3 Fashion Week Hair Trends That Look Even Better Off The Runway
Article by Refinery29
Despite the flamboyant outfits and over-the-top presentations that happen each year during Fashion Week, minimal hair and makeup looks have felt more like the norm for stylists and models season after season.
But this year things have been a little different. Lipstick has been bright and bold, eyes have been graphic and colorful, and the hair? Well, the hair has been both stylish and wearable.
From natural curls to braids, buns, and accessories — in silky, diamond, and beaded varietals — it’s safe to say that this season put the fun back in Fashion Week. You’ll find some of our favorite hair trends from the runway, which will hopefully inspire you to change up your look, ahead.
At Naeem Khan, the look was a bit more complex. Hair was tightly pulled back into a low ponytail to start, then the strands left out were rolled up into an elegant woven bun.
Tory Burch kept the slick trend going, but focused on keeping the roots sleek, and left the ends of the hair teased.
The Low 'Do
Updos are great and all, but this season was all about taking hair down a peg — literally. Buns, both classic and messy, had a big moment during Fashion Week. Models at Dion Lee wore a low chignon at the nape of their necks, which can be dressed up or down depending on your mood. Plus, they're so easy to recreate with an elastics, brush, and a fistful of bobby pins.
The hair at Prabal Gurung was right up our alley. That is, messy. Some models were given tousled low knots with pieces hanging out of the bun and framing the face, like this look on Gigi Hadid.
The Big Slick
If NYFW taught us anything this year, it’s don’t be married to your hair part. Models have been hitting the catwalk with their strands slicked back for an effortless look that still looks put together. At Badgley Mischka, hair was pushed back into romantic waves that gave us bridal vibes.
The turbans at Cushnie Et Ocs were made of vibrant, metallic silk that could easily coordinate with any spring makeup palette. We're definitely eyeing this pink number...with the matching lipstick, of course.
