After witnessing what appeared to be a total democratization of hairstyles at fashion weeks in February and March, I was interested to see what cuts and colors might emerge in the crowds during the latest fashion month, which started in September in New York and ended in early October in Paris.
The days when hair wasn’t meant to take attention from clothes, for the most part, are over. Some of the most notable styles included streaked or individually dyed braids and choppy bowl cuts with layered colors. Fiery orange appeared to be the hue of the season: It was impossible to miss, no matter the shade. And a dominant styling trend was a just-out-of-the-shower wet look, which gave a slickness to heads both on and off the runway.
As different as hairstyles were, they all brought attention to faces, reminding onlookers that style is not just about clothes but the people wearing them.
Tigers and zebras and a pink bob, oh yes!
