Beach Hair On—And Off—The Sand


What is it about the incipient summer that spawns a desire for piece-y, languid waves? For us, it’s memories of beach hair past and pictures like these that make us recall how great it feels to eschew the blow-dryer and the smoothing creams in favor of salt sprays, texturizers, and plain old air-drying. Last night, Mary-Kate Olsen and Georgia May Jagger offered up their own no-fuss versions of the seasonal style. Olsen went with a middle-parted, matted-down incarnation at the premiere of Holy Rollers in New York, while Jagger opted for a side part with a little bit more body at Karl Lagerfeld’s film presentation party in Saint-Tropez. Both serve to remind us that natural coiffing techniques can be just as effective as more manicured manes, while also conjuring a little bit of personal jealousy, since we’ll never know what it’s like to be a sandy blonde (damn you, olive complexion). Whose low-maintenance look do you like better?

    personally I don’t think this look is pretty on either one of them. Their hair looks coarse and sort of stringy, and the color doesn’t complement their complexions, MK looks like her skin is too red and too pale in some parts, sort of splochy, and the yellow in Jagger’s hair against her fair skin is a little jarring.
