Statement make-up and big, sexy hair has never been so important. This year saw the comeback of the oversized tee, worn with skinny jeans, denim shorts or leggings this casual look requires bold statements in the make-up and hair department to transform the baggy look into a chic, stunning ensemble.
HQhair’s resident make-up expert, Jasmine says “When you’re wearing a plain outfit it is so much easier to experiment with bold make-up styles. Red lips look great with a plain outfit, I strongly recommend NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, it is a bit like a mix between a pencil and a lipstick and you’ll find that it lasts all day! Why not try it in ‘red square’ or ‘cruella’.
Natalie Wansbrough-Jones, Elle’s Fashion Director is pushing denim as the key autumn ‘must-have’, “classic, versatile and inexpensive. Denim is every girl’s great wardrobe secret”. Whether you prefer to don shorts, jeans or shirts it looks like denim is making a big comeback, not that it really went away. “Hair can really make or break a simple outfit”, says Jayne, HQhair’s resident hair expert, “when your clothes are casual there is a lot more emphasis on bold hair styles. Blonde hair looks great with blue denim, so why not enhance your golden locks further with Redken Blonde Glam Shampoo? The grapefruit extract helps to bring out bold blonde tones while the Crystal Mica adds shine!” Check out how our cover girl is donning the look, baggy black top, vintage jeans and a gorgeous pile of blonde hair tied up on her head. “This look will require a lot of hair spray” Jayne says “I recommend Hard Head Hairspray by Bed Head.”
So why not shake-up your hair and make-up with big bold statements, and just think with all the money you have saved from wearing your dad’s baggy t-shirts and last year’s denim you will have tonnes to spend on the best new hair and beauty products!
