Every season London Fashion Week presents us with some amazing hairstyles, many of which are more works of art than genuinely wearable hairstyles. But this season amongst some of the more avant-garde ‘dos, we spotted a number of looks that we’d definitely be keen to try.
5 hairstyles we can’t wait to try from LFW AW19
1. Beaded headbands at Simone Rocha
At this point would it even really be fashion week without headbands? Simone Rocha’s models sported girly beaded headbands worn with soft waves, giving us total princess vibes. Easy enough to recreate at home, it’s time to start building your headband collection!
2. Pre-Raphaelite waves at Halpern
Texture was the name of the game at Halpern’s AW19 show, where models rocked bohemian half-wavy, half-straight hair. With the waves kept around the face, they added a unique, whimsical feel and put the focus on the gilded gold eye make-up.
Editor’s tip: Wave envy? To make your waves last all day, remember to use hairspray. The VO5 Flexible Hold Hairspray works well for soft, natural looks as it provides a light hold that’s not crispy or hard feeling so you can still run your hands through your hair.
3. Windswept and interesting at Alexachung
Forever battling against static and flyaways? You’ll like this one. At Alexachung the windswept look was a thing to be embraced rather than feared, with natural texture and imperfections reigning supreme. Finishing off the look with ’90s tied bandanas, dishevelled never looked so good.
4. Rainbow lights at Mary Katrantzou
Pastel clip-ins were added to the hair at the Mary Katrantzou show to match the rainbow colours of the collection. Multicoloured ombre extensions were blended into the model’s hair creating peekaboo hidden highlights that revealed themselves as they walked.
Looking for festival hair inspiration for summer? Here’s one you can rock without the commitment of dyeing your actual hair!
5. ’50s waves at Ryan Lo
Bored of your usual waves? Take inspiration from Ryan Lo’s retro waves by styling your mane into a deep side parting with flowing voluminous waves for instant glamour.

5 memorable catwalk hairstyles from LFW SS18
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!
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.
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!
