Fashion Week may be all about the clothes for most, but here on team Who What Wear Beauty, our eyes are laser-focused on the hair and makeup. After all, so many interesting beauty trends are born on both the NYFW runways and the chic streets just outside.
This season, we couldn't help but notice a spectrum of intriguing hair colors pop up on runways like Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui, as well as on editors and influencers in attendance. The patterns show that 2019 is going to be a year when fashion girls experiment with short cuts and bright pastel shades (which might sound like an oxymoron, but you'll see what we mean). Think mint greens and cornflower blues—"derelict Easter egg," Who What Wear's co-founder Hillary Kerr fondly labeled them.
Curious to see the coolest hair colors we discovered at fashion week this season? Just keep scrolling.
Pink hair was all over fashion week this season. We spotted the playful, fruity hue on everyone from Michelle Li to actress Maisie Williams to runway models walking for Sies Marjan.
This androgynous, muted blue looks especially fly on shorter hairstyles. We loved seeing it on the men of A-Cold-Wall's F/W 19 show, as well as cool attendees like Refinery29's Mi-Anne Chan.
Prediction: We are going to continue seeing a lot of this curly hairstyle plus deep pumpkin-orange color combo throughout 2019. The Marc Jacobs runway (see Gigi below) proved it really, really works.
Anna Sui's show was a kaleidoscope of anime character–esque wigs, but the color that caught our eye the most was this icy lavender.
Fashion girls are obviously no strangers to platinum blonde, but the versions we saw this week seemed to take it one step up a notch, offering more of a proper white. On super-short haircuts, the look is especially modern.
We are living for influencer Ryan Norville's recently dyed mint shade. With short hair and a statement earring, it is both whimsical and chic.
