Street style or catwalk: what are the latest hair trends? We looked around in New York, London, Milan and Paris, and are presenting hair highlights from each fashion metropolis. Freshly styled, tucked, coloured or cut

  • The international fashion weeks are long over and the time for drawing conclusions has come: minimalism is dead, long live minimalism. You probably thought that years of restrained hair styling would be displaced by something a bit more extravagant? Far from it: the hairstyle trends accompanying us into the new season are comfortably natural, soft and casual – exactly the way we like it!

    Our absolute favourite look: long hair in soft waves styled with a centre parting, as seen in the fashion show of designer Giambattista Valli in Paris (photo above). The clear hairdo, straightforward cut and simple style leave us with plenty of leeway for beauty and fashion experiments. Dramatic, wild and colourful experimentation is the order of the day. But reserved nude makeup with red lips is also fantastic with the hairstyle of the moment.

    Extreme looks stay in the dressing table for 2017 while fancy layered cuts, elegant slick hair and nicely undone ponytails are on display. Nevertheless things will be far from boring as hair styling is spiced up with sophisticated messy half buns, the new Mia Wallace bob and exciting colour contrasts (grown-out dark hairline). Very exciting yet eminently wearable. Only the trendy military cut demands a bit more courage but makes a clear statement: minimalistic and individual!

At Fashion Week in New York, designer Georgine wowed audiences with exactly this powerful look along with two more trend promises: a bob coloured light blonde with a dark hairline and a shorter fringe that looks like you cut it yourself.
