This week's episode of Makeup Wars pits blogger against blogger as we define our favorite spring trend for 2013. Forget picking a runway trend. That stuff is hardly ever wearable. I get my trends from a more reliable place: television. Or when I really need some inspiration, I'll talk to pros on the other side of the pond.
Recently, I spent quite a bit of time being interviewed by a French company who is researching hair and hair trends. You may have noticed I'm a bit obsessed with my hair lately. Bangs, no bangs, silky smooth waves, braids, buns - you name it, I'm loving it.
Being interviewed by Perspectives Lab has made me think more about my hair and how I wear it. It's inspired me to stretch a little out of my comfort zone and let my creativity flow. This could relate to placement of braids, combining of different types of braids or even just embracing the reverse ponytail. Why do I always forget how much I love a reverse pony?
What I am really loving is the idea of the top knot, or bun, re-invented. I had (honestly) been playing with it the weekend before Shoshanna (on HBO's GirlsGirls) ever walked into Marnie's boyfriend's office party. While I'm not a fan of it on her, girls with a little more meat on their face can pull it off. It balances your look, drawing the eye upward, like a fascinator.
I saw it as silly at first, avant-garde next and then just as reinvented. Then I tried it on myself and I kind of really liked it. At first, I got a few looks from my co-workers but I bet in a day or two, I'll see more forward-placed buns!
