Debate This: Are “Mohawk” Or “Mohican” Hairstyles Kinda Offensive?

Debate This: Are "Mohawk" Or "Mohican" Hairstyles Kinda Offensive?

This morning, my girl friend, who is a beauty writer, sent me an email with a link to a Stylist UK post about the hair and makeup on the models for the Issey Miyake show at Paris Fashion Week. The runway models had their hair pulled high up into sleek ponytails crafted into a ridge coming out the top of the head. Stylist UK called the style — dubbed “the Mohican” — “a high-maintenance take on the punk classic.”

Mohican (also called Mahican) is obviously a reference to the Native American tribe from what is now the central New York/Massachusetts area. (Mohegan, which sounds similar, is actually a different Native American tribe from what is now Connecticut.)  At some point in the history of punk rock, punks adopted the Mohawk hairstyle and the “Mohican” style, too. (I’m sure we’re all, of course, familiar with Mohawks — another hairstyle worn by punks that clearly takes it’s name from the Native American tribe, the Mohawks.  These days, there are other variations, like fauxhawks and ponyhawks, which Wikipedia tells me is what Sanjaya Malakar wore on “American Idol” back in 2007.) The hairstyles get referenced as being “punk,” but their true original source is Native American. As my friend wrote, “I know that in the UK ‘mohican,’ can refer to a punk rock hairstyle, but I’m still giving this major side-eye.”  That got me thinking.

Jessica Chastain & Kate Moss Compete For Cutest Couple

Jessica Chastain and Kate Moss

Paris has been awash with fashions and celebrities and celebrity fashion designers for the past week, so it makes sense that International Fashions Model and Sublime Cigarette Smoker Kate Moss would be there, with her husband Jamie Hince. But also there? Almost An Oscar Winner Jesssica Chastain, with her beau, the very Italianly named Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.

Because I am basically an overgrown high-schooler, I want to know: Who do you think is the cuter couple?

Which is the cuter couple?

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Day 9

Aaaaand it’s a wrap! After New York, London, Milan, and finally 9 long, show-filled days in Paris, Fashion Month is over. We’ll certainly miss the constant flow of impressive new looks, both on the runway and in the streets… but we can’t imagine that the globe-trotting editors and fashionistas who have to actually cover each individual show in person share our sentiments. Fashion can be exhausting, you know. We’re finishing off Paris with Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and Elie Saab. Until next season! Keep reading »

Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst are such an ugly couple. They make me sick. At least these two fuggos found each other, because nobody else would want to date them, am I right? No, but seriously, how cute is it that Garrett escorted his lady to the Yves Saint Laurent show? Dreams, baby, dreams[Photo: FameFlynet]

We’re covering the past 3 days with Alexis Mabille, Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Ann Demeulemeester, Balmain, and Alexander Wang’s debut collection at the house of Balenciaga.

Regular Dresses Too Regular? Try Some Hairy Ones Instead

Fingernails Instead Of Hair
This woman has a rare disease which makes her grow fingernails everywhere. Watch »

When we talk about the hair at fashion shows, we generally mean the hair on the models, not the hair on the clothes. Charlie Le Mindu certainly didn’t have convention in mind when he presented Metal Queen, his “haute coiffeur” collection, on the runway in Paris during Couture Week. “I wanted to do a collection that was inspired by the women who scare me and have a lot of charisma. So that’s why the models look like kind of sexy monsters — I want them to scare men,” said Le Mindu of his line, which features, yes, human hair (culled from extensions, no scalping necessary) protruding from the designs in every which way. Sure, why not? I mean, don’t you ever wake up in the morning and say to yourself, What I really need in my wardrobe is more human hair? [WWD]

Models Two-By-Two Down Escalators At Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Locomotive
Marc Jacobs sits first class with this incredible stunt. Read More »

Marc Jacobs’ designing is often rife with a pastiche of cultural references from the past. His latest collection for Louis Vuitton is no different, directly pulling from mod ’60s styles. While the collection was pretty, and pretty unsurprising, its display was anything but: Jacobs sent his models down one of four specially painted escalators, which gave the show the appearance of being at a very, very high end mall.
