Braids and buns are two of the most-used styles at fashion week because both are so versatile. Styled together, like they were at Bora Aksu, you have an unstoppable look. The style looks complicated and elaborate at first glance, but it actually isn't hard to try at home. If you have long hair, you can simply braid your ponytail and pin it to your head in an intricate, zigzag fashion. If your hair is medium-length or shorter, you'll want to add an extension to get the same maze-like look.

The Double Braids

French braids are so widely known because they're beautiful and make you look put-together even if you're wearing a T-shirt and distressed denim. Emilia Wickstead riffed on the classic style with two plaits that came undone at the ends. To achieve this look, using a styling lotion or serum is always key. We already know we're going to try this one out to save our next bad hair day.

The Easy Middle Part

Fact: simplicity never fails. We're all for DIY weekends in which we practice and perfect the craziest looks our favorite hair and makeup bloggers are serving up, but when all else fails, we always go back to a pared-down look. The middle part is timeless, and Peter Pilotto used it as a palette cleanser of sorts against his printed, embroidered, and boldly hued clothing. Restraint is always in.

The Rained-On Tresses

Is there ever a case in which getting rained on is cause for celebration? We didn't think so, but Christopher Kane has changed everything we previously thought about drenched hair. The slicked-down strands on his runway made wet hair look oh-so-good. Make sure you have some gel on hand so things don't get too crazy once your hair starts to dry.

The Supermodel Hair

Nothing beats the volume, texture, and shine of '80s-inspired hair—it was literally scrunched, teased, fluffed, and crimped to perfection. Topshop relived it all for the season with deeply undulating waves and an even deeper side part, for a real come-hither look. A curling iron or overnight braids will help you get the effect if you have a straighter mane, while opting to show off your natural hair if you have a curlier texture definitely sounds like the '80s thing to do.
