Hair Today! Top Stylists Talk Spring


We’ve covered a lot of beauty ground in the past few weeks—showcasing our Spring Beauty Preview and the G&F Beauty Kick-off 2014. But we’ve hardly covered hair. And what better way to get the scoop of the hottest styles for the season than to spotlight four must-know stylists who are working their chairs delivering dead-on ‘do’s for Spring. With a combined 22 years of experience and multiple industry recognitions, these creative talents talk to G&F about their favorite products, how to achieve the “IT” look this season and more.

What inspired you this season?

L’wren Scott & Marc Jacobs [PICTURED] pageboy haircut; Rochas unrefined updo & Badgley Mischka’s elegant updo’ and Christian Dada for Men’s hairstyles. I loved the movies “Kill Your Darlings” and “Ginger & Rosa.” One taking place in the 1940s and the other 1960s—the hair & clothing were nothing but amazing.

Walk us through a few of these favorite trends—how do you achieve the look?

Clockwise from top left; Pageboy: Bangs are the focal point of the style. Begin to make a triangular shape starting from temple to temple meeting at a point where the head begins to round. This is an inch or two above the center of your hairline. Once you’ve sectioned it out, decide on bang shape (straight, u-shape, round). As for styling, I prefer a messy look. But sleek would look magnificent, too.

1970′s Rock & Roll: Sliced layers throughout, parted either center or slightly off. I like to run my flat over my ends in a ripple wave-like motion down the hair shaft and load on the dry shampoo the night before. Less looking in the mirror, more “who cares” attitude.

Anna Karina Fringe: Depending on where someone parts their hair, part out a triangular shape coming to a point at their part. Clip all other hair out of the way. Gather hair together and bring out at 90 degrees from the scalp. Twist once and grip. Either point cut with scissors or cut with thinning shears. Drop down and visually decide if they need more texture or should be shorter.

And on yourself? What look might you sport this Spring?

I’ve gotten pretty good about letting go of what no longer serves me, I wouldn’t be surprised if I chopped it all off. Change is good.

If you could channel one classic starlet to bring back her hair look—who would it be?

Myrna Loy, but I wouldn’t want to just channel her hair. She wasn’t afraid of being different in her time. She was breath taking, whether her hair was wild or tamed.
