It might be easy to feel intimidated by the dramatic hairstyles taking over your Instagram feed during this month’s upcoming Fashion Weeks, but that’s no excuse to get lazy with your look. We delved into the hottest hair trends of the Fall/Winter 2018 season and matched each style with the products you need to make them possible.
Trend 1: Slicked Back

Running late in the morning? No problem. You can lock in this fresh-out of the shower look in place by working a dollop of Oribe Creme for Style through wet hair. This product’s firm yet flexible hold will ensure your look stays in place without looking stiff or hard to the touch. For those with thicker hair, coat a hairbrush with a light dusting of the Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray and smooth the look to tame frizz and flyaways.
Trend 2: Textured Top Knot

Thank you Chanel for another quick, easy look perfect for anyone who can’t seem to break up with their snooze button. To achieve this tousled updo, spritz a good measure of TIGI Session Series Salt Spray into damp hair before drying on low heat. This will add much-needed body and texture. Use your fingers to scrunch ends before winding hair into a loose bun at the crown of your head. Fasten with bobby pins and you’re good to go.
Trend 3: Turn Up the Volume

Big hair is back! Channel Jackie O with this rockabilly bouffant by smoothing a quarter sized amount of Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Mousse Styling Formula into wet hair. Loaded with vitamins, this moisturizing formula works to protect hair from heath and styling damage. For added volume, blow dry hair upside down on high heat using the Bio Ionic 10X UltraLight Speed Dryer . Tease hair back with a fine tooth comb and pin into place.
Trend 4: Flip Out

Sleek blow-outs will always be in style. We loved how Dior accentuated long layers by adding bouncy flips to the ends of models’ tresses. Add a nickel-sized amount of BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT Acai Daily Smoothing Serum to towel-dried hair to lock in moisture. Blow dry hair on medium heat using a round brush, alternating pieces towards and away from the face for a more natural bounce. To finish, warm a small amount of Keratin Complex Shine Vibrant Shine Serum between your palms and smooth gently over strands for a megawatt sheen.
