Straight-out-of-the-shower slick back hair
Effortless post-shower locks are in, as showcased in the Badgley Mischka and Proenza Schouler runway shows. Matched with romantic waves, you can achieve sleek strands by starting with damp hair, applying high shine hair gel starting from the roots, and then combing it back as desired.

Sleek low ponytail or bun
Whether you twist it in a bun or keep it tied in a ponytail, this sophisticated look will always be a classic style you can wear to work or during special events. To create that glass hair-like shine, use smoothing serums to tame any flyaways. Another secret to keeping it ultra-polished? Run a few swipes of the flat iron and secure your hair at the nape of the neck with a strand of your hair wrapped around.
Printed head scarves with flowy hair
Keeping your hair in place while looking stylish is possible with headwraps inspired by the runway models of Anna Sui and Cushnie Et Ocs. Colorful turbans and head pieces would look gorgeous with loose wavy hair that you can set in place with the right hairspray, making sure every strand is perfect.

Au naturale wash-and-go look
It’s about time natural hairstyles dominate the runway, and it’s amazing how so much versatility is revealed when different women rock the hair textures they were born with. With little to no styling, you can achieve this ‘done undone’ look with an excellent blow-dry to get you going during busy work days.

Fashionable headpiece as accent to a loose, laid-back style
Making jaws drop can be as easy as sporting an epic hat to match your power outfit. That’s exactly what supermodel Emily Ratajkowski did at the Marc Jacobs NYFW show. From the runway to the front row, you too can perfect any everyday look with the perfect fashionable accessory while flaunting hair that’s free of split ends. Now that's what we call a strong statement!

Short, sweet, and shocking tousled tresses
Whether long or short, your hair can look rebellious while still looking controlled and chic.
Tousled looks are always in style, with models from Prabal Gurung’s show sporting low knots and buns with pretty much the same disheveled look. The key to keeping the volume? Mist texturizing spray onto damp or dry hair to add fullness. For a grungier, more lived-in look, layer into sections for additional hold.
