It goes without saying that Alexander Wang has become an unconventional trendsetter when it comes to beauty, producing daring, yet wearable hairstyles that set the trends for the season. While most designers who showcase during New York Fashion Week produce the same mirroring looks of messy, undone waves and minimal, iridescent makeup season after season, Wang's models debut show-stopping transformations that leave even some of the most familiar faces on the runway unrecognizable. From bowl-shaped radical cuts, to bleach blonde surfer waves to boy-like pixies, Alexander Wang proves time and time to be the ultimate hair visionary of New York Fashion Week. Before the designer shows off Spring 2018 tonight in Brooklyn, here's a look back at his best hair transformations.
Fall 2017: Boy Cuts
During the Fall 2017 show, hairstylist Guido Palau made a dramatic switch from the surfer bleach blonde locks of Fall 2017 and produced "boyish, basic haircuts" that could have been done "by your mother, your brother or your boyfriend." Guido's haircuts left models like Catherine McNeil and Irina Kravchenko unrecognizable on the runway, who chopped off off their flowing brunette locks for tousled, boy-like pixies.
Spring 2017: Bleached Locks
Playing with both cut and color, hairstylist Guido transformed models into a sea of platinum blonde babes at the Spring 2017. With an 70's surfer inspired vision behind the look, models showcased their choppy, platinum locks in a sleek, wet beachy waves.
Fall 2016: Radical Color and Cuts
As models walked down the Saint Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan at the Fall 2016 show in an edgy and rebellious manner, the hair seemed to represent just that. With models like Katie Moore and Binx Walton who sported washed out colored locks in outrageous styles from auburn red bowl cuts to ombre, feathered strands.
