We take a look at some tutorials to help you try out the haute couture hair trends fresh from the runway at this week’s Paris shows.

Viktor & Rolf – Minimalist Bun
Viktor and Rolf returned to the runway with their first haute couture collection in 13 years. The Dutch designers chose simple minimalist up-dos to match the messy elegance of their all-black gowns. In this short video, blogger Eman shows you how to get a similar celeb-inspired look.


Giambattista Valli – Sleek Slickback
Norwegian blogger Martine Sorthe shows her technique for slicking back her hair, using copious amounts of mousse, a hairbrush and a comb. The look was sported by all the models at Valli’s Paris show earlier this week and creates a sleek, modern profile which can be perfect for dressy occasions.


Valentino – Center Parting & Braid
The girls at Valentino had their hair parted in the center with a slim headband braid running across the top of the head and tied together at the back. The center parting is the easy bit, but this video by Braiders of the Lost Art explains how to braid yourself a headband.
