Trend Alert: Crimped Hair

In the wake of all the beauty chat about matte hair and polished dreadlocks, it's not surprising that the hair style of our school days is back – yes, crimping is the latest retro, 80s trend on the block, alongside scrunchies and head scarves.

Designers from Luella to Julien Macdonald, showed models sporting often oversize, big, crimped hair, for next season.

At Luella, the school-girl crimped hair was teamed with Goth Glam, dark punk makeup, for the coolest-girl-in-sixth-form vibe.

If you're having that 'I've been here before' feeling, then just go for a lightly crimped, wavy hair look, as at Richard Nicoll. Keep the texture mussed up though, to make sure you stay modern.

The key to pulling off this trend is having really healthy hair to start with, as damaged hair will only look (and become) more damaged if it's crimped. Try just crimping sections for an unstructured vibe, and remember to use a good heat protection spray first.
