10 BEST HAIRSTYLES IN FASHION
You don’t have to sport a signature hairdo to make it in fashion, but judging by these well-coiffed insiders, it might help you get ahead in the industry. Read on for our 10 favourite trademark styles in fashion.
10. ANGELICA CHEUNG
As editor-in-chief of Vogue China for the past ten years, Angelica Cheung is a powerhouse on the fashion circuit who always makes an impression with her asymmetric bob, worn at different lengths over the years, but always with a short fringe.
9. SUSIE LAU
At London fashion’s cutting edge is blogger Susie Bubble, always with her trademark long straight black hair either up in a neat topknot or left loose, her eyes peeking out from under that heavy, thick fringe.
8. FRANCA SOZZANI
With her long blonde waves, you might think Franca Sozzani’s hair more suited to a mermaid than to the editor of Italian Vogue. Her secret to its beachy success? Never blowdrying it.
7. FERNANDA LY
Models generally need their hair to be malleable for whatever a client wants, but not Fernanda Ly. Her candy-coloured locks nearly stole the show at Louis Vuitton and have also won this model heaps of Instagram followers and some serious fashion cred, too.
6. GRACE CODDINGTON
Grace’s triangle of vivid red hair has come to be the American Vogue creative director’s calling card, though it must surely help to have world-renowned hair stylist Didier Malige as your partner.
5. KARL LAGERFELD
While fashions change, you can count on Karl Lagerfeld to stay the same – dressed in a monochrome suit, with black sunglasses and his constant white ponytail. Keeping his hair fuss-free allows the Chanel designer to work his magic without hassle.
4. SUZY MENKES
You’ll always recognise Suzy’s silhouette on the front row, with its little quiff crowning the top of the critic’s head. She claims she only did it to keep her hair out of her face while writing, but it’s since become an iconic look.
3. DONATELLA VERSACE
Nothing says high maintenance glam like a head full of bleached blonde, straightened locks. And Donatella’s might be the straightest, blondest of them all, a signature look that is perfectly in step with the house of Versace’s ritzy allure.
2. JULIA SARR-JAMOIS
Stylist and senior fashion editor at i-D, Julia turns a lot of heads with her beautiful natural hair worn loose and big. According to Julia, all she has to do is air-dry it to get such volume and body, and it seems to work like a charm.
1. ANNA WINTOUR
Anna Wintour loves her manicured sleek bob so much that she’s had it in play since the 1980s. The “power bob” is a timeless choice for the American Vogue editor-in-chief, meaning that while styles change, her look remains as chic as ever.
