NYFW Trend Report: Part Two: Straight to the Point

I don't usually post on hair trends, however the way that designers choose to style the models' hair, makeup and nails for fashion shows is a key element that can make or break a collection!

I couldn't ignore the pattern that was developing as I watched the various New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter shows: sleek, straight hair (often parted down the middle) was a constant!  Often achieved with a flat iron and pomade or hair spray to tame any flyaways, this simple hair style allows the clothes to speak for themselves.

At Yigal Azrouel and Tracy Reese, models' hair was allowed to have some unfinished and multilayered ends, to enhance the laid-back cool of the designs.  Perennial American sportswear fashion houses DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger chose to keep the straight, center-parted hair off of the model's faces to complement the fresh and polished looks of their collections.

How do you switch up your hairstyle to accompany your personal style?
