Today we’re taking a short break from our usual programming to bring you a few fringe trends.
I usually try and stay within trends that I know are already close to going mainstream.
But, I feel like it’s still important to keep a look out for those fringe trends. Some die out, some stay on the fringe, and a few do become full blown trends.
So here’s a post on three trends that I’ve been keeping an eye on for a while, we’ll see what happens to them in the next few seasons.
Feather Hair Extensions
They’re a bunch of three or so feathers threaded into your hair like normal hair extensions. Fully washable, blow dry-able, and style-able, they usually slip out on their own after a month or so.
I’m still convincing my roommate to get some, as they would look absolutely stellar with her boho-rocker style, but the girls I’ve seen around the city are just too cute.
After the whole uproar over Emma Roberts wearing a body chain a few weeks ago (am I the only one who thought she looked cute?) I feel that this trend is on its way to being mainstream. However, it’s not too late to be an early adopter.
I know that I already have a few pieces on my wish list, now I just have to decide which one is actually coming home with me…
Half Moon Manicure
A favorite of Dita Von Teese, this vintage manicure from the ’30s and ’40s is making a come back. I think it looks very old school glamor with an edge, and I’ll definitely be trying a DIY at home.
If you’re interested also, I’m going to be using this tutorial on youtube. Considering it uses binder reinforcements as guides, it looks pretty idiot-proof.
