Helmet Head Hair at Alexander McQueen AW/11—Love It or Hate It?

Twice a year we circle the globe to learn all about the top beauty trends from the world's leading hairstylists and makeup artists. While backstage at fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris with some rather eccentric designers, we happen to see some of the craziest (but utterly cool) things. Case in point, Alexander McQueen's AW11 runway show.

Guido Palau, Redken's Creative Consultant, hid each and every model's hair underneath several silver and black Goody clips. Says Guido to Glam, “Overall this season we created very wearable looks, but this is not one of them. Often we talk about Fashion Week hairstyles as being more fantasy and aspirational, and the look we created today at Alexander McQueen is just that. When developing this look, I took inspiration from old paintings of women going into battle and different helmets from the middle ages, representing a very strong, confident woman.”

We wholeheartedly agree—whoever tries to pull this look off on the sidewalk today would absolutely have to be a strong, confident woman.

What about you—would you try this look? Do you love it—or hate it?

We’re not for everyone. So, Love us? Great. Hate us? Fine. Not sure? Undecided? Don’t care? That’s where we’ve got a problem. It’s time to get off the fence, get us on a sandwich and make a choice. Are you Miracle Whip? Pick a Side. Get a sample. Go to MiracleWhip.com.
