Fashion Week’s hair trends

15 Sep

As London Fashion Week gets started it’s a chance to see how high fashion thinks we should be styling ourselves for the coming months. Stripped back looks, plenty of texture and unusual ways to wear topknots, we’ve already had a hint of what’s to come from New York Fashion Week.

Here are the top hair looks we spotted at Dream Girl.

The low loop

Low ponytails have been popular with the fashion brigade for the past year, and we saw them on catwalks this time last year too. At Victoria Beckham’s New York show, the long low ponytail gets a 2018 twist. A loop in the ponytail just adds a little bit more shape and curiosity to the style. For those who need a little added length, a ponytail hair extension will help recreate this style.

The Half Up-Do

Match this style with a crisp white t shirt and you will have mastered the VB signature style for next spring. A slightly more sophisticated look for the half up do, it keeps the hair’s natural shape and lift, without looking too done. It couldn’t be easier to recreate, either. Just take sections of hair from the side temples and just behind the ears. Tie together low, only just above the nape of the neck. Hair extensions will help add a little extra length, or volume at the crown so the style doesn’t fall flat.

Is it a braid, is it a ponytail? At Fenty x Puma, this long ponytail had an intricate twist to bring it bang up to date. Start by adding a side parting and slick hair with serum. Gather into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Take a section of the hair and plait tightly. Secure at the ends. Plait the ponytail, using this braid so that you can see the plait as it weaves and folds underneath the sections. Tie at the bottom. You’ll need lots of hair for this so clip on hair extensions will help bulk out fine hair.

The new bun

At Badgley Mischka the ballerina bun gets a very modern twist, and it’s perfect for anytime of day. Slightly dishevelled, but just enough, start with dry hair and do a little back combing at the crown to add lift. Put the front into a middle parting. Take sections of the hair and pin back to the nape of the neck – tying into a ponytail will reduce the lift and make it look too uniform. Take the ponytail lengths and twist and pin into a bun. A few strands that fall out won’t matter.
