Fifteen years ago, it was "The Rachel." Twenty years before that, it was "The Farrah." And those are only two examples of iconic hairstyles that have graced thousands of heads over the last hundred years. But can there be another? With today's trend toward individualism, colorists, stylists and Professionals say it isn't likely.
They say No More “Rachels” “In the past, you could always go, ‘that’s the trend.’ Or you go, ‘no, it’s the wrong color.’ Now today, the trends are always customizable. You’ll never see them in their purity. Kids don’t want their MySpace pages to look the same, they don’t want their cars to look the same, they don’t want their phones to look the same. So why do we think they’re all going to walk in with a picture of Rachel’s haircut? It’s never going to happen again, because culturally they never participated in it. We did. So that’s the thing that’s really cool about right now.” ~ Modern Salon
Finally, spring is here! As the runways of New York, Paris, and Milan fill with the latest fashions, Redken announces their top trends as observed by Guido, their Creative Consultant.
According to Guido, this season's hair is all about "looking at things with new eyes, taking elements from all genres and eras, creating new textures, and drawing on urban elements of romanticism."
Guido identified four strong trends from Fashion Week 2010: Urban Romance, Past Perfect, Slick Move, and Extreme Measures. Visit the links below to view photos and detailed instructions on how to re-create popular runway looks:

As said in magazine article: We fantasize about haivng the agility of a Cirque de Soleil gymnast--not in the bedroom, but in the bathroom with the blow-dryer. Fortunately, stylists say that it doesn't take contortions to look smooth. "You just can't cut corners," Guido says. With the right tools, styling products, and the technique that follows, your hair will look as if you came straight from the salon.
Shampoo and condition by hair type and texture. For oily or fine hair, condition only the ends. Squeeze out excess moisture with a towel. Spritz the roots of fine hair with a volumizer; for curly hair rub on a blob of styling balm; and on thick, frizzy hair apply a silicone serum. Smooth with a wide-tooth comb.
Blast naturally straight hair for only two or three minutes on low speed/high heat to remove 95 percent of the moisture; keep wavy, curly, and damaged hair wet. Clip one four-inch-square section at the top of the head at the crown and if you have very thick hair, create a second tier with a clip just below this one.
The first rule for slimming down a fuller face is to style the hair away from the face. This will open up your face, cheekbones and eyes, and will expose the jawline instead of hiding it (as hair hanging down at the sides might do). For example, if you have bangs, break them up in pieces or strands rather than wearing them straight across.
When it comes to length, I generally prefer styles that go to the collarbone or just below the shoulders, which will give the hair body and movement, and will also make it easy to keep your hair off of your face. Generally very long hair on women with full faces isn't the style to go with because the longer your hair is, the more it will fall flat on the sides of your head and the fuller your face will appear. I also recommend staying away from very short cuts. You can cut the hair shorter on the top and around the face, but be sure to keep some length in the back so that it balances out the face and adds softness.
