Loose and undone waves (aka model off-duty hair) are always going to be a stapled in runway shows. And MBFWA 2015 is no different. Models in lightly curled and loose waves flowing freely were all the craze at the fashion shows this year. This particular hairstyle was seen on Ellery runway shows at the MBFWA 2015.
Slicked Back, Wet-Look Hair
Slicked back hairstyles were prevalent in the MBFWA 2015 runway shows. However, Haryono Setiadi runway presentation had a sci-fi take on the wet-look hair by with its blunt comb-over pieces and slicked back ponytail. Trend experts cited an origami feel to these looks and we couldn’t agree more. The hairstyles showcased by models on the Tome runway show was fresh, edgy and modern. The hairstyle was a definite complement to the designs worn by the models.
Michael Lo Sordo also showcased another updo hairstyle trend with his models. According to Richard Kavanagh who did the models’ hairstyles, they wanted to showcase a strong woman but with a whimsical touch to the undone and effortless updo styles.
