This week, top hair stylist Karin Bigler tells us about her newest trends. Karin Bigler is certainly a big name in the fashion industry. She works for the world’s major fashion magazines: Vogue Italia, GQ Germany and Dazed and Confused, just to name a few.  Bigler was born and raised in Switzerland before moving to Paris in 1999.There she worked as assistant to Marc Lopez and other famous hair dressers. But Karin also made quite a name for herself, and after all these years, hair is still her passion. Throughout her career she has continued to focus on the techniques of hair colors. About two years ago she said goodbye France, and now she lives in London where she continues her career and Bigler, along with her staff, find themselves addicted to a new culture and a city full of inspiration. It is from London that Bigler updates us on the latest hair trends and styles for spring and summer 2014.

What hair trends do you expect for spring and summer 2014? 

For trends, I see two different worlds. On one hand you have 2014 hair trends we have seen on the catwalks for summer, and on the other hand, there is also a lot going on in the world of pop and movie stars―the world of celebrities.

In both worlds we see the comeback of short hair for summer 2014. MILEY CYRUS shines at this point in the whole of London on the cover of Love Magazine. She has a classic undercut with shaved contours, but on top, the hair is longer. It is a gorgeous 80s haircut that sprang from the creative mind of the Dutch celebrity hairstylist Christiaan Houtenbos.

In the fashion world, top model SASKIA DE BRAUW continues her beauty career with a very short, boyish cut. She currently shines with this hairstyle in summer 2014 advertising campaigns for various fashion houses.

BEYONCÉ is probably the best example of a medium hairstyle. Her layered bob is a fashion statement to almost everyone.

Top model TONI GARRN, the Victoria’s Secret model, had her hair cut in a stylish bob for a shoot with French Vogue.

SAM ROLLINSON, British supermodel, recently went from a longer bob to a relatively short bob with bangs. Again, this is a perfect example of a trendy short haircut.

Long hair styles with layers, bangs or simply all one length just over the shoulder are all in vogue this season. Most catwalk trends have turned to long, smooth, straight hair. You can see this among other shows like that of Christopher Kane, Balmain and Alexander Wang.

Other catwalk trends are side parts and low ponytails. For the spring/summer 2014 show, I was asked to do the hairstyles; I chose a look with a side part.

Another clear trend is summer hairstyles with accessories. For example, use simple, colorful barrettes and headbands, or simply pieces of fabric that cling to your head.

What is your favorite hairstyle and why?

At this moment, I really love layered bob hairstyles. Personally, I wear my hair that way for a few months every year.

And when we talk about catwalk trends, I particularly like hairstyles with very cool accessories. I find it fun to play with accessories.

And hair color?

With its trendy colors I immediately think of Josh Woods’ team. For Marc Jacobs’ last show for Louis Vuitton, they created primary and thus very pronounced blondes, brunettes and red colors.

What is the must-have hair product for spring and summer 2014―the product that every woman should have in her beauty case?

One of my favorite products of the moment is POTION 9 SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONEL.It is a liquid hair care and styling product that you can use on both dry and wet hair POTION 9 protects your hair and is suitable for all hair types and lengths. Your hair gets great texture and it is a must-have for the beach or in your trendy city bag.
