Well, actually there was not a whole lot of diversity of hairstyles on the runway for the Fall 2011 collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. For a nation that is still in the economic doldrums, I suppose that the “severe” look is apropos. I know that fall hair is usually more subdued, but this is bordering on “coma.”
You’ve got your slick look with either a ponytail or bun:
Calvin Klein Fall 2011
Vera Wang Fall 2011
Then, playing on that, you’ve got either a middle part for the very brave:
Jason Wu Fall 2011
Michael Kors Fall 2011
Ralph Lauren Fall 2011
J. Mendel Fall 2011
Or if you like to live on the wild side, a side part:
Carolina Herrera Fall 2011
The only ones who played it different were:
Rodarte Fall 2011
Y-3 Fall 2011
I’m not sure anyone over 25 can rock the long, loose plaits.
I’m suddenly feeling sleepy. And possibly depressed. You?
