Clean but Messy Hair: Chanel vs. From

By Roni Brunn | July 12, 2010 | From, News

The Chanel couture fall 2010 collection is one of my recent favorites.  It’s definitely one of the top couture shows for me of all time/forever, since couture shows tend to be too theatrical for my taste.

I loved the hair and makeup, too.  The look highlighted the ease in the clothes and looks fresh against both massive Hollywood extensions and tough, half-shaved styles.  So I tried it myself this weekend, which felt weird because I used to do that at 14-15.  Yeah, so the other angle is that my waves started feeling a bit dated, and I needed something new.  I mean, I’ve had that same style for two years.  The two years before those, I moved 12 times.  I’m not one to take the same road home, let alone see the same thing in the mirror once I get there.

It was actually easier to go straight/messy than make those undone, irregular waves.  Kind of like I knew what I was doing.  Took me a weekend to realize that it felt like I’ve done it before because I’ve done it before, circa The American EP.  Here’s the EP’s cover juxtaposed with a model from the presentation:

Not sure where to go from here.  If I sort out a way to stay messy/clean straight and work out six times a week and not blow dry six times a week, I owe it to humanity to report it.

Here’s a song from The American EP:

From – “Mean to Stay”
