12 Hair Trends That Fashion Week Designers Stole From The Internet

Thank goodness you can’t copyright a hairstyle. Here’s more evidence that trends perhaps aren’t originating from the runways.

1. Punky Streaks

The youthful pops of punky hair color coupled with Oscar De La Renta’s old-lady frocks was a refreshing oxymoron. Maybe next season there can be an Oscar De La Renta x Tumblr line.

The models at the Peter Som show had pastel rainbow highlights.

The Internet Version:

“Chalking” is a popular hair tutorial that’s all over Tumblr and Pinterest.

From pop singer Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which showed at Fashion Week this year.

The YouTube Version:

This sock bun video, posted in June of ‘09, has over 2 million views on YouTube.

3. Horse Weave Braids

Is This a Two-Minute Beehive?

Did Marc Jacobs totally lift Tavi Gevinson’s “Two-Minute Beehive” viral hit? At least hopefully he saved his hairstylists some time backstage….

5. Fishtail Braids

The Pinterest Version:

You rarely see fishtail braids in real life; they mostly exist on Pinterest.

6. Neon Hair

When you think of Marimekko, you normally think of fun Sixties-flavored geometric prints. Not raver hair.

It’s All Over Tumblr:

Every 15-year-old on Tumblr has neon hair.

7. Forehead Braids

From Emerson SS13.

Here’s a Blogger Tutorial:

It’s a popular instructographic as seen on Pinterest.

8. Heart-Shaped Double Braid

It’s an Ideal Wedding Hairstyle:

The heart braid is all over Pinterest and wedding blogs.

9. Headband Scarves
