It's not all sugar and spice on the catwalk! Recent runway shows have delved into dark and dramatic territory with grunge-inspired looks. Here's how to add a little edge to your hairstyle.

The Choppy Fringe

Fringes of all shapes and forms are hugely popular at the moment – and this choppy, brow skimming fringe adds instant cool-factor to any look. To reenergise the fringe throughout the day, just spritz the roots with a dry shampoo like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Morning After Dust and tousle with your fingertips.

Goth Half-Up-Do

Half-up half-down hairstyles have a reputation for being more of a girly-girl look. Can that! This goth take on the hairstyle still is romantic but with an edge – and striking the balance is all in the details. Start with natural textured lengths and an imperfect centre part and simply gather into a low pony at the base of the neck.

Unfussy Waves

The hallmarks of any grunge-inspired hairstyles is a 'devil may care attitude' – and these undone waves have it in spades! Once again, an imperfect centre part is the starting point for this look. Sections of the hair are then curled at random before being brushed out and misted with a matte finish holding spray – try L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wildstylers Crêpage De Chignon.

Hard Core Accessories

Any hairstyle can be instantly transported into grunge territory with a well-chosen accessory. A leather-look headband is a simple way to make even simple hairstyles suddenly edgy. Or, go all out with an oversized spike-shaped embellishment – follow the catwalk's lead by piercing it straight through the middle of a flawless chignon.
