Ladylike hair-do’s

By  August 08, 2012

Statement updos are always a staple of fashion week, but for spring/summer 2012 they came sporting a new look. Softer, flufflier and embracing fly-away strands, a new breed of hair dos transported retro styling back from the past and into the present. And, are perfect for anyone heading off to a late summer wedding this month.

Backstage at Clements Riberio, Mulberry, Roccobarocco, The Blonds and Chloe (but to name a few), hair stylists worked away at inserting some Brigitte Bardot va-va-voom!  Tousled hair, loose luscious curls, and beehive height means that this hairstyle has become a staple statement.
