Hair Trends Coolhunting: episode 1, London Fashion Week

September 19th 2017

Hair is a language; hair has become a fashion accessory, a statement for the very eclectic fashion tribes around the world. Our team has taken to the streets of London (and next week, Paris!), walking around the various fashion shows, to “hunt” and shoot some personalities with strong hair signatures; we’ve asked them how they talk ‘hairdresser‘ and get the cut and color they actually want: Instagram has become THE new board of inspirations that they share with their hairstylists; the hair colors have become a playground, a canvas to express their own personality. From pastel to deeper shades, the local hairstylists are the alchemists of this Instagram generation.

Yes, the platinum blondes jollied along; but as London has its roots in grunge and rock, the blonde was reinterpreted through faux hawks and shaved hair. Afro hair was also extremely present, with many trendsetters expressing their ambitions for dreadlocks in the coming months, mentioning Jaden Smith as a source of inspiration. Earth was not enough for the fashion planet; the team spotted many space buns. The East London scene, melting vintage looks and somehow steampunk references, was also playing with colorful hair.
