Out-of-bed waves are the modern version of beach waves as a hairstyle trend in summer 2022...
Chanel's show is considered one of the highlights of the haute couture season each season and always creates a lot of conversation. As happened again recently: Not only was the look that took the longest time to produce in the history of the fashion house presented – a total of 2525 hours, which corresponds to more than 105 days – but also the appearance of Pharrell Williams on the drums, the over a giant screen opening the show was beyond breathtaking.
The hair styling for the presentation was no less memorable. Instead of perfectly defined curls, the decision was made to opt for pronounced waves. The hairstyle trend of the hour was born: out-of-bed waves set the tone and could already become a trend hairstyle now, in summer 2022.
Chanel designer Virginie Viard is considered a master of balanced looks and perfectly placed references. For the interaction with the noble haute couture creations for autumn/winter 2022/23, which were made in the studios in the finest craftsmanship over weeks and months, Chanel did not rely on immaculately coiffed hair. On the contrary: In order to create the typically nonchalant French chic, soft waves were chosen that looked as if the models had already slept on them the night before and had walked straight from the bed to the opulent show location.
With this simple trick, the French fashion house once again showed what haute couture could achieve in 2022: the balancing act between modern, everyday lifestyle and the most luxurious tailoring. Of course, it would be tempting to succumb to an illusion all too quickly – after all, the creations of haute couture, despite casual hairstyles, are still considered absolutely unattainable for the vast majority of people. We are all the more grateful for the easy-to-implement inspiration for our hair styling in summer 2022.
The basis of Chanel's out-of-bed waves is formed by soft waves that appear decidedly loose. You don't even have to have slept on your curls for these light waves - although this technique can certainly lead to success. This option is far less time-consuming: For the follow-up styling, you ideally use the wave iron, which creates the desired styling in no time. You should not put the wave iron directly at the roots, otherwise, the waves will look too artificial and wanted, but depending on the length of the hair a few centimeters below.
Once you've worked your way through all your hair, it's time for the second styling part of the trend hairstyle: Characteristic of Chanel's out-of-bed waves is a light frizz and a matt hair structure. To do this, carefully comb through the waves with a paddle brush and then use some hairspray for more hold. Finally, twirl your hair with your fingers and the trendy out-of-bed waves for summer 2022 are done.
