Turn heads: 5 hair trends to rip off from the runway

From crimping to braiding, these are the catwalk hair trends that industry experts think you should try

"I am excited to see an element of fun, sexiness and sophistication making its debut in the hair trends for Autumn/Winter '18," says Andrew Young, education manager at ghd South Africa.
"Inspired by the '80s and '90s, cropped chopped cuts with wind-swept fringes and natural texture are being celebrated again - with even more pumped-up volume. The big, bouncy blowouts that were once so "uncool" return triumphant.
"The poker-straight wet look has a fresh injection of volume and texture, making it softer and less harsh.
"For a more glam and understated sense of sophistication, the low smooth and sleek ponytails from the '90s are always a winner."

"There was a flicker of braiding seen at almost every show this season, whether in the form of a sleek, athletic ponytail or an accessory-like side braid," says Young.
"The braid remains a fashion element, and incorporating a fish tail or a Dutch braid into your everyday look is a must."
