Rad Or Bad: Is Greasy Hair Glam Or Gross?

We were pretty thrilled by all the uncomplicated coifs on the fall runways, like messy ponytails and brushed-out waves. But designers like Alexander Wang, Cushnie et Ochs, and Acne took the lax approach to a new low, showing tresses that were more week-old than truly wearable. These well-lubed locks gave us hair-raising flashbacks to early '90s rockers and that kid who never showered in middle school (was that us?). When Chloë Sevigny arrived looking like a Greaser on The Runaways red carpet, we worried that the oil-slick trend was spreading. So, will you, too, be swearing off shampoo or should dirty strands clean up their act?
