30-Second Hairstyles From the Streets of Paris Fashion Week

The very chicest, fleekest hairstyles without the fuss.

14 Mar 2017 By Emma-Charlotte Bangay
In 2017, L’Oréal Paris returned for the third time as official partner of Paris Fashion Week. And this year, the brand’s fashion/beauty synergy hit an all-time high. Over the course of the week, L’Oreal Paris collaborated with more than 20 designers to define the autumn/winter influences in hair and makeup.

But, as is the way with so many of these fashion week schedules, we could barely get past the beauty on the streets let alone what was going on backstage. Easy, breezy no-brainer hair was an absolute standout! Here are the eight easy fashion week hairstyles you can rock at home.

The Tie

On the streets of Paris, even the humble hair tie took a turn towards the more abstract and exciting. Rather than single black bands, messy buns were being tamed with the Invisibobble, a transparent hair tie that doesn’t pull at hair, cause damage or clash with your outfit! We love the chic quirkiness of this very modern must-have hair accessory.

The Texture

Big, fat plaits are a big fat deal this year. We love them loosely fashioned at the nape of the neck and then twisted back and pinned with strong, sleek black hair pins or hairdressers clips. Create texture after the fact by spraying some hairspray into the palms and rubbing in a gentle circular motion around the finished result.

The Comb

We’ve already heralded in 80s beauty, and 80s hair is also having a second wind. Keep it super elegant and side-swept with a humble hair comb. We adore this look for the way it blends sophistication and refinement while taking literally seconds – and spare change – to achieve!

The Ombre

Two-toned hair ain’t going anywhere! Our love affair with darker roots and lighter lengths is becoming less subtle and far more striking amongst beauty insiders and influencers. Do try this at home with a product that offers ease of application and optimal care for hair.

The Brooch

We’re calling it – when you want to amp up a simple side-sweep, rummage around the accessory jar for a vintage or costume jewellery brooch. When worked into a small section of hair on the side, it creates a unique statement you can work back directly with your on-street style.

The Tool

Cascading ponytails were hugely popular on the streets of Paris Fashion Week this year. We adore the ease of wrapping loose strands from the base of the ponytail around the band. Finished off with some perfectly loose loops at the lengths, this look is Parisian perfection!
