London Fashion Week is coming to an end (sob). And while we’ve loved all the wild and beautiful looks from runways, the truth is they’re not always so wearable IRL. The solution? To take hair notes from the street style stars who flock to this star-studded event, of course!
Keep on scrolling to see the street style hair we’re obsessing over and start thinking about how you can incorporate them into your life…
LFW FW19: Street style hairstyles to wear IRL
1. Statement hair clips
It may only be the first fashion season of the year but we’re calling it, 2019 will be marked by statement hair clips!
Wear yours clipped at the temple with soft waves or under a high bun.
2. Double braids
We know what you’re thinking, boxer braids are so last season, right? But this season it’s all about upgrading your weaving skills with not one but two weaving patterns.
This dark haired beauty started with a Dutch braid before switching to a fishtail style to finish off her boxer braids ‘do.
Editor’s tip: Make braiding your hair easy by using TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm.
The perfect on the go companion and handbag must-have, this braid balm gives hair added structure and flexible hold when styling.
3. Hair tuck
So simple we wonder why we haven’t always been doing this clever hair hack.
From the runway to the high street, it’ll be hard not to spot this trend. Yes, we’re talking about headbands.
Wondering what to look out for when it comes to this LFW trend? Look for bold hues and satin fabrics and wear yours with unpolished styles like a messy updo or air-dried hair, basically, minimal styling required!
5. Half-up bun
Half-up, half-up down buns have served us well. It’s often our go-to style when we’re rushing out of the door or half-way through a workday, so to see the style at fashion week feels like a win for us.
6. Glass hair
Beauty lovers may already be familiar with the glass skin trend but now it’s the turn of glass hair.
So what exactly is glass hair? High shine tresses with precise cuts are the hallmarks of this trend.
Editor’s tip: To achieve this high gloss finish, reach for TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops.
Work 2-3 pumps between fingers and smooth through dry hair to tame frizz and give a glossy high shine finish.
7. Pink hues
If there was one colour to be spotted wearing at LFW it was most definitely pink. We spotted everything from highlighter hues to this more subtle (and let’s be honest, more wearable) muted shade in the fashion capital.
We love how this stylish babe paired her neutral outfit with a pop of pink hair colour for a modern take on a ’70s-inspired look.
8. Hair pendant
We’ve seen throwback styles likes snap clips and even ’90s bucket hats make a strong comeback but hair jewellery we have to admit is new to us.
Using a jewelled pendant attached to a strip of ribbon is not only creative, it instantly makes this otherwise undone style look more fun and purposeful.
9. ’90s style
With grey skies looming, this style is not only practical for rainy days but it’s also become one of the hottest styles to wear according to the fashionistas.
From ’90s bucket to OTT fisherman, hats are this season’s most practical way to protect your mane.

The best hairstyles from LFW AW18
1. Wispy fringe
Barely there, wispy bangs (the current splash on the red carpet and Instagram) have officially made their way to the streets of London, and it’s easy to see why.
They’re romantic, beginner-friendly, low-maintenance and the ultimate look to pair with a beret.

If you love experimenting with different hair colours, you’ll be happy to know that LFW was a real playing ground for showcasing this season’s most wanted hues. The two colours, in particular, were pastel pink and lilac.

The best hairstyles from London Fashion Week 2017
1. The sleek crop
There’s no doubt that pixie crops will always remain stylish, but we were especially drawn to the way that this Fashion Week attendee styled her ‘do.
As you can see, her relaxed hair has been slicked back for a sophisticated and casual effect.
Editor’s tip: To get this bold look, use some of the VO5 Mega Hold Gel Spray onto your dry or damp hair, before brushing all your strands back. Then, add another few pumps after styling to keep your hair looking slick, shiny, and smooth, all day long.
2. The side ponytail
If you’re addicted to your ponytail and want to stylishly switch things up, upgrade this hairstyle staple to the next logical look: the side pony.
Seriously, it’s amazing how making such a small change can impact your overall look! And the best thing about this ‘do, is that you can to take it up another notch, by adding some romantic soft waves in it à la Jonathan Simkhai, or just keep it sleek and sexy.
3. The big afro
Lucky enough to have a bold and beautiful afro hairstyle? To make the most out of it this season, really fluff it out, like this street style maven has done. The bigger hair, the better the style impact, right?
4. The bob
This year’s featured cut has been short, sophisticated, and surprisingly low maintenance. And, with every celebrity swapping up their long locks for a bob haircut (we’re looking at you Katy Perry and Caroline Flack!), now’s a great time to take the plunge.
5. Denim hair
Seeing as denim and hygge hair is set to be one of the hottest hair colour trends for 2017, you really can’t go wrong with trying it out. So, if you truly want to be ahead of the fashion pack, you know what to do!
