Steal the Runway Hairstyles!

For this 2013 Spring and Summer season, add a little extra style to that hair! Below are some easy looks that made a big impression on the runway and with us at Barbizon of Akron. There is a look for everyone, so come find yours!

Low Rider: Chanel recently killed the runway with hair that was twisted at the back and then accented with a beautiful pearl accessory. Use a center part and keep hair out of the face. Very low maintenance, easy to do and you can change up the accessory to match any look!

Classic: The classic slicked back pony tail also made a huge impression. Both Jean Paul Gautier and Christian Dior opted for these styles. Gautier opted for a medium placed pony tail while Dior's models rocked a pony tail at the nape of the neck.

Ride the Wave: Many designers opted for a laid back look with natural waves. To compliment the model's faces, some used a center part, some had a side part and some rocked a sweeping side fringe.

Pin It: No, we're not talking about Pinterest! Balenciaga models rocked the runway with the front sections of hair pinned at the back of the head and accented with accessories. Another simple style and a fresh play on what has become a more classic look.

Headband: The always stylish Dolce & Gabanna decided to switch things up by tying beautifully patterned scarves around their models' hair. At the back, the hair was gathered into neat chignons.

Between these five looks, there is no reason to look drab when you can look fab! All of these styles are low maintenance, easy to do and flatter just about everyone! Try out each look and let us know how it goes.
