For the Laid Back Girl
Heatless Gloss Rope Braids at Gabriela Hearst
Gabriela Hearst went carbon-neutral for her Spring 2020 show and that included the hair. That means no flat iron, blow dryer or curling iron touched the models’ tresses. The heatless approach resulted in a painlessly simple gloss rope braid you can give a go at home with some OUAI Matte Pomade and OUAI Hair & Body Shine Mist.
Wash ’n’ Wear Curls at Son Jung Wan
Wake up, wash and go if these wash-and-wear curls are calling your name. Seriously, it's that easy to recreate the bouncy ringlets at Son Jung Wan. Simply reach for OUAI Curl Jelly or OUAI Air Dry Foam and you're good to go.
Low Bun with a Streak of Color at Rebecca Minkoff
Busy and booked babes on the go, this easy low bun will be a staple in your beauty routine. The look aimed to challenge what it means for women to be and look professional, making it a realistic representation of the chic business meeting hair you'd see today. Reach for some OUAI Super Dry Shampoo and an elastic—that's it.
Pulled Back with a Hair Comb at Tory Burch
Channel your inner Lady Di with a pulled-back blowout from the Tory Burch runway. The effortless hairstyle is a celebration of the 80's subculture that Princess Diana inspired. All you'll need is a good heat protectant AKA OUAI Memory Mist Heat Protectant, a round brush and a hair comb accessory.
For the Ponytail Lover
Leather Wrapped Ponytails at Proenza Schouler
Another nod to the 80's, these sleek, dramatic ponytails from Proenza can cause some serious whiplash. Snatch a piece of faux leather fabric or material and make it your own.
Silk Snatched High Ponytails at Area
There's something about silk organza coating our strands that feels so luxurious. If the DIY route isn't your deal, create a variation of the Area ponytails by incorporating a solid color silk scarf in your look. For the finishing touch, lay down flyaways with OUAI Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets.
Scarf Weaved Braided Ponytails at Jonathan Cohen Studio
Mark our words: we're getting a head start on spring 2020 with the scarf-entwined braided ponytails from Jonathan Cohen Studio. Backstage, the designer said he was inspired by a Mexican serape blanket and the surf culture of his San Diego hometown. For a frizz-free braid, apply a dab of Matte Pomade between your fingers and palms, rub together then start braiding.
For the Accessories Queen
Lavender Boho Braids at Alice + Olivia
Boho femme hippie hair was all the rage at Alice + Olivia. The whimsical style started with flat iron waves, continued with micro braids and ended with individual pieces of fresh lavender. To get this effortless texture at home, finish the look with OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray.
Glass Bead Headbands at Ulla Johnson
High shine bead accessories or shells are like TSA pre-check for any sleek bun, braid or ponytail—they instantly get your mane where it wants to go which is a sophisticated spring break hairstyle. After creating your desired foundation, apply DIY accessories using eyelash glue.
Diamanté Head Wraps at Khaite
A string of sparkling diamanté falling over the crown of your head? It's called fashion. Take your boring hair-down 'do to new heights with a pearl or gem-encrusted hair accessory like the ones that graced Khaite. P.s. the look paid homage to a similar hairstyle that Princess Stephanie of Monaco wore to a charity ball in 1987.
