CHANEL, READY FOR TAKE-OFF

To go with the futuristic looks and silvery outfits conceived by Karl Lagerfeld, hair stylist Sam McKnight styled the models with hairdos seemingly blown out by the power of a rocket ship in the middle of the Grand Palais.

BOXER BRAIDS AT BALMAIN

Here, Sam McKnight – Balmain’s hair director – has created the perfect combination of boxer braids on the top of the head and straight, long locks pulled behind in a ponytail. A look fit for an Amazon warrior queen, it perfectly matches the brand’s A/W 2017-2018 collection.

THE WET-LOOK SIDE PARTING FROM LANVIN

Also seen at the shows of Rocha and Fay in Milan, this simple and elegant look has proven to be an essential part of the year’s catwalks.

THE BOWL CUT AT LANVIN

Also seen at Rochas’ show, the bowl cut is back with a fringe that reaches the eyebrows. To avoid that helmet effect, the stylists made sure to add texture and movement to the hair.

COLORFUL MICRO-BRAIDS AT MAISON MARGIELA

For John Galliano at Maison Margiela, Eugene Souleiman has reinvented our childhood’s braids by adding in colored strings that accentuate the natural beauty of loose, floating hair.

ROLLED-UP LOCKS AT PAULE KA

This rolled-up style designed by Delphine Courteille is elegance tinged with innocence. To get the look yourself, you need to separate out a lock of hair, roll it up over your head and attach it to the back of your neck.

THE NATURALISTIC AFRO TREND FROM PASKAL

Paskal, Neith Nyer, H&M Studio and Liselore Frowijn: Paris’s catwalks have confirmed this trend spotted previously in Milan – the hair is curled naturally and so perfectly expresses each designer’s personality.

THE FOLDED PONYTAIL FROM ROCHAS

Created by Paul Hanlon for Rochas, this style is full of surprises with a smooth ponytail folding back on itself. Spotted a few years back in 2011 at the Lepore show, this style is accessorized here with a velvet bow.

THE ULTRA-SHORT, SUPER FEMININE AND VINTAGE STYLING AT ANREALAGE

With an eye-catching wet effect, this ultra-short and vintage style was seen on the heads of this Japanese designer’s models, inspired by male hair cuts of the Roaring Twenties.

SWAGGER FROM DRIES VAN NOTEN

For its 100th catwalk, Dries van Noten has stepped back through time to the 1990s, playing around with a delicate fringe and natural curls. This trend was also on show at Saint Laurent.
