If there’s any lesson we can take away from London Fashion Week Men’s Spring/Summer 19, it’s that a ’90s revival is in full effect. That’s right, the era of grunge, patchwork plaid and clashing patterns made its epic return—and hair was no exception. Designers reimagined the top hairstyles of the decade, giving each iconic ‘do a cool, modern edge. Check out three throwback looks that commanded major attention on the runways.
The Look: The Low Pony
Spotted At: Velsvoir
The couture at the Velsvoir runway show walked the line between preppy and grunge, with gritty ‘dos to match. But it was the loose ponytail, aka the ’90s version of the “man bun,” that stole the spotlight. Models with longer locks sported loose low ponytails with a few face-framing pieces that gave the overall preppy look a casual, “undone” finish.
The Look: The Mullet
Spotted At: Liam Hodges
An array of oversized sweatshirts, mismatched pattern work and layered Hawaiian shirts may have been the theme at the Liam Hodges runway show, but hair adopted a more grunge feel. The most notable ‘do? A slicked-down mullet that was all “business in the front, party in the back.” Though the runway cut may not be quite ready to transition into daytime wear, the gritty texture is worthy of an encore as it adds a cool, lived-in feel to a longer length.
The Look: Textured Crop
Spotted At: What We Wear
While the apparel at the What We Wear show offered a myriad of athletic-inspired apparel, models donned cropped styles that added unexpected edge to each sporty look. The shorter ‘dos showcased a hint of natural texture, but a slick finish added a more casual feel to the polished style.
