We’re here to help you in your quest by suggesting a series of exquisite hairstyle alternatives spotted on the catwalks of some of the most renowned fashion houses, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Zuhair Murad or Ralph Lauren.
1. Punk & Grunge Locks
For their new fall collections, Vivienne Tam, Jean Paul Gaultier and Haider Ackermann chose to go with a series of varied and interesting Grunge influences that included messy waves and boyish haircuts complemented by flashy makeup looks. Meanwhile, the Fendi fall catwalk was dominated by faux Mohawks and other punk vibes, while the Versace fall 2013 was also based on punk-inspired hairstyles honoring rock culture and its eccentric approach to fashion.
2. Wet and Shiny Haircuts
Many models were seen sporting the wet haircut look this season, especially those wearing the alternatives of Balmain, Marni and Prada. And while this move came as no surprise due to the brands’ appeal towards effortless choices, other more glamour-orientated labels were also spotted encouraging the look, including Zuhair Murad and Oscar de la Renta.
3. Braided Hairstyle Trends
Feminine braided hairstyles were in high trend this year, bringing forth a touch of simple elegance and sophistication to the fashion scene. For example, Rodarte opted for a series of bohemian braids to show off on its runways, while milkmaid braids and simple said braids were preferred by Alice+Olivia and Valentino respectively.
4. Low Ponytails
You can never go wrong with a ponytail, as it provides a quick and unpretentious way of styling your hair, especially when you don’t have the time to go for a more sophisticated look. Nonetheless, simple and sleek ponytails were in trend this year, being showcased along the catwalks of Ralph Lauren and John Galliano, while a high volume ponytail version was spotted at the Moschino events. A side ponytail hairstyle can also represent a great choice depending on your outfit.

During the 1960s, big fabulous curls were the default choice of movie stars and other women of fine taste, which is why fashion brands such as Loewe, Bottega Veneta and Marc by Marc Jacobs decided to bring back the look for 2013. What makes these looks appear so special is definitely their joyful, retro-elegant vibes that enable them to stand out and steal the spotlight instantly.
