Fashion Week is the moment all fashionistas are waiting for – and the one in September is especially appreciated. Who doesn’t dream of a front row seat at DKNY or Ralph Lauren? And since that time of the year is right now, we stalked the runways to see what hair trends we could spot. What should we look forward to next spring?
1. The faux-bangs
For all those who would like to experiment bangs, but don’t want to cut their hair, faux-bangs is the solution. What does this imply? A side parting and a chunky weave almost covering the eye. This goes particularly well for long and wavy hair, as spotted on the New York runways. However, some designers chose a sleek updo which incorporated the faux-bangs, for a lovely retro look. Get the look by applying mousse on your wet hair and dry it off with a side parting.
2. The colored hair
A hit this summer, colored hair will be with us for another season. Anna Sui picks a punk style with blue, short hair, while Oscar de la Renta keeps it classy with just a few highlights in a color that matches the dress. Other hair stylists went for colored bangs, while others just colored the interior of the hair. This is not easy to pull off, since you need to bleach your hair in order to get a nice, pastel shade. Our recommendation is that you go for highlights for starters.
3. The braid
Nothing is more romantic and more elaborated-looking than good old braids. Tory Burch went for a side fishbraid, Calla picked a side braid in a shorter length, while Honor mixed milkbraids with a middle parting that looks super classy. Look for tutorials online and practice the braid of your dreams, or find something for any occasion.
4. The messy bob
Victoria Beckham’s time of mastering the bob is officially over. We don’t like it sleek and neat anymore! This spring, pick an above the shoulders straight cut, with a middle or side parting, and let it arrange itself as it dries out. Perhaps some mousse will come in handy – just forget about the hair straightener! Peter Som raises the steaks with interior pink highlights, for an even edgier look.
