Hair Trends that Ruled this Year’s NYFW

For hair stylists, when it comes to New York Fashion week, it goes beyond just the brands and fashion. I don’t know about you but the first thing I look at is the HAIR! I would even consider it the main event! And year after year, NYFM is trailblazing the hottest hairstyles and hair accessories that left us breathless and recreating straight away.

NYFW is definitely giving us refreshing and eclectic hairstyles we LOVE to see on the runway. And this year, it got bolder than ever as it features neon hair colours, graphic patterns and more. If you didn’t catch a glimpse, below is a quick recap of NYFW hair that are definitely a cut above the rest.

 You can even call it the mane event. And year after year, NYFW is trailblazing the hottest hairstyles and hair accessories that left us breathless and replicating right after. 

NYFW is definitely giving us refreshing and eclectic hairstyles we LOVE to see on the runway. And this year, it got bolder than ever as it features neon hair colors, graphic patterns  among others. If you were not able to get a glimpse, below is a quick recap of  NYFW hair that are definitely a cut above the rest.

Trend #1: Half-Wet Hair

Kim Kardashian stuns in her wet look dress, makeup and hair during the 2019 Met Gala but NYFW made half-wet hair a trend. This is the term coined by Justine Marjan, This half-wet hair style was featured by Hellessy for their RTW Spring 2020. What better way to pair their boxy blazers, shirt-like hems and layered shirts than a sleek hairstyle and half-wet waves.

My HOT TIPS on creating this look 

  • Directional blow dry the top section with our curved comb 
  • Blow dry the rest of the hair in wide thick sections

(this look is very organic so  with our Time Saver Brush you will have it done in no time at all) 

  • Using the black bungee tape wrap the top pony and loop the hair into a top knot with the tape (OMG how good is bungee tape

Trend #2: The Micro Crimp

The first night of NYFW really made an impact with Jeremy Scott and his hair metal meets glam rock runway for Spring 2020. It was as if we were transported back in the 80s filled with tacky prints, crazy bright hair, and ruffled lace among others. The eye-popping garments and hair surely made a bang and it is something we can definitely expect out from Jeremy Scott.

Trend #3: Scarf-tied Hair

Stylist James Pecis made Kate Spade NYFW hair look laidback and stylish. Thanks to its scarf-tied braided buns that best complemented Kate Spade’s garden setting and floral items. Many remarked the style as relatable and it is something one can do even on a daily basis. 

My HOT TIPS on creating this look 

  • Directional Blow Dry the hair using our Curve comb 
  • Blow Dry the ends in no time at all with our best seller Time Saver Brush 
  • Use the curve comb to scoop the hair into a pony and secure with Bungee Tape 
  • Create a 3 strand braid and tie on your scarf 

Trend #4: Greater Heights

Bigger is always better! Guido Palau created a totally amazing style that had everyone in awe. Hair pro Palau created a cartoonish cone-shaped style at Tomo Koizumi. This is something definitely regarded as extreme but I soooooo LOVED IT. 

My HOT TIPS on creating this look 

  • Mouse up that hair! No need to work from wet hair to prep simply work 1 section at a time and and load the hair up with mouse ( I personally like UNITE Elevate mouse) dry in with our Time Saver Brush 
  • Before you set run the HTZ root volumizer over all the root area avoiding the outer edges so its hidden, set with a pencil tong 
  • To mold the shape you will need to make a Hair Bat ( this is a wire coat hanger bent into a triangle shape and covered with a stocking.
  • Together with a hair dryer and hair spray it works a treat 

Trend #5: Hair Accessories

Hair accessories were SOOOOOO cool during this year’s NYFW with almost every brand and fashion icon embracing an accessory or two. Sandy Liang featured a lot of silk bows tied throughout the hair, giving it more texture. Pyer Moss also came up with donned wigs and beads from its ponytails to buns. Prabal Gurung featured fresh flowers sculpted on their models’ heads, and combs for Tory Burch.

NYFW 2019 truly gave us hair inspiration that we can recreate in our salons right now.
