This season, Fashion Week hairstylists sent models down the runway breaking all the rules – and we were thrilled. This time around, it was all about natural, realistic hairstyles that give you a cool-girl look and require barely any effort to achieve – a far cry from over-the-top, unattainable looks seen at past Fashion Week shows. Frizz? Check. Roots? Check. Piece-y bangs? Bring it on!
So, if you're someone who feels more inclined to lean into your humidity-susceptible hair or obvious regrowth, then your time is now. Read on for some of this season's best cool-girl hair trends.
HAIRSTYLES: 4 COOL-GIRL HAIR TRENDS
When you retire your hair brush (possibly out of laziness), an interesting thing happens to your hair: It can start to sprout wispy bits of frizz that circle your crown like a halo. For some, this frizz situation may seem like a major beauty no. But now, it's the byproduct of glorious bedhead – the cool-girl's new favourite hairstyle. Embrace this look if it happens to you or achieve the laidback look using texture spray.
GROWN OUT ROOTS
Not everyone has time in their schedule to get their roots touched up every few weeks (especially if you aren't a natural blonde!). But instead of fretting when you get that three-inch grow-out, this season's hair trends say, embrace it. Half-and-half hair is just a step away from ombre, so why not give it a try rather than hitting the salon next time you see a bit of root? Not only does this save you money and a trip to the salon, it gives you that laidback, cool-girl look that works perfectly with an equally cool, fall leather jacket!
Not a fan of this season's textured hair trend, or the volume that a blowout gives you? You're in luck, because hair that falls a little flat on top is the epitome of a cool-girl look. Add a touch of texturizing spray to the bottom half of your strands for grit and body, and you'll have the perfect bedhead in seconds.
Anyone with a cowlick can identify with this struggle. How are you meant to rock the perfect fringe when your hair refuses to lie straight across your forehead? The answer is simple: You aren't. Embrace your split bangs (or however they may fall) and lean into the piece-y fringe hair trend. There's something sexy about a little imperfection, and when paired with a short, choppy cut, you'll have one edgy, runway-approved look.
