Normally, we’d call fauxhawks ‘pretty crazy,’ but given that we’ve seen this, this and this at Monday night’s Met Gala in New York City … they’re actually almost ‘pretty tame’ by comparison. However, when you’ve got Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and Julianne Moore all sporting similar hairstyles at the same major punk-themed event, you most certainly have a trend. One that we’re not sure we’d try, but that we’re loving on these stars.

Lopez’s gravity-defying look was a major departure from her typical waves and curls, calling to mind, perhaps, a long-haired, brunette Pink. Emily Blunt took an elegant approach to her hair, opting for some voluminous twists at the front leading to a messy updo at her crown. Stefani brought us (fittingly) back to her punkier days a bit, opting for a serious side-part and bangs to go with her topknot.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Morrison lifted her hair to new heights (though not THIS high) to contrast with her girly gown. And Moore’s poufy pompadour added at least three inches to the star’s petite frame.

Considering some stars totally skipped out on having fun with the night’s theme, we’re glad these gals at least unleashed the ’90s in their hair.

Do you have a favorite fauxhawk? Would you ever try the trend?
