From faux fringes at Acne to rocker waves at Alexander Wang, the killer beauty looks from international fashion weeks have been flooding our feeds (and causing general Insta envy) for the past month.
Our resident hair and makeup expert Isabella Iasenzaniro runs us through her favourite looks - and which you can expect to be trending in the coming seasons. Ready your manes, ladies.

Fringes (fake, of course) had quite a big presence at Paris Fashion Week this year, and I loved it. A fringe with no commitment - what more could you want? I loved both Acne Studios and Neith Nyer’s approach; while Acne kept theirs a little more on the classic side with sleek sides and a red lip, Neith Nyer gave it a cool girl feel with a high pony and a bit of fluffiness on the sides for an added ‘woke up like this’ vibe - and I adore that. I’m all for the 'I tried, but not really' hair.

It’s the wave we all want. It looks wash and wear but totally (most likely) isn’t. You’ll always see something like this feature on the runways of Alexander Wang - paired perfectly, of course, with ‘no make-up, make-up’. Quick tip: for those who are blessed with natural waves or curls, try letting your hair dry naturally, but as it dries, use your fingers to stretch it and pull the wave out to soften it. It takes time, but it’s definitely worth it - plus it doesn’t require heating tools. You may need to tweak slightly with the curling wand and then spritz some beachy texture spray to finish - I love using ELEVEN Australia's Seat Salt Texture Spray.

I love how the vibe of this look can be totally interchangeable - make it messy and textured and it becomes cool, slick it back and automatically it’s sophisticated and sexy. The biggest mistake you can make when recreating this is not making the part deep enough – the deeper the part the better! It needs to have a slight comb over feel.

I love this look, it has that DIY vibe, but it can really look quite elegant or cool, depending on the setting. It's almost as though you’ve had your hair done the day before, and then slept on it. I love how Balenciaga have kept some strands of hair out at the front too, so as when the models walk it floats and creates a beautiful effect.

In line with his signature style, Marc Jacobs went for a wet look mane that is part 'out all night partying', part glam (think pearl and crystal slides) and part IDGAF. Add smudged eyes, dewy skin and berry lips and you've got an unforgettable look.
