Our Favorite Hair Styles from the Fall/Winter Runways

Towering braid sculptures, hair taxidermy, faux dreadlocks—okay, runway hair isn’t exactly known for being user-friendly. However, the fall/winter 2016-17 season featured an abundance of gorgeous styles that don’t require a full-on beauty squad to execute beautifully. Whether you’re looking for a show-stopping new look to debut at a holiday soiree or you just want to have a beauty night at home, here are some of our favorite trends to try now.


All that glitters

Any trend that involves sequins, flowers and sparkles is something we’re all too happy to get behind. Luckily, designers from Rodarte to Erdem sent models down runways with glittery clips, barrettes, and crowns—even a metallic chain graced a hairline or two. The best part of this trend? It couldn’t be easier to make your own. Find a hair accessory that speaks to you, spritz hair with a texturizing spray for extra grip, tease the roots where you’ll be inserting the accessory, and prepare to dazzle! Bonus points for wearing a sparkly hair pin with a sequined dress and matching ear cuff, as seen in the model’s look. Because more is definitely more when it comes to glitz.

Texture to the max

This season’s richly-textured clothes—think crushed velvets, faux fur and slick patent leathers—deserve complementary hair. And whether your hair is wavy, curly, kinky or straight, this is a trend you can embrace simply by working with its natural texture. Dry hair with a diffuser, work through a light mousse and you’re ready to hit the town. Because changing up your look is a big part of the fun, straight-haired individuals can try sleeping in braids or using a curling wand to get a tousled, wavy, bedhead look. Another texture that’s on its way back in vogue? Crimping! Yes, really. Dust off the quintessential 1980s hair tool and get to work, because crimped hair and even perms are decidedly in again.

City slicker

The low ponytail couldn’t be more elegant, effortless or ubiquitous. It was all over fall runways, including Jil Sander’s (shown here). What truly takes this style from lazy day to high fashion is keeping it straight and shiny—so style with Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight, then elevate your look by working in a high-sheen finishing gloss (try Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss) for a head-turning luster.

Pretty in pastels

Vibrant, Technicolor-hued hair is still going strong, but this season, the colors are more subdued, muted, smoky, and—dare we say–grown up? We love these hues for winter because they’re the perfect complement to richly-colored and textured attire. If you’re tempted to give it a try, we think the shades of icy lavender, cool denim blue or dusty rose are particularly wearable, flattering and sophisticated

Subtle braids

This trend is simple, unexpected, and couldn’t be easier to execute. Just braid a few small sections of hair near the ears on the side of the head or by the nape. If they’re almost unnoticeable except when you pull your hair up or tuck it behind the ears, you nailed it. For extra impact, braid feathers, colored string or even a bead into your hair. It’s a subtle way to add edge to your ensemble or interest to hair worn down.

We hope some of these designer looks have inspired you to have fun trying a new hairstyle (or two). And while pro stylists aren’t required to achieve these looks, we’re always here if you need us. See you soon!
