texture vs gloss; LARA JOHNSON ON HOW TO GET TWO OF AUTUMN'S HOTTEST HAIR LOOKS lifestyle.
On the catwalk: Luella, Vivienne Westwood and our very own Julien Macdonald, pictured, were sending their models down the catwalk with high volume, high texture hair, worn long and crimped for real drama.
Get the look: Whether you crimp it all or just do it in sections, you'll need to dig out your old crimping iron. For real drama, crimp the whole head in small sections, then brush out the underneath layers for maximumvolume. A more understated way to wear this look is to crimp just the top layers.
Finally, if you want to play with the trend before shelling out for a crimping iron, plait your hair in small plaits while wet, then allow to dry and loosen for a natural crimp.
On the catwalk: Just as dramatic but at the complete opposite end of the spectrum was the smooth, glossy look shown by Eley Kishimoto, Yves Saint Laurent, pictured, and Jasper Conran - futuristic, boyish and totally glam.
Get the look: This is all about the cut, so your first port of call is the salon - and while you're at it get a gloss treatment too, either with or without a colour base. Next, make sure your hair is in a fantastic condition, using a smoothing conditioner and occasional nourishing hair masque. Protect with heat defence spray, then create a sleek finish with good quality straighteners and sheen enhancing styling products.
