Clue: This season was all about the accessories!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… no, not Christmas, London Fashion Week! With so many fashion houses showing in London this season (from Emporio Armani to Temperley London) we saw a variety of different hairstyles making their way down the runway, giving us a glimpse at next year’s emerging trends.
Hair accessories proved to be a major focal point at the shows, with a few returning favourites (ribbons aren’t going anywhere, people!) and a few newcomers, too. So, have a quick scroll through our gallery, above, to get to grips with each style and keep reading to get the lowdown on each of the looks.
5 LFW hair looks to have on your radar
Braids at Temperley London
Proving that sometimes less really is more, Temperley London models wore their hair in sleek, simple 3-strand braids.
Complimenting the collection’s wistful, French Riviera theme, headscarves in coordinating colours were tied around as headbands to pull the summery, holiday vibes together. Nous aimons!
Editor’s tip: Braid envy? The key to nailing this look is to use a shine spray, like the VO5 Smoothly Does It Tame & Shine Spray to add a glossy, healthy-looking shine to your mane.
This will also help to slick down any flyaways while preventing frizz, too, so your braid will look perfectly pretty and pristine.
Pearls at Simone Rocha
If vintage style is your cup of tea, Simone Rocha’s pearl hair slides will be right up your street. With side-parted bangs held in place with ornate pearl accessories, the hair reflected the models’ doll-like Victorian vibes perfectly.
Ribbons at Ryan Lo
Ryan Lo took us on a trip down the aisle with his wedding-themed collection and the hairstyles were equally romantic.
Headbands at Holly Fulton
We love a headband, so naturally we fell head over heels when we spotted Holly Fulton’s monochromatic style.
Why not try giving this practical accessory a fashion-forward edge by wearing it across your forehead, just like this model? Pair with soft waves for a retro finish and you’ll be ready to take on the runway.
Editor’s tip: To help create these barely-there waves, scrunch some of the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam through damp hair to add soft, natural-looking movement.
Half-up messy buns at Emporio Armani
At Emporio Armani‘s SS18 show it was the hair itself which acted as the accessory, styled into half-up mini buns.
Rather than a top knot on the crown of the head, the dishevelled, piecey buns were positioned at the nape of the neck for a chicer style. Could this be next year’s take on the hun? We’ll have to wait and see!
