After taking a look at some of the hair trends that dominated S/S 17′s Paris Fashion Week, we couldn’t help but to fall for Alexander McQueen’s witchy textured ponytails. This undone textured pony paired perfectly with the Medieval English theme of the collection.
New York Fashion week is known for pushing the envelope, and the looks can be hard to translate to the street. If the runways at home seem too extreme, you may find inspiration abroad.The French are famous for gamine chic: an understated, effortless and slightly androgynous style. From shirred waves to boyish pleats, these subdued looks are subtle enough for everyday wear and oh so stylish. Click the notes to learn more about each look. ––Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
Vasilisa Pavlova stars in this new editorial from Harrods, the luxury retailer of Knightsbridge, London. Taking inspiration from the tough, devil-may-care attitude of the punk rock scene, in the images Vasilisa portrays a singer entering the stage. With looks from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Erdem, and Victoria Beckham, the mohawk hairstyle and dark lip complete a cool and gritty looking spread. See all the well-dressed images below.

Leave your broken pins and stretched out scrunchies at home. Spring 2016 was the season of some serious statement hair accessories, from the tiaras at Saint Laurent to the retro headbands at Dolce & Gabbana. Well-placed ribbons at Oscar De La Renta channeled a lady-like vibe and could have easily complemented the Victorian trend see at Alexander McQueen and Givenchy. Even the little barrettes at Marc Jacobs, paired with lived-in 1940s styles, proved that the tiniest detail can bring a whole look together. So if you want to dive hair first into this trend, opt for a hair tie with a textured accent or an embellished leather headband. This season there is no excuse to neglect your head.
