Hairstyle trends like the oval layer and the bullet bob that have gained popularity on TikTok ensure that we never lack for ideas. At London Fashion Week, though, it’s safe to say that no one does hair better than the street stylers.

The city’s most fashionable residents are shot each season as they make their way to the events, and while their knee-high boots, vintage handbags, and incredibly beautiful trench coats give us wardrobe envy, we often find ourselves most taken by their hair.

In terms of hairstyles, 2016 brought us bottleneck bangs (a hybrid of curtains and a larger fringes), the ‘Sachel’ (a shag cut with layers, à la Rachel from Friends), and the ‘U-shape’ (said to make lengths look fuller). The AW23 cuts presented at London Fashion Week, however, are unparalleled.

This bob style is on trend in three ways: it’s short, it hits at the jawline, and it encourages movement and texture. It’s quite similar to the French bob 2.0, a popular hairstyle that was projected to explode in popularity this year by Buller and Rice cofounder and hairstylist Stephen Buller.
