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.

Every city has its own aesthetic. New York can never seem to fully shake the eighties. Paris is tied indefinitely to the chicness of a scarf. London is the home of both preppy and punk. Combining the two influences, this short shape feels both buttoned-up and roughed-up. Frayed edges counter classic lines in this outgrown shape that pairs equally well with leather and polos. If you’re looking for a new cut, a bit of British influence may be just the thing. Click the style notes to learn more. –– Laura Martin

LFW

The middle-part reigned at London Fashion Week. Brands like Pringle of Scotland, Paul Smith, and Jonathan Saunders sent models down the runway with center-parted strands flowing into loose, textured ends. Nothing too straight or too styled, just perfectly imperfect. Center-parts are great for framing the face, but unless your visage is  faultlessly symmetric, it’s better to make it slightly off of center, so you don’t split your face down the middle.
