With each new season come new in-vogue hairstyles. The fall/winter season announces a major comeback for the bob, which is already turning heads on runways and red carpets everywhere. Buns, which were sophisticated and elaborate last season, will remain stylish, but in more minimalist versions, just like tie-dye hair color, which has become more natural for the fall.
A timeless staple of runway style, buns can take many forms. This season, they are simple, unfussy or even slightly messy. The Viktor & Rolf and Rad Hourani haute couture collections, as well as the Christian Dior ready-to-wear collection, all included quick and easy buns in their Fall/Winter 2013 runway shows for a very natural effect. This uncomplicated hairstyle matches the season's makeup looks, also stripped down and simple.
Bobs, the season's trendiest look
Angled, short, structured or natural: the bob is huge this season in all of its forms, offering a style that is at once modern and retro, chic and uncomplicated. The trend has been amplified by a number of celebrities, including Rita Ora and Beyoncé, who have transformed their look with the season's hottest haircut. For the fall/winter season, French hair salon chain Camille Albane is offering its "Cheeky Bob," a structured cut, parted down the middle for an uncomplicated yet glamorous style.
Natural tie-dyed color
Lothmann, another French hair salon chain, is highlighting natural ombré hair coloring this season. The look offers a very subtle two-tone, sun-kissed look and is a perfect way to prolong the summer. Thierry Lothmann, the brand's director, explains, "The look is based on progressive layering of color from the middle to the ends of the hair without a clear and sudden separation -- you know, that horrible line that you sometimes see appearing to cut the hair in two."
