Hair lust: 4 must-have fall hair styles


The look: Christian Dior, big '60s-inspired beehive hair

Ideal for: "This is a very, very hot look right now," explains Terry Ritcey, director of education for Redken. "It works best on someone with no bangs (you could do it with bangs and just brush them up and blend them in). It's great for evening, cocktail parties or going out. Your traditional longer layered looks work beautifully for this kind of look."

Products:
To get this sky-high look you're going to need some heavy duty products to keep it from falling flat. Terry suggests a volumizing spray (such as Redken's Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam) sprayed at the root or scalp area. "It creates exaggerated fullness," he explains. "Plus it protects hair from heat styling and humidity. " Some hairspray to top it off will also hold the style.

Make it everyday:
To make this look more wearable for everyday, just minimize the volume and take an inch or two off the height. Terry suggests getting the same volumized look without the drama by wearing your hair off your face and adding just a touch of volume and texture (even at the crown of a pony tail). "Just adding volume and texture to your hair will keep you trendy," he insists.

Keep it modern:
Terry says the key to this look is the mixture of different textures -- wavy, straight and curly. Sticking to one texture will look like last season.

Get the look:
Terry's steps on how to recreate this look.
* Start with damp hair and work in volumizing foam or mouse.
* Directional blow dry -- pulling it up and back away from the face and sides with a large round brush focusing on lifting the roots up and away from the head. Try flipping your head upside down while you blow dry to give extra height.
* Back comb hair away from face and up.
* Take an iron (flat and curling) and go over it in pieces to give it different textures after the shape has been built, not before. Don't curl or straighten every stand of hair, make it modern with a blend of textures that meld together.
* Finish with a strong hold hairspray.



The look: Diana Von Furstenburg, flirty '40s-inspired bouncy, girly curls

Ideal for:

"This look is best suited for wavy to curly textured hair," says Nhi Tran, assistant creative director at Vidal Sassoon Salon in Toronto. "Preferably between shoulder to upper back in length."

Products:
To get these curls to stay bouncy all day long you need a little help with some products. Nhi suggests using a curling enhancer or product, such as Oleo-curl by Kerastase, a diffuser, and some flexible hold hairspray for staying power and shine, such as, No. 7 Crystal Fixative Lacquer for Wizards (hairspray) by Davines, to achieve this look.

Make it everyday:
To make it wearable for everyday, Nhi suggests getting a long layered haircut and opting for a length between shoulders to upper back. This will help hold the curl and shape. "By having a proper haircut, hair will fall into place and the curls with bounce naturally," Nhi says.

Keep it modern:
The last thing you're going to want is to end up with curls that are too tight. "For a modern feel, the key is to keep the hair natural looking," explains Nhi. "Effortless chic is timeless." So keep those curls natural looking and slightly loose.

Get the look:
Nhi's steps on how to recreate this look.
* Towel dry cleansed and conditioned hair.
* Apply Oleo-curl to the hair. Encourage a thorough application.
* Find your natural part. Side parting works best for this look.
* Begin around the hairline. Section hair 1" - 2" across the head. Clip the rest of the hair away. Take a small section of hair approximately 1" wide and twist this section around your fingers. Continue this method throughout the entire head, until you reach the natural parting.
* With a diffuser attached to the nozzle of your blowdryer, lightly hold the diffuser against the scalp on low heat to encourage a naturally drying effect. Avoid touching the hair at this stage. Once the hair is 70% dry, lightly scrunch the hair to maximize the formation of the curls.
* Finally, spritz hairspray for the ultimate hold to the bouncy curls.

The look: Dsquared, modern, wavy long locks

Ideal for: "You need to have at least collar bone length or longer hair to look like it has this lazy wave," recommends Terry. "Anything shorter will have a pyramid type of look."

Products:
This look seems simple, but you need to start with basics. Terry suggests using a thickening lotion (such as Redken's Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder). "It gives it body and texture, fattens up the hair so it looks and feels thicker. It's the key to getting this type of wave and relaxed look," says Terry. For those who have thicker hair, use a lighter product, (such as Satin Wear 02 Ultimate Blow Dry Lotion), to give a little more control. It's best worked into damp hair to give and create more of a rough, cardboard type texture to the hair.

Make it everyday:
"This look is perfect as is for every day," explains Terry. Top it off with strong makeup Think dark rimmed eyes or a deep red pout since the strong makeup will compliment the less complicated hair.

Keep it modern:
To keep this look modern all you need to do is keep the colour updated. "Mahogany and wood-toned reds are very prevalent -- you can freshen up your look by cutting in bangs and changing the colour," Terry suggests.

Get the look:
Terry's steps on how to recreate this look.
* Blot hair excessively with towel, or paper towel to bring out the natural wave, or twist or braid hair when it's damp.
* Work in your thickening product to add to texture and keep wave in your hair.
* Blow dry using a diffuser if needed, or let your hair dry naturally to keep your own natural wave.
* Use your fingers to create pieces and texture while drying.
* Or, to add more wave or curl, use a curling iron by taking random sections with a 1 1/2 to 2-inch barrel, wrap them around to give a natural texture. (Don't do it to all of the hair, just sections to give a lazy wave).


The look: Calvin Klein, slicked back, '80s-inspired

Ideal for:
This look is ideal for sleek straight hair.

Products:
Nho suggests Lait Nutri-Sculpt by Kerastase, Megagel by Wella SP or No.5 Mat Pliable Stucco for Wizards by Davines. "These styling products will make your hair move whatever way you dictate."

Make it everyday:
"At Sassoon, our philosophy is create wash-and-wear hairstyles for everyday," Nhi says. To achieve this look, start with a precision haircut shaped to encourage hair to move away from the face, exposing the eyes and the cheekbones. An ideal length should sit at the nape of the neck.

Keep it modern:
To keep the look modern, skip the side or middle part and keep the look slicked back. Also keep the hair looking natural and try not to use products that will leave the hair looking greasy or shiny.

Get the look:
Nhi's steps on how to recreate this look.
* Apply Lait Nutri-Sculpt to freshly shampooed and conditioned hair.
* Blow-dry the hair with a Denman or a Vess Brush. Brush the hair from side to side to allow natural root lift.
* Once hair is thoroughly dried, apply an almond sized amount of Megagel or No. 5 Mat Pliable Stucco for Wizards on the palm of your hands, rub the product even on your hands.
* Then slowly run your fingers through your hair, starting at the front on the root area and encourage the hair to move away from the face. Apply more products if required.
* For a slicked back, wet look effect, apply an egg-sized amount of hair mousse, Supermousse by Wella SP, to wet hair. With a fine-tooth comb, begin to comb the hair back from the crown area. Work forward to the front hairline. Allow hair to air dry naturally.
