Alyssa François | 01 September 2018

Stay ready with our hair trend predictions. 

New York Fashion Week Spring ’19 is right around the corner and since its in September, we are scouting fall hair trends. According to our street style hair trend forecast, we expect to see fresh new spins on some of our favorite hairstyles. Amongst many other places to seek inspiration, the street style scene is where we look for most of our fashion and beauty inspiration these days.

As we’re getting closer and closer to NYFW festivities, we thought it’d be cool to forecast hairstyle we think are going to grace the New York City pavements this season. Read on to see which hairstyles landed on our street style hair trend forecast:

1. Neat Braids

Whether it appears on or off the runway (maybe even both), we expect to see a braid or two at some point this season. We believe we’ll see less texture, and more of a polished finish to braided styles. You can score the look at home with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum.

2. Undone Hair

Unfinished hairstyles add a nice elevated and grungy feel to any look. This season we plan on seeing less defined spiraled raves and more lived-in textures. Backcombing your strands after styling is an easy way to achieve the look.

3. Shiny Hair

Since “glass hair” is a buzzword at the moment and all, we do expect to see some shiny heads out and about. Add shine to your style with the help of a lightweight shine spray like Bed Head By TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray.

4. Pinned Up Curls

For the summer season, many naturally curly gals opted for wash and go styles and big ‘fros. As the fall season approaches, cute pinned up curly styles seem to be the look of choice. Whether it’s pinning hair up into a frohawk, or using bobby pins to accessorize your curls.

5. Bobs

In case you haven’t noticed, the classic bob haircut is making a massive comeback after its sister style, the lob took over for a bit. Women are going for sharp, blunt cuts as opposed to asymmetrical looks.

6. Blue Hair

As we transition into autumnal hues, shades of blue like navy are one of the key hues of the season. However, when it comes to hair, don’t be afraid to play around with lighter hues during the fall season.
