New York Fashion Week is in full effect! That's right black clad PR girls, their giant sunglasses, and the bottle service girls and baristas that keep them going strong have been joined by models, celebrities, influencers, and street style photographers in the city that never sleeps. But while the designer clothes on the runway are intended to be center stage we can’t shift our focus from the fabulous hairstyles presented at this year’s “Texture on the Runway”. A celebration of the curls, kinks, and coils that have long been absent from New York Fashion Week designer presentations this year’s annual show was presented by Texture Media and Sally Beauty Supply. Here are three ways you can incorporate the looks from this year’s show into your personal beauty routine.
1. Don’t Be Afraid To Mix Textures
One of the best things about having crotchet twists is that you don't have to commit to just one look. Usually that refers to being able to swap styles quickly but in this case it means being open to mixing textures in one style. Stylists added large fluffy curls to the back of braided hair to create looks that were fun and flexible. Achieve this by braiding the front of your hair and added our large Mckenzie curls to the back or adding a long loose braid.
2. Switch It Up With A Little Shimmer
My absolute favorite theme of the night was the gold toned “style and grace” created by stylist Key Glover! He took a literal approach to the term black girl magic by adorning models in glitter specked gold paint.
Depending on your profession that level of sparkle might not be appropriate on a consistent basis but there are many ways to ease this style inspiration into your everyday routine. Consider weaving some golden hair accessories into your braids or twists or covering them with some hair jewelry to add a little shine!
3. Embrace The Trends Through Accessories
The 90s are back! And if ill fitting overalls and oversized athletic jerseys aren't really your thing you can still get in on the fun! Accessories like backwards baseball caps and big earrings can take any hairstyle to the next level. Don’t forget modernized beads are your friends!
