At Jason Wu, Hair Fit For A Queen (Or First Lady)
In order to get the pulled back, “fairy-tale vibe—but not a Disney
fairy tale,” for the hair he created at Jason Wu, hairstylist and RSession Tools co-founder Kevin Ryan dipped into his newly designed “Pin Up Girl” kit, which was proudly on display backstage. Coming in blond, black, and brunette varieties, each set includes a selection of hairpins, elastics, clips, a styling brush, and the all-important hair bun—a mesh-foam rod that can be used to craft a variety of updos. Yesterday, the look was a tiara-topped middle part with a low, sleek pony prepped with Bumble and Bumble thickening spray, blown out, and touched up on the ends with Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom. “We’re going for more of a Grimm’s fairy tale,” Ryan explained, “when the heroines didn’t just wait for some man to save them but had to do a little work for themselves.” Not a far cry from the new, Obama-era Camelot.
