Trends: Crimping is Back!
Steven Rowbottom, co-director of Westrow salons, UK, reveals that crimping is a key trend for the upcoming autumn-winter season. However it’s not the same way that many hairstylists remember it, but rather done for a glamorous effect. The Halpern A/W18 show is an example. Here, models wore hair pulled tightly back into a sleek power pony with the entire length of the ponytail crimped and brushed out for serious body, texture and volume. To get the look, pull hair back into a sleek pony, using hairspray to keep flyaways at bay. Then, either plait the ponytail into multiple tiny braids, run hair straighteners over them, and then undo the plaits, or alternatively, use a pair of crimpers.
