At Chanel, the ubiquitous messy bun was taken up several notches. The typical lazy-girl hairstyle was given a luxurious twist, with models’ hair twisted up in a top-knot – the higher and the bigger the bun, the better. Whether paired with stylish shades, or oversized earrings, the hairstyle exuded an effortlessly cool vibe.
To achieve the look, renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight heavily teased the models’ hair to give it some texture, while leaving the crown smooth. We reckon this is one of the looks that can be easily re-created, simply with some bobby pins, a teasing comb, hairbands and a strong-hold hairspray.
Add a cherry on top by finishing off with a statement hair accessory – at Chanel, models sported pretty flower hair clips, or the iconic double C, but you can adorn your bun with whatever you like.
For some sophisticated inspiration, look no further than Fendi, where McKnight once again worked his magic. Whether it’s with a deep middle or side part, models’ tresses were all perfectly polished, with not a single flyaway strand in sight.
Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to get the look, according to McKnight’s Instagram: 1) Blow dry hair until smooth 2) Place a clean or side parting 3) Smooth large sections of hair through 38mm curling irons and roll up from the ends 4) Brush smooth 5) Use hairspray in fine layers from behind the ear up to the partings on both sides 6) Smooth flat with a soft brush. Don’t forget to tuck everything behind your ears!
#3: Miu Miu
The classic 60s beehive hairstyle was taken to a whole new level at Miu Miu. Lead hairstylist Guido Palau envisioned a kind of ‘bad girl’ hair, where a timeless shape was done up with a raw texture for a slight rebel feel.
Lots of raw texture was needed to be able to tease and back brush models’ hair, hence, several products were used – Redken’s Guts 10, a volume spray foam to lift the roots; Redken’s Wind Blown 05, a volumising and texturizing dry finishing hairspray for a windswept effect; and lastly, Redken’s Forceful 23 Hairspray, an anti-frizz strong-hold to keep the hairstyle in place.
If a full-on beehive is too much for you, go for a slightly less dramatic version by making a simple back tease, or just sweep your hair back for a casual cool look.
If the above are all not up your alley, how about some messy and textured bangs for that timeless, punky, rock-and-roll vibe?
Alright, this is a bit of cheating – at Moschino, models wore wigs, similar to at Jeremy Scott’s New York show. Inspired by Jackie Kennedy’s signature 60’s hairstyle, the wigs complemented the mod 60s feel of the collection.
All the wigs were matched to each individual model’s actual hair colour, and were sometimes topped with ultra-chic berets, or paired with thick-framed shades.
We imagine that this hairstyle can be replicated with some effort, if you have the right skills and tools – if not, where’s the harm in donning a wig now and then?
#5: Noir Kei Ninomiya
Comme des Garçons’s Rei Kawakubo’s protege Noir Kei Ninomiya staged his first ever full show this season, and did not disappoint. Models were sent down the runway with extravagant and beautiful floral masks and headpieces designed by Japanese floral artist Makoto Azuma.
These dramatic and eye-catching headdresses are perfect for a garden party, if you want to stand out from the crowd.
If an excess of florals and greenery in your hair is not your thing, try out the pretty braids that models rocked – whether for a casual weekend outing or an elegant evening party, we’re sure this hairstyle will elicit admirations everywhere.
#6: Tommy Hilfiger
For the ultimate cool-girl look, take inspiration from all American label, Tommy Hilfiger. Models were sent down the runway in beachy, effortless and relaxed tresses with tiny braids woven in. Head hairstylist Eugene Souleiman summed up the hairstyle as “modern”, but “done with haste” so it “still appears styled but natural”.
To recreate the look, first prep your hair with a salt spray and lifting spray to add texture. Next, roll up your hair into two soft side buns and diffuse with a hairdryer. Then, unravel your buns and use a dry shampoo for volume, before adding in a loose curl. To achieve a more natural vibe, wrap your hair around your curling tong as usual, but when taking the hair away, stretch it out so it’s more of an ‘S’ curl. This gives it a more modern, carefree style that’s structured but still relaxed.
