Fashion Week Hair Trends…

Fashion Week AW17 came and went in the blink of an eye and left behind two key hair trends: ponytails and textured down-dos. Here you’ll find out how to perfect the looks that everyone will be wearing come fall.

We were backstage at the biggest shows this season including Erdem, J.W. Anderson and Topshop Unique; with a pool of hair artist talent including Duffy, Anthony Turner, Adam Reed and Stephen Low to name a few.

The hair story differed somewhat to what we usually see on the A/W runway. Words such as ‘innocent’, ‘angelic’ and ‘pure’ were used to describe many of the effortless looks – something that is more commonly seen of the S/S catwalks. That being said, slicked ponies and bed head textures appeared intermittently, reminding us that choice is always on offer.

Here are our favourite looks and how you can achieve them using Tecni.ART
