Each city that fashion month touches injects its own personality into the mix. New York is all about practicality, streetwear and a cool edge; London can be quirky or sway into prim and proper territory, and Paris is the go-to for all things chic—but Milan is where the real fun is. If you want to see risks, color, sparkle and everything the runway probably should be, this is the week to tune in. Can’t make it to the capital of Lombardy? Peep our round-up of the best hair the Italians have to offer.
A Partial Focus
Your hair can be as free as you like when your part is this grounding, as seen at Alberta Ferretti.
A Partial Focus
Emphasize the bulk of your locks to the side for a fun update on a classic look, like this model at Jil Sander.
Dress up a pony or long braid with a graphic accessory for mega-depth a la Max Mara.
Dressed-up Top Knot
The always-cute top knot has made its way from the gram to the runway and we couldn’t be more for it. To fake baby hairs, and a diagonal part through the crown for insta dimension at the one and only Fendi.
This has been a regal year and it looks like the opulent trend is continuing into summer 2019. The headbands at Prada are a nod to a 1960s good-girl, while leather and studs create a futuristic feel. “Every girl has a short fringe that gives it a boyish, toughness, rebelliousness. It’s funny how it changed their faces and they become different personalities and then with the headband, it’s a real strong silhouette,” says hair lead and Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau. Stock up for Christmas, because the higher the headband, the closer to Prada.
The Statement Hat
Is it us or is Moschino serving major Pretty Woman vibes? Take it back to the early 90s with bold prints and a matching on-point statement hat. For this look, hair is gelled straight back in almost austere pony—this look is nothing but serious business, though there’s still the sense of humor we’ve come to expect from the fun-loving label.
The Statement Hat
Your statement hat is open for interpretation. Whether you’re going full on fedora or dressed-up dad, the more glamorous, the better. This gem from Emporio Armani is sporty meets glitz meets neon meets yaasss.
The Donatella vibe reigned at Versace with hair long, sexy and glamourous. “We’ve blow dried the hair smooth then put some movement back in – it’s very rich looking,” notes Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau. To get the look he relies on Satinwear 04: $19, which locks in shine. A curling iron also helps add a touch of movement. “I want it to feel very luxurious, very easy, but finished,” he explains.
Waves don’t die—especially not beach waves at Etro. To update for SS19, swap loose or overdone too-perfect curls for tighter ringlets with an effortless wet look.
Keep hair tucked behind the ears to look instantly put-together. It’s a simple way to give any look a clean feel—and every texture goes, as seen on the super muses at Roberto Cavalli.
The classic half-up, half-done style has been solidified on the runway. Bella is nothing short of angelic in this easy to do, surprisingly graphic fave at Missoni.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it. We’re happy to report that there’s no need to iron out your hair or run to the nearest Beauty Supply – natural hair is here to stay, as beautifully demonstrated on the catwalk at Iceberg. We see you, Milano.
