While editors, stylists and makeup artists often look to the runways to inform the next biggest trends in beauty (think bold hair colour and fluffy, crimped hair), today, we’ve been honing in on the inspiring hair trends we saw off the runways. We're talking about the ones we’ve spotted everywhere from the streets of Milan to the London tourist spots throughout 2019.
From trendy low ponytails to wavy Carrie Bradshaw–esque curls and sharp centre partings, there's undoubtedly been a little something for everyone this year—from New York to Paris. So if you’re looking to end the year with a little inspiration on how to style your hair, scroll below for the six hair trends that have been dominating the streets in 2019 and are set to continue into 2020.
Forget pulling your hair up high—sleek low ponytails have been spotted all over the streets this year. Most were pulled tight and tied with minimalist hair ties while others had a more relaxed undone aesthetic.
If there’s one thing that’s definitively clear on the streets, it’s that centre parts are reigning supreme. Get inspired and wear your hair straight down the middle, simply styled with some healthy shine.
Carrie Bradshaw Hair
Carrie Bradshaw’s hair (circa season two for true Sex and the City) has been making a comeback—with the fashion crowd stepping out in her iconic loose waves. The effortless style exudes as a carefree aesthetic but doesn’t look overly messy or dishevelled.
Go short or go home seemed to be the motto on the streets at fashion month. Short under-the-ear cuts were seen everywhere from New York to London—with textured bobs being the most popular.
Clips! Headbands! Bows! Whether slicked back in a ponytail or loose and wavy, hair was punctuated with charming statement hair accessories all over the streets during fashion month—proof that the trend is going from strength to strength.
The low pony’s popular little sister, the low bun, also made its mark this fashion month. The quick, easy and effortless hairdo was slicked back from a centre part and occasionally tied with scrunchies or fun hair accessories.
