Hair Trends from Fashion Week S/S20

From the wearable to the wonderfully eccentric, Fashion Week SS20 has descended and it’s bursting with fresh hair-spiration. 

A hotbed of creativity, the hair trends emerging for Spring/Summer ‘20 blend convenience with a high-octane dose of sparkle. Drawing inspiration from eras of the past, a princess and hair accessories, this season showcases perennial favourites, like the messy bun hairpiece, alongside some statement making styles (we’re looking at you Jeremy Scott).

Stay up to date with all of the latest hair trends fresh from the catwalk with our trend report. 

Deep Side Partings

Spotted on the runway at Michael Kors and Jason Wu, the deep side parting is one of the most wearable trends to emerge from New York Fashion Week. Sleek, glossy and secured behind the ear with grips, this look gives everyday hair a high-fashion twist.

Brushed Out Curls

Channelling 70s boho vibes, Oscar De La Renta, Cynthia Rowley and Zimmerman were just some of the designers that showcased cascading curls for the upcoming season. While each designer had their own take on waves, all had an effortlessly feminine brushed-out quality. 

In a departure from sleek uniform curls, this trend embraces volume, movement and free-spirited flyaways. To recreate this look at home, clip in our  Curly One Piece, which blends beautifully with your natural hair and can be brushed out for a softer, designer-inspired look.

Bold and Bright

Jeremy Scott brought fun and fearless colour to the catwalk with bright wigs that boasted modern mullets and gravity-defying volume. Created by hair stylistEugene Souleiman, these show-stopping styles exuded fun club-kid vibes with choppy cuts, blunt fringes and backcombed crowns. While they might not be everyday appropriate, you can expect to see their bright shades diluted down for a more wearable wash of colour off the catwalk.

Wet Look Hair

Wet look hair continues to be a Fashion Week mainstay. Spotted at Carolina Herrera and Proenza Schouler, models sported slicked back roots that looked as if they’d been playing poolside just moments earlier. Left down or pulled back into a sleek updo, this powerful look proves far more versatile than you might first think.

80s Inspiration

The 80s revival has been in full swing for a while and this season is no exception. It dominated the catwalk at Tom Ford, where models pounded the runway sporting spiky punk updos that were filled with texture and attitude. Meanwhile, at Tory Burch the approach was ladylike and refined, with Princess Diana-inspired coifs and hair combs. With such a versatile range of hairstyles giving a nod to the decade, the one rule to abide by is: bigger is better.

Eye-Catching Embellishment

With hair accessories more popular than ever, it’s no surprise Fashion Week SS20 was packed full of sparkles. Khait’s models were dripping in strings of diamantes and pearls, while Alice + Olivia added a smattering of pretty pearl stickers atop long braids. On the street, the fashion set translated the trend effortlessly; wearing an array of embellished headbands and clips that further affirmed pretty hair accessories are here to stay.

Messy Buns

Nothing says low-key luxe like a messy bun. A totally relatable style, the nonchalant bun was popular at Nicole Miller, with hair pulled down around the face to create an authentic ‘I woke up like this’ vibe. Similarly,Rebecca Minkoff opted for textured messy buns that allowed face-framing layers to fall loose. The perfect style for non-wash hair days, use our curly scrunchie to create a quick, carefree bun that’s full of volume and style.

Hair Scarves

Twisted into plaits or wrapped around ponytails; scarves are big news next season. Jonathan Cohen had his models’ long hair plaited and entwined with bold patterned scarves, while Rag & Bone gave an added flourish to updos with a simple scarf tie at the top of a ponytail. Paisley patterned bandanas or luxe silk, the key is to get creative.
