GALLERY >> Hottest hair trends

In [a href="/LatestIssue/archive/2012/07/17/in-this-weeks-issue--katie-holmes-new-divorce-hell--harry-styles-chat-up-lines-p.htm">this week’s issue of Grazia[/a], we devoted five glorious pages to the hottest new hairstyles, cuts, dos and hues fresh from the A/W catwalks. We’ve said goodbye to summer’s wet look, farewell to platinum blonde and au revoir to tumbling waves and instead embraced a fresh new set of hair rules. You’ll have to read the issue to get all ten of our AW hair must dos but as a special Tuesday treat we’ve worked a few of our favourite looks just for you…

The Mini Bun


Rose is working the Mini Bun; spotted at Stella McCartney (Where models rocked it with bright blue mascara FYI ).  This new take on the ballet bun/top knot is chic, easy to wear and is all about an extra small ‘bun’ placed strategically 5cms up from the centre of the back of your head.  Ideal for mid-length locks or those with longer but fine hair. A big fat bun is soooo not the look we’re going for here…

Join the Band


Angelica is experimenting with one of autumn/winter's most frivolous hair trends – the hair band. Suitable for any length or type of hair the only rule when working one is to wear it as close to your hairline as possible and build a little volume behind the band.  Sonia Rykiel and Moschino Cheap & Chic should be your catwalk inspirations.

Get a Free Facelift


Liz is wearing the ‘Free Face lift’ -  a tight, top of the head ponytail designed to peel open your face (!) and reveal those hidden cheekbones. Yes your scalp might suffer a little but oh what we wouldn’t do for chiselled cheeks and a younger, fresher looking face. Models at Paul Smith were overheard complaining of ‘scalp ache!’ Pah to them, no pain no gain!

Try The Deep Side Part

Chiara has already adopted a severe, low side parting in the style of Victoria Beckham’s model army. Worn low and with attitude the side parting helps to shape the face and give fine hair a thicker, fuller appearance. Works for everybody.

Fringes Go Florence


Alice is channelling the ever bohemian songstress Florence Welch whose full, floppy fringe is having a huge catwalk moment this season. Fringe phobic? A longer fringe has the weight required  to hang effortlessly (No styling required) and is perfect for thicker hair types. No excuses ladies!
