This minute hair ideas!

The Spring Summer '13 runways were full of fresh, inspiring hair ideas. So we decided to show you the ones that looked best!


The Super-Low Ponytail
Models at the Rochas runway were seen sporting ultra-low ponytails. To get, prep hair with a texture spray (try the Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray, `525). Part hair and blow-dry using a round brush. To give hair the ultra sleek effect, use a straightening iron, then pull hair in to a loose pony, fanning out the top portion with your fingers.

The Low Embellished Chignon
To achieve this pearl-adorned chignon, as seen at Chanel, prep your hair with a texturising spray gel (we love the Sebastian Professional Texturizer, Rs 1,150) to give it some character. Make a centre part and tie a low ponytail. Divide hair into three sections, then cross the outer section on each side and secure with elastic, right under the crisscross. Now take the remaining section and pin it underneath. Pin a large pearl (we found pearl clips, at Shoppers Stop, Rs 50 for two) right where the knot meets the nape of your neck.

The Smooth Top
Ditch the bounce and give your hair a smooth, J Mendel inspired look. Part hair down the middle and use a holding spray only at the crown. Use a fine-toothed comb to create visible lines, then take rest of the hair behind the ears. Use a flat iron over hair sections, both towards and away from the head, producing a natural wavy effect. Tame frizz with a serum like Sebastian Taming Elixir, Rs 1,300.

The Sicilian Loop
Suiting the Silician summer feel at Dolce & Gabbana, models wore bright scarves over vintage updos. To cop, first apply mousse to semi-dry hair and blow-dry. Tie a scarf around your head, leaving the ends open, and twist the hair, folding the ends under to form a loop. Roll it up and secure with pins. Placing one hand below the bun, push the hair upwards to form a slight bump right above the scarf.

The Girly Braid
This one minute hair do, as seen on the Balmain runway, is easy to master and works well on medium-hair lengths. All you need is a texturising spray (try
the label.m Sea Salt Spray, `1,000) and two rubber bands. Spray a texturising spray on almost-dry hair, then blow-dry using fingers. Secure hair with an elastic band at the nape of the neck, then braid and tie hair with a second rubber band. Press the braid between your palms to make it flat. Pull out random sections from the front to make it appear messy.

The Embellished Waves
Hair got modern-glam at Balenciaga with gold metallic hairpieces. To re-create, part hair down the middle and take two inch sections from above each ear. Pin these sections together at the crown. Take a rounded gold hairpiece or hairband, and secure it right above the pin. Finish by taking out some face framing strands.

The Textured Ends
At Versace, models were seen in natural, slightly undone hair, which became wavy towards the ends. To achieve this effortless look, mist hair with a styling foam (like the Sebastian one, below) and partially dry. Make a centre parting and twist it with your hands. Secure in place with a pin. Right before stepping out, remove the pin and spray dry shampoo to create a matte effect.
