New York Fashion Week's Mane Event

Obviously, fashions are at the forefront of the runway during New York Fashion Week. But, the fun doesn't stop there. In order to fully showcase their fashions, designers have to work with top hair stylists to develop eye-catching looks that will complement their couture creations.

From Frédéric Fekkai's Flamenco Dancer-inspired sleek, yet voluminous chignons at Marchesa to Rita Hazan's salon stylist, Eddie Ngai's elegant and seductive, polished French twists at Farah Angsana to ravishing, ribbon-intertwined braided updo's at Rachel Roy, this year hair is taking center-stage at shows.

Whether it's a funky mohawk, red wig or a classic, simple style it's always a treat to see what talented hair stylists create to grace the catwalks.
