With London Fashion Week still fresh in our minds, the latest hair trends have never seemed more relevant. Here at Additional Lengths, we believe that feeling your best starts with good hair, so if you’re struggling for hair inspiration or are simply wondering what hair is going to be on trend this season then this is the blog for you.
This season, the catwalk was home to a multitude of different hairstyles, colours and lengths to give you that added hair inspiration.
The designers kicked things off in New York before London and then moved the proceedings to Milan, and the hairstyles showcased were ones that we know will be hitting Winter’s top trends this 2019.
So let’s kick things off with one of Burberry’s most talked-about trends right now…
Kendall Jenner rocked the world of fashion this LFW with her brand new look. Blonde. The Kardashian/Jenners are renowned for their dark luscious locks but LFW showed Kendall Jenner sporting a complete hair transformation. Her shock of blonde hair has set the world of fashion on fire and we know that blonde will be at the forefront of this season’s hair trends. Jenner walked in Burberry’s SS20 runway collection, showcasing her new do. Although Jenner subsequently went back to her usual colour, the blonde nonetheless made a huge impact and taught us that change doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
Pulled back bun
Emilia Wickstead showcased her SS20 collection at London Fashion Week walking in the beautiful Royal Albert Hall. The sleek hairstyle displayed a uniformity and sense of sophistication amongst the models, taking it back to the very basics of hairstyling. Wickstead proved that simplicity can be just as effective as going OTT. Pulling your hair back into a bun can be worn as a means of dressing up or down and therefore makes for the perfect hairstyle. It doesn’t take too much effort either (just a lot of hair grips)!
Power of the plait
So, let’s talk about Rixo. Rixo stole the show this year at LFW showcasing their SS20 collection. They brought the peace and togetherness of Woodstock onto the catwalk for a slice of sheer happiness. Rixo brought back the power of the plait, demonstrating that the half plait-half down look still has that wow-factor. Channelling those 70s hippy vibes, Rixo are ahead of hair trends for 2019 as they showcased their SS20 collection. Plaiting is ideal for when you are wanting to keep on-trend whilst ensuring that your hairstyle requires minimum upkeep to remain perfect throughout the day.
16arlington brought back the bandana in their SS20 collection. Perfect for winter 2019 hair trends, this look is on its way to making a comeback. The models’ short hair styled with bandanas made the perfect combo, enhancing the shape of their faces to make for a sleek and high-end look. There are so many ways to style your bandana, from wrapping it around your bun to creating a headscarf style look. Play around with different hair accessories, like bandanas – great for when your hair just won’t do as its told, and allowing you to look super on-trend.
Keeping it wavey
Katie Ann McGuigan put waves back on the hair map this London Fashion Week. The designer labels’ models rocked the wavy look, and she wasn’t the only one to do so. The 1920s inspired hairstyle is set to take over 2019’s top hair trends ahead of the collection’s release in SS20. If you want to achieve the illusion of fuller waves this season, be sure to check out our extensive range of extensions, perfect for those one-off events where you want to give off Great Gatsby vibes. If you can’t replicate the same process as McGuigan’s models, then try curling your hair and brushing it out.
The legendary Victoria Beckham’s LFW runway show had her models sporting a slicked-back hairstyle. Taking your hair back off your face can illuminate your bone structure and not to mention makes for hassle-free hair handling. Pull long hair back into a low bun or ponytail. Alternatively, if you have short hair then don’t worry! Don’t be afraid of experimenting with textures – hair gel is an ideal way to achieve a slicked-back wet-look on shorter styles.
Okay, so now you should feel spoilt for choice on how to style your hair! Whether you’re feeling like changing your hair colour drastically, or fancy adding something simple like a hair accessory, LFW has taught us to stand out from the crowd. Don’t be afraid to experiment with hairstyles as part of your passion for fashion.
