Model Makeovers (& Makeunders) You Need To See To Believe

It's that time of year again: Fashion Week! While we here at R29 have been preparing for the big week by organizing our calendars, drinking green juices, working ahead so we can prepare for days of fashion-show madness, and huddling under our desks in anxiety, the stars of the shows — the models — have also been quite busy...at the hair salon!

Yes, it seems that Fashion Week is the perfect time to debut brand-new looks, since many models will be endlessly snapped on the runway, by iPhones backstage, and even as they stomp the streets of New York. This is the most fashionable way to debut a new 'do, isn't it?

We caught up with Aura Friedman and Roxie Darling, two colorists who were responsible for some of NYFW's biggest hair overhauls — and even a couple of tiny little tweaks that somehow made all the difference. Click through to see the transformations.
