One tends to see a variety of looks on the runway at New York City’s Fashion Week. There are lush dresses, bold accessories and gorgeous pairings of luxurious clothes that probably have you thinking one thing: when will I ever wear that? Luckily, there are several hairstyles on the runway that you can try for yourself. This year is all about revivals. Most fashion is recycled and given a modern twist, and this year is no different. 2011 marks the time for a revival of the 1960s and 1970s hairstyles along with a combination of previously seen trends, such as messy volume. From the runway to your home, here are some 2011 hair trends that you can try!

The Effortless Look

Yes, this is still big, and we’re going to see even more of this trend throughout 2011. For those of you who are always on the go, this style should come natural to you! If you’re a perfectionist but want to get in on the effortless look, refrain from combing every little strand into place. Your hair shouldn’t look like you spent hours on it. Instead, your hair should look easy to style. Try ruffling your hair just before you walk out the door. If you don’t want to look too wild, try a messy bun or low ponytail.


Twiggy's iconic pixie cut

1960s and 1970s

These two decades have an array of notable fashions and looks, but specifically, the bob is back for 2011 with a twist. Waved and curly bobs are expected to hit the fashion scene for the next year. Pair it with fringed bangs (which are also reappearing) and you’ve got a new look. If this curly or wavy bob is something you would like to try, be sure to invest in some high quality mousse to achieve that soft curl that is essential for a bob style haircut. If you’re a little more daring, then a pixie cut might be the perfect style for you. Worn by the glamorous Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy and Julie Andrews (just to name a few), the pixie cut became a signature image of graceful women who weren’t afraid to be different.
