Fall 2009 Runway Pushes Boundaries

Thank God that hair is fun again. As a hairdresser bigger is always better! Head-turning hair was seen on Fall runways included updos, bouffants, French Twists and even pompadours.

From French twists and chignons to menswear-inspired quiffs, classic ‘dos dominated at Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Ralph Lauren and more taking looks from the 40’s, 50’s and 80’s and updating them with new elements.
Hair with exaggerated fullness and volume raised the roof at Louis Vuitton, Luella, Prada and Versace. 

 Of couse with extreme hair usually comes extreme and bold fashion. The boldest glamorous accessories included Feather necklaces Crystal Statement Earings and even Metallic clutches. It is no surprise that one would pair brocade jackets with puffy sleeves. Leather, textured stockings and boots everywhere. Lots of boots. Even thigh highs mentioning a few: Gucci, Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra and my all time favorite this year Rodarte. I take a size 10! Hair and Fashion is a reaction to the times we’re living in. It’s strong, positive and forceful. It’s empowering to women. So go forth, be seen really seen and “be” a fashion statement.
