It’s nothing new to see trends in fashion and beauty come round in cycles, from 60s revivals to the twenties Great Gatsby looks influencing the mainstream time and again. It seems that the cycle is getting faster and faster, however, with this year’s hottest catwalk hair resurgence coming all the way from the Millenium. Bringing back the super straightened locks of the early 2000s, catwalks from London, Paris and Milan have made a statement – poker straight is back with a bang.
While we’re no strangers to ghd styling, the intricate curls and waves created by the heat stylers in recent years might just fall by the wayside for fashion addicts as the sleek and straight look dominates the catwalks and fashion spreads. A contrast to the ever increasing trend for curls and embracing natural wavy texture in the past few years, it should come as no surprise that this trend has become best way to make a real statement. The experts at ghd saw it coming, making the Eclipse styler’s incredible straightening power on all hair textures a must for Spring/Summer 2014.
On catwalks like Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan, Spring straight hair is fair from flat, though. Give it an expensive, glossy and well looked after sheen over all to keep the blunt ends and sharp cuts from looking over processed or out of style.

The most striking looks that speak to this straight hair trend are blunt cuts with bold fringes, seen in the London and Paris Fashion Weeks to great reception. Combining super sleek hair with exaggerated and perfect partings gives an expensive, deliberate and bold edge to long straight strands – it’s no accident that you’ve gone sleek and chic with your hair, and your chosen style means business.”
Whether you’re going for a deep side, or perfectly straight middle parting, retire your beloved curls and give a chic and sleek straight look a chance this Spring.
