Trend: 5 Hot Hair Looks

Perth has gone from sweltering heat to winter in the blink of an eye and chances are your hair hasn't had time to catch up with the change. Choosing a new do is always a harrowing adventure (just see my earlier post about my own recent experience!) but we thought you might be inspired by the five signature looks developed by Perth's own House of Ernest.

The trends range from urban glam to vintage charm and includes shorter, solid and structured hair designs to longer, grunge inspired cuts with warmer tones. The burlesque feel of ‘50s fever’ draws comparisons to American model and actress Dita Von Teese, while the arctic white ‘80s bob’ is reminiscent of the bold hair styles sported by Lady Gaga. 

House of Ernest artistic director Nakia Stevens styled for L’Oreal at London Fashion Week and predicts the ‘country’ look will be the most popular of the season with edgy curls, a rich brown colour and a hint of light. “The colour is called ‘blondette’ – a subtle combination of blonde and brunette tones,” Nakia says.

Nakia says the reflective coppery gold tones of the ‘county’ look, combined with vanillas and warm honeys gives an illusion of a full head colour when it is actually intrinsically woven pieces of coloured hair. 

So what do you think of these five looks. Love them or hate them? Is there one you'd like to try?

  1. I'd LOVE to try the second one because I think it would be a fabulous look. The others are probably a bit high maintenance for me!
