SPRING/SUMMER 2017: Fendi’s Cartoon Hair Trend
Last week at Fashion Week, Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi presented a look for spring/summer 2017 that had social media buzzing: glittery lips and spunky candy princess hair accessories. The look was inspired by the cartoon Wreck-It Ralph!

Backstage, hairstylist Sam McKnight affixed Fendi’s acrylic bag studs to bobby pins and placed them in models’ hair at random, mimicking the sugar dots on Wreck-It Ralph’s Vanellope von Schweetz’s head. With a lineup of coifs ranging from bouncing pigtails to asymmetric ponytails, the overall effect was designed to conjure youth and grit—and a hint of manga. “It’s tough and not too romantic,” McKnight said.

5 FACTS ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS
Here's what you need to know before you book an appointment!

1: Extensions don't only add length. You can choose to add volume instead (or in addition to length), which is perfect for fine, limp or thinning hair.

2: Turn that bob into a mane! If your existing hair is at little as 3 inches long, you can get extensions, although the extent of your transformation may be limited if your hair is very short.

3: Extensions can be braided in, glued in, woven in, or — if you only need a follicular boost for a special event — clipped in.

4: You can also add highlights or color with shades ranging from mild to wild!

5: The process isn't painful, so it shouldn't hurt a bit.
