PAINT BY NUMBER- Alexander Wang and Altuzarra set a new Hair trend

Last Fall presented a grey hair trend that caught on from the Chanel runway and we saw everyone from Tavi to Kate Lamphear and many more wash the grey into their hair.

This season we see paint in the hair channeling a Modern Tribal feel.  Alexander Wang used white paint in the hair of his all white clad models while Altuzarra preferred brighter colors to contrast his neutral collection.

Altuzarra Spring 2011

This new look reminded us of a few editorials from the archives of 10 and French magazines.

Below are some selects from a shoot featured in French magazine that have a similar use of color and exude a tribal/warrior vibe.  We immediately thought of these images when we saw this look on the runways.

I can’t help but wonder if we will see more of this painted hair trend on the runways and possibly the streets of London and Paris.  We will have to wait and see….

    The kids in the pic are from India. There is some kind of festival there every year where people have this powder paint that they go crazy with! Sounds like a good time to me….
    I love the painted hair thing. So fun!
