At the Spring 2011 New York Fashion Week, the hair looks were as varied and inventive as the designs, themselves. But one trend definitely came out on top: whether the models sported high buns (think Chanel Iman at Oscar de la Renta) or a low ponytails, the look was girly, clean, and undoubtedly feminine. Check out our favorite hair looks of the week!
Oscar de la Renta
At Oscar de la Renta, models swanned down the runway in fancy, ladylike gowns befitting Upper East Side socialites—and the hair was the perfect compliment. Parted down the middle and swept up in a glossy, oversize bun, the look was beyond elegant.
At Carlos Miele, models casually mussed, loose ponytails that perfectly accentuated the breezy summer prints and beachy brights.
Inspired by ’90s style icon Carolyn Bessette, Narciso Rodriguez sent models down his runway wearing sleek, bone-straight blowouts with a deep side part. So chic.
At the Milly show, the hair was the perfect accessory to the colorful, graphic prints in the collection—think sleek, flatironed tresses topped off with a thick, textured cap.
At Lela Rose, the models sported one of the hottest trends du jour, the messy side-braid. Paired with a floral mini-dress and red lips, the look is easy, chic and fun.
At DKNY, models rocked side-parted hair swept into a low ponytail—clean, sleek, and impossibly elegant.
At Richard Chai Love, Chai showed slick hair that was as casually chic as his sportswear. Here, Rose Cordero’s tresses are slicked back, falling in loose waves. So fresh and modern!
At Ports 1961, designer Tia Cibiani sent models down the runway flaunting ’80-style big, fluffy, roller-set coifs. Here, Sedene Blake flaunts the Dynasty-glam look.
