5 Catwalk Hairstyles That Translate To Real Life

Just because we’re ordinary girls doesn’t mean we deserve ordinary hair but runway trends don't always translate into real life. Time for some hairspiration? From downtime ponytails to fairytale plaits on the S/S15 runway, L’Oréal Professionnel knows just how to tone down the loco and dial up the every day. Here’s five high end catwalk hairstyles that actually translate to real life. High end hair from Mon-Sun? Sorted.

Fashion week doesn't just mean major clothes envy, it means dangerous levels of hair envy too. That's why we're looking to L'Oréal Professional to get our tresses runway ready for SS15.

Introducing fashion's most wanted hairstyle trends on trial... every street's a catwalk right?

1. One trick pony

It was a pony show all round at SS15 fashion week. Whether you wanna go for the pulled out Parisian artist style, the sleek freak professional or bunched & boho, you're free to take the reins with this trend.

2. The fairytale ending

Romantic, low placed plaits paired with fresh faced, mascara-free makeup, that was the beauty memo backstage and we are all over it. Thicker up top and tailing off at the ends, this high end hairstyle lends itself to the early morning commute and cocktails after dark. Providing we're back at the stroke of midnight of course.

Note: No prince charming required.

3. Underdressed tresses

We love a hairstyle that gives us back those precious 15 extra minutes in bed and that's exactly the story that session stylists had to tell this season.

​They sent model after model down the catwalk with pillow-static buns and childlike texture. You know, that look that says, 'I've just pulled on that oversized fleecy knit that grandma made for me and haven't bothered to fix my hair.'

Schools out for summer but the hair regulations are going nowhere.

4. Baby got back

Just when you thought those wisps of baby hair at the nape of your neck wouldn't come in useful, this beautiful braided chignon made it happen.

Every hair serves a purpose with this dreamy style spotted backstage. Experiment with soft strands over the ears or tug some volume at the braid for a beautiful slept-in finish. It will make you look innocent even if you aren't!

5. All that glitters

If there's one look every party girl needs to try this season it's glitter wefts…of course. Rainbow glitter streaks and tinsel tinted strands sparkled down the runway to create the morning after the night before effect. And we've all been there haven't we?!
