Hello Eighty’s, Welcome to 2016

Past decades always seem to pop back to say hello every few years. This winter, we are excited to find that the fashion industry has dabbled back to the era of the 80’s. Welcome back retro and vintage styles!

The eighties featured big hair with loads of volume, however it’s the eighties inspired ‘on the move’ look that will feature this winter. This means hair that has a life and plans of its own. So girls that have natural curls, get excited because this is your year to flaunt those locks.

Bombshell Waves

Bombshell Waves

Curly hair works for all lengths, colours and thickness, by adding volume, and texture. Curls will never go out of fashion, as they compliment all ages, skin colours, features and are very flattering. Curls or the ‘bombshell waves’ can be adapted to the wearer to express the day’s mood and great for expressing personality. The trend has endless possibilities from the beachy boho look to the 2016 red carpet classic look. Spotted on the red carpet this year, was Blake Lively, with beautiful bombshell waves in a 80’s vintage style. There are many ways to achieve lushes locks, including your curling irons, or overnight rollers. Try out Osmo Curl Fluid or Osmo Curl Spray – Get creative and discover your curl.


Natural Texture

Natural Texture

Over recent years it has been rare to see a celeb rocking her natural colour, but now natural texture are a fashion sensation! Natural hair texture is a great trend that was expressed at the Autumn Winter 2016 Fashion Week. Celebrating our natural hair recognises that we are all unique. This is a concept of singular beauty, and the diversity between us.  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley confidently rocks her natural texture, with some free flowing curls nicely highlighting her cheek bones. Expect to see natural reds, brunettes and blondes this winter – good bye to peroxide blonde, electric red and black browns. Give Osmo Fibre Paste a try, it is a fibre based gum texturizer that delivers volume and control with a polished shine.


Side Parts

Side Parts

Side parts are a sneaky fashion trick to instantly give your look a hint of sophisticated glamour.  While side parts may be a simple hair style, they are also elegantly striking.  The asymmetric look strikes the mind as unusual. Side parts suit everyone, and are great as they can be teamed with any other hair style, such as pony tails, plaits, half-ups, and so on. Try out OSMO Blinding Shine Illuminating Finisher an ultimate high gloss shine spray. Perfect for finishing any style.

Emma Watson is a prime example of the side part mixed with a half-up look. She has absolutely nailed it; elegant, sophisticated and glamourous. Who would have thought, that the side part would make this kind of come back in 2016?



Vintage Hair

Vintage hair styles deserve their own special mention as we embrace them in 2016! The continued enthusiasm for vintage hair styles is huge. Retro inspired vintage – doesn’t that sounds flash! We have been seeing a number of traditional retro vintage with modern twists. Try OSMO Hairspray to keep your vintage look in place.

Zendaya was spotted rocking a vintage inspired do at the Kids Choice Awards. Her chosen style for the Awards was distinctly vintage, and sets images of pin curls and coiffures from back to the 20’s era
