Straight from the Hairstyling Catwalk: Spring Hair Styles from Intercoiffure

As a long-time member of Intercoiffure, I have the privilege of working with some of the most talented and creative people in the beauty industry.  Next month, my staff and I will be attending the annual Intercoiffure Spring Atelier at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, where we will be the first to see the hair and make-up styles for Fall/Winter 2011/2012. 

In the meantime, I am pleased to share with you the Spring/Summer 2011 trends release from my friends and colleagues at Intercoiffure America/Canada. 

Titled Celebrating the Romance of Luxury, Intercoiffure’s new collection is called “Lady of the Manor,” a fantasy rendering of what it would be like to dress the hair of a lovely aristocrat, to have the freedom to set off  my own hair designs with the height of couture, and to see my creations moving gracefully among the guests at a candle-lit dinner party – which, with so many clients from Palm Beach, is not unknown to us at D Laudati.  

The hairstyles in photos accompanying this blog were created by Vivienne Mackinder, who made history last year when she was appointed the first female Fashion Director of Intercoiffure America/Canada. 

“The Lady of the Manor” features seven unique designs, ranging from various hairdressing techniques to an abstract razor cut and a classic bob with an unexpected twist. 

“This is a whimsical, elegant riff on the romance of luxury, celebrating the art of hair design, creating looks that are rich and luxurious,” Ms. Mackinder notes. “I want these images to capture your imagination, to reflect upon and escape the madness of today’s life.”

While these styles may seem extreme to you, hair styling is much like couture fashion design – what’s seen at the shows is often outrageous and daring, but is then interpreted through the lens of each individual stylist/designer to appeal to the consumer/client. 

Enjoy the fantasy!
