Springtime’s biggest hairstyle? Take notes from Chanel’s spring 2023 show, where insouciant cool-girl waves floated over models’ shoulders as they walked the runway. From soft waves to more defined curls, in true Chanel style, the hair was perfectly polished—not a flyaway in sight.
While the fashion house is known for its love of barrettes and hair bows, this time, there were few hair accessories to be seen. In their place were minimalistic center partings and low-key curls that felt more easy-breezy than in seasons past. On the front row, Vanessa Paradis and Sadie Sink both showed off their own take on the cool-girl waves, proving it’s a trend to try for women of all ages.
A glossy red lip brought all the glamour, punctuating otherwise bare, healthy-looking complexions. It was a beauty look with just the right hint of je ne sais quois—one that could have been borrowed direct from the most chic residents of Paris.
For a similar style, get your hands on a pair of straighteners and try the S-wave technique. A hairdresser favourite, all you have to do is take a piece of hair, create an S-shape, and then press the straightener plates over the curve to set it. And voila, there you have it: hair worthy of the Chanel runway.
