The major theme of most of the hair for Spring 2014 at New York Fashion Week? Low-maintenance styling. How else could you describe the headbands, low ponytails, and just-throw-some-product-in-it wet hair that we saw coming down the runways? In today's Beauty Review, we're breaking down these three trends and telling you how to wear them.
As New York Fashion Week winds down, it's safe to say we're ready to wrap up Spring 2014 — literally. Simple and sleek, hair wraps have taken to the runway for a trend you'll be able to wear all year round (even to the gym). It's a minimalist style that takes minutes, if not seconds to recreate. To get the utilitarian look similar to models on the Vera Wang (pictured above) and Victoria Beckham runways, tie your hair into a low pony and add a basic black headband. If you're feeling like wearing your hair down, go modern bohemian with a few scattered braids à la Nicholas K. However you do it, this oversized hair accessory looks chic whether dressed up or down.

All over the New York Fashion Week runways we've been seeing wet, slick, matted hair that stuck to models' scalps and necks like glue. At some shows, like Prabal Gurung, it took a glamorous turn, while at other shows, like Band of Outsiders, the look was decidedly grunge.
And stylists weren't fearing product; Odile Gilbert for Kérastase used so much mousse in the hair at Theyskens' Theory that frantic PR girls were making mad dashes to pick up extra bottles at the eleventh hour. The overall look was wet with a definite sheen and so stiff you could bounce a quarter off it. Don't you just love nostalgia? Click through for some more!
Unless you've had your eyes and ears closed for the last couple of years, you'll be well aware that short hair is it. And by it, we mean, everyone is doing it. It's nothing new, of course — we've been seeing pixie crops on icons like Audrey Hepburn and Mia Farrow since the '60s — but 2013 seems to have brought a whole new, um, crop of celebrities to the short-hair social club. In the past month alone, Aussie beauty Isabel Lucas has joined Beyoncé and Coco Rocha in getting the chop, and she's never looked lovelier. To show our appreciation, we're looking back at all the stylish stars who embraced the loss of their long locks, and when. Some, like Natalie Portman, have even gone all way and shaved their pretty heads! Ready for a walk down memory lane? Jump in!
The undercut is not a new trend. In fact, it's a revival: versions of it date back to the Edwardian era, as well as the jazz age of the '20s and '30s. The shaven style continuously evolved, shooting back to popularity during the glam metal era of the '80s, and now is prominent in modern-day looks. Because we've seen a slew of celebrities showing off the look as of late, we wanted to explore the less drastic version — the braided faux undercut — sported on the likes of Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston, and Cara Delevingne.
Get your daily dose of beauty inspiration with our full breakdown, and decide for yourself if this is a trend you'd try.
