Off Duty Ballerina – 2014 Fall Hair & Beauty Trend

22 Jul Off Duty Ballerina – 2014 Fall Hair & Beauty Trend


Ballerina’s provided the inspiration at Diane von Furstenberg, with hair worn in ballerina buns and faces illuminated with shades of nude, lilac and taupe.

“Diane wanted a ballerina-inspired bun, but a ballerina in rehearsal,” said hairstylist Orlando Pita.“When a dancer goes out after a performance, she shoves on her coat, does her lip, and her hair is just pulled back, or she doesn’t change her hair after the performance, she just leaves it—there’s an elegance to it.”

So he went for a less perfect version of the dancer staple: He prepped models’ hair with dry shampoo before pulling it into a ponytail at the back of the head.

For a finger-combed effect, he ran a teasing comb through the hair. After twisting the ponytail into a bun and securing it, Pita broke it up with his fingers.

Off-duty dancer hair was also present at Prada, Altuzarra and Erdem, with hair scraped back into insouciantly elegant DIY chignons.
