Although Dutch-born newcomer Damaris Goddrie was spotted on the runway for several different fashion houses during Spring 2016 Fashion Week, her signature short, tousled curls remained the same. The wild, feminine hairstyle is just gorgeous, creating an air of wonder and edginess that leaves you uncertain on whether she wants to cuddle or start a fight.
This innate opposition is what makes this hairstyle a hit, as the large curls lend her a softness that is complicated by the length of the cut, which imparts on her a certain toughness as it hits just below her ears, drawing attention to her lovely jawline.
This look can be recreated with large bantu knots, which after setting and unraveling, are then mussed up to create this messy, feminine look.
Karly Loyce, one of the new faces of French fashion label Cèline, sports a beautiful, classic blow out that was featured on the runways for fashion houses like Alberta Ferretti, Stella McCartney, and Max Mara.
This breathtaking hairstyle has the versatility to impart elegance or ferocity, depending on how it is dressed.
When juxtaposed against soft flowing layers, in dresses like the Alberta Ferretti gown pictured above, the hairstyle sits atop her head like a crown above her beautiful features, and is the epitome of strength and grace.
When paired with more structured lines and sharp tailoring, as in the metallic green silk blazer dress she wore for Fausto Puglisi, her blow out delivers a shocking punch that gives her an air of danger and chicness.
This look is easily recreated when hair is wet, and can also be done safely. Use a pick to comb out the hair while using a blow dryer* on a cool setting until the hair is about 70-80% dry. At this point, change the setting on the blow dryer* to medium heat and use a round brush to recreate the softly curled edges of her afro until hair is completely dry.
In conclusion we have to mention that one of the things we love the most about the direction of natural hair this year is how free it is. No harsh or laid styles, mostly carefree locks that show off natural hair in its most natural state. We love that beauty is being redefined! What do you think about natural hair on the runway, is it a sign of even more changes to come?
