The Fluid Wave Autumn/Winter 2016
Dancers were the inspiration behind the BCBG Max Azria show at New York Fashion Week AW16, so it makes sense that TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador Orlando Pita gave models hair with beautifully subtle movement. With locks that cascaded gently from imperfect partings, a hairstyle star was born: the Fluid Wave.
TRESemmé stylists perfectly choreographed hair to look charmingly haphazard, keeping it shiny and natural, with slight volume at the roots and tumbling texture throughout. And this windswept look worked wonderfully with the cosy autumn feel of this show: its autumnal colour scheme, long coats, woolly knits and furry fabrics.
While the dance inspiration lent sparkle, stripes and a sportswear vibe to the collection, the hairstyle said ‘off-duty dancer who’s just undone her bun’ – a relaxed, casual look for downtime.
On the street, one of our favourite fashion bloggers, Arielle Charnas of Something Navy, showed how this style can work with a more dressed-up look. The gentle waves and centre part echoed the BCBG runway, but her chic monochrome coat, over-the-knee boots and snowball pom pom charm swinging from a classic handbag took this on-trend do in a completely different direction.
However you want to wear it, the Fluid Wave is an easy look to achieve yourself. We recommend the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume collection for creating the soft, natural texture needed. You’ll also need a blow-dryer, a soft, bristle brush and a one-inch curling iron.
