The 5 Biggest Hair Trends Taking Over Paris Right Now

We know what you’re thinking: Fashion Month is still going on? The fatigue might have set in now that New York has long wrapped and the fashion pack is holed up in their fourth city, but the beauty inspiration? It hasn’t slowed down for a second.

We sent a street style photographer to the City of Light to capture all the best beauty looks — and she came back with a list of every single hair trend you’ll want to wear this fall. Forget the bedhead-y, ‘French girl hair’ you’re used to reading about; these showgoers are rewriting the rules with rainbow dye jobs, blunt bangs, and rad hair accessories.

Keep clicking for a look at the five biggest hair trends from Paris S/S 2019 Fashion Week — then book an appointment with your stylist before everyone gets back.

Bangs

Whether baby and blunt or wispy and wavy, fringe was one of the most popular looks of the season. They were spotted on locals and visiting fashion editors alike, and styled in a variety of ways. The standout set you’ll notice ahead is blunt, worn above the brows, and styled silky smooth. One thing’s for sure: This isn’t the French-girl bang you might expect.

Rainbow Color

Forget the latest “It” bag, it was ROYGBIV that distinguished the coolest women attending Fashion Week in Paris — and there was no one way to try the look du jour. Vibrant wigs and Technicolor crops mingled with rooty shades of pumpkin spice and soft washes of pastel color to form a rainbow of inspiring options outside shows. Hell, there’s even bright pink brows ahead…

Hair Accessories

Like colorful hair, there was no right hair accessory to choose before stepping onto Rue de Honoré this season. The actual accessories covered the spectrum, but they all had one big thing in common: function. Silk kerchiefs held low ponytails in place, pins secured stray hairs, and stretch headbands gave dry shampoo the day off. Noticeably missing, however, were scrunchies — the latest stateside trend — which lost out to patterned scarves both short and long.

Brushed Back Hair

Equal parts slicked back and lived-in, the wet look got the Parisian treatment this season. Many showgoers brushed back their strands using a shine-enhancing product, but unlike its red carpet counterpart, this iteration was a bit more imperfect and a lot less, well, wet. A little shine goes a long way and if a few strands fall out of place? All the better to enhance your je ne se quoi.

Loose Updos

We’ve been living in the era of the boss bun stateside, but overseas things look a whole lot softer. That means if you want to fit in in Paris, it’s best to forget the precise, structured updos from award season and embrace imperfect buns and chignons that look unique, fall beautifully, and look like they took all of three minutes to create. (Which, of course, we know isn’t true.)
