The Most Bizarre Hairstyles From Men’s Fashion Month

Behold, the “Rick Owens beehive”

When it comes to fashion shows, the grooming is as important as the clothes the models are wearing as they do their little turns on the catwalk (... on the catwalk, yeah). Designers specifically choose hair and makeup that best represents their vision for the season. For the most part, when it's bizarre, the effect is 100 percent intentional.

Now that we've had a few days to collect ourselves following Paris Fashion Week—including that time we got gold grills with Amar'e Stoudemire—and can reflect back over the whole of Europe's Men's Fashion Month, it's those intentionally crazy moments that stick with us. More than the comeback of silk shirtsall those hats in Milan, or London's crazy shoes, these up-dos ask intriguing questions about just what the designer's vision was and how it relates to the contemporary state of style, prompting statements that start with the letters F, T, and W.

Or is it the inverse? You decide.
