The new season is imminent, and while a new wardrobe is always exciting, this season, hair and hair accessories are arguably where the real event is taking place. From draped and bejewelled pieces showcased at Khaite and Afffair to billowing feathers at Erdem and Giambattista Valli, designers treated the runway with a plethora of gems that will elevate any outfit or grid picture next season. In our edit below that will make any hair crush jealous, discover what florals are for you and what headbands will turn heads.
Florals might not be groundbreaking, but they are certainly elegant. As spring and summer roll around, we will be hit with an abundance of styles that will be inevitable hits. From the pretty colour selection provided by Bora Aksu to a maximalist bouquet constructed by Prabal Gurung, flowers won’t just be for wedding season.
Romantic and elegant, a flower to be worn at either weddings or festivals.
DRAPED & BEJEWELLED HEADPIECES
No longer a red carpet–only accessory, the diamond trend treats the hair more like the décolletage. Whether spread over the head like at Khaite or elegantly placed down to the centre of the face such as Afffair, this sophisticated look will turn heads at the next dining date.
Draped and embellished—no need to say this twice: Consider it bought.
Inspired by the '70s, this retro trend carries all the nostalgia, whether wrapped and complemented with a bold red lip and black eyeliner like Dolce & Gabbana or slicked away and wrapped through the hair as Jonathan Cohen so creatively embraced.
A favourite trend to date, this muted and minimal style complements every wardrobe. Either wrap a thin one around a sleek pony several times as done at Proenza Schouler or fold one into a low bun. This chic look is unconventional but still timeless.
Taking the charge all spring/summer last year, headbands are now bolder than ever, and as they reinforce their authority in 2020, we can afford to stand out from the crowd. Whether in a thin satin, bold and monogrammed or embellished with stones, pearls and jewels, headbands are breaking their cult status from last season and becoming widespread.
Satin refuses to disappear, not that I'm complaining.
An explosion of light and colour, feathers stormed the runways and will storm our wardrobes in 2020. Exaggerated on a headband or more subtly on a hair clip, the feather trend will be the newcomer everyone wants to wear.
Nostalgic for the first days at school? Well, have we got good news: Bows and ribbons are keeping our hair in check for the coming season. Dotted through the hair at Sandy Liang, this simple trend is easy to emulate.
