The hair looks at Toronto Fashion Week seem to be drawing just as much attention as the actual clothes.

First, Pink Tartan's show on March 18 featured blond, 60s-inspired wigs, drawing criticism on Twitter for looking 'fake' and 'cheap.'

And now, on day two of Toronto Fashion Week (also known as World MasterCard Fashion Week) Sid Neigum debuted a very daring hairstyle on the runway at David Picault Square on March 19.

Fashionistas took to Twitter to react to the insanely high, leather-bound ponytails. Reviews were mixed, with some critics and fashion editors raving about the Sid Neigum show and the severe, samurai-inspired hair look, including Elle Canada, who tweeted:

"Samurai meets the Matrix vibe at @SidNeigum. Thinking about doing my hair like that tomorrow. Thoughts?"

Others seemed confused by the dramatic 'do:

"Why your hair gotta be like that gurl? #wmcfw #toronto #sidneigum"

Still others thought the style looked more silly than chic.

"Hehe, lollipop hair. #wmcfw"

Although the sky-high hair took centre-stage via social media, the collection itself was not overlooked. Editors and fashion bloggers were markedly impressed with the minimalist designs, smart tailoring and leather accents.

What did you think about the Sid Neigum Fall/Winter 2013 collection? Would you sport a samurai ponytail?
