Hair is really having a moment this year. Kim Kardashian’s sleek, summer bob and Beyonce’s flawlessly beachy waves at Coachella were particularly headline-worthy. We were presented with gravity defying hair at F/W 2018 shows, celebrating the 80s continued influence and the undeniable return of hairspray! From the ever versatile bun to breezy waves and short bobs, a clear trend leader was difficult to pinpoint. But do not worry because our edit from the season has all the answers you need:
Choppy & punk fringes
Sixties punk met Andy Warhol bringing us choppy fringes this season. Bella Hadid nailed the look at Jason Wu’s show this fall and we can’t wait to try it!
The go-to option for an evening out, the top knot is almost always on trend. It is also perfect for autumn, complementing that oversized sweater for a cosy night by the fire.
The middle parting, a la Emily Dickinson and 18th century portraits, is back on trend! There's no taking sides with this craze, sported by Saoirse Ronan at the Oscars. Use a thin comb and plenty of good lighting to pull off this look. Pair it with a fringe or a bob to channel multiple trends in one snapshot.
Spotted at the Tommy Hilfiger show, crimping made a comeback with texture becoming the season’s biggest sensation. Add volume and let your hair feel fall’s breeze.
While Beyonce flaunted a cascade of waves fluttering in the breeze, waves also came with a wet look this season. Celebrity hairstylist Kristin Ess recommends a high-gloss pomade to style it at home.
The super slick ponytail or bun complements the structure and leather staples showcased during fashion’s reckoning with the #MeToo movement. Do not discount its minimalist flair as you move from your home to the boardroom without a hair out of place!
