At Barcelona Hair Academy, as hairdressing course experts, we teach our students how to recreate the latest hairstyles and trends
90s fashion – The return of mom jeans
They used to be extremely uncool, and only worn by soccer moms but now they are super hip and all the cool kids are wearing them. These jeans are slightly fitted at the top with a baggy tapered leg and a high waist, and very comfortable! The best hairstyle to go with this fashion is big and casually swept to the side– think 90s supermodels Cindy Crawford or Linda Evangelista. Soft and wavy and very feminine, but less styled then they used to wear it. No need for hot rollers, just sleep with your hair in a braid if your hair is poker straight and you want to create some movement.
Products: Use dust waxes, like Schwartzkopf Dust It, dry shampoo, and a little serum or argan oil to control the frizz.
Top tip: Dry your hair upside down to create volume at the roots. Keep the side parting low and undefined.
Another cool hair trend is the 90s-inspired minimalist bob. Kate Bosworth, always on trend, went for this crop, combining it with a low parting and a little texture at the ends. Emma Stone wears it a little messier and with a grown out fringe, which gives the look more versatility.
The festival season is here, and its time to start thinking about getting your look together. At Barcelona Hair Academy we love scrutinizing the celeb looks and predicting new trends. At the ever fabulous Coachella festival prints were big this year, especially big bold colourful ones. Jeans shorts are still going strong, and as far as the hair goes, the looks are simple, a low messy ponytail, a headband to keep hair out of your face or a thrown on hat. If your hair is blond, you can stick some temporary pastel colour mask on your ends for a cool ombre effect.
One of Barcelona’s biggest festival, Primavera Sound is a little more indie and rocky than the californian boho styled festival, but festival goers still take inspiration from the cool Hollywood crowd. The caftan is the one must have item in your wardrobe this year, but the Barcelona way of wearing it is over cropped shorts, and teamed with brogues, Vans or trainers. Pile on the accessories, bracelets, necklaces, rings on your hands. This is not the time to be minimalist or for taking the advice of Coco Chanel, who said that one would always took one accessory off before leaving the house. This is the time to put one more on before dashing out the door, and being late to meet your mates.
We thought Kylie and Kendall Jenner looked amazing at Coachella, Kendall wearing her shorts a little longer, and Kylie with pastel green hair and a white kaftan.
