As a former hairdresser, it's not uncommon for me to notice a person's hairstyle before any other aspect of their appearance (or even to remember them by their hair! A terrible habit, I know). So, when it comes to fashion runways, the hairstyles are just as fabulous to me as the collections. Like fashion trends, I enjoy observing which hair trends are gracing the international runways seasonally, so let's take a look at this autumn's offerings!
This SS21, I'll confess I was secretly pleased to recognise redefined versions of cult 80s and 90s hair classics - the pixie cut, blunt bobs, and bangs were all being transformed into edgy, sexy, and chic updates! Although the classic bob has been in trend for a while now, it was nice to see shorter, sharper, and blunter versions frequently appear on the runways, much like how the new rendition of the sexy pixie cut also created eye-catching impressions.
Of course, long hair remains in fashion, with Saint Laurent and Isabel Marant models adopting soft and flowing classic looks of understated waves, wet locks, and side parts. Although I loved seeing the return of the pixie and the banging bang, I must say, Simone Rocha's re-emergence of the versatile braid has proved to be a runway showstopper, with the models' hair meticulously braided and twisted into abstract shapes - almost like futuristic hair sculptures.
There's been lots of hair inspiration on the SS21 fashion runways, so we've selected some scroll through favourites should you feel the need for a little hair transformation. Enjoy!
