The Ponytail

We were digging the laid-back retro vibes at Creatures of the Wind, especially the cool, unfussy hair. Odile Gilbert for Kérastase used a curling iron to create loose waves for a low ponytail with a large section left out in the front. This beachy style went perfectly with the show's soundtrack, which included "Don't Worry Baby" by The Beach Boys.

The Wave

The sexy, '90s-inspired wave at Alexander Wang is a look we've been trying to copy from the cool girls since high school. With the designer's "model off duty" muses as inspiration, Guido Palau for Redken used hairspray and a curling wand to create the texture.

The Wave

The fresh-faced beauties at BCBG walked the runway with a center part and a soft wave, giving the girls that "I just rolled out of bed" look that we love. The key to this style is making sure to avoid ringlets—use a very light touch when using your curling iron.

For the beachy look at Suno, Odile Gilbert for Kérastase pulled the front sections of hair over the ears and tied them back to create a "hair headband," and slicked down the top with plenty of gel.

The Wet Look

Stylist Paul Hanlon for OSiS wanted the girls at Phillip Lim to look like they'd been exposed to all of the elements—as if they'd been stranded on a desert island—and used mousse and a diffuser to create the wet, unkempt hairstyle.
