Is the high-low hem inspiring high-low hairstyles?
The high-low hem has been the rage for almost a year now — at least that's when we started to see it catch fire and be everywhere, spreading from dresses to skirts and tunics and tees.
And now — hair!
For the record I've seen high-low referred to as hi-low and hi-lo and until someone puts it into a dictionary, the spelling will be capricious.
The hi-lo hem (as seen above on Salma Hayek, 46) is ideal for midlifers, and maybe women in general, because most of us are self-conscious about our backsides. From a dress and skirt point of view it's practical too, because you can show off a little more leg in the front and not worry about the back if you have to bend over.
As far as the hi-lo hairstyle though, there are a different set of pluses. Primarily, it looks fancy and casual at once. But I'm on the fence as to whether it's flattering or not.
So I asked hair expert and renowned hairdresser Angelo David of the Angelo David Salon how to achieve her look quickly and easily, and he kindly obliged.
Naomi Watts hi-lo hairstyle — a QUICK HOW TO:
- Once hair is prepped with styling, create a deep side part then take a huge section of hair in the front.
- Pin everything in the back section inward.
- Create a few waves in the front section using a barrel curling iron then break the curls with your fingers.
- Finish the look with hairspray.
Angelo David says
I love this hairstyle on Naomi. The styling gives a such old school glamour vibe, with a modern twist. The hair falling on the front frames her face beautifully."
So, would you do the Hi-lo hairstyle? I bet we'll see a lot more of them at the upcoming SAG Awards and Oscars.
