12 Hair Trends That Fashion Week Designers Stole From The Internet

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.

Did Marc Jacobs totally lift Tavi Gevinson’s “Two-Minute Beehive” viral hit? At least hopefully he saved his hairstylists some time backstage….

The Pinterest Version:

You rarely see fishtail braids in real life; they mostly exist on Pinterest.

It’s All Over Tumblr:

Every 15-year-old on Tumblr has neon hair.

7. Forehead Braids
