That’s right. Curls are red hot on the runway right now – it’s refreshing to see more and more variations of natural hair being embraced, so ditch the straightener and rock your real self. Let things run wild.

Taming your mane isn’t what this look is about, so we recommend a product that does the exact opposite, yet still keeps your locks in tip-top shape. And we love a brand that prides itself on inclusivity, offering a full range of goods that work for every hair type. Curl Cream, $30 at Balmain Paris Hair Couture

Fringe Festival

Remember when as a child you thought it was a great idea to cut your own hair? Well, congrats, the look that was born when you took a pair of scissors to your own fringe is now in fashion – and we actually really like it. Imperfection adds character, after all.

A fringe generally gets greasier and dirtier quicker than the rest of our hair as we tend to touch it more often – not to mention the fact that it gathers additional oil from your face, as it sits right on your forehead all day. Thankfully, all you need is a quick-fix powder that absorbs excess oil and impurities. Gold Lust Dry Shampoo, $46, Oribe at Mr Porter

Buzzed Out

Kiwi singer Lorde may have declared “buzz cut season” way back on her debut album in 2013, but based on what we’re seeing six years later, this super-short hairstyle continues to reign supreme.

Even though a clean-cut is pretty low-maintenance, don’t be fooled into thinking that you can skip-out on your grooming routine entirely. If anything, your exposed scalp requires even more TLC. Daily Fortifying Shampoo, $40, Baxter of California at Mr Porter. Daily Fortifying Conditioner, $34, Baxter of California at Mr Porter

Fret not. The return of the ’90s centre part is less Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys, and more Kurt Cobain from Nirvana. That makes this more of a two-in-one trend: seen on longer hair, styled more carefree. Again, think less pop and more rock.

To create this breezy look, opt for products that enhance texture and definition. You want it to look like you just got back from the beach, so it’s all about enhancing the natural form of your hair, and adding in a little rebel texture. Ocean Mist Texturising Spray, $30, Sachajuan at Mr Porter
