It may be some time before we can get our hands on the autumn/winter 2019 runway fashions, but the season’s beauty trends are ours to trial now. Like any fashion month, there were plenty of beautiful moments that read ‘best left to the models’—Gucci’s supernatural contact lenses and Junya Watanabe’s cartoon-length lashes won’t translate chic until Halloween—but when it came to wearable hairstyles, this season delivered.
From New York to Paris, catwalks presented a plethora of new hair trends loaded with runway-to-real-life appeal. Ornate hair accessories were seen everywhere from Simone Rocha to Fashion East, much to the delight of every lazy beauty girl looking for a fast way to dial up her undone lengths. And for those seeking a style that’s as practical as it is pretty, there were updo updates aplenty thanks to the season’s love for ponytails and braids.
Call up 12-year-old you because the hair clip trend is officially back. From the catwalks to the streets, hair accessories were one of fashion month’s biggest takeaways. Thankfully, the 2019 spin on the beauty trend is much chicer than it was circa year five. At Versace, hot-weather hair was messily scraped back and clipped with metallic barrettes behind the ears of models such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. At the same time, things were kept classic at Chanel with pearl-emblazoned pendants adding a ladylike feel to tousled half-updos. It’s good news for those short on time: pretty clips can instantly dress up morning-after hair, gripping best in three-day-old blowdry.
‘Scandi blonde’ hair is having a high-fashion moment. Blame supermodels Cara Delevingne and Sasha Luss, or even Daenerys Targaryen, but the ‘white’ blonde look is this season’s hottest hair coloring. At Agnona and Lanvin, the icy shade was worn down with super-slick shine. The coloring was also seen at Prada and Rocha’s, with models securing their pearl-white lengths in neat, low-sitting buns and ponytails.
Devoid of yellow or ash tones, ‘Scandi Blonde’ can be a tricky tone to maintain. When getting the look, take the process slow to maintain hair integrity and always treat your hair with a purple shampoo to correct brassy tones. Glow Lab’s silicon and paraben-free Purple Shampoo comes to Keratin, Betaine, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E-enriched, meaning it will leave hair stronger and healthier, as well as take care of any unwanted undertones. Use it with the brand’s Purple Conditioner for vibrant blonde hair with longevity and runway-level shine. Side bonus: it won’t leave your hair feeling strawy (win).
