From the neat ponytails at Proenza Schouler and Prada to the super-slick separated strands at Givenchy and the '80-style swept-over looks at Saint Laurent, the runways officially decreed the death of the centre parting.

So dig out those straighteners, invest in a good hair oil or styling gel and start teasing your tresses over. Got short hair? Perfect. If not, never fear. A low-slung, slicked-back, side-parted ponytail is the perfect way to embrace the look. You can even wear your hair down in a very “now” wet look—provided it’s got enough product not to move in a breeze.

But remember, super-slicked hair like this means an increased focus on your face, so contour your cheeks and remember to add a slick of lipgloss—or even a bright red matte lip if you’re feeling fruity.
