London Hairstyle Trends: Looks to Steal from The Runway

1. Sixties Sirens

Luckily for any retro lovers, ’60s style is set to stay. This time around however, it’s more than just the bangs. Models hit the runway rocking big, rounded afros and, of course, the classic half-updo. And if you really want to nail the finer details, don’t forget to curl your ends up for a flicked-out finish à la flipped hair style!

Get the Look: To build your own beehive hairstyle, you’re gonna need some volume for height. So, prep the hair with a body-boosting product like Dove Style+Care Volume Amplifier Mousse, which will help to build height from the roots for an anti-gravity effect.

2. Textured Styles

Designers are making the case for the ‘more is more’ approach when it came to their hairstyle of choice for the runway. The models’ massive, textured hair combined with waves is the way we like to get the best of both worlds. And let’s face it: Anything that lets us whip out our crimping tool is always a yes in our books.

Get the Look: To create your own textured hairstyle, create this look on second-day hair. Use your flat iron or crimper to create waves at the mid-section of your hair. Set with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to finish your style.

3. Statement Slides at Ashley Williams

Fashion Week hair isn’t always the most wearable, but here’s a trend train we can all get on board with: statement barrettes. Models were spotted with slogan clips in their hair that did all the talking.

Get the Look: Let your hair accessory be the center of attraction. Opt for using colors lighter to darker than your hair color to create contrast.

4. Vintage Waves

As classic as they are, unless it’s on the red carpet, the only time that ’20s finger waves are rarely seen these days unless it’s called for at a themed party. However, thanks to the hairstyles from the London runways, finger waves are back. To give the look a modern twist, pair it with a sleek low pony.

Editor’s tip: Confused about how to get the wavy effect to stay in place? Use Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel into this wavy shape.

5. Knot Braids

It wouldn’t be fashion month without a new braid trend, would it? Knotted braids are the new braids to have, and you heard it here first! Make it work for formal occasions by tying with a satin ribbon for that extra touch of femininity. If you looked up romantic hair in the dictionary this style would appear.

Get the Look: To give your braids that perfectly undone look, prep the hair with Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. This will give your strands more of a raw, gritty texture, which will help you as you’re braiding.
