Looking for some fall beauty inspo? Want to switch up your same-old, same-old? The hair trends we love from New York Fashion Week have a common thread: real-life potential, right now. As usual, NYFW showed off out-there runway beauty glam that’s fun to gawk at, but not so fun to try to replicate at home, but this season, it also featured some pretty doable fall 2018 hairstyles. You can for sure pull off these ‘dos without a hitch—all you need are the right tools in your beauty tool belt. We’re obsessed…
Slicked-back hair isn’t just for guys anymore. This no-part or super-subtle-part look is so effortless yet sophisticated and pulled together. Yes to all of that.
How to pull it off: First, get your hair iron-straight. Next, work a dollop of gel through the crown and use a brush or comb to brush it back, completely off your face. Finally, if you want to add some soft waves, you can do so on mid-length to ends. Depending on how thick your hair is, you may need bobby pins to secure the sides behind each ear.
This season, hairstyles are all about staying true to who you are and what you’ve got to work with—that’s a lot! Designers from Stella McCartney to Balmain paired natural textures, loose waves and this “refined bedhead” look with their glitz and glam.
How to pull it off: Blow-dry damp hair with only your fingers. Next, use a curling iron to drop in some subtle curls. Twist the curler in different directions so waves aren’t perfectly symmetrical.
From Tom Ford to Ralph & Russo, low buns rocked the fall 2018 runways. While typically buns are a great option for second-day hair and that messy look we love, this style takes it in a different direction: Slicked back and so fresh and so clean tresses that radiate upscale ballerina.
How to pull it off: First, get that hair squeaky clean by using a shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner. Next, apply a pea-size amount of hair serum for extra shine and to create the slicked-back look. Brush hair back and low. Finally, twist the bun at the nape of the neck and pin, pin, pin.
