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 Internet Version:
“Chalking” is a popular hair tutorial that’s all over Tumblr and Pinterest.
From pop singer Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which showed at Fashion Week this year.
The YouTube Version:
This sock bun video, posted in June of ‘09, has over 2 million views on YouTube.
4. The Beehive Ponytail
From the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
Is This a Two-Minute Beehive?
Did Marc Jacobs totally lift Tavi Gevinson’s “Two-Minute Beehive” viral hit? At least hopefully he saved his hairstylists some time backstage….
5. Fishtail Braids
Fishtail braids were all over the Tory Burch show.
The Pinterest Version:
You rarely see fishtail braids in real life; they mostly exist on Pinterest.
6. Neon Hair
When you think of Marimekko, you normally think of fun Sixties-flavored geometric prints. Not raver hair.

It’s an Ideal Wedding Hairstyle:
The heart braid is all over Pinterest and wedding blogs.
