5 Hot Styles Straight from the 2019 Spring/Summer Runways

If there’s anything the spring/summer runways taught us, it’s that anything goes—in terms of hair, that is. From strong men’s- derived cuts to feminine wisps that all-too-often delicately framed the face, there’s a simple style to be commanded by your client, whether she leans tomboy or girlie-girl. Read on for our roundup of this season’s mane attractions.

Slick Runway Hair

Stick Slick

A wet effect glimmered on models’ hair, varying in degrees of “soaked” that ranged from a gym-inspired sweat at Prabal Gurung to deep-marine depths at Chromat.

Wispy Runway Hair

Will of the Wisps

Hair left to hang in front of the face reads refreshingly uncontrived and ushers in a (mostly) romantic feel. Of course, since anything goes in terms of how far you take the look, peer no further than the models of the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi presentation to witness how this style can skew more striking and severe.

Embellishments reign supreme, easily taking a simple style from “meh” to “me-ow!” The best part: Even novice clients can tap a headband or a clip to instantly elevate their look.

Androgynous Cuts

Once reserved only for the boldest of females, men’s-inspired cuts now rank high on the list for countless top models such as Edie Campbell and Sohyun Jung.

Braids For Summer

Braids for Days

Whether they ring sophisticated in their simplicity or more outré with intricate weaving, plaits are as de rigueur now as they will be next season.
