Hair Trends for Fall 2011 from New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week only ended last week. Is it too early to talk about trends? Maybe... but we did see some interesting ideas emerging on the New York runways.

Rodarte, Y3
Coming Undone
Rodarte's prairie girls were a favorite on Twitter. The hair was side-swept, slightly messy and incorporated a mini fishtail braid.

Models at Y-3 sported thick french braids that were woven loosely and imperfectly.

Michael Kors, J. Mendel

Relaxed Glamour
For Michael Kors' 30th anniversary show, Orlando Pita, inspired by the 90's, pulled hair back into an effortless side bun. He said it was meant to look as if "a girl had done it herself."

At J. Mendel the hair, pulled back with a center part, was simply elegant.

Marchesa, VPL

Statement Chignon
The look at Marchesa was romantic and edgy, the hair erupted into a voluminous textured chignon at the back.

VPL hair stylist Recine re-imagined the chignon into an origami form. The hair was folded intricately, quite like the clothing in the collection, creating a silhouette with impact.
