With the last few years being dominated by balayage and undone waves, this winter will see straight hair make a comeback for mid-long hair lengths. Sleek hair is anything but dull just wind your mind back to 90s straight hair looks worn by the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Alyssa Milano and of course Alicia Silverstone! 

To perfect Olivia Palermo’s elegant look, it’s all about achieving that shiny finish:

  1. Blow dry your hair to silky perfection using VS Sassoon Digital Sensor Dryer with an ultra-fast 208 km/h motor for an optimised airflow to perfection 
  2. Run a VS Sassoon Diamond Shine Straightener through for extra sleekness.  


Luxe Messy Bun

When royalty is breaking rules to wear a messy bun, it must be trending! Meghan Markle caused waves when she wore a low messy bun to a public outing. Messy top knots were also made luxurious on the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2018 catwalk with models walking the runway with hair slicked back and a teased bun classily adorned with Chanel accessories. 

This look is perfect for days when it’s too cold to deal with wet hair as its best achieved with unwashed hair. Bella Hadid stylishly paired her messy bun with hoops for extra glam. 

To achieve the luxe look:

  1. Use a comb to sleek hair back to the crown 
  2. Slightly tease hair gathered in a pony. 
  3. Twist and tie hair elastic, the secret here is too not overthink how the bun is looking just tie haphazardly.  
  4. Once tied, you the end of a teasing comb to pull out the bun for more volume.
  5. Spray any flyaways and voila! 


Brave the cold with braid hairstyles

Whoever said braids were reserved for kids and young teens certainly didn’t know what they were talking about, and the iconic Madonna just proves that you can wear braids and still look like a true queen. 

Braids can be an easy hairstyle to create at home so whether you’re after a loose fishtail braid, or the double Dutch braid like Madonna wore at the 2018 Met Gala, this is one hair trend you will want to get on board. Perfect for rainy days, braids help control the frizz and paired with a beanie make for a cute style. 

To achieve the perfect braid, it’s all about starting with tangle-free, smooth hair. The VS Sassoon Diamond Luxe Straightening Brush will help you get the job done as it straightens and smooths your hair as you brush.

Whether you’re off to brunch with the girls or heading to a work meeting, adding an accessory to your hair look is the ultimate go to trick this winter. 90s hair accessories are back in a big way taking over catwalks, red carpets and street style blogs. Both Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin have been doing their best to make the scrunchie cool again pairing them with everything from blazers, to woolly jumpers and even sports jackets. 

To create the perfect pony first straighten with the VS Sassoon 3Q Straightener. The Quartz-Ceramic plates coupled with the superior ionic system will leave your hair with beautiful shine, frizz-free and ultra-smooth. Then use a brush to pull back your hair to the crown. Lastly add a scrunchie and straighten your ponytail into place.

This winter expect to be warmed up by fiery copper hues. From rich auburn, deep ginger and soft strawberry blondes, there are many tones to choose from! Copper hues look best with paler skin making them the perfect bold winter statement. Zendaya is making a bold statement at the 2018 Met Gala awards with her beautiful striking copper locks.


Farewell summer, hello winter with VS Sassoon

As we farewell summer, we can also say au revoir to the trends that have gone from hot to cold! Say goodbye to balayage, undone long hair, platinum blondes and French girl fringes. Will they return next summer perhaps but just like swimwear it’s time they’re packed up for another day.
