While hair trends come and go from season to season, you can bet your front-row seat that silky, blown-straight strands will inevitably make an appearance each Fashion Week. But at the spring 2015 runway shows, bedhead and air-dried (albeit expertly tousled) tresses reigned supreme. Models at Victoria Beckham, Derek Lam, Vera Wang and more had cascades of loose and understated—if not slightly disheveled—locks. Late risers rejoice: Textured hair is in.
Backstage at Derek Lam, famed hairstylist Orlando Pita achieved the look by coating wet locks with Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray. He then rough-dried the hair—leaving it partially damp—and added subtle waves to front pieces with a styling wand. “I’m into people wearing their hair naturally and enjoying its beautiful quality and texture,” says Pita, who intended for the models to have flyaways as they walked in the show.
So sleep in that extra half hour, embrace your curls and waves—and part with the idea of being perfectly polished.
