Every New York Fashion Week the Murphy Gozzard hair team love devouring the live feeds and behind the scenes action to spot all the latest trends that will be filtering into the Paddington salon over the coming season. This year’s Spring/Summer 19 looks did not disappoint. Here we asked the hairdressers at the best salon near you for their favourite 3 looks from the runways. Here is our breakdown;
Has there ever been a more whimsical display of runway hair than the Rodarte show? In a continuation of the Met Gala’s obsession with all things holy, this show was held in an Orthodox cathedral in downtowns East Village. Models looked like they had walked out of a painting with their haute couture styles. 48 different looks were created for 48 models with fresh roses hand woven one by one into the hair. This was further accented by Art Deco-inspired crowns and intricate metal headpieces. The hair look was predominantly tumbling, romantic curls, brushed out for a loose and organic finish, petals cascading down the models backs.
Not shy when it comes to setting hair trends and when it comes to this show, he surely set some kind of record when it came to ambitious undertaking. In what is surely the first time ever, 37 models agreed to undertake a full colour transformation for the show. Rather than relying on wigs which can obviously look fake and affect the overall look of the show, the models sported a kaleidoscope of metallic pastels in green, lavender, peach, blue, yellow and pink. Literally every single look featured a unique colourway with most in a cotton candy finish., We loved that these looks were more vintage than over the top unicorn thanks to the metallic undertones.
The 90’s seem to have been a constant force on the runway looks so it was refreshing to see the 80’s take centre stage as it did at the Escada show. Inspired in part by the revival of their iconic 1989 logo, the looks reminisced classic looks of the era. From Princess Diana to Pretty Woman to double breasted power suits- it was all here. The hair looks were split amongst classic 80’s blow waves and bouncy corkscrew curls. The blow waves featured the subtle side part quiff, but it was the curls that were the showstopper. Forget brushed out natural, these were true perm-esque ringlets!
