Hair Care

By Rebecca Goldberg

The fall fashion shows have recently wrapped in N.Y. and L.A. So, we decided to take this opportunity to get acquainted with the hairstyles of the not-to-distant future. As you’d no doubt expect, both coasts offer up some very different selections.

Let’s take a gander at what some of the biggest names in fashion have in mind, up top.

New York’s 90′s Wave


Long and wavy hair stole the show at Betsey Johnson.


Meanwhile, at the Chris Han show, the long and straight trend was seen on all the models. It seems the 90s are back in New York, ladies!


Calvin Klein brought in the straight, severe, pulled back look, to match his tailored lines.


One Michael Kors model managed to pull off the bleach blonde, boy-short chop. A brave woman, indeed. This cut is actually gaining popularity with celebrities.

Headpieces galore were seen at both shows. Here’s one that’s very New York, subdued and practical. Nanette Lepore pulled out the stops – stylewise – with this headband.

Los Angeles


Alvin Valley portrayed true L.A. style, wavy, loose and carefree with his piecey updos.


Equally piecey, but much more ‘superheroesque’ is the look at Imitation of Christ. Also, take note of the black lipstick.


Literature Noir’s take on the relaxed updo looks very hip in contrast to the hard lines and studded empire waist shown here.


L.A. sass is out in full force at the Monarchy Collection. Here, the model’s hair is piled high on top of her head, and free flowing.


Yeah, apparently the 60s are back. Larger-than-life buns are not to be outdone by over-sized flower print dresses by Sue Wong.

It seems that the theme of this fall’s hairstyles is experimentation – at least in L.A., anyway. We New Yorkers, myself included, have a little catching up to do when it comes to fearless, gravity-defying style.
