She's come undone: The trend seen at Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, and Dolce & Gabbana for Spring 2012.

Not a hair out of place? Not for spring.

The beauty trend that has taken the runways by storm has turned all things polished on their heads. Instead of sleek chignons or smooth ponies (which were runway stars in their own right), stylists gave girls a veritable pile-up.

In Milan, Fendi dove into the trend with a teased-to-perfection bouffant. For a look that was less ’50s beehive and more mad scientist, wisps of hair were pulled out on all sides of the poufy ‘do for even more volume.

Similar flyaways showed up at Roberto Cavalli. Though delicate gold headbands held back the ‘dos, plenty of escapees flew free—as though the girls might have hopped off the back of a motorbike.

Similar wispy looks appeared on the Marni runway, while Versace’s Versus line showed models in loose, thrown-back ponytails.

At Dolce & Gabbana, stylist Guido Palau had the ultimate Italian woman—Sophia Loren—in mind, creating a loose, textured French twist that looked ready to come undone at any moment.

The artfully disheveled style made appearances in New York as well, from Thakoon's piece-y updos (in candy colors!) to Chris Benz's mega-teased hair to the crimped, curled, and otherwise over-the-top coifs at Douglas Hannant.

And while Diane von Furstenberg's beehives were more ladylike, a few wispy pieces here and there kept things far from perfect.

The best part about this trend? Even without Palau’s expert handiwork, it's easy to pull off. A pin here, a pin there, some hairspray and voila!
