Combining sweaty gym hair with turn-of-the-century carved curls, autumn’s take on the wet look is both romantic and tough. The organic glossy waves makes a dramatic statement that pairs beautifully with dark lips or heavily lined eyes, both big trends for fall. Add these slick wisps to braids, buns, or brushed-back bobs.

I’m going to be honest: the hair at NYFW Spring Summer 2015 was, dare I say it, boring. Most of the shows featured air-dryer texture, or smooth blowouts. The usually array of extreme textures and over-the-top styles was strangely absent. Instead the runways were full of simple, pretty hair—not very interesting, at least not at first. But look a little closer and there’s lots to love. From streaks of silver to tiny knots, to unusual parts, the beauty of this season is all in the details.
