Each season celebrities and models strut down the runways wearing the latest fashion and beauty trends that inspire women everywhere. Every fashionable woman knows that getting the most sought-out dress or top ropa de moda isn’t enough. Hair can be your best accessory and if styled correctly, can make your entire look.
Theodore Leaf, Suave Professionals celebrity stylist and lead stylist from the NBC hit show “Fashion Star,” knows the importance of creating the right hairstyle for any outfit. “I’ve styled many designer runway shows and they all want hairstyles that accentuate the clothing to create the ultimate look,” he says. “Whether you’re going for a fun and flirty ponytail to pair with colored denim or an elegant chignon to complement your little black dress and red zapatos de mujer, the perfect hairstyle is essential for pulling together an outfit.”
Read on for Theodore’s hair and style tips that are sure to keep you on trend this season.
As 2012 is upon us, it is a great time to look at designer forecasts for what are the hot colors for modern home decor in this new year. Benjamin Moore's 2012 ColorPulse event showcased an interesting trend in Preservation due to the current economic climate and a desire to connect with our past.
What is being called "Fabulous Foliage" includes shades of greens, and homes are even once again being decorated with botanical prints. Green and white fern fabric can be seen in home furnishings, such as accent chairs, throughout the home.
"Global Safari" brings in unique home décor with ethnic accents, especially with the use of Indian and Moroccan textiles - lots of color and patterns going on there.
"Mixed Metals" heralds back to the unique decorations of 70's retro, so not so much the shiny silvers, golds and bronzes seen lately. Think of mirrored, but not like in mercury glass that has been so big in 2011.
Another modern home décor trend, "Modern Art," includes bright, bold hues and patterns, youthful-looking furniture and watercolor patterns - all with that IKEA feel. These splashes of color will also be found in housewares and gifts, like hostess and housewarming gifts.
And the unique décor, "Yacht Club," trend can be achieved by throwing in red as a home interiors accent, along with weathered wood, anything rope-covered, and products incorporating a flag influence.
Modern home décor design trends will include native geometrics, fossils, Southwest influence, totems and stacking elements, handcrafted lace and embroidered items, recycled and repurposed items, damask, and rugs that look worn.
Watch for unique home décor cues from nature, and a move towards functionality and a self-sustaining lifestyle. Elements to look for include blueprints and maps as art, graphics, mazes, 3D art, digital art, terrariums, and food growing and canning. Big colors are blues, modern neutrals, layered greens, zapatos de novia,whitespace, pixilated colors, gray/charcoal/black, and red/orange as contrasts. Look for high contrasts, oxidized shine, and silvery and mirror effects in unique decorations.Fashion everbuying for 2012 harkens back to those 70's unique décor appliance colors. It's almost hard to believe that we will once again see "Harvest Gold", "Avocado" and "Almond" (this last one is still lurking in my kitchen). Maybe these colors will look better being worn than cooked on. We can only hope.
"Layered Neutrals," with tones of oatmeal, brown, tan and grey are making the jump from wall accent colors to layered combinations in outfits.
"Pastels" will be seen in blush pink, mint green and robin's egg blue. "Graphic Prints," especially in black and white will be everywhere along with "Tangerine Tango."
