Paris Fashion Week is officially over for yet another season (too soon, if you ask us!). And as you might have expected, we’ve been keeping an eye out for the best hairstyles from the ever-chic fashion capital – and boy-oh-boy were there some stunners! But it’s not just the designers who have impressed the crowds…
An abundance of fashionistas descended on the city, with hairstyles even more head-turning than their outfits. So, to round up fashion month in true All Things Hair style, here are our street style hair hits from Paris.
There is no denying that some of the hairstyles at fashion week can be a tad tricky to wear IRL. So when we spotted this super easy half-up, half-down ponytail, we knew we were onto a winner!
This half-up style is perfect for casual weekends binge-watching Dirty John on the sofa. And with the right hair accessories, you can even give this easy updo a glam makeover for date-night.
One thing is for sure, bobs are the It haircut for FW19 and to be honest, we couldn’t be happier!
It was out with the effortlessly tousled waves and long bobs and in with super straight blunt cuts that hit the jawline. For ultimate style points wear your new cut with an on-trend headband like fashion influencer Brittany Xavier.
Editor’s tip: Whether you’re blow-drying or using a straightener to achieve poker straight strands, be sure to use a heat protect spray.
We love the keratin infused TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray for helping to tame frizz and prevent damage.
Deep side parting
We know how committed you are to your centre parting, but with a new fashion season, we think it’s time for a shakeup.
Opt for a deep side parting and unlock the new and exciting hair possibilities this new style will give you.
We saw them in every fashion capital, so it came as no surprise that the streets of Paris were filled with fashionable women finishing off their oh-so-chic looks with stand out headbands.
Just ask Camila Coelho who teamed her glossy brown hair with a satin pink headband and summer ready floral outfit.
It was love at first sight when we spotted this wavy hairstyle in Paris. It’s the perfect look for hot summer days, whether you’re in the city or sipping cocktails by the pool.
Did we mention you can get this wavy hairstyle without heat too? Braid your hair before bed and the following morning when you let your braids loose you’ll be left with natural-looking soft waves.
Editor’s tip: Give your tresses an extra wave boost with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. Use before braiding for added grip and tousled texture.
SS19 street style moments
Fringes have slowly been making their way into the mainstream for a few seasons now. It started with grown-out bangs and split Bardot styles, but this season we noticed an abundance of full, straight across fringes among the street style elite.
If you’re still yet to join the bangs gang, by this point resistance is futile!
Tied around the head or worn as headbands, they may have had an update but they’ve still feel totally retro.
Diana Ross curls
What’s new for curls in SS19? These co-ordinating street stylers are serving up all the curl-spo we need with their ’70s-inspired Diana Ross curls. Big and full of volume, these bouncy disco curls could stop traffic.
Editor’s tip: Lacking definition? To keep curls in check we recommend using the TONI&GUY Curl Sculpting Spray, a spray gel formula which helps with definition and frizz prevention for beautiful, defined curls.
Paris is obviously known for its berets (and don’t worry, there were plenty of those around), but there was another hat style creeping up on every corner – the bucket hat.
Fashion week attendees got creative with their hats, threading ribbon (designer, of course) through the eyelets for extra #fashun points.
Slick back hair
Gelled, slick back hair is a trend that started out on the runways but has filtered down onto the streets – and it’s more wearable than you think.
Editor’s tip: The key to creating the slick back look is to be frugal with the hair gel, adding a little each time to avoid overloading your hair with product.
If you’re not used to using gel, the VO5 Mega Hold Gel Spray is a good one to try as it comes out as a light spray, so it’s almost impossible to overdo it.
The key to rocking short hair like a true French girl? Texture, texture, texture. We’re all over this elfin Audrey Tautou-inspired crop with its tousled texture and chic Parisian vibes.
Now see how the street stylers styled it out in previous seasons…
Style throwback: The best Parisian street style from AW18
Razor sharp bobs
Box braids are a naturalista’s BFF but don’t let this style’s protective benefits take away from the fun you can have with them.
For a long time there has been this misconception that curly-haired ladies can’t rock short hair, but let us turn your attention to exhibit A, above.
Thanks to curly-haired models like Victoria’s Secret model Alanna Arrington and the rise in naturalista influencers, more girls are embracing the curly bob combo, proving that you don’t have to choose between one or the other.
Blow out hair
We love a good blow out whatever the season, but it’s always nice to see our favourite looks getting the fash-pack seal of approval.
We noted several bloggers and industry types rocking fresh, bouncy blow out hair and flicked-under ends, and it just added that extra touch of class to their outfits.
Editor’s tip: To maintain your just-out-the-salon blow out, scrunch a volume-plumping mousse through damp hair before styling.
We particularly like the VO5 Big Volume Mousse as this soft, weightless mousse will help to add body for extra height and bounce – no-one will suspect it’s not a salon job!
Bobby pin designs
With that said, though, until now it hasn’t really filtered down to everyone else. We love this stylista’s bobby pin faux undercut style because while it’s punky, it’s not totally unwearable.
Sixties wrap headbands
You only need to look at the Moschino and Dior shows to see how much inspiration designers are drawing from the ’60s era – and this rang true outside the shows, too.
While bouffants and Jackie O hair might not be for everyone, these Bardot-style wrap headbands are undeniably, universally chic.
Our favourite street hairstyles from past PFW seasons
Blunt bobs have been in vogue for years, and have been sported by a number of fashion icons – like Anna Wintour – and celebrities, like Taylor Swift, as well as numerous runway models. But now, we’re seeing even more of them off the catwalks and we couldn’t be happier.
So, if you’re after a bold fashion statement, why not opt for a chin-grazing bob with a blunt fringe that rests just above your eyebrows?
No longer reserved for those lazy days indoors, messy buns have become a staple hairstyle for fashionistas worldwide. But the best thing is that they go with practically any outfit, from super casual to tailored and polished, so they’re universally flattering.
For a look that screams sophistication and oozes fashion editor cool, leave the ends of your hair tucked into your shirt, jumper or coat, letting the middle section spill out like a faux bob!
Not only does this style look chic, it’s also extremely low-maintenance and it couldn’t be easier to do. Win-win!
Tip: If you do dye your hair, don’t forget to swap your normal shampoo and conditioning duo for one specifically designed for coloured hair.
