I kind of feel bad for the photographers during fashion month. Although they can be pretty pesky while they're trying to get a good shot of the well-dressed masses, it has to be tough figuring out who to shoot. Everyone just looks so good — from the models who are skipping back and forth in between shows to the actresses and influencers and editors on their way to watch them. Hair and makeup trends are abundant during fashion week, and there's never a shortage of inspiration — especially if you're looking for a new haircut or color to try.
On the streets outside of the New York Fashion Week spring and summer 2019 shows, there were so many silhouettes and hues that were reflective of the hair trends ahead for next year. And even better, there's something for all lengths and textures, too: we're talking bangs, crops, accessories, slick-backs, half-ups, and even pastel pink dye jobs. Because everyone deserves a fresh makeover, right? And hair changes ... they're always so fun.
Ahead, see some of the most standout looks I spotted over the course of the week, from the women who walk the runways and the ones who nail it every day.
An attendee clipped on a stylish white enamel hair accessory right above the base of her updo. To prevent your bauble from slipping, try spraying the clip with a bit of dry shampoo.
At the Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards, Ashley Graham accented her sleek, center-parted blowout with a neat mini row of gold bobby pins.
And Tk Wonder's hair always leaves me in amazement. Her secret? "I'm not a product militant," she once told Marie Claire. "I'm not going to sit here and say you shouldn't use something because it's not natural... I think everything in moderation. Like a sweet tooth—it's okay once in awhile."
Outside of a show, a snakeskin print-clad fashionista secured her brunette curls with two jeweled clips.
There's nothing manic or panic-worthy about this attendees' bright pink 'do, which is even more approachable with soft layers. To maintain a vivid color like this one, Überliss' Bond Sustainer Fuchsia Hibiscus is ideal, as it features technology that restores damaged and weak hair bonds. (Plus, the color is prettyyy.)
Or, take a cue from model Fernanda Ly and try a pastel palette. The soft, washed-out hues were also spotted at Marc Jacobs, where over 35 models dyed their hair for the show. "Marc didn't want a 'fun' pastel," Josh Wood, Redken Global Color Creative Director, said in a post-show release. "He wanted an aged, vintage pastel where they look like they have a history to them. Like a grown up pastel, with the help of a shadow root... which helps stop the hair from looking like a wig while keeping it modern."
Maria Borges wore her halo of hair in a soft, rounded shape.
Dying over this dark, shaggy crop (and the moody cranberry lip).
Backstage at Monse, stylists patted Amira Pinheiro's 'fro into a sharp, blocked shape using a little bit of water, styling cream, an Afro pick, and hand styling.
"Pixie power," Jourdana Phillips captioned of her perfectly styled cut.
To keep her buzzed cut nice and shiny, Hereith Paul uses an easy DIY recipe: “Shea butter!" she told Essence. "I melt it, mix with coconut oil and rub it into my hair. It makes your hair really strong.”
Slicked Back Strands
Outside of the shows, a stylish attendee wore her baby hairs slicked down to go with her backswept hairstyle.
For maximum volume, tease your hair at the crown — and shape it by discreetly pinning your sides.
Lobs And Bobs
Half-ups never go out of style — especially when you add a wrapped ponytail and bodacious waves in the mix.
Kaia Gerber's brunette waves are impeccable...
... as is Hailey Clauson's bendy blowout.
Julia Belyakova is proof that a little well-placed frizz is never a bad thing.
Center parts were all the rage on the runway — and on the streets, as seen on a stylish attendee.
Ophelie Guillermand's side-swept bangs gave her long, loose curls a little bit of edge.
Cheyenne Maya-Carty, who's walking in this year's Victoria's Secret show, has such gorgeous, glossy ringlets.
