The hair was full of drama at Malandrino, where the models' tresses were intricately wound on top of the head, combined with three hairpieces and accessorized with hair nets. The nets also served as veils for some of the models.

Redken's Yannick D'Is was inspired by a young pretty girl with perfectly tousled hair. Models' hair was prepped with texturizer and then curled around a one-inch iron. When the whole head was curled, stylists twisted it up into a bun while the makeup was done and then hair was released and shaken out for the naturally tousled look.

To get this tousled look that matched the Bohemian clothes, hairstylist Leonardo Manetti used a texturizing mousse before blow-drying hair and then added random bends to the hair with a curling iron. He finished by teasing the hair and lightly brushing over it.

Hairstylist Orlando Pita, who called this look "young and easy," achieved the style at Carolina Herrera by first adding volume to the top of the head, then pulling the hair back into a low bun and securing it with flower-embellished pins that matched the shoes in the show.

Bumble & Bumble stylist Laurent Philiano aimed for sophistication with this off-center chignon on the models at Reem Acra. To recreate this look, start by making a deep side part and smoothing the hair into a low, side ponytail. Then twist the ponytail into a bun and secure it with pins and hairspray.

The hair was styled sleek and straight at the Donna Karan show. While clips were used in the process, hairstylists were able to create the stick-straight look minus any indentations by adding tissue between the hair and the clip before the clips were removed.
