Fashion Week Street Style | Hair Inspiration

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2016 might have been and gone but it's certainly not forgotten. The fashion industry's event of the year saw our evo, Cloud Nine and Moroccanoil hair teams bring life to runway shows from Australian labels like Yeojin BaeC/MEO and Rebecca Vallance, but the models weren't the only stars of the show - Fashion Week wouldn't be the same without it's show-goers.

Here we've captured some of our favourite Fashion Week street style moments for some incredible hair inspiration. From ponytail's to the perfect wave, these styles ruled the streets.

Our experts give us their tips on how to achieve these looks to help us get ready for our next big event!

I'm liking the middle parts here and the fact the hair is smooth but not too straight and still has a touch of volume in the roots. To create this look, I would blow-dry the hair but if blowdrying is too much effort for a mid-week look, I would use the Cloud Nine Original or Cloud Nine Wide Iron to smooth the hair on a low temperature – nothing above 175 degrees. If you do choose to blow-dry the hair, smooth it after at a super-low temperature like 125 degrees. With hair this long, it’s really important to invest in a decent brush and get regular trims. Be gentle when brushing, don’t over process the hair or use high temperatures when heat styling.

Very few things beat a perfect
ponytail for me. This look is so sophisticated and too cool for school at the same time.  In order to create the perfect pony, I start with the perfect foundation, and for me that’s the Moroccanoil Treatment Light. I would then layer in the Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse to achieve the perfect texture and natural shine. A trick I picked up backstage at Fashion Week is to lightly spray the root area with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection and blow-dry into the direction of where you want to place the base of the ponytail. This gets rid of bubbles and gives you the ultimate sleek and shiny finish.

I like that this woman takes care of how she looks and clearly visits the salon regularly. To get this look I would blow-out the hair using evo’s mister fantastic and set with the Cloud Nine Waving Wand, finishing the look with evo builders paradise and a couple of drops of evo love perpetua. It’s all about the prep work if you want curls like this to last all day, be sure not to use a heavy shampoo or conditioner and always start with mister fantastic. It’s really important to set the hair at the right temperature too and leave curls to cool before dressing them out.

This look is effortless and minimal. It has a no fuss approach that suits the overall look. To recreate this look I would start by washing the hair with evo therapist shampoo and evo therapist conditioner and apply evo easy tiger straightening balm and blow dry the hair smooth with the evo bruce bristle brush. To keep hair this length looking its best you need to keep up your cuts as you don’t want it flicking out on the shoulders. I would recommend having a cut every 6-8 weeks to ensure the look is polished and maintained.
