No.21 makes pink hair look even prettier this season, with models Fernanda Ly and Lina Hoss both boasting pastel hued tresses on the runway. Want a look that’s more ‘wearable’ than Hoss’ pastel buzz cut? Then try Ly’s casual, low ponytail in baby pink!

Editor’s tip: Maintain the vibrancy of your pink hair colour by using a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for coloured hair, like theTRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo(500ml, £3.69*) and the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Conditioner (500ml, £3.69*).

The bob haircut is back and it’s been given the high fashion seal of approval! That’s right, Prada has revived this classic short hairstyle, taking this cute, 1920s-inspired bob and making it feel cool, and contemporary with the addition of a simple bobby pin. So, get ready to do your best impression of Greta Garbo next summer!

It seems like spring/summer 2017 is all about the bob, and Moschino’s Betty Boop-inspired, short, curly bob (which came in a stunning variety of retro colours, FYI) definitely proves this. Still need more convincing? We think that sister act Gigi and Bella Hadid might be able to sway you. Yep, we thought so.

Partings are a great way to refresh your hairstyle without having to resort to scissors! So, if you’re looking for some parting inspiration, then take a leaf out of Missoni’s book and work it with this season’s wet-look hair. This way, you can rock 2 major hair trends at once! We’re just that fashionable, darling.

Editor’s tip: Want to recreate this look at home? Then try the TRESemmé Make Waves Sculpt & Define Spray Gel (£5.50*). It’s a lightweight spray gel perfect for controlling frizz and fighting flyaways. Just apply to damp damp hair and use a comb to create a sleek look. Finish off your ‘do with the VO5 Sublime Sleek Creation Hairspray (£3.99*) for a shiny catwalk-ready finish!

Clothes? What clothes? The best thing by far about Fendi’s catwalk show was the cute, geometric hair accessories on display! These adorable accessories really were a treat for the eyes, with their candy colouring and funky shapes, they simply looked good enough to eat.

Who said buns are basic? Not the stylists at the Jil Sander SS17 show, that’s for sure. The classic look was given a new lease of life this season by intricately twisting the hair to form a unique, low bun. Just make sure you have plenty of hairspray and bobby pins on hand to hold this look in place!

Always wanted to rock a bob? Well, before you commit yourself to the stylists chair and get all your hard-earned length chopped off, take a look at the Giorgio Armani SS17 show. They demonstrated how you can work a brilliant faux half bob – it’s just as chic, only without a single pair of scissors in sight. Phew!

Warning: this hairstyle is only for the coolest of customers, but if you think you can handle this short, edgy cut, then this could easily be the answer to all your hair prayers. And if you want to add some runway-inspired interest to your mohawk, you can always follow in the footsteps of this model from the Anteprima SS17 show and opt for a bold blonde colour in your longer lengths!

You can rid your mind of any ’90s barbie girl-looking locks, right now – because for SS17, it’s all about subtle crimping. The trick is to keep your roots and ends straight, and only to crimp the mid-lengths of hair. It’s a simple trick, but one that brings this look flying into the 21st century!

Let’s face it: no best hair list would be complete without a top knot. Don’t overlook this casual style, it’s a hair favourite with men, women, models and A-listers alike.
