The trends we see on catwalks promise quite a few new hair styles. Whether you roll your hair up, tease or pin it, long-haired women will have an exciting time this summer styling their hair. We have selected the five most beautiful updos and will show you step by step how to create and wear those hair styles at home

  • Is your hair longer than shoulder-length? If so, your motto for the coming summer is ‘Long and Long on Creativity!’ From this day forward there are no more excuses for boring lacklustre hair styles. The designers have shown us the way.

    For the spring/summer season of 2011 their models show plenty of new updo hair styles on international catwalks. Watch and admire the multitude of braided, turned, knotted and teased masterworks. Especially the classical chignon style has caught everyone’s fancy. You can see all kinds of chignons. The Albino line in Milano celebrates the high bun, while Nina Ricci prefers the plain chignons. Gucci presents the diamond knurled chignon and Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang create buns or chignons with a lot of volume. You can certainly find every style of chignon.

    There are also complicated chignons like the wide weaves presented by Alexander McQueen as well as the casual ‘undone‘ look featured by Proenza Schouler or Phillip Lim. The choices of styling are as varied as the hair styles, some are created sleek with plenty of gel, some are done in a classical elegant mood with clear lines while other styles appear coltish and playful, casual or glamorous.
