Here are the best and worst hair color trends from New York Fashion Week AW/Fall 2015. From messy to poofy, these hair color trends are what you want to be trying in Fall 2015!
If you’re into unnaturally glossy and dramatically beautiful looking hair, then this New York Fashion Week of Fall or Autumn/Winter 2015 was probably not the best for you. So many contrasting colors, and so many different hairstyle trends are being seen at the runway. Let’s dive right in:
Hair Color Trends:
Looks like dark hair will really be in next season, because lots of different shades were seen in that, ranging from dirty blonde, to dark browns to gothic black. Most models sported global color, but in some cases highlights in light to dark caramel were seen. So the best hair color trends are in the shades of brown.
Natural looking highlights are big in these collections. Lighter hair colors mostly included icy blonde shades.
1. Natural Undone Hair:
After the whole revolution of bringing naturalness into fashion, with models looking like everyday girls who don’t like to wear makeup or designer clothing, and lots of celebrities sporting natural-looking waves on the red carpet lately (Katy Perry, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively), and even this years spring collection with many natural hair looks, it isn’t really surprising to see our favorite hair trend on runway again. Some of the models had hair just naturally wavy, and some tucked loosely into the jacket collars and scarves, giving the casual everyday girl look.
2. Greasy Dirty Hair
Undoubtedly the most talked about hair trend seen in this New York Fashion Week, seen at Alexander Wang’s collection. The models sported dark gothic/ heavy-metal hair, with a clumpiness that is both edgy and rebellious.
3. Tied Hair:
Many designers had this look on their models, some with natural-looking hair loosely tied at the back with flyways and a beautiful natural messiness, almost romantic, and some very tightly tied, sort of stern teacher-ly look.

4. Super Sleek Hair with lots of Product:
Again, this was seen in multiple designers’ collections- such as Wes Gordon, whose models had hair with an almost flat-looking middle partition, a very adrogynous look, and some designers like Cushnie et Ochs had models with side-parted hair, pinned very firmly at the back.

5. Long Bangs with Wavy Hair:
Yet another natural-look we all like. While Alexander Wang’s models had unevenly cut very long bangs, some of which covered the whole face, Jason Wu and Tommy Hilfiger’s models had evenly cut bangs covering lots of forehead.

6. Big Poofy Hair with Flyways:
Adam Selman’s collection showed models with super tall and messy poofs with natural-looking wavy hair. We like how the poofs have lots of flyways and long side-bangs, too.
