Shopping for new trends is always exciting! I really couldn’t wait to see what designers have up their sleeves. I found color blocking and geometric patterns still very popular trend even for the fall 2012. What really caught my attention was that the new trend innovates the bouffant hairstyles. I just could not believe that the bouffant hairstyles was back. It is one of my favorite hair styles because it is very retro and looks glamorous all at the same time. This works great for a special event, wedding or even to dress up an outfit.
Bouffants are mostly used on weddings because of it’s elegance and if you add hair jewelry, you can look fabolous for your special day. The best part is that it also adds height to slim your face and adding curls to the bouffant can give it a modern edge. When attempting to do a bouffant, don’t forget to remember the shape of your face so that you can decide the height of the hair style. You don’t want it to be too overwhelming. It can be styled in many different ways from a pony tail to a half-up hair style. There are some girls who just have a gift or should I say that they can be very artistic with their hair. I think that art comes in many forms and making art out of your hair can be such a gift to share with others.
Celebrities are using the bouffant hairstyles such as Kim Kardashian, Emma Stone, Adele are just a few of the celebrities that have used bouffant that made them look absolutely flawless. Celebrities use it especially at a red carpet event but I honestly think that out of all the celebrities that Snooki really put this hairstyle back on the radar. Although, she did not put it on the best light but still it made people get a second glance at her hair.
Now you will find this look on the runway along with the rest of the trends happening for the fall. If you wish to learn how to do a bouffant, below are a few tips and a tutorial video as well.
