Yoshitomo Nara and Brigitte Bardot: Making Messy Hair A Masterpiece

  So, you've slept through your alarm, you have maybe 15 minutes before you have to leave the house, and you look into the mirror to see your hair extending out about a foot on each side of your head. Use it. I’m pretty sure my hair staple for the past 7 years has been some form of a messy 60’s updo. (Except, of course when my hair was less than an inch long). It’s easy, playful, sexy, and can be done in less than 5 minutes as I am running out the door.

  What’s fantastic about this look is how easily transferrable it is into the night and actually works better if your hair isn’t freshly washed. The oils and knots will give it an amazing texture, and all you have to do is add a little bow or headband around the top to finish off the look. An endless source of inspiration for this style is the stunning Brigitte Bardot, who masters that playful sexiness I so often love to incorporate into my look. Add a small cat eye, some neutral lips, and you are ready to take the day by storm.
