Runway Hair That You Can Wear

Vancouver Fashion Week showcased the hottest hair trends—and Revlon's experts reveal how to create the looks at home

As Revlon Professional’s runway insider for Vancouver Fashion Week, I had an exclusive backstage pass to get the scoop on this season’s top hair trends

Models on the Vancouver Fashion Week runway turned heads this season with the help of Revlon Professional stylists, the exclusive hair sponsor of the event. Hair trends for fall/winter 2016 include undone, messy waves, bohemian braids and sleek updos.

“Each unique hair look is the final statement of the designer’s vision and Revlon Professional is pleased to provide the products and expertise to help do that this season,” says Jessica Stevenson, marketing director for Revlon Professional Brands Canada. Products used on the models include: Style Masters, UniqOne All In One Treatment, Equave, NutriColor Creme and Revlonissimo.

Half-up braided crown

This is a done-but-undone look that’s perfect for a girl who wants to keep it natural with a kick.

Step 1: Start just behind the ear and begin a reverse French braid around the back of the head. Stay above the ear and nape leaving the hair below out. Continue to work around the head going back to the starting point. Open up the braid to enlarge it as you work.

Step 2: Tuck the end of the braid underneath the beginning of the braid and secure with pins. Visually assess your balance and suitability.

Step 3: Grab random, medium sized sections to curl with a large barrel. Pre-spray each section with modular spray.

Step 4: Tousle the curl and slightly dishevel the braid.

Bohemian waves

Create waves with a flat iron for this relaxed beachy look.

Step 1: Grab a flat iron. Randomly select smaller sections. Repeatedly open and close the iron quickly as you feed hair in an S formation. Continue around the head till all the hair is done.

Step 2: After cooled, brush everything down starting with the ends.

Step 3: Spray modular hairspray to hold.

The top roll

This is a quick and easy solution to a beautiful hair roll with the option to keep it clean or slightly broken down.

Step 1: Back comb the top, sides and back lightly to the mid-shaft of the hair.

Step 2: Stand on the side. Grab all the hair and brush smoothly into your hand at a 45-degree angle from the head as if it were a ponytail.

Step 3: Grab a can of Revlon Professional Shine Spray as you are holding the hair and place the can at the ends. Slowly while keeping tension, roll the can and hairspray towards the hair. Once you are at the head rolled in, secure the roll with U-pins. Test security.

Step 4: Wiggle the can out of the hair roll slowly. Make any adjustments necessary after checking profile balance.

Sleek pony

This simple sleek ponytail is perfect for days when you want your hair off your face while keeping it professional.

Step 1: Decide on ponytail placement. Brush all the hair into your hands.

Step 2: Spray a generous amount of modular spray into roots and comb back cleanly.

Step 3: Once clean, firmly grip ponytail and secure with an elastic. Smooth ends.

This is beautiful clean way to dress up your ponytail for evening.

Step 1: Refer to sleek ponytail

Step 2: Lift ponytail up and lay flat against the head (so it points north). Hold. Put two bobby pins into a small elastic band. Secure ponytail tail against the head about 1 inch from ponytail base.

Step 2: Grab the ends of your updated ponytail and smooth. Use a small elastic to secure the ends. Be gentle.

Step 3: Roll ends nicely and secure to base. Spread the width of the chignon out. Lightly secure the four corners of your shape with U-pins.

Step 4: Spray from far away and use your Revlon Professional can to smooth fly-aways.
