23 Inspiring Hairdos From New York Fashion Week!

Slicked back, high ponies, dip-dyed, glam curls, fishtails, pin-straight, topknots, bangs, and braids—why is it that with all these amazing hair options we still let our locks go limp and run out the door a little flat and under-prepared? To remedy our frizz, we looked backstage and to the streets at NYFW and got inspired by some of the head-turning looks that really made us wish we spent that extra second with a curling iron or comb. Some people just have it; those ideal waves, no matter the weather. And in addition to being insanely jealous of their natural mops, we try to take a cue from their 'dos. Thanks to our R29 shutterbugs at all of the week's hottest tickets, we've compiled a coiffure lookbook of sorts to motivate us all towards total hair perfection. But don't worry if the shellacked, gravity-defying styles of the models at Preen seem a little out of reach—we have it on good word that messy buns are still hot for fall!
