Thanks to TikTok trends like oval layers and the classic bob, we’re certainly not left wanting when it comes to haircut inspiration. But it’s fair to say that no one does hair better than London Fashion Week’s street stylers.
Each season, the city’s most stylish are photographed on their way to the shows, and while their
knee-high boots, vintage handbags, and seriously chic trench coats give us a case of wardrobe envy, we’re often most enamored of their hairstyles.
Last season served up bottleneck bangs (a mix of curtains and a fuller fringe), the ‘
Sachel‘ (a shag cut meets layers, à la Rachel from ) and the Friends U-shape haircut (said to make hair look fuller).
Click ahead for all the haircut inspiration you’ll ever need, straight from London.

Hairstylists predicted that bitty bangs (a full fringe scattered with a handful of gaps) would reign supreme this season — and here’s picture proof they were right. This fringe style works beautifully on thicker hair types, especially curls and waves. Photographed by Mariana dos Santos Pires.
This seriously cool cut occupies a cozy space between a bob, a shag, and a mullet thanks to the short length, choppy layers, and face-framing fringe. Photographed by Mariana dos Santos Pires.
Beautiful protective styles like this one are taking center stage at LFW, both on the city’s stylish streets and on the runway, as spotted at shows like Mark Fast and Annie’s Ibiza.

This blunt bob and straight-across fringe is serving futuristic vibes. Wear yours sleek or spritz in some sea salt spray for a wet look, which will haul it into much cooler territory.

Fashion journalist Susie Lau is the ultimate full fringe inspiration. This cut is long and grazes the very tips of the eyelashes, but that means it can be parted in the center for a ‘60s-esque, Brigitte Bardot feel.

This bob cut nails three trends in one: it’s all one length, hits the jawline, and promotes movement and texture. It’s exactly like the French bob 2.0, which Stephen Buller, hairstylist and cofounder of Buller and Rice, predicted would be huge this year.

The ’90s are calling! This sleek cut takes its cue from the C-shape layering technique, which has gone viral on TikTok. These expertly cut layers (which often start at the mid-lengths) cup the face, making hair look thick, voluminous, and long. Photo by Raimonda Kulikauskiene/Getty Images.
Bold hair color is huge this Fashion Week, but why stick to one shade? These cobalt and neon green braids make a statement. Photo by Raimonda Kulikauskiene/Getty Images.
This is what Neil Moodie, editorial hairstylist and founder of Neil Moodie Studio, would call the ‘super bowl’ haircut. The top boasts soft, rounded edges and textured layers throughout the mid-lengths, making it more mullet-like.

This slicked-back bob with flicked ends is equal parts chic and edgy. Use a mousse to style your hair into place rather than something like gel, which will harden. Photo by Raimonda Kulikauskiene/Getty Images.

Who said the mid-length haircut had to be boring? Offset yours with a similar piecey fringe to give it a ’70s feel. Photographed by Mariana dos Santos Pires.
Blunt cut? Tick. Slicked back? Check. This haircut trend was spotted everywhere, especially at David Koma, courtesy of Toni & Guy using Label.M. Photographed by Mariana dos Santos Pires.
This chopped bob looks to be inspired by Wednesday star Jenna Ortega. We like the juxtaposition of the wavy lengths and straight, full fringe.
Midi-cuts are going to be everywhere ahead of spring. We’re especially in love with this copper shade.
“The collarbone cut is so popular right now,” Tyler Moore, stylist at Live True London told R29 recently. Subtle layers will enhance curly and wavy hair textures.
Blunt ends and a blunt fringe give this bob cut a sophisticated edge.
This is what hairstylist Neil Moodie would call the ‘mid-length drape.’ It consists of grown-out curtain bangs and invisible layers to give volume to waves.
This is a perfect example of the trending j-ob: a sliced bob which hits the jaw and is worn with a strong center parting.
Ultra-long braids were favored by street stylers and models alike, at runway shows such as Yuhan Wang.
