New York Fashion Week (currently in progress) has brought us a beautiful array of ready-to-wear collections for Spring 2013 — but what about trends that are “ready-to-spa?”
Here at Spa Week, we like to be both fashionable AND practical, and we all know what a dilemma it can be to have to choose between a workout and a blowout, or a lazy afternoon at the spa vs. a cute outfit. Luckily, many of the trends from this week’s runway shows can work in our favor. These styles can work on post-workout hair, pre-spa appointment hair, and everything in between.
Check out these spa-friendly hairstyles below:
Deep side parts were a huge trend this year, and in our opinion, Altuzarra perfected the prettiest spa-ppropriate way to wear this look. Slicked back hair knotted tightly into a pretty French bow at the nape of the neck creates a stylish look that is still totally practical for spending an afternoon lying on a massage table.
Loosely knotted ballerina buns at Christian Siriano may have been our favorite hair look on the runway this year. The actual collection was filled with pretty pinks and light fabrics, and the buns complemented this beautifully. Aveda Global Director Antoinette Beenders created this look and describes it as “tailored whimsy” – we like!
If you’ve loved all the fun braids of 2012 (fishtail, anyone?!) then the intricate look at Jason Wu might just wu you. From the front the hair appears to be smooth and is pulled into an “African braid,” with a precisely placed wave on one side of the head. The beautiful braids are tight to the head and will easily keep hair out of your face for any Spa Week appointment.
Alexander Wang never fails to amaze with his uniqueness, and this year certainly provided us with the most interesting hair trend. We’re not sure this is a look you’d head to the spa (or anywhere, for that matter) in, but just for fun check out the white and black tape worn over the models’ parts – it glows in the dark!
We think these looks are perfectly spa-chic! Will you try and wear any of these runway styles to your $50 Spa Week treatments, or anywhere else?
