Why You'll Be Securing Your Pony at the Nape of Your Neck From Now On
We’re not surprised that the women consistently at the front of the fashion pack—Ashley Olsen, Diane Kruger—are already rocking the hairstyle dominating next spring’s runway shows, including Derek Lam, Jil Sander, and Altuzarra. For starters, it’s easy. Even the shortest hair can be pulled back at the nape of the neck, and it doesn’t matter if it’s messy, sleek, or somewhere in between: it’s its casualness that makes it so damn cool. Need proof? You’ll find plenty of it, above.
The actress-turned-designer pulled her long hair off her face to show off her impeccable makeup at Estee Lauder’s launch of their new fragrance, Modern Muse, in New York.
Not surprisingly, Olsen’s look mirrored the one Mark Townsend built at her Elizabeth and James presentation earlier that week. "Everything that I know about texture, and I appreciate about texture, came from Mary Kate and Ashley,” he says. “They love hair that looks like you could do it yourself. They love any kind of accessible beauty—all of the looks that they do in their shows come from their own style.”
At Reed Krakoff’s show, hairstylist Guido Palau used Redken’s Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine ($40) for an almost lacquered finish.
