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?

Runway Hairstyles for Women to Try for Spring/Summer
1. Super Short Bob
This spring, give the traditional bob an update by going shorter. We’re talking ear-length, ladies!
2. Curly Hair and Bangs
Yet another way to wear a fringe on curly hair types. Embrace your natural hair for the spring season and add set of curly bangs to frame your face.
3. Layered Curls
Opt for a curly girl cut for the spring season. Ask your stylist for layers to give your ringlets some shape and movement.
4. Androgynous Pixie
Borrow a look from the boys and opt for a masculine cut. Have fun with the look by pairing up the crop with a cool undercut or fade to match.
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.
6. Two-Layer Bob
Proof that you don’t have to settle for one length when it comes to bob haircuts. Opt for two tiers instead.
7. Edgy Bowl Cut
Bowl and mushroom haircuts are back in a major way. Go for this shiny and defined layered look.
8. Crimped Ends
9. Undone Bob
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.
10. Wavy Bob
Get a bob that hits you right at the chin to accentuate your face shape, then add some lazy waves for body with a salt spray.
11. Wavy Shag
Since the shag is so nice, we added it twice! Here’s a cute way to style the look on wavy hair types.
