Hair Expo 2012 – Opening Gala
Flame red wigs at Romance Was Born Spring Summer 2012
Fashion and hair have a symbiotic relationship. In fact, the way a person wears their hair is inseparable from their personal style. That’s why it was so great to attend the Hair Expo 2012 so soon after Australian fashion week – to find out about the latest trends and styles in hair. Not only it was entertaining in an artistic sense with some great performances, runway shows and music but I got some great tips on styling options, hair care and new styling products. I’ll share this new knowledge with you, darlings, in my upcoming beauty posts but for now I’d like to show some of the most interesting moments from the sensory overload that was the Saturday night Opening Gala.

Leaving aside the giant dolls, the three main hair trends for 2012 – 2013:
- super sleek structured hair either with a short bang or partly gathered in a bun at the back
- big hair, i.e. soft brushed through in voluminous waves
- colored hair – including wigs!
