While most of us are preparing to kick the fall season into high gear, designers at New York Fashion Week are a bit ahead of us. They're showcasing the latest trends for the upcoming seasons and the hairstyles are everything we want and more. No V.I.P pass? No problem, we've got you covered, mama.

Check out the best hair trends we spotted at New York Fashion Week. Plus, how to recreate the looks (because you deserve a little TLC too, mama!).

1. Decorative ponytails at Christian Siriano

There's nothing more fun (and easier!) than rocking ponytails, especially when you're figuring out day five of not washing hair. Models at Christian Siriano upgraded the look with minature crystals scattered throughout the style.


Here's how to create the look at home:

1. Prep dry hair with hairspray, then flat iron until super smooth.

2. Gather back half of hair with more hairspray then brush with a smoothing brush and tie with elastic cord at the base of the neck.

3. Leave out two tendrils around the face then repeat with the rest of the hair.

4. Tie elastic cord around the length of the pony.

5. Use wig glue and tweezers to gently place crystals on the hair.

2. Flowers in messy braids at alice + olivia

When you're busy caring for an infant or shuttling your toddler to play dates, wearing a side braid adorned with miniature pearls and crystals seems like the last thing on your to-do list. But, getting the uber-pretty style is much easier than you think.



Here's how to create the look at home:

1. First smooth out the hair with a hairdryer, then separate hair into two even sections with a clean center part, traveling all the way from the top of your head to the bottom.

2. Loosely reverse french braid either side, keeping the hair near the hairline and above the ear.

3. After securing each braid, adorn them with self-adhesive flowers or pearls in random spots throughout the braid.

3. Middle parts at 3.1 Phillip Lim

Middle parts are a subtle, yet cool and modern look that play up this season's polished look.

Here's how to create the look at home:

1. Create a perfect center part and then dampen hair with water to prep for styling.

2. Apply small amounts of styling foam and began drying down sections of hair on either side of the part to ensure the hair stayed flat against the head and behind the ears.

3. Saturate the mids-to-ends of the hair with a style prep and then dry those pieces with a diffuser to hold the style in place.

4. Finish with hairspray to lock in look.

4. Full swept bangs at Veronica Beard

This season, it's all about the 60's vibes, with tons of volume at the top of your head that falls into a perfectly undone style. Put simply: A deep side part and full swept bang is easy for mamas on-the go. "The [swept bang style] is meant to embrace each woman's natural texture—straight, wavy or curly," says Kevin Hughes, Moroccanoil Artistic Director.


Here's how to create the look at home:

1. Create a deep side part and a sweeping bang in front of the face adding volume throughout the hair.

2. Then create broken S waves throughout hair using a flat iron.

3. Only at the back of the root use a crimping iron to create lift and volume at the crown.

4. Smooth hair over the bouffant for a seamless finish.

5. Finish with hairspray.

5. Scarf twists at Kate Spade

If there's one thing we can relate to, it's the theme of the Kate Spade show—women going to the flower market on a weekend morning. If you're into playful, carefree hair, you'll love the rope braid buns and colorful scarves. It's perfect for mamas looking to add a hint of pizzazz.



Here's how to create the look at home:

1. Apply a thickening spray to prep hair.

2. Part hair in center.

3. Blow dry the front pieces away from your face. Pull hair back into a low ponytail and secure.

4. Twist hair into a rope braid with a wide-tooth comb.

5. Wrap braid into a twisted bun. Tie a scarf around the bun, securing at the bottom.
