Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and we're left with enough hair inspiration to last us until next year—or at least fall, before it all starts over again. This year, designers and lead hairstylists continued to embrace low-maintenance texture (the hair-equivalent of no-makeup makeup we're happy to see still going strong), but also experimented with amped-up braids, hair sequins (a personal favorite), and more. Ahead, see the biggest hair trends we spotted backstage and on the runways during NYFW F/W 2020.
Embellished Braids at Tadashi Shoji
Oribe stylist Kevin Ryan created undone, mussed-up texture backstage at Tadashi Shoji, weaving in brightly-covered fabrics through some models' strands.
Fantasy Topknots at Rodarte
Lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert was inspired by the collection to create hair that “looked like a young, cool girl who could be the wife of a vampire.” She added subtle bends to the models' hair with ghd's Curve Classic Wave Wand.
Surfer Texture at Eckhaus Latta
Models at Eckhaus Latta looked like they'd spent all day catching waves, thanks to R+Co's Rockaway Salt Spray. If you needed proof the wet-hair look isn't going anytime soon, it's right here.
Embellished Waves at Alice + Olivia
Lead hairstylist Justine Marjan took cues from the collection's '70s, bohemian feel and added crystal adornments to models' waves, held in place by TRESemmé's Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray
Topiary Shapes at Christopher John Rogers
The hair looks at Christopher John Rogers were inspired by topiary shapes, held firmly in place by Amika's Headstrong Intense Hold Hairspray.
Dip-Dyed Ponies at Christian Siriano
“Christian Siriano’s collection has loose Harley Quinn ties," explains TRESemmé's Global Stylist, Justine Marjan. "We added pink and blue extensions to sleek ponytails so you’d see pops of color in the back and a clean finish in the front.”
Second-Day Hair at L'Agence
Models at L'Agence had their hair styled into slightly-more-styled versions of their natural texture, ranging from straight to coily.
Twisted Ponies at Johnathan Simkahi
TRESemmé NYFW Stylist Odile Gilbert put a spin on the classic low pony by double twisting two strands for a rope effect, then braiding at the bottom.
Baby Waves at The Blonds
“We wanted to create looks that radiate opulence and abundance," says hairstylist Kevin Hughes. He sculpted models' baby hairs and bangs into waves using Moroccanoil Strong Hold Gel.
