Hair Trends 2009

If you love to be in the center of attention, if you prefer wearing only trendy clothes you just cannot do without hair styles that are in vogue this season.

The choice for you is huge: extremely short, extremely girly, extremely sexual or extremely slick. However, for those more conservative there are a bob style and a mermaid romantic image.

The Cropped Bob & The Pixie Crop

If you cut the bob in 2008 and want to look stylish in 2009 you have plenty of choices. You may want to let your hair grow out or do something more extreme with your hair. No matter what you choose you will be fashionable.

The Cropped Bob


The cropped bob was in fashion in 2008 and it is still with us. To my mind, too many ladies wear this style and if you want to be well like others it is for you. However, for women who like to stand out a lot we have a new, changed cropped bob which is much shorter that before. It is short all over, even with a heavily shortened blunt cut fringe. This new style is for those who ooze confidence. A good example is Agyness Deyn with her cropped fringed bob.


Winter 2009 hot nail trends


There are a few things that can tell you a lot about the woman. Personality is revealed in everything a woman does, wears and prefers. Want to know what mood your girlfriend is today? Look at her nails! Pay attention to the color of her polish. Is it elegant, playful or casual? Does a woman want to make a statement with her nails or she just wants to keep it low-key? Nail polish tells you everything.

Bright Pink Lips

Couture in the City reader Shara asks: Q:  Will hot pink lips be trendy for spring/summer of 2009?


A: Hmmm…that’s a tough one Shara. Hot pink lips were trendy in the spring of ‘07, and are making huge waves now (Rihanna is always softening her edgy look with hot pink lips), so it’s hard to say. If you are itching to try a hot pink trend, I would do it now, at the tail end of summer and before winter sets in. Check out your local pharmacy and grab a few different hot pink shades to see what works best with your skin tone. You can work a hot pink lip right now in a very fierce way with a smoky eye and a sleek but chic ensemble.
