Prada’s Dip-Dye Hair Inspiration
Remember in the last post when I was falling all over myself at the sight of Emma Stone’s ohmygodamazing suit* for the July issue of Vogue? Well, I just caught sight of Prada’s Womenswear Fall 2012 ad campaign and I’m totally having a relapse. THESE SUITS! They’re everything I want to be wearing for autumn! I know you’re sitting at your computer right now going, Okay, slow down. It’s still summer! but these days of barely-there tank tops and shorts make me itch for cooler days when the weather doesn’t dictate exactly what I can (or cannot) wear. As long as the ice cream truck is stationed outside the Boston Common, I will be daydreaming about AW12! (I’ll also be soaking up sunshine and working on my tan- I promise I really love summer, too!)
While the prints and proportions of these suits are what make my heart go pitter-patter, I have to say that I’m also really liking Prada’s take on the dip-dyed hair technique. It looks as if the entire bottom layer of the model’s hair is colored the accent shade in addition to ends, which have an slight ombre/dip-dye hybrid effect. I think it’s a really striking look and I’d love to see it come to life on some clients. I imagine it would look amazing braided or in a high pony-tail, too. In fact, I’ll go prep the hair extensions now while you drool over the pictures… let me know when you’re done and then let’s have some f.u.n!
