Paris Fashion Week has officially come to an end (sobs!). And over the past month, we’ve eagerly watched the New York, London and Milan runway presentations to see all the stylish hairstyles on offer.
So, before we say au revoir to the most fashionable city in the world, we’re shining a spotlight on the Paris Fashion Week runway hairstyles we want to try (and you should, too!).
8 hair looks from the PFW runways that will make any outfit look 10/10
Sleek pigtails at Alexander McQueen
Have you ever wondered what braided pigtails would look like if they were super sleek? It seems like Alexander McQueen wondered the same, as they sent models down the runway with fierce, pretty polished plaits. Wednesday Adams would seriously approve.
Editor’s tip: Creating the perfect braid is easy with the TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm around! We love this balm because its great for adding grip and structure to our plaits, making sure our styles turn out looking selfie-ready.
Half-up hair at Chanel
Beach waves don’t always have to be worn down to look good! If you want to wear your waves Chanel-style this season, you’ll need to invest in some ribbon and fashion your mane into this soft half-up look.
Double bands at Christian Dior
Christian Dior understands that the modern woman doesn’t always have to time to style her hair, especially if she’s rushing from the office to the gym etc. The solution? Headbands.
Models wore double Alice bands in their hair, keeping in line with the collection’s minimal, cool-girl aesthetic.
Micro fringes and looped ponytails at Dries Van Noten
While you may not be ready to get a micro fringe, you can give your ponytail a Dries Van Noten vibe by wearing it casual, low and looped.
Hippie hair at Saint Laurent
Island hair at Jacquemus
Jacquemus’ runway took us to the French Riviera and back by choosing to give all the models on his runway a natural, fresh-out-of-water island girl look.
Just look at how defined and playful these long curls look, and then you’ll understand why we are obsessed.
Editor’s tip: Island girl hair isn’t hard to achieve at home! Just use some of the TIGI Bed Head Foxy Curls Contour Cream to help define your coils.
Windswept hair Altuzarra
Wispy baby hairs at Paco Rabanne
Fendi aren’t the only fashion house embracing wispy baby hairs this season! Paco Rabanne’s featured them too, which can only mean one thing — we’re witnessing a trend in the making.
Whether you’re styling your hair into a low bun or a ponytail, try leaving out a few face-framing strands to get this romantic, effortless look.
See the looks we loved from last seasons runway, below.
PFW A/W18: The mane looks you’ll be seeing everywhere
Glossy side-swept hair at Rochas
Forget middle partings, it was all about glossy side-swept hair at Rochas’ AW18 presentation. The best way to complete this preppy, Blair Waldorf-worthy hairstyle? With a barrette hair accessory, of course.
Editors’s tip: In order to create this sleek and chic hairstyle, you’ll need a straightener and the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray.
Not only will this snazzy product protect your mane against heat damage, but it’ll leave it looking shinier, too.
Wispy ponytails at Valentino
Whether it’s down to the wind or humid air, wisps and flyaways are always inevitable. But instead of fighting against them, follow in the footsteps of Valentino’s models and embrace them.
Messy topknots at Chanel
Crimped hair at Sonia Rykiel
This fresh take on the trend (spotted on the Sonia Rykiel runway) features blown out crimps that are full of volume and oozing with glamorous grunge vibes.
Half-up, half-down twist at Hermès
While you might not be able to get your hands on a Birkin bag, you can recreate this hairstyle we spotted the models slaying on the Hermès runway: the half-up, half-down twist.
This romantic hairstyle is practically made for vintage lovers, as it is inspired by the roaring ’40s and bound to make you feel like a retro queen.
Curled ends at Christian Dior
Not only will you look like you’ve just stepped out of a salon, but your mane will make the perfect accessory to any cool outfits you might have hiding in your wardrobe. Sashay away!
Flowers and cornrow braids at Noir Kei Ninomiya
Not sure how to wear your mane for any upcoming festivals? Well, Noir Kei Ninomiya’s runway is here to remind you how cool it still is to pair cornrow braids with some floral hair accessories. #Sorted!

Maison Margiela looked to the deep blue sea for hair inspiration and sent models down the runway with sea salt-strewn hair, which was neatly slicked back.
Romantic wisps at Chanel
According to Chanel‘s runway show, there’s a new way to rock to a blogger bun: with romantic wisps. Keep things simple with a sleek middle parting, the loose strands at the front of the look help to soften and frame the face of the model.
Pair this ultra-feminine look with an elegant gown or power suit and you’ll be sure to #slay.
Brigitte Bardot-inspired hair at Miu Miu
As you can see, this headband makes the otherwise simple messy bun style look put together and ultra-stylish. We don’t know about you, but we’re stocking up on this accessory, pronto!
Coppery auburn hair at Louis Vuitton
If we’ve learnt anything from Louis Vuitton‘s SS18 runway, it’s that eye-catching shades of red are having a moment. Need proof? Just look at how this model rocks this bright copper colour and then you’ll understand what we mean — gorgeous, right?

Paris Fashion Week AW17: The noteworthy mane moments
Want to know which runway hairstyles we loved from the AW17 runway? Keep on reading…
We spotted them at the Balmain and Andrew GN shows, and instantly fell in love. But if you think that cornrows are a little too edgy to be worn in an elegant manner, then think again!
Pair this tight braided ‘do with a set of dazzling droplet earrings, and you’ll be ready for any swanky soiree that comes your way!
Whether you decide to rock a high or low ponytail this season, just be sure to add some offbeat hair accessories to take your pony game to fashionable heights.
Rag curls and berets
There was a playful approach to hair on the Christian Dior PFW runway, with relaxed, lived-in rag curls and leather berets at the forefront.
Editor’s tip: Seal your waves with a generous spritz of the VO5 Wave Creation Hairspray.
Not only will its lightweight, ultra-brushable technology help you create sultry texture and bouncy waves, it also gives an invisible, workable hold that’ll last all day long!
Neon lights hair
Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake shocked the Parisian fashion pack (and us!), by sending models down the runway with metallic, neon light-inspired headbands.
But these weren’t just any old headbands, oh no: they were actually achieved with spray-on dyes! If you ask us, we reckon that this look is perfect for festival season.
Betty Boop hair
We always look forward to seeing which stylish vintage hairstyles will make an appearance on the runway, and this season was just as fun as ever.
Taking inspiration from the 1920s, models on the Anrealage runway rocked shiny deep side-parted, wet-look pixie cuts. So, if you want to make the most out of your short hair, make like these models and channel your inner Betty Boop.
