The Film Noir Look for Fall 2013

Film Noir
One of the main hair trend themes for the fall 2013 season is the ‘new’ Film Noir. It’s about cinematic styles defined by a fashionable dark side and high-shine drama. Evolving from fall 2012′s first introduction of the neo-Gothic fashion trend, the concept of Film Noir brings a womanly kind of beauty under the spotlight, having the hairstyles look as close as being caught in a certain moment in time.

Either edgy, utterly seductive, sultry or plain luxurious, the Film Noir influence spanning over the autumn / winter 2013 hair trends reads pure sophistication.

Hollywood’s classical film noir period extends over the early 1940s to the late 1950s, so there’s a large amount of vintage sway for the modern and powerful woman of fall 2013!

We also suggest just a few pieces of pastel hair colors, because during the summer hair fades faster and is exposed to many elements that could turn an all over pastel hair color to a disastrous ‘chlorine-green’ color.

If you have curly tresses, begin by smoothing them with a Goldwell product such as Goldwell Curl Love or Lagoom Jam and use a long-barrel curling iron; for straight locks use Goldwell Lagoom Jam to add waves. Next, comb hair into a deep side part and separate it into three sections.

Braid them loosely, weaving in strands from the side farthest from your face; secure the end with an elastic. Lightly run a brush against the plait to create flyaway strands and, using a tail comb, gently pull at a few loops to break it up. Finish with a light shine spray.
