The SS19 Hair Trends To Know About
1. Texture TonicAs seen at: Alberta Ferretti, Alexa Chung, Escada, Roksanda
The word ‘texture’ was on repeat backstage amongst styling squads. Lead stylists were all for switching out heated tools to focus more on product prep-work to play on individual texture. Just like make-up artists, hands were used to apply products to models’ hair to dry in and massage in for more of an organic feel.
2. Nineties NuancesAs seen at: Burberry, Roberta Einer, Christopher Kane
Raw, stripped-back styling usually references one decade in particular: the 90s. Whether it was unfussy, relaxed chignons at Burberry or boyish ponytails at Christopher Kane, the minimalist 90s was undoubtedly the muse decade.
3. Just Add AccessoriesAs seen at: Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Versace
Whether it’s low-key dancer-inspired bands at Dior, or exaggerated leather headbands at Prada, accessories defined a whole lot of hair looks for SS19. Accessories for spring weren’t so much statement or shouty, but about enhancing the overall hair silhouette.
To stay in keeping with the SS19 mood, try out a headband in a neutral tone.

4. Split Personality HairAs seen at: Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane, Markus Lupfer, Palmer Harding
If you can’t decide on wet or dry hair, do both. Dual texture hair – wet-look on top with textured lengths – was the coolest way to do wet-look hair for SS19. There was another reverse approach, too. Think just-stepped-out-of-the-sea ends, as seen backstage at Markus Lupfer and Calvin Klein.
The key takeaway for your styling: don’t give your hair too much ‘finish’. It’s better if your half-wet hair makes it look like you’ve actually spent a day lazing at the beach.

5. Braidy BunchAs seen at: Erdem, Longchamp, Bora Aksu
Forget hippy, festival plaits. Braids weren’t seen in their typical ethereal form for SS19. This season, braid have been reinvented with a bit of guts. At Longchamp, Guido Palau mixed up the uniformity of the line-up by adding braids to some of the models to “give them character”.
For braids with a more lived-in feel, try out the low, twin braids at Bora Aksu, created by Tina Outen, lead hairstylist for L’Oréal Professionnel. The braids were looped and given feathered ends for a “weathered look”.
