Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Hairstyle Trends

Choosing the perfect hairstyle that matches your personality, face shape and lifestyle can be a real challenge especially when you are looking for something trendy. However, the new fall/winter 2010-2011 hairstyle trends are so various and you can find one that perfectly flatters your facial traits and character. If you want to know what are the most popular hairstyle trends this season, take a look on the catwalks. Beautiful, chic and sophisticated, yet playful and girly hairstyles were brought on fashion runways especially for you.

After taking a sneak peek on the catwalks for fall/winter 2010-2011, we have discovered some of the hottest hairstyle trends of the new season. For those of you who have long tresses, you should be happy as long hair is still a very hot trend, but get ready to also add some volume into it as retro hairstyles seem to be back in a big way. Also, rock quiffs, the classic ponytail in different versions, the wet look, soft waves, or messy chignons are some of this season's hairstyle trends. Pick one and get ready to shine!

The classic, timeless ponytail is back in all its possible versions from low, on one side, and even in a different color from that of your hair. Whether you are going for a tidy and severe look as seen at Stella McCartney, with a slicked side parting, or at Jil Sander, CĂ©line and Calvin Klein, or you choose a more messy version, such as spotted at DKNY, Michael Kors, or Sportmax, ponytails will always look great. In fact, they will never end being one of the most popular hairstyles due to their low maintenance level. As we have seen, depending on where you choose to set the ponytail, there are so many different ways to create a wide range of ponytail hairstyles regardless your hair type. For a ladylike look, go for an elegant pony as seen at Louis Vuitton, or for a more girly, youthful look, try the Lacoste pony.

For fall/winter 2010-2011, you can easily bet on backcombing your hair in order to add volume even on different updos in the '60s style. You just need a fine toothed comb and some hairspray, and in just a few minutes you have renewed your look. If you have thick hair, you can add an elegant and sexy touch to your hairstyle if you backcomb it. However, even women who aren't so lucky and have a thinner hair can resort to this type of artificial help in order to look extravagant. You can even try this hairstyle on curly hair, but make sure you straighten the curls before starting the backcombing process. We have spotted the long, backcombed tresses at Rochas, Nina Ricci, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood, Chanel, or Christian Dior.

The chignon is an elegant hairstyle offering maximum comfort and sophistication whether we are talking about a more official, formal event, or a casual-chic look. There are so many different versions of this style according to hair type, hair length and personal taste. Regardless the type of chignon you are going to choose, you'll still look fabulous. However, in order to get the look right, you need medium length or long hair. For fall/winter 2010-2011, the messy bun is still a very hot trend as seen at Missoni or Dolce & Gabbana. For an adorable result, you can take a look at Yves Saint Laurent or at Prada for a '50s style bun. Also, for the most daring of you, a '50s rock bun as spotted at Fendi would be the perfect choice.

  • Braids, which were so hot during the spring/summer season, are back again for fall/winter 2010-2011. This time, you can choose the simple side braid, or the sophisticated fishtail plait as seen at Christian Dior.

  • Loose, soft waves and tousled hair are a total must-have for fall/winter 2010-2011 as spotted at Pucci, Oscar de la Renta, and Paul&Joe. Also, strong, thick bangs that emphasize the color of your eyes and facial traits are a trendy choice.

  • The wet effect is back among the hottest hairstyle trends. Draw your inspiration from Alexander Wang and Carolina Herrera for a '70s look. You can also see it at Alberta Ferretti or Dsquared2.
