Last week I attended Lucky FABB west, the Lucky magazine west coast conference for fashion and beauty bloggers. I couldn’t wait to see what the most fashionable women in the blogosphere were wearing. Color and pattern was the big trend at the event, with almost everyone wearing the most brilliant hues. Unfortunately it was a bit too much for my senses, and after a while all the hot pink flippy skirts, festive floral print flouncy blouses, canary yellow “it” bags and neon green open-toe mile-high heels started to blur together. What did stand out were the hair styles. There were super long sleek styles and shoulder-length flips. There were up-dos and magenta streaks. There were poofs and ringlets, big buns and dainty chignons. Because my camera ran out of battery I didn’t take any photos. Instead I drew, and because we were all sitting down most of the time my best drawings are of the bloggers profiles and heads. Here are the hairstyle sketches I drew of the audience at Lucky FABB.
The Glamour Girl
The majority of the fashion bloggers wore their hair in a long, sleek style with large, glamorous curls holding back the hair on either side of their face. The style looked something like this drawing, only not as messy. Yes, glamour was the name of the game at Lucky FABB. I haven’t seen so many women with such perfectly styled hair since high school graduation. Considering that the conference started at 8 am I have to assume that most of the bloggers in attendance woke up before dawn to blow out and carefully curl their long tresses.
The Small Poof
A couple of bloggers had the top of their hair done in a small poof like this. A sparkly barrette held the teased poof in place.
A Small Chignon
This young woman’s small twisted bun set off a gorgeous rhinestone necklace worn with a ruffle collar. (I found out recently that her name is Karina and she writes the blog Cocoa.)
The Large Sock Bun
One young woman had her hair up in a big sock bun. Although I’ve seen a lot of this style online, I’ve never really noticed it on someone in real life before. It’s a dramatic look.
Braids and Wings
I counted three women in the audience with magenta hair. This blogger’s dark pink streaks looked very dramatic with her black hair when she pulled it back into this tousled half-pony tail.
But where are the short styles?
Short hair was almost nonexistent and I noticed the lack of it immediately. I don’t know why everyone had long hair, but it’s definitely a trend among the fashion bloggers that attended the event. I have to count myself among them because although my hair is not waist-length is does hit my shoulders. It wasn’t done in one of these glamorous styles though. Getting up at seven am was early enough. My hair was clean and brushed. That’s it.
What do you think of my hairstyle sketches? How do you wear your hair? Have you ever done your hair in one of these styles?
