Models graced the runway for New York Fashion Week which took place September 7–14, 2017. Collections from famous designers such as Marc Jacobs, Marchesa, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and many more were featured. A-list celebrities often sit front row at these events prepared to rock the latest fashion and hair trends in the upcoming season. Fashion week is the time when celebrity hair stylists like to show off their creations and predict the upcoming hair trends. Below are the six hair trends spotted at NYFW and the inspiration behind the hairstylist’s looks.

70’s Inspired


“It’s a grungy, bedhead, downtown, 1970’s rock and roll vibe” hairstylist Guido Palau explained. He used a spray wax to “give the models a rocker edge and to emphasize their own hair’s texture. And I’ve left the ears showing with a center part, keeping the length and back a little bit messy to showcase the effortless vibe.”

Vivienne Tam

“The hair has a slight wave to it and is airy, soft and 70’s” says stylist Jon Reyman.

Decorative Pony Tails


Hairstylist Matthew Morris used L’Oreal Professional products to achieve this irregularly parted hair which was drawn into a low, pulled through ponytail.

Fenty Puma By Rihanna

Hairstylist Yusef gave models “athletic cool, bad girl, graphic with a little bit of edge hair.”

Public School

Hairstylist gave models a tied back and textured ponytail.


Brandon Maxwell

Hairstylist James Pecis left the model’s hair alone and said “Everyone was approached differently and given a tousled look that still felt clean and expensive.”

Adam Selman

Hairstylist James Pecis gave models piecey beachy waves by adding waves throughout the hair with a curling iron.

Funky Buns

Helmut Lang

Hairstylist Holli Smith created a tight, twisted bun with a face framing curl that was both edgy and commanding.

Cushnie et Ochs

Hairstylist Justine Marjan gave models an off-kilter top knot.

No Consistency

Jeremy Scott

The models in Jeremy Scott’s show walked out with all different types of hairstyles such as disco ponytails, sweet buns, and others rocked beachy waves. “This season the statement is, there is no statement. The hair is relaxed and beautiful. I want every girl to look in the mirror and like the way they look, then leave the show wearing the look” says hairstylist Eugene Souleiman.


Hairstylist Antonio Calero gave models either drapey and deconstructed french twists to broken waves studded with flowers.

The Wet Look

Prabal Gurung

“We interpreted the hair as if a woman has just gotten out of a swimming pool or the ocean, and just ran a comb through her hair, leaving the hair looking glamorous and gorgeous,” says hairstylist Anthony Turner.


Hairstylist Antoinette Beenders gave models smooth hair and wet fringe. To help the bangs stay in place, she actually applied hair gel straight to the forehead.

Creatures of Comfort

Hairstylist Justine Marjan describes her look by saying “Using mouse and hairspray achieves an almost sweaty, dirty hairstyle, as if you are coming off of the beach or from a safari.”
