Rough, woolly texture took many forms on the runways at New York Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week. Fleecy buns topped the darkly dramatic looks at Jason Wu. Dreadlocked ponytails gave the models a touch of toughness at Rag and Bone. Cloud-like blonde wigs lent an ethereal element to the somber looks at Thom Browne. Cottony texture will lend your look a high-fashion feeling. Learn how to create it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Jason Wu called his Fall Ready-to-Wear designs his “most womanly, most grown-up” collection yet. Moving away from his previous quirky style to an assertive perspective, Wu’s new looks were a great mix of the hip and the feminine. The models donned achromatic tailored suits; emphasizing shoulders and nipped waists, they felt bold and decisive and womanly. Purple doe eyes with muted lips and cheeks added the hip, street tough twist. Yet it was the hair we found most interesting. Taking the braiding trend to higher ground, Wu had hairstylist Odile Gilbert create “chic and elegant” updos involving several interwoven sections and artsy interpretations of the chignon. Like the collection as a whole, the new take on the entwine shows fashion and beauty moving swiftly towards a more sophisticated direction.

The two biggest hair trends from spring/summer 2012 are colored streaks (a la Lady Gaga, Coco Rocha, Jamie King and, well, practically every other trend-setting celebrity) and braids (think braided headbands, fishtail braids, messy braids, inside out French braids and more). Paired together, though, and your hair goes from merely trendy to truly epic.  Click through to find out more!
