    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.

    2. Sock Buns

    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
