11 More Hair Ideas for Women to Steal from the F/W 17 Runway

Go runway to real way with our guide to the best trends now.

Here’s the thing about New York Fashion Week: We’re seeing all of the fashion and beauty trends that will be a hit for future seasons, usually six months in advance. However, many of us don’t have the patience to wait until these trends hit the racks at our favorite stores, which is part of the reason designers have adapted the “see now, by now” concept at their shows. In that same vein, hair pros are also giving tips on how to get these much-buzzed-about runway looks at home, and don’t necessarily expect you to wait six months before trying out these latest hairstyles.

We’ve seen many hair trends that can absolutely be worn right this minute. To wit: Thanks to salt spray, we don’t have to wait until summer to get messy, beachy hair waves, so why wait to try anything else? Short haircuts on a variety of textures dominated the F/W 2017 runways during NYFW, and we’re all about staying ahead of the curve! What better time than now to take cues from the runway to inspire your new look for spring? Read on as we round up the top short hair ideas for women to bring to their stylists during their next haircut appointment. Ready for yours? Scroll through to find some short-haired inspiration for your look for the new season:

5. Fine Hair Shag

What we love most about shags is that they work for any hair texture. Update your fine hair for spring with this mussed-up iteration.

8. Crimped Ends

Want to amp up that lob you got last year? Crimp those ends. Go for the “sleek roots with a bushy tail” look, as it helps give the ability to try two trends at once: The wet hair look and the crimp.

According to the red carpet, a creating a side part is the best way to do your hair. Ask your stylist for a layered bob, then flip it over to the side using your fingers to recreate this runway look.
