Hairspiration From London Fashion Week

It’s the week of London Fashion Week, when the fashion world comes together to paint a picture of what we are all going to be wearing in two season’s time. However, London Fashion Week (hereon known as LFW) isn’t just about the clothes, it’s also hugely focused on the make-up and the hair.  Guess which one of those two piques our interests?!  LFW might not even have closed, but here is our round-up of the hair-trends we think will be big for Autumn/Winter 2017.

Braided by day, free by night

The girls on the Supriya Lele catwalk donned textured waves which looked like they were the aftermath of a day spent in braids. The look was finished with Bumble and Bumble primer, a dewy mist in a bottle which helps finish the easy beachy hair look. Think tousled and free hair that has had fun all day; teased into undone (almost greasy) waves. The only curiosity was the fact that this summer look was on an AW catwalk. Intrigued? We certainly are!

Manga movement

Ryan Lo channelled Japanese ‘Hello Kitty’ inspired kitsch, with a ‘heart of Harajuku’ collection. Think uber short micro fringes, seemingly clipped on, with whiplashing bunches. The whole vibe was very Manga inspired, with massive bangs set to form thee fringe of 2017.

Sleek and chic

This one was doing the rounds on the runway during Spring/Summer, but it’s continuing to gather momentum during AW. Thakoon was spearheading the look with sleeked back side-quiffs, that are so loaded with gel that they look positively dripping.

Curly haired girls rule the world

We were ahead of the game when we proclaimed that curls were on the way up! After all, if LFW street style was to be surmised by just one style – curls would be it. Big, beautiful, bountiful and totally natural – curls are set to rule in 2017.

Yesteryear elegance

London Fashion Week

There is always a place for a spot of elegance, and what better way than in chic updo – as those shown on the Marchessa catwalk. The twist on these ‘dos is that they are super simple to create (think loose ponytails and buns) topped with exaggerated oversized velvet bows.

 Finish with a fish-tail

Christian Siriano’s collection was pure Ziggy Stardust, an electrifying clash of gold, silver, and bronze with a little bit of a Vamp feel. The only thing that reigned the whole look in from the realms of electric circus was the side fishtails which seemed a little bit more ‘Little House on the Prairie’ than Star Man. We aren’t dissing it, in fact we loved how the whole look served to show that a braid is never out of place.

Sculpt it

London Fashion Week

Hair totally stole the show at the Ben Gabbe unveil, in fact – you’d be hard pushed to remember the elegant clothes collection but you will defo recall the sleek knots and curls carefully crafted from chic ponytails. Especially when you see them crop up in time for Autumn this year. 

Seven trends we expect to be big by the time summer starts to fade. Remember, you read it here first!
