Fall 2019 is all about YOU! Last year’s looks were definitely not for the fashion faint-hearted – experimenting with tonal colors, trying out baby bangs and, if you were really cutting edge, sporting a buzz cut. This season, individualism rocks, whether you favor a 70’s inspired blunt bob, or want to embrace the fashion-forward trend towards age-inclusivity, rocking those natural (or maybe not!) silver-gray strands. Be prepared to fall back in love with your hair this season.
N4’s hairstyle to try right now
We asked our expert team back at the N4 Style Bureau what the biggest hair trends were for the remainder of 2019. Here are their jet-set global runway predictions.
Blunt is Best
Inspired by the likes of Karlie Kloss and Kendall Jenner, get ready to channel the 1970’s with a standout shorter length, blunt bob. This look is all about precision, plus it can seriously thicken up thinly textured hair. When angled correctly, it’s nothing short of a miracle maker. Creating covetable cheekbones and defining facial structure. A blunt bob can be as life-changing as having a mini facelift! It’s such a super versatile look to style. With Number 4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray, you can achieve daylong hold without stiffness, for workable and pliable texture and shine.
Finally, age inclusivity has hit the hair care industry! Pinterest searches for #goinggray have increased by 879% this year. Surely that’s not because your Mom has finally discovered social media? The trick is to make it look as natural as possible, working with your colorist to enhance any existing gray that’s already started to make an appearance. Whether you choose to go that fashion-forward silver gray color or embrace your natural gray tones, keep the hairline light, and this will deceive the eye and give an overall impression of being more gray than you are.
Keep it Super Straight
Poker straight hair was a 90’s trend and it’s back with a vengeance for 2019. If you’re not naturally blessed with straight hair, you’re going to need to dial up the heat on your styling tool. Use those irons carefully alongside a cocktail of Number 4’s Thermal Styling Spray which acts as the perfect air-weight barrier, delivering super-hero style heat protection. Complete the look with lashings of N4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray for touchable memory hold and heat protection.
Accessorizing the Adult Way
Summer tends to be the season we experiment more; wearing our hair up and styling with accessories and embellishments. From humble hair clips to grown-up girlie ribbons and bows, accessories have been stealing the limelight lately. This trend looks set to take a more sophisticated and elegant turn this Fall as we dial up the glamour with diamanté clips.
Instagram spawned the trend for #glasshair, and 2019 is still about impossibly smooth and super shiny hair. The kind that’s so sleek and clean, you can virtually see your own reflection in it. This is a look that goes particularly well with two of our other fall hair trend predictions; the blunt bob and poker-straight hair.
You’re going to need a big round brush to help smooth out those tresses and a few drops of Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil to achieve that glass-like finish. Again, the piece de resistance comes courtesy of Number 4 Non Aerosol Hair Spray, the fairytale wet or dry styler for sleek, mirror-like hair.
It’s a case of “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”
Well, of course, you are my dah-ling!
