Autumn/winter hair trends

August 7, 2013

While we hate to be the bearer of bad tidings here at Shumaila’s autumn is on its way (unless we have a bit of a late summer which won’t be bad) – however, it’s not all doom and gloom because a new season means new fashion looks. With the glossy magazine’s all important September issues hitting the shelves (the one’s that showcase the key fashion trends for autumn/winter) it’s time to start revamping your look. Now here at Shumaila’s we love fashion but for us it’s all about the beauty trends and we’ve already given you the lowdown on the top hair colour trends for a/w 2013-14 so what about the key hair styles as you will need a fab new cut with that colour won’t you? Here’s our lowdown of the top a/w 13-14 hair trends.




Short and oh so sweet

I know we have spoken about short hair being the new in style for a while now but it’s not set to go anywhere when it comes to the fashion radar. Ever since Anne Hathaway chopped off her flowing locks for Les Miserables there has been a wave of celebs following suit. Jessie J even shaved her hair off and now is sporting a very fierce yet stylish buzz cut, while the owner of the noughties hair cut (the Rachel don’t you know!) Jennifer Aniston has been seen with a bob while on set in recent weeks.


On the catwalks Marc Jacobs had models sporting punky Joan Jett style hair which fitted in perfectly with the rebellious vibe that swept the main fashion weeks so if you want to experiment with shorter hair now is the time to do it. However, if you are going to go short make sure your hair is in the best possible condition and book in for regular trims as you won’t be able to just tie it back so you need to make sure it looks good.



Nope you’ve not jumped into the TARDIS and gone back to the 80s crimping really is back in vogue. Maybe one for the more adventurous of you but crimping is back and while it wasn’t the biggest trend of the season it was seen on enough runways to make an impact – with Sister by Sibling, Derek Lam, Zac Posen, Rick Owens and Carven all showcasing the somewhat retro trend. One easy way of getting the look (because let’s face it those crimping irons have probably seen better days) is to tightly plait wet hair and leave it to dry to get that crimped imprint.

Be a Hitchcock heroine

The a/w 2103-14 runways were full of ladylike outfits and they had hairstyles to match. From sixties-esque beehives at Dolce &Gabbana to the Hitchcock style hair seen at Temperley this autumn/winter it is all about great ladylike updos which will be perfect as we move into party season.
