeping the rest of your hair piecey and on the wavy side.
Alexis Mabille's 80s 'Do
Bring back the 80s and in a big way by channeling Alexis Mabille's empowered woman. Think boyishly short but with bangs, this look is not only easy to style but will give your style instant fashion appeal. Shoulder pads not included.
