Trends always serve as a guide for hairstylist to create new styles and this year two of the biggest hair trends are the low ponytail and the wet look. Simple yet chic, these hairstyles has always been a favorite of women all over the world. Sophie Roberts of ghd made use of these 2013 hairstyle trends and gave them yet another new twist for the Alice McCall show at Australian Fashion Week (MBFWA): what resulted was a messy, knotted low ponytail.
For her latest spring / summer collection, Alice McCall took us on an underwater journey. Drawing inspiration from German botanist illustrator Ernst Haekel and the intricate detail of Art Nouveau jewellery, the collection featured beautiful cut-out lace pieces, Japanese organza and custom-prints. Sophie Roberts took inspiration from the collection itself and describes the knotted low ponytail as how a girl would look after she has gone swimming in the ocean. Lucky for us, we don’t have to head to the beach to get this look: we’ve got the how to right after the break.
