International fashion weeks are vital for showcasing the best in fashion, hair and makeup and revealing up and coming trends. New York Fashion Week saw its most diverse season yet in terms of race, size, and age, with Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show featuring lingerie-wearing models of all sizes and races, two of which were pregnant.
Victoria Beckham showed her first collection at London Fashion Week, ten years after the launch of her label which was originally shown in New York.
In Paris, Cardi B made her Paris Fashion Week debut in a show-stopping vintage Michael Costello look.
Following the wrap up of Spring fashion week across the globe some key hair trends have emerged. While they may look incredible, these styles can be easily interpreted and achieved at home. VS Sassoon’s hair expert Michael Brown has some short step by step instructions on how to recreate the four hottest looks, right from the comfort of your own home.
In Milan and London, the very chic style of slicked-back hair was a hot trend. Designers such as Burberry, Victoria Beckham, and Missoni are LOVING this look, which shows off your facial features and gives an overall edgy vibe. Roberto Cavalli similarly focused on a wet-look elevation of roots with textured lengths.
This modern style is especially useful when fixing a bad hair day and is easily achievable. There are multiple ways to wear the trend - part to one side to add a chic element to your look or slick it back completely as if you’ve just come out of the ocean and worked your hands back over your head.
Hair expert Michael Brown recommends using hair styling tools that have a digital sensor for ultimate hair protection heat and also for the best smooth frizz-free results.
Another hot trend seen in September’s international fashion shows was the tousled, natural look. Chanel, Etro, Alberta Ferretti and Coach were among the designers going for movement and natural bend in their model’s hairstyles. This slightly wind-blown style has quickly become a requested go-to for hair stylists, as it gives definition and volume without that overstyled “pageant” hair, that can seem like you’ve been doing your hair for hours.
Michael Brown reveals that these relaxed and textured styles that are on trend are great for when you have bed hair, but for some it takes a bit of effort to make their hair look this effortless.
Soft, brushed out waves? GREAT. Overly done, un-brushed pageant curls? NOT GREAT. Another catwalk trend that we saw in London, Paris and at Nicole Miller’s amazing New York show was curls but in a textured, ‘cool girl’ look: half brushed out, but still showing tight curls.
Expert Tip: If you have natural curls, then you can easily enhance them and achieve this look by using the diffuser on your hairdryer.
Fashion Week models including Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber and the Hadid sisters, Bella and Gigi, showed us the beauty of a fashion top knot at the Fendi runway show in Milan. This style is super convenient, providing a quick fix and keeping hair out of the face. Win! Top knots have been a go-to for a while, but those wanting a slightly cooler look can add some jazz to their up-do.
Whoever said runway looks are unachievable? Use these tips from hair expert Michael Brown and the newest innovations from leaders in hair technology to create these styles without having to pay the big bucks. Go forth and conquer!
