Milan moments: See the Milan Fashion Week SS18 street style hairstyles we loved

Beth | 25 September 2017

The world is your runway, ladies!


This weekend, London passed over the fashion month baton to Milan, where globally renowned fashion houses like Alberta Ferretti and Dolce & Gabbana showcased their SS18 collections.

After seeing such stylish street stylers in New York and London, we couldn’t wait to see what the streets of Milan had to offer in terms of hairstyle inspiration for the upcoming season. And as we’d hoped, the city certainly wasn’t short on style…

See the best street style looks from Milan Fashion Week

You’re probably getting sick of hearing us go on about berets by this point, but there’s no denying that French girl hair is one of the biggest trends around right now. They instantly give a plain outfit a cosmopolitan twist and they’re the perfect antidote for bad hair days, so it’s no wonder the #fbloggers are lapping up the look.

Pretty pixies

Gender fluidity in fashion is on the rise and this idea is set to transcend into the world of hair, too.

We’ve already seen stars like Kristen Stewart ditch their long locks for more androgynous buzz cuts, but if this seems too severe, you can still emulate the trend with a softer pixie cut.

VO5 Classic Styling Soft Moulding Wax

Editor’s tip: To make your pixie look more piecey, take a small amount of the VO5 Classic Styling Soft Moulding Wax and work it through your hair. This will help to shape and style your pixie into your desired look, without it leaving your hair feeling sticky or stiff.

If you thought we’d exhausted all possible variations of the bob and lob trend, think again!

This season’s take on the classic bob cut is shorter, more angular and a fashion statement in itself. Pair this minimalist style with bold brights or busy patterns and the contrast will give you a high-fashion finish that the paparazzi will go nuts for.

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray

Editor’s tip: Straightening your hair will give your bob a sleeker result. Protect your strands beforehand with a spritz of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray and it’ll help to limit heat damage, as well as leaving your locks silky and shiny for up to 72 hours.

Earlier this year, tiaras were spotted on everyone from Rita Ora to Chiara Ferragni; however, it seems they’ve had their moment and it’s time for a new regal look to take their place.

This season, the street stylers shunned delicate tiaras for elaborate, embellished headbands, which gave a more exotic, mysterious vibe to their ensembles. Bow down to the queen bee!

Coloured hair wraps

Remember those colourful hair wraps you used to get on beach holidays? Well, we have to admit that this is one of the more unexpected trends we’ve seen coming through this season, but sure enough coloured wraps are back!

Giving a free-spirited, playful look to this brunette‘s boho attire, we wouldn’t be surprised if this became next year’s hottest new festival hair trend!
