The latest fall 2013 couture hairstyles were almost as inspirational as the couture creations themselves, which is why we’ve rounded out some of the hottest looks spotted at this edition of the Paris Couture 2013 Fashion Week. Though most designers placed the accent on the newest creations rather than on the beauty choices in some cases, the hairstyles were the ‘salt and pepper’ of the new looks. Perhaps the most notable example was Jean Paul Gaultier’s fall 2013 couture collection which abounded in unusual choices that got people talking.

Perhaps the most subdued hairstyles from the designer’s show was a beehive hairstyle with cool leopard motifs that left no room for doubt when it came to the source of inspiration. A definite edgy twist on the classics is always an eye-catcher and this was certainly true for the designer, who played with volumes liberally both style and beauty-wise. When he didn’t go for high volumes, he opted for bold hats and other hair accessories that perfectly completed his bold 80s inspired looks.

The ‘haute couture’ concept definitely wasn’t taken lightly in Oscar Carvallo’s couture collection which brought many over-the-top accessories designed to make a statement as well as an array of fabulous messy updo hairstyles that were anything but casual. Messy sophisticated updos might seem like an oxymoron, but this is exactly the beauty of couture: bringing together contradictory notions in a highly artistic, conceptual form. On the subject of sophisticated updos, the looks spotted on the Iris van Herpen runway proved incredibly appealing. The label chose sophisticated braided updos which proved minimalistic and ultra flattering in contrast to the designer’s avangardist creations.

There were also classy, romantic hairstyles, that are easy to replicate in real life and the fabulous Valentino fall 2013 couture collection was filled with feminine hairstyles that instantly oozed refinement. Low bun hairstyles softened with cute braids complemented the brand’s exquisite looks. A more youthful styling was preferred for the Atelier Versace fall 2013 couture line were messy buns were the norm. From ultra refined to edgy, the haute couture fall 2013 hairstyles proved memorable.
