Just when we thought the pink (or blue or green) hair trend might be dying down—the look first started gaining traction over two years ago after Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2010 show, after all—Lady Gaga debuted pastel-streaked hair last week. Then, today in Versailles, hairstylist Sam McKnight sent the Chanel Cruise 2013 models out onto the runway in pastel-colored pageboy crops, solidifying the fact that the trend still has legs. Although it’s not visibly apparent from the front, McKnight actually created what he called a “bob-top”: “wigs dyed grey pastel then sliced in half to reveal low pony with massive bow,” he explained on Twitter, to go with the show’s punk Marie Antoinette theme. Makeup artist Peter Phillips painted tiny interlocking-C logos on the models’ faces, meanwhile, a tribute to Marie Antoinette’s signature beauty mark.
