3 Fashion Week Hair Trends That Look Even Better Off The Runway

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.

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.
At Naeem Khan, the look was a bit more complex. NYFW TRESemmé Stylist, Odile Gilbe tightly pulled the hair back into a low ponytail to start, then the strands left out were rolled up into an elegant woven bun.
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.
On the other hand, models at Proenza Schouler had a grungier look with hair gelled back to create a fresh out of the shower effect.
Tory Burch kept the slick trend going, but focused on keeping the roots sleek, and left the ends of the hair teased.
Technicolor Turbans

We’re officially putting all the silk headwraps on our spring shopping list because they were practically everywhere during Fashion Week. Anna Sui sent her models down the runway with loose waves peeking out of silky, printed turbans.
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.
Kate Spade’s head accessories were more polished versions of the bandanas we've seen in seasons past. We love that these printed scarves felt like an intentional part of the runway look, but could also be thrown on to mask a bad hair day.
