Autumn/WInter Hair Trends 2012

Here's a quick review of 2012 A/W hair trends...I love the femininity of them all!

WINDSWEPT - Dishevelled and matte in texture, windswept hair looks were in abundance at Rodarte, Vera Wang, John Galliano and Gianfranco Ferré, whilst at Marc Jacobs and Marios Schwab strands of the models' hair fell loosely in their faces as if blown by a gust of wind.
 RETRO - Vintage-looking twisted and pinned styles at Donna Karan and Valentino, Sixties bouffants at DSquared2 and Carolina Herrera and prim flicked bobs at Peter Jensen - retro hairstyles found their way onto catwalks in all four fashion capitals.
 PONYTAILS - They aren't exactly a new trend, we know, but ponytails were all over the catwalks once more for this season - sleek and worn lower than last autumn/winter's dominatrix styles please. Seen at Christian Dior, Chanel, Jonathan Saunders and Anna Sui.
 PLAITS, BRAIDS AND TWISTS - Romantic plaited looks were on show at Emilio Pucci and Mulberry, whilst a more urban take on the trend was seen at Fendi and Mark Fast, where plaits trailed over the models' shoulders. At Marc Jacobs the buns were plaited, whilst at Gucci and Valentino hair was twisted and pinned for a Pre-Raphaelite charm.
BALLERINA BUNS - Simple, neat and pretty, buns were seen at Stella McCartney, Diane von Furstenberg and Louis Vuitton, whilst at Marc Jacobs and Rick Owens they were plaited and twisted.

A Change of Brand (grab a bargain!)

I have listed these KaesoManicure Products on ebay, if you are interested you can bid on them here. 

Kaeso is a really lovely, delicious smelling brand of Salon/Spa quality products. However I have decided to change to SpaRitual to give my clients the best possible service and skincare.

SpaRitual is a luxury, vegan, eco-conscious spa brand that is organic and free from parabens, synthetic dyes, preservatives and petrochemicals. They contain organic, rare plant essences and are used all over the world throughout the finest spas and by celebrities alike.
As a SpaRitualist mobile nail technician, I have been fully trained & qualified and I want to offer the very best experience for my clients. Once you have had a SpaRitual Manicure you will find it very hard to go back to using any other brand. 
My Luxury Manicure involves a relaxing hand soak, hand and arm massage & gorgeous scrub masque with mitts. Indulgent & restorative.
