We’ll Be Copying These Hair Trends All Season—Here’s How You Can Too | ELLE

Ready to unlock your best hair? The hair moments that emerge from fashion runways shape the trends for seasons to come.

Which is why we turned to the showstopping looks from Australian Fashion Week and chatted with Chris Hunter, Shark Beauty Hair Director about how to recreate these runway-ready styles at home.

So, grab your Shark Beauty tools (the official hair tool partner of AFW) and let’s dive into three head-turning trends you can effortlessly recreate at home.

1. Natural Minimalism

This trend is all about working with your natural hair texture to create effortlessly chic, lived-in locks. Seen on the runways of Albus Lumen and Beare Park, it’s a celebration of what your hair naturally does best.

“At both shows, we used the Shark FlexStyle Malibu with the diffuser attachment to dry the hair while maintaining its natural texture,” says Chris Hunter.

“This trend is about feeling you, but better,” says Chris.

The result? Soft, touchable waves and curls that exude an effortless, woke-up-like-this look. It’s about being your authentic self, with a polished twist.

2. Directional Roots

This trend is all about sleek sophistication. Carla Zampatti’s runway return brought this look to life, blending timeless elegance with a modern edge.

Start by using the Shark SpeedStyle and its diffuser attachment for that perfect runway-ready finish.

“Then, to achieve this look,” Chris explains, “slick your hair back towards the nape and tuck it into your collar. Use a strong hair gel to hold it in place, then pin and set.”

It’s the ultimate minimal-effort, maximum-impact look for those days when you need to slay effortlessly.

3. Romantic Mysticism

This trend, showcased by Alix Higgins, is all about dreamy, ethereal vibes. Think sleek edges, soft twists and a whimsical low ponytail.

To achieve this dream-like elevated vision, Chris created a twist on the left-hand side, sleek edges and smoothed hair into a low pony at the nape.

“Then using the Shark SmoothStyle, we created an S bend throughout the pony,” he explains. “This is done by wrapping the hair around the barrel to create an S shape.”

Simple and striking: Nail the Romantic Mysticism look.

This signature S shape adds a touch of magic, making this style perfect for when you’re feeling a little extra.
