Bieber Fever Hits the Runways


That hair!  Fashion designer Barbara Tfank has joined the ranks of Justin Bieber’s admirers. So much so that “The Bieber” as a hairstyle made its debut at New York Fashion Week. Tfank cited the pint-sized singer’s February Vanity Fair cover as the beauty inspiration for her February 14th show. “Bieber looks fresh, innocent and youthful,” she said. An interesting combo given that her usual clientele includes ladies like MIchelle Obama and Vanessa Redgrave. For the show, Shiseido’s Hirofumi Kera created eight wigs in dark brown and dark red to resemble the tween idol’s infamous style.  “It [the hair] reminds of the Beatles. It has a sixties reference that works well with my clothes,” Tfank says.
