New York Fashion Week served up many things, and one of those things was epic hair. Here, a look at our favourite, scene-stealing hair moments from the runways of New York City to inspire your next hairstyle – boardroom to bar and beyond.
The Wet Chignon
Backstage at Naeem Khan, Odile Gilbert said the hair was to look oily “like a mirror,” as she created an uber wet look on model manes – so much so, you could almost see your own reflection in their shiny hair. It was glossy brilliance with an uber shiny finish on top, whilst at the back, the chignon was reimagined with a fresh modernity.
Hair was deeply side-parted and pulled back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, then twisted, wrapped around the hair tie and fastened with French pins multiple times, then followed with a copious spritz of TRESemmè Extra Hold Hairspray. And her top trick for a flawless finish? “Apply gel to the roots and brush through to the tips, followed by a fine tooth comb to secure any fly aways.”

The Patchwork Pin
Of course, there’s plenty to be said of hair accessories at the moment, and at Nonie, they hit an all-time, artsy high. Led by TRESemmè Hair Director Justine Marjan, the look was one of the coolest to hit the runway; tough, pretty and gritty – all in one.
Marjan prepped the hair with TRESemmè Repair & Protect Pre-Styling Spray, essential for smooth, silky strands. She then pulled the hair into a low ponytail – leaving out romantic tuffs of cool-girl tendrils – then affixed a series of hair ties down the pony, almost like a bubble effect. But the real star was the strategic placement of bobby pins, which were criss-crossed and clustered to perfection, adding an artful element to the hair, which too, was stellar.

the braided birkin
Odile Gilbert channelled a ’60s Jane Birkin for the Jonathan Simkhai show. Irreverent, French-girl hair was given a suitably sweet addition, however; tiny, twisted plaits which were braided at random intervals throughout the hair, and finished with delicate wooden beads.
For the boho chic look, texture was keynote, and TRESemmè Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo was spritzed generously throughout the hair. “To achieve this chic and bohemian look, be sure to give the hair texture at the roots. That’s how you get the ’60’s boho feel,” explains Gilbert. C’est bon.
