In a nutshell, the Saint Laurent SS17 show proved that short afro hairstyles are back and have been given the official seal of approval by the fashion deities! We know, short afro hairstyles have always been a key hair contender in the style stakes, but we were still super excited to see them grace the chic runways of Paris Fashion Week.
So, to get the lowdown on these edgy new ‘dos, click through our gallery above or scroll down to see the looks set to be hot for next summer!
Saint Laurent's embraces the afro on the SS17 runway
The blonde buzz
Jourdana Phillips totally stole the show on the Saint Laurent catwalk with her bold, blonde buzz cut. The ballsy model lobbed off her medium-length, natural hair, before bleaching it into a new short barnet – all in the name of fashion, of course!
The Grace Jones-inspired ‘do
It’s time to do your best impression of Grace Jones and start working your ’80s-inspired high top fade! If you didn’t know that this retro look was this season’s hottest hair trend, then you must have been living under a rock.
We started to see big and boxy afro hairstyles bubble up during the autumn/winter 2016 fashion shows, and we’re glad to say that it’s still set to be big for SS17, too!
The subtle high top fade
Are geometric cuts a little too ‘out-there’ for you? Don’t worry, because the Saint Laurent SS17 show presented us with an alternative look, with a subtle high top fade!
This cut has less dramatic height, and is rounded off at the top, for a perfectly chic and effortless finish.
