SS17 Trends to Try Now

Looking for new ways to switch up your look for the season? Our Phresh team gives you four simple trends you can try right now, and how to achieve them.

  1. The Deep Side Part: This look adds a bit of drama and glamour to your everyday style. We’re seeing it from the runway, to the red carpet, to the street on models-off-duty. Start with damp hair and a volumizing product like Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, and work it through the roots. For a tousled look, use Oribe Surfcomber mousse on the mid-lengths to ends. Blow dry starting at the roots and working hair back and forth on the round of the head. Let the rest air dry or diffuse. Make your deep part with your fingers or a comb, then add a little Oribe Superfine Hairspray to hold it in place. For a sleeker look, use Oribe Imperial Blowout Cream for softness, shine, and a blowout that lasts. Run it through the mid-lengths to ends and blowdry with a roundbrush. Follow the same finishing steps, but add a little Oribe Gold Lust to the ends.
  2. Mini Braids: This look is casual, playful, easy chic. Start by adding R+Co Aircraft Pomade Mousse to strands to add texture and give a little bit of grip. Now pull a few strands out around the face, about an inch worth. Next add one or more tiny braids on each side, starting at the part line.  You can add more braids sporadically, just keep them random. The key to trends like this is to NOT make it perfect. Finish with some spritzes of R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray for more beachy texture.
  3. The Matte Statement Lip: When doing a statement lip, you want to keep the rest of your makeup simple. Go for glowing clean skin, and minimal eye makeup. As far as the lip, a bright pink, red or coral are always fabulous go-to colors. Our favorites? Jane Iredale Matte Lip Crayons in Charming, Hot, and Saucy. The creamy formula keeps lips moisturized and stays in place for color that lasts.
  4.  Ultra Glowing Skin: This look catches the light at every angle and gives a healthy glow. Dust the skin with a light layer of Jane Iredale So-Bronze 1 for sunkissed perfection, then use it to contour under the cheekbones. Next, use Jane Iredale Complete In Touch Highlighter cream on the high points of the face: top of the cheekbones, nose, brow bones. Finish with a natural pink lip like Jane Iredale Just Kissed in Forever Pink. It’s a lip stain that gives long-lasting custom color, and can also be used on the cheeks!
