New York fashion Week is only one of the biggest beauty and fashion events of the year, where the most highly acclaimed and emerging designers come together in an open and diverse space to showcase their looks to the world.
The NYFW looks are typically known for being wild and outrageous, but here are 12 hair looks which you could rock any day of the week
The coloured pony puts a spin on the regular outdated sleek pony. By adding a simple streak of colour to the hair, the look becomes more exciting and slightly edgy without being too much or too noticeable.
The warrior twist differs from your regular braided pony. It is just a simple two strand twist that looks a lot more complicated than it is. This hairstyle will give you a sleek sophisticated look, and will differ depending on the tightness twists, and the style you are trying to achieve. It will seem as though you’ve spent hours on your hair, when in reality, it only took you 2 minutes.
Another simple twisted look is the Victorian twist. This look will frame your face and give your cheekbones more structure, by tackling only the front pieces of hair to reveal and accentuate the face. Simply grab two strands on either side of the head and twist backwards, securing with a bobby pin or clip.
The baby bang is an edgier yet soft look, however still completely wearable for everyday. Those that want to delve into a more alternative look and change up their style, should consider the baby bang. Bringing back the 1950s era, these bangs will sit about 1-2cm above the eyebrow. Still need help visualising? Think of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.
Often seen as the lazy girl’s ponytail, this hairstyle requires little to no effort. Simply comb through styled hair, grab your hair tie and loosely tie the back of your hair together, leaving the hair covering your ears. This look is quick and simple, perfect for those that wish to elongate the face.
Similar to the coloured pony, the ribbon braid is an alternative to a regular braid. By adding a strand of printed or coloured ribbon to the sequence of the braid, the hair transforms into a statement piece of the overall look.
It seems so simple, but the “au naturel” look was popular at this year’s NYFW. Designers embraced the model’s natural beachy waves and frizzy looks which naturally complemented the designers distinct looks. So simple, yet teaches everyone to love and respect their natural hair wave and texture.
Subtle and simple, relaxed waves can be worn on a daily basis and incorporated into any style or look. As the name suggests, this hairstyle gives off a relaxed appearance, and will accentuate any outfit. Simply run your curling iron or straightener through the hair quickly on a low setting to achieve this natural look.
Not typically considered a hair accessory, this year’s NYFW showcased hair pearls, to give the hair a delicate yet fun look. Placed on subtle wavy hair, these pearls give the hair even more shine, as well as bringing something different to the look. This particular style could be worn on an everyday basis, but would be best suited for occasion wear.
This look has been a growing trend for the past few years. To achieve the look, simply secure the top half of the hair into a bun or pony, leaving the remainder of the hair out and styled. With this look you can have the best of both worlds, with the comfort of an updo but the glamour of your hair down and flowing.
The wet hair look has been spotted prior to NYFW on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid, however, the looks spotted on the runway showcase a more subtle wet hair look perfect for everyday wear. To achieve the look simply dampen hair, apply gel on the entirety of hair and comb through.
These eye-catching braids are the perfect everyday look if you want to keep your hair out of your face. They are extremely low maintenance, and can last in perfect condition for up to a week.
