Leave it to the ladies of Rodarte to create the stand out hair accessory of the season. The designers are known to have an affection for unique beauty adornments ( I’m still loving the previous season’s crystal eyeliner embellishments and eyebrow rings). But the Spring 2016 show as all focused on hair, more specifically decorative statement barrettes. The beauty team made sure to adorn models’ texturized strands with unique and unexpected placements creating a modern crown look. Styled with the collection’s intricate appliqués, lace, and sequins, the trinket’s made a big case for more is more. I’m sure we’ll be seeing them in H&M in two weeks.

Mimicking the effects of seawater on hair is nothing new. We’ve seen surf-blonde, beach waves, and windblown updos for many seasons. But capturing the separation and grungy texture of sea salt hair without the wave is something fresh. This styling technique maximizes texture while looking a little sleeker than it’s wavy counterpart. Learn to create beach-straight in the style notes. –Laura Martin

Traditionally, fashion week transformations are temporary. Extensions, wigs, and extreme styling techniques have given runway models bold looks that only last for the length of the show. At the end of the day the models brush out their strands and return to their—much less daring—street style. But that’s beginning to change. We’re seeing models cut and color their hair for a show, making a runway statement that becomes their new look. At the recent NYFW Alexander Wang show a number of the models had their hair cut and colored by the famous Guido Palau. The resulting looks will define the model’s style for months to come. Click the notes to see the model’s new looks. —Laura Martin

This shade of vibrant golden orange is named for the Australian Outback. It captures the vivid warmth of desert sun, and the vibrant hue of red sand. It’s a color at once earthy and unreal, an exotic shade that recalls spices and exotic flora. Get the professional formula in the style notes.–Laura Martin
