Haute Couture fall 2016 hairstyles you can wear IRL
Curly-haired girls will probably recognise this hairstyle. The puff, also known as the pineapple, is a popular ‘do in the natural hair community, but for fall couture 2016, we saw Chanel give the hairstyle a fashionable twist by teaming it with a prim and proper Aliceband.
Before you try your hand at recreating it, don’t forget to check out our step-by-step tutorial by MiniMarley!
For this hairstyle, couturier Francesco Scognamiglio borrowed from classic men’s hair. This ultra sleek, wet-look ‘do is perfect for those who want to give their short crop a cocktail hour-ready spin.
But don’t worry if you have long locks, you can still create the same look. Just gather your lengthy tresses into a sleek ponytail and make the VO5 Classic Styling Mega Hold Gel Spray (£2.99*) your new BFF.
Wondering how exactly to use hair gel to recreate this hairstyle?
Old Hollywood glamour
Looking for something more classic? Then why not draw inspiration from Julien Fournie’s ’40s-inspired waves? This uber elegant ‘do oozes old Hollywood glamour and will instantly make you look like a silver screen siren. Just perfect your waves with our tutorial.
If slick hairstyles aren’t your cup of tea, then this ‘do is a great option, as it’s all about looking perfectly undone and windswept! Gather your hair back and gently pull out or brush out wisps of your locks near your hairline. Trust us, it’ll look ultra fierce.
Au naturel waves
Alberta Ferretti’s haute couture presentation proved that not all couture hairstyles are completely out there. Instead, she opted for a pretty, low key ‘do with natural-looking, soft waves. The key to nailing this look? Keep your waves barely-there and your hair ultra shiny!
Tip: If your mane is looking a little bit dull, spritz it with some TIGI Bed Head Headrush Shine Hairspray (£17.50*) for an added shine boost!
Being a naturalista isn’t always easy, especially when you’re looking for a pretty, protective hairstyle for parties and formal gatherings.
While high buns are a great way of keeping your ends safe and sound, if you’re a little bored of rocking the same old ‘do, rest assured there’s a way to update your go-to style. Just add some cornrows à la Jean Paul Gaultier and make that bun red carpet-worthy in an instant!
Believe it or not, quiffs are a really versatile short hairstyle. If you’re struggling for ways to dress up your mane, think about adding some tousled textures to your hair. By adding a touch of texture and a little volume, it’ll instantly make your quiff look soft, feminine and, of course, ready for all sorts of after-dark fun!
The models at Alexis Mabille’s couture show took straight hair to the next level with their extremely sleek tresses. Want to know the secret behind getting super straight hair? It’s all about preparation – so a good heat protection spray, like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray (£5.50*) – whose keratin-infused formula helps to reduce frizz and flyaways, while also adding shine – is an absolute must!

First, let it be known that the All Things Hair team absolutely love ponytails. But sometimes, you just want something a little more, well, exciting. Fortunately the session stylists at Valentino heard our hair prayers and gave us this nifty ponytail update. Elegant and super easy to create, what more could a girl want from a hairstyle, right?
We predict that extra large hair accessories are going to be a huge trend (pun intended), so Christian Dior’s oversized metal hair clips are definitely a winner in our eyes. Get ready to supersize your accessories, ladies!
