If the AW17 catwalk shows are anything to go by, this season, it’s all about the hair. From power plaits to forceful fringes, hair was all about strong simplicity. Take stock, as we reveal our favourite autumn hair trends straight from the runway.
1. Power Plaits
Whilst plaits have never quite been out of fashion, for fall, they are everywhere. From power plaits to cool-girl cornrows, there is a definite resurgence in school-girl style. Fenty, Alberta Ferretti, Emporio Armani and Balmain all showcased their take on the trend.
2. Sleek Simplicity

Whilst slicked-back hair was one of the biggest trends for SS17, this season, the trend has loosened up a little. Easy, effortless and undone, hair was simply tossed back or tucked behind the ears.
3. Off The Face
Basically, if you’re wearing you hair away from your face for AW17 then you’re on trend. Whether gathered at one side, tied back in a lose ponytail or simply secured with a headband – this trend is sure to suit everyone.
Looking for a chic, everyday hair style to wear all fall long? If so, then look no further. A deep side parting teamed with a couple of hair slides makes for an effortless style this season.
5. Pony Club
Good news: this season’s go-to hair style is the humble ponytail! It doesn’t get much easier than that, right? Wrong. This season, ponytails were thoughtful and chic and boasted mirror-like shine and intricate side partings.
6. Mused Up

7. Hat Hair
If you, like us, try and fail to avoid the dreaded hat hair, take heart, as this season you’re on trend! As seen at Alberta Ferretti’s fall show, you can expect this look to be all the rage over the coming season.
Loose braids graced the runway at all four fashion shows this season, taking hold at Valentino and Jill Stuart. But instead of the romantic braids we’ve seen at so many season’s past, this year, micro braids were weaved along the hairline for a more dramatic look.
9. Effortless Style
There is nothing more chic than effortless style. Let your hair fall naturally and keep in place with GHD Final Fix Hairspray.
