If New York Fashion Week is any indication it would seem that the sleek blowout is back.
Hair was luxurious, chic, shiny, natural and slick. The only ripples on the runway were a few strategically placed, almost invisible, waves cascading down the back of the longer locks. With side partings and shoulder length plus, the models looked elegant and for once, the hair style is wearable.
Is it a fashion trend this year or is it more a New York vibe?
I have always felt that New Yorkers wear their hair straighter than Londoners. Londoners love a little bounce, a cascade of curls and volume. French women sit somehwere in the middle, but very rarely do they curl up in the same way that London girls do.
One of my can’t live without indulgences is a regular blow dry. For years hairdressers have been trying to entice me with mermaids tresses. Truthfully, they are just not me. The older I get, the straighter I like my hair. Not poker straight, but straight with a little volume.
I have admired well groomed and obedient hair for as long as I can remember and I am sure that is because nature did not intend me to have that.
Why oh why do we always want what we don’t have?
There is no cure, no response and no amount of good sense that will change my mind. I am a straight hair kind of girl, with a bit of bounce thrown in and if it means living in hair prison, then so be it.
Will you be wearing your hair straight? Heading to the hairdresser for that sleek blowout?
