As one of the biggest fashion events, New York Fashion Week is the birthplace of many original beauty trends and fashion looks. And yet, most people don't really look to NYFW for ideas on how to spruce up their casual looks. Everything on the runway, from clothes to makeup, can look a little too extra for everyday wear—at least, that’s the common misconception. Of course, over the years, plenty of collections, designers, and trends have taken the less-is-more route by making outfits more wearable and beauty looks more achievable. To help you narrow down your style pegs, we’ve gathered these hairstyles from NYFW that are easy to recreate.
- The Runway Chic Middle Part
Most women like to stick to side parts—where their hair naturally falls. But if you're tired of this look, try parting your hair in the middle. No, it's not too simple, and it's actually very chic if you have sleek straight hair like Janine Gutierrez, who wore this exact hairstyle on the first day of NYFW. Just use a comb to part your hair in the middle, then straighten your tresses with a flat iron in one- to two-inch sections. Pair this hairstyle with a high neck top to frame your face.
- The Smooth High Ponytail
Think of this as the sophisticated version of your plain office ponytail. To pull off this style, gather your hair into a ponytail and smooth out stray strands with a comb. Use an elastic to secure the look, then wrap a section of your tresses around the band to cover it. Secure the end with a bobby pin. If you know that you'll have a particularly busy day ahead of you, pair this hairstyle with a power suit to look and feel like a boss.
- The Tucked Side Part a la Mode
If you’re going for a more natural look, an extra inch to your side part is the perfect way to go. Use a comb to part your hair a few inches away from the center. Tame flyaways by running your hair through a straightener, then use hairspray to keep your locks in place. If you want, you can use a pretty hairclip to help maintain the side part and to make the look more interesting. It’s perfect for girls with short hair like Janine, who also wore this look to NYFW.
Ready to wear your runway-ready hair? Before you get carried away with the flat iron, remember that there's no need to overthink how to style your hair when it already looks sleek, shiny, and nourished. Copping these NYFW hairstyles—and other looks for that matter—is easy when you use good hair care products like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth collection, the #OriginalKeratinExpert. Made with Keratin Bond Complex, the shampoo and conditioner combo helps keep your hair frizz-free, silky, and moisturized, prepping your hair for the perfect office look. No wonder the brand's been NYFW's official hair care partner for more than 10 years.
