Milan Fashion Week SS17 has come to a close, and what an inspiring week it has been. Milan Fashion week never disappoints and this year was especially relevant. We had the opportunity to see everything from the “Eye Candy” from Fendi, as well as bobbed wigs, and even asymmetrical shapes. Pretty much all of the hair at Milan Fashion Week made us very happy, but here are some of our favorites from this years shows.
Gucci | Milan Fashion Week
To begin, we have to pay homage to Gucci. We adored every single detail of this show, especially the hair created by Paul Hanlon. It really is all about being true to yourself , be whom ever you wish to be , be individual. That is what the hair was about, and with fashion as strong as Gucci thats an easy task. Enjoy this feast of avante garde hair from Gucci at Milan Fashion Week SS17.
Moschino | Milan Fashion Week
Another show we fell in love with the hair was Moschino at Milan Fashion Week. Mastermind behind the brand, Jeremy Scott always knows how to get everyones attention. A Barbie version of Linda Evangelista from the 90’s was the inspiration for the hair. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon custom cut wigs with a choppy fringe above the eyebrows. Micro fringe is having a huge moment in the limelight right now, as it is the trend of all of the fashion weeks thus far. That as well as the 80’s and 90’s influences. Final touches included soft and bouncy curls on the ends for a very playful effect. Here are some other variations from the show and backstage.

Prada | Milan Fashion Week
In addition, we loved the hair Guido Palau created for Prada at Milan Fashion Week. Guido created graphic bobs and opened up the face exposing the features with the help of 1 single bobby pin. The focus of this hairstyle was the strict and sleek side partings. The hairstyle was very clean and classic and made a great statement on the runway.
Fendi | Milan Fashion Week
Another favorite of ours, we are referring to as “Eye Candy”. Seems a perfect description for the hairstyle created by Sam McKnight for Fendi. The hair was inspired by Vanellope Von Schweetz, the cartoon candy princess from Wreck-It-Ralph. Acrylic bag studs were perfectly situated on the hair, creating an overall effect of young and edgy. The makeup created by Peter Philips was equally relevant and added an extra bonus of fun. Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid walked the runway and made this hair and makeup most noteworthy.
Armani | Milan Fashion Week
While all of the hairstyles were making an impact, we can’t forget to mention the hair that was created for Armani at Milan Fashion Week. The hair for this show definitely made a relevant statement. We love the bouncy asymmetry that was created. Want to learn how to create this hairstyle?
Prep the hair using our Iles Formula Finishing Serum. Simply draw all of the hair back sleek and smooth, keeping out a 1 inch section of hair on the part to use as a cover up. Next, direct the hair to the side that the hair weft will be secured, and braid the hair tight. Secure the braid flat so that it can be easily hidden by the weft of hair. After completing this step, attach the weft at the part. Finally, use the 1 inch section and direct it back to cover the weft. Secure that and there you have an asymmetric style that is ready for the runway.
In conclusion, we know that Milan Fashion Week typically brings an abundance of inspirations, and these were some of our favorites. We are noticing some big trends so far at each of the fashion week shows of New York, London, and Milan. Whats in for spring is 80’s and 90’s inspired hairstyles, and micro fringes.
