There was no holding back this season as the world’s finest designers and backstage professionals sent a plethora of double-take inducing beauty looks onto the world’s runways. From shimmering colour and sparkling shine to ravishingly embellished hairstyles, striking silhouettes and imaginative braids, the looks celebrated a collectively upbeat, creative and uncompromising spirit. It’s time to go big or go home.
Keep a Low Profile
Pin your ponies and chignons low if you please…
This season’s tails, tucks and chignons are best worn sleek, stylised and – most importantly – low on the nape of the neck for a finish that is fabulously pulled together. Frizz and flyaways need not apply… An excellent blowout is a must to achieve polished styles like these.

Curls, corkscrews and kinks have never been cooler.
From iterations that were full and frothy to gently rippling and liquid smooth, waves are where it’s at right now. Neither over-styled nor naturally messy this lot felt luxe, nonchalant and suitably carefree, while session stylists experimented with textures from wet-look to high-shine and everything in between.
