High-shine hair was a dominant feature on the international spring
runways, with designers such as Victoria Beckham, DKNY and Christian Siriano sending models down the catwalk with light reflecting locks.
Responsible for the resurgence of the pageboy cut, Wella creative director Eugene Souleiman placed wigs on the models at Jeremy Scott that were cropped into browgrazing helmets and styled to glassy perfection. Brad Lepper, Sebastian, creative director and owner of French Revolver salon, predicts high-shine hair and refined silhouettes will be at the top of
his clients’ wish lists this season. “These bold runway looks are filtering down into real-life trends,” he says. “We’re seeing a lot of smooth, sharp shapes coming through, big bold fringes arcing around the eye (influenced by Souleiman’s pageboy) and smooth and controlled waves which compact the hair down, giving you extreme shine. There’s still a lot of texture, as we’ve seen in summer, but it’s more refined, and
even the textural hairstyles have a loose shine as well.”
