Is This the It-Girl Haircut of the Season?

You may think that the runway is the best place to look for the next big beauty trends, and you're definitely half right. But one thing we've learned through our fashion week experiences is to always pay attention to the models—what they're wearing, what they're listening to, and, of course, their beauty looks. Think about it: Catwalker Soo Joo Park was donning platinum gray (and pastel!) locks before either became a major trend, and she's just one example of models being way ahead of the cool-girl curve.

So though we're only on day two of New York Fashion Week, we've quickly taken note of one cut in particular that we've seen both backstage and on the runway: a very Patti Smith-esque, shaggy chop with center-parted bangs. Unlike the sweet, bohemian-style fringe, this is about embracing your own wild texture. The result is very punk rock and just the right amount of subversive. We decided to call it at label-of-the-moment Brother Vellies's presentation yesterday, where nearly half the models were donning iterations of the same look. The rocker-girl chop might just be the next major haircut.
