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! 

If you are local, and this trend is for you, pop by to Sixth Sense Salon (your number one hair salon sutton coldfield) to learn more about how to get this look.

Hair Trends Right From The Runway

Hair Trends

You’d have to have been residing on Mars to not know that September was the month of fashion. New York, Paris, London AND Madrid all played hosts to the fashion houses and their crew of muses and models who were there to educate us all on the potential of Spring Summer 2017. While most of the world was watching for the must-have clothing colour (Mango, by the way – thanks to Versace) or the must-have heel (8cm HIGH heels, Chloe – natch) we only had our eyes on one thing – the hair.

Here is our round-up of the best hairstyles straight from the runway, set to dominate your Instagram feed as early as Christmas. No thanks needed.

The 80s Power Blow Dry

The Princess Di cut is back, but not quite as we know it. Instead of undergoing a chop, this look is recreated with thick fringes and concealed ponytailing. At Phillip Lim, models donned ponytails right in their neckline (which you couldn’t see from the front) while all volume went into some bouffant fringing. The stylist behind the fashion house, Paul Hanlon, said that the look was less power-house 9-5 glam and more “end of night” – “You get the feeling that this hair was once set and its kind of fallen out at the end of the night”.


Surf’s Up

The epitome of summer is easy, undone surfer locks so we really just had to sit back and see which house interpreted it first – as it happens, it was Alexander Wang in New York. The hair-colour on the catwalks was yellow bleached blonde, if you were a child of the 1990s and ever had a run in with ‘sun-in’ you’ll go some way to imagining the shade. As for styling, it’s all about the sea-sprays and the chalky pastes which work to add some texture for a totally undone, care-free style.

Sleek and Polished

When one camp yells “Surf’s Up” the other yells “straighteners NOW” and it was over at Victoria Beckham that they were working hard to portray a chic and timeless vibe. Models had long hair, which was poker straight, one-length and centre parted, and intriguingly tucked behind the ears. Don’t be fooled by the simplistic, hair that glam needs more help than you’d think with continual conditioning to keep the shine. However, the finished look is pretty epic – timeless and almost ethereal.

The Ballerina Bun

The messy bun really has had its day, having been on a continual loop for several years now. All hail the Ballerina Bun! An interpretation of a bun which is just as easy as it’s messy sister but much chicer and polished for a style that takes you from easy Sunday afternoons, right into a boardroom. The models at fashion house Pamella Roland had buns that were as easy as a pony-tail and a circular wind round. The finishing touch was a good styling cream that worked to add gloss and shine.

Without wishing winter away, the team are pretty excited to see these four hair trends become mainstream – we’ve been arguing about our favourite all week (I’m for the Surf’s Up, by the way). We’ll see you in the salon for these styles SOON – we promise.
