Volume Control: Previewing The Fall Hair Trend in Pictures
It’s no secret that bigger is better when it comes to fall hair. The collective message that stylists like Guido Palau at Prada, Eugene Souleiman at Rochas, and Odile Gilbert at Lagerfeld sent down the runways was volume—a memo that was not lost on the beauty and fashion set, as evidenced by the hoards of glossies that have devoted many a page of late to hulking masses of hair. Christy Turlington set things off with a Giles-esque set in this month’s issue of Vogue Italia, which was promptly followed by Laetitia Casta’s tribute to Amy Winehouse’s famous half-up, half-down bouffant on the cover of next month’s Russian Vogue. Our favorite incarnation yet comes from the pages of the August issue of Vogue U.S., which features a sixties-styled Karlie Kloss sporting a spot-on replica of the sexed-up, teased-out tresses from Rochas, where Michelangelo Antonioni’s Mod masterpiece Blow-up, provided the inspiration. All three are convincing arguments for investing in some high-quality mousse and a strong hair spray—and offer just a small taste of what is likely to come from those much anticipated September books. Ready your teasing comb.
