Chic Bob

It’s Autumn. The leaves are turning a golden red and we are back in our skinny jeans, layering up with knits and tailored jackets. It’s also the perfect time to give your hair an elegant update. After the carefree feel of Spring Layers and Summer’s Bad Girl Bob – the next step is the Autumn Chic Bob. Smooth, sleek, blunt cut beauty. This look is all about full, fierce cool.  Take it shorter at the back if you still crave layers or keep a little movement around the face, but the overall feel is simple and super classy.

Blow dry upside down for height at the root and then use flat irons for poker straight style. Use a serum to tame flyaways.

 We love Lee Stafford Poker Straight shampoo and conditioner.  They smell amazing, actually reduce the negative charge on the surface of your hair  and leave your locks silky and gorgeous. Boots – £5.99

Leopard Print = The New Black

21st Century Leopard Print is the new wardrobe basic. Thank Kate Moss for making it a style staple but season after season it’s still here – moving from directional to everyday with beautiful ease. No other print flatters all skintones, suits every season and adds a touch of sex appeal more……

Top SS15 Trends To Wear Now

Top SS15 Trends To Wear Now

With Paris Fashion Week completing what has been a busy round of shows around the globe, we showcase the strongest trends from next season. Get one step ahead and work these into your wardrobe now!

White

It was a white out across the board, with heavyweights such as Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, Chloe and of course Chanel sending pure white looks down the runway. Winter white looks incredibly chic so this is one trend that is definitely worth pulling out now.

Winter White Trend

Faux Fur

Starting in New York with Tommy Hilfiger and Coach, this trend reached fever pitch in London thanks to cool new brand Shrimps. Londoner Hannah Weiland is taking faux fur to the next level, truly cementing it as the desirable option over the real stuff. The perfect look to try over the chilly autumn months.

Sporty

This isn’t exactly new for SS15 but it is one designers have held onto- great news for those wanting to get ahead in the style stakes as you will probably have sporty styles in your wardrobe already! To give it a new season twist, focus on mesh detail, white and flatform shoes.

Suede Boots

The sexy 70s look that has exploded for AW14 continues for SS15. Buy now to wear with skinny jeans and a fedora, then pair with a loose mini dress and lots of Paris Left Bank attitude come spring.

Summer Hair – Bad Girl Bob!

The hottest Summer hair and perfect for the heat, is the Bad Girl Bob! Edgier, prettier and sexier than the longer layers of Spring, this style has it ALL going on! Think razored ends and serious movement. Light and flirty, it’s wild, out there, just- don’t- care hair – that wants to have alot of fun……

summer bob

 Julianne Hough – amazing texture and movement.

Dianna Argon – choppy edgy cool

 The trick  is to ask for chopped into texture – all over. The layers are taken higher than the longer bob of Spring which means the hair bounces up easily, needs less styling time and looks amazing simply spritzed with a salt spray.  Use a serum on the ends for a glossy look or a matte paste for bad girl bedhead= simple and stunning!
