Rick Owens’s flowing raven locks are as much a part of his image as his gym-carved body or his goth-leisure wardrobe. But the hair, like so many things in the fashion industry, is a mere illusion. (Insert gasps here.)

Owens’s hair is also naturally curly, so he gets quarterly Japanese straightening treatments that take three hours each. Take a look at the process (complete with feline assistant) in the video below.
