The Fashion Week Diaries: Experimental Strands At Thakoon, Bensoni, And Lela Rose

Tired of the same ol’ same hairstyle? We found some serious hair inspiration yesterday at several New York Fashion Week shows. Granted, you may not want to braid a scarf into your hair or spray paint your strands silver, but these wild manes are sure to get your creative juices flowing.

CRAFTY BUNS AT THAKOON: At Thakoon, strips of knit fabric were twisted through models’ hair into funky french rolls.

FRIZZY FAUX HAWKS AT BENSONI: Bensoni teamed thigh high boots on feet with pompadoured messy braided faux hawks. To emphasize the edginess of the style, some models had the sides spray painted silver.

PIN-UP GIRL WAVES AT LELA ROSE: Lela Rose models wore Old Hollywood finger waves in the front and a modern ponytail in the back.
