I always think you should get a haircut that makes you feel good; if shaving your head makes you feel good then that is the look you should be wearing. However, getting a cut or style based on what somebody says is trendy, can lead to unfitting looks. In this case, it’s a good idea to think twice or get a second opinion before taking the plunge. A recent fashion show may have brought brunette back into fashion, but the shape of the style surely proves not all runway styles were meant to be followed. Click the notes for more. –– Kelly Rowe

fendi coverThe Fashion Kaiser has done it again. Karl Lagerfeld showed his first ever haute couture collection for Fendi and it wasn’t just the extravagance of the chinchilla, sable, and mink hair that had me enamored. The hair on the actual catwalkers caused a beauty stir. Locks were styled with a deep side-part and pinned back to frame the face with a wavy. The length was then secured with a low pony in the back, giving the illusion of shorter locks. In a runway-world of rumpled and meh hair, it’s exciting to see a return to such elegance. You may recall Marc Jacobs went for a similar proper lady look for the fall collections. My trend alert sense are certainly buzzing.

If Jean Paul Gaultier is anything to go by, it’s time to practice vampire-inspired pompadours. The world’s top designers are currently wallowing in their brilliance at the Fall-Winter Couture shows in Europe and the eccentric French modiste has taken a ghoulish turn for the new season. From lacy Victorian numbers to body-con leather to jumpsuits, the dark and moody collection suggests women will be empowered, in control, and full of sexual allure in the fall season. The hair, meanwhile, is an avant-garde tour de force. See more images from the show in the style notes.
