Paris Fashion Week officially came to a close yesterday, concluding this year's Spring/Summer 2017 runway shows. Over the past few weeks, we've seen a plethora of fresh and unique hairstyle trends on models that we can't wait to adopt when spring 2017 rolls around – better yet, now! From Christian Dior's game-changing braided top knot to Chanel's '90s-inspired ponytails adorned with fluorescent elastics, designers took classic hairstyles and gave them their own unique twist.

The best part? Most 'dos spotted on this season's runways are totally wearable and can be played up or down depending on the occasion. That's why Get The Look is rounding up the most prominent (and wearable) trends on the Spring 2017 runways to give you the ultimate hair inspiration!



'Wet' looking hair as recently become one of the most coveted hairstyle trends on and off the runway. While celebs like L'Oreal muse Doutzen Kroes have pulled off the sleek, 'wet' look in the past, it-girls Kim Kardashian and Ashley Graham took the style to a whole new level at this year's MTV Video Music Awards with their just-out-of-the-shower looks, paving the way for others to do the same.

If done correctly, 'wet' hair is a super chic way to avoid the damage from heat drying, not to mention, it makes getting ready after a shower that much quicker. At London Fashion Week, drenched lengths were pressed, twisted and combed in every direction. Bella Hadid appeared as though she had used rainwater as a styling tool for her stroll down the Versus Versace runway, while Christopher Kane showed off a side-swept slick that officially rendered a blow-dryer unnecessary.

Later on at Paris Fashion Week, barely textured wet waves were shown at Loewe, futuristic slick downs at Givenchy and retro swim caps at Miu Miu. Balmain got in the game with an army of wet-eyed bombshells, while the pin-straight comb overs at Alexander McQueen retained the house's dark, romantic tone.


While braids are the most common hair accessory, designers transformed them in their own way for Spring 2017 Fashion Week. At Christian Dior, four miniature plaits were inverted and tucked beneath sporty top knots, while voluminous, loose Rapunzel-esque braids were preferred at Valentino.

If there's one lesson we can take away from Fashion Week, it's to find your braid personality and show it off! Whether its French, low-key and voluminous, or tied into a sporty top-knot braids are here to stay for spring 2017!


With crimped and textured hair being transformed from '90s school-girl staple to high-fashion must-have, the fashion and beauty world is beginning to play around with other popular '90s hair trends. Take Chanel's Spring/Summer 2017 show in Paris, for example. Karl Lagerfeld had models walking the runway with sideways, different coloured hats that sat atop voluminous, low side ponytails. Better yet, the ponytails were kept together with the help of charm-adorned hair elastics in fluorescent orange, green, yellow and powder blue.

Spring 2017 is the time to dig up your favourite '90s accessories, hot tools and hairstyles!


While textured hair seems to be a crowd favourite as of late, that doesn't mean straight hair needs to be completely forgotten when spring rolls around. At Milan Fashion Week, L'Oreal muses Doutzen Kroes and Irina Shayk took the Versace runway wearing sporty-meets-city ensembles and a head of long, pin straight hair, challenging this season's 'textured' trend. Their shiny locks gave Versace's active looks a more sophisticated edge, giving us a new way to amp up any look.

Luckily for us, pin straight hair is fairly easy to achieve. All you need is a flat-iron, hairspray and a little patience!


If Karl Lagerfeld's '90s-inspired fluorescent hair elastics weren't enough to spark your interest in hair accessories for spring, get inspired by Erdem's simple grosgrain black ribbon – the hair accessory of the season – that turned braided buns from an undone mess to an ethereal dream.

And if that doesn't convince you to incorporate hair accessories into your styling routine, look to one of the most classic choices: baseball caps worn sideways and in bright colours, as advised by Karl Lagerfeld.
