Just like my time-traveling DeLorean, the bodaciously bright highlights all over the runways in New York this week were taking me back to the future! — all the way back to 1997, when I was all about fatty-bo-batty chunks of highlighted hair. My coif was definitely BOLD and BRIGHT back then… I loved it, except when the streaks started red but ended up an unappetizing orange!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
Fashion Week: Funky, Chunky Haircolor
by Megan McIntyre, Daily Makeover
The big beauty trend for hair at Fashion Week was bright, chunky streaks of color that brought to mind punk-inspired street style circa 1996.
At the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 fashion show, Eva Scrivo for Wella Professionals custom colored hair extensions in shades of emerald, lapis, amethyst, navy and turquoise to replicate the rich jewel tones present in the collection.
Each hair extension was completely saturated with professional salon haircolor and then woven into the hair and styled, creating an element of surprise and intrigue when models hit the runway.
