Between New York’s Fashion Week models and the celebrities posing on the Emmy Awards red carpet, September gave us a lot of styles and trends to be inspired by—from sleek ponytails to beehives. Straight from the runways, the hairstylists from Matrix have shared the top four trends they expect to take women on and off the red carpet by storm.
1. Patent Leather Ponies: Nick Stenson, Matrix Artistic Director tells us ponytails are all the rage for next season, and we’re glad to hear it. Adding some high-shine updates the simple ponytail as seen during designer shows, such as Derek Lam.
Get the look: Influenced by the sleek styles of actresses like Kate Bosworth and Gwyneth Paltrow, Stenson recommends combining Matrix Design Pulse Glow to Pieces Shine Wax and Mix In Shine Brilliant Serum to damp hair for high shine. “It requires healthy, well-hydrated strands to wear this look well,” he adds. Try Matrix Total Results Moisture Cure 2-Phase Treatment.
2. Glamorous Waves: Long waves, tossed over one shoulder with deep side parts topped many collections during Fashion Week and numerous stars at the Emmy’s. “Glam-with-whimsy” feeling is perfect for lighthearted spring styles and will undoubtedly be embraced by the likes of Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez, says Artistic Designer Franco Della Grazia (who created looks like this for designer Betsey Johnson).
Get the look: Part hair to one side and pin behind the ear to keep strands in place. To add crisp definition to waves while taming frizz and flyaways, try a combination of styling cream and shine-enhancing serum like Matrix Design Pulse Loosely Defined Texture Creme and Mix In Shine Brilliant Serum.
3. Mod Beehives: The beehive is back, but with a twist. “At shows like Diane Von Furstenberg, high bouffants evoked the cool retro elegance of Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks. But rather than traditional sleek and solid shapes, these hives are roughed up and romantic—with lots of texture and even wisps and flyaways,” Matrix Artistic Director, Ammon Carver explains.
Get the look: A little teasing is necessary to create this ‘do and you’ll need a solid hairspray like Matrix Vavoom ShapeMaker Medium Hold Hairspray.
4. Scalloped Edges: Braids have made a recent comeback and they are here to stay, if Fashion Week is any indicator.
Get the look: We’re expecting boho-chic celebs like Drew Barrymore to sport this look. “Braids are best when they’re smooth and defined,” says Grazia. He recommends using Matrix Total Results Curl Super DeFrizzer Gel and Sleek Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil on damp hair.

Men and women don’t always see eye to eye — especially when it comes to what makes a lady look amazing. While you might find a blunt and structured ‘do incredibly chic, there’s a really good chance he just finds it weird. In an effort to demystify what guys find sexy, we polled a handful to find out which hairstyles men really do prefer.
“I’ll always like that sort of late ’60s long bangs with longer hair look. Think Mary Jane, Spider-Man’s girlfriend. I’ve noticed that Rose Byrne, who seems to be in every other movie right now, has been wearing her hair this way, and it has certainly captured my attention.”
“Good hair will get my attention from across the room. I really like warm, vivid colors. The style itself, and whether it looks good, will change with the times and who is wearing it, but a great color will always get me.”
“I love a simple ponytail and no makeup. I guess that’s the sporty look.”
Long and Simple
“Keep it simple! I like women with longer hair. It can be straight — slight curls are okay — but in general girls should keep it long and in good condition. I like it long because it looks more feminine.”
“My personal fave is a messy bob. I cut my girlfriend’s curly red locks this way; it makes the back of her fair neck look so appealing. I’ve cut most of my past girlfriends hair. They always seemed to like it. I’m a serial bob-ist.”
Short and Punky
“I was always a fan of short, punky, pixie, black hair look.”
Long and Wild
“I love long, messy hair. Mary-Kate Olson and her messy bohemian look is hot. But I can also get down with a really structured short haircut. The trick is to match your hair with your face shape, and more importantly your persona. This may come as a surprise to a lot of women, but guys are much more perceptive when it comes to visual cues than we’re given credit for. Though many of us may not be able to verbalize, we do notice.”
“I like the more classic hairstyles, like Christina Hendrickson on Mad Men. Of course, that might also be my preference for redheads.”
“I like long layers on a girl; it’s more interesting than just straight hair. Blunt haircuts make girls look too harsh, and they’re not contemporary — if her hair is too structured, it can be distracting and intimidating. Loose, wavy hair makes a girl look relaxed and approachable.”
“I love when a woman feels confident about her face to wear short hair. It’s strong and powerful.”
Hair extensions can completely transform your look in just a few hours. Are you considering getting extensions? Want to know the differences between human and synthetic extensions? Read on.
One-hundred-percent human hair extensions are as close as you can get to natural hair. “There are different levels available depending on the processing it goes through,” says hair-extension expert Shelia Stotts. Non-remy hair is the cheapest and is processed with products to make it shiny. “By the sixth wash or so, the coating has washed away, and they look stringy,” she says. Remy hair, on the other hand, still has the cuticle intact, which gives a more natural look. Remy hair extensions are usually sourced from virgin hair from India or China. Human hair extensions look more realistic and can be cut, colored and styled as desired but they can also be expensive and heavy.
Cheaper than human hair, artificial hair doesn’t look nearly as natural because of the bulky quality “and because it lacks the fluid motion of real hair. Although technologies have evolved, and some synthetic hair can be heated to retain styles, “they still don’t breath like human hair and can get hard and crunchy from styling products and tools,” says Stotts. Synthetic hair is less costly than human hair and good for testing out what you would look like with extensions. However, this option doesn’t look as natural as human hair and doesn’t blend as well. Additionally, these extensions tangle easily and will break if they are cut or burn if colored or styled with heat.
