EXCLUSIVE: Ashley And Mary-Kate, The Hair Breakdown


Last night, at Barneys’ launch party for The Row handbags, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen showed up armed with their own designs in matching aqua crocodile—and their go-to coiffeur, Mark Townsend. The sisters, who are blonder than usual for summer, wore similar hairstyles as well—long and languid, with identical middle parts. But there was one distinct difference: “I styled Ashley’s hair in a way I very rarely do,” Townsend reports. “Straight.” Coating Olsen’s damp locks with Dove Nourishing Oil, Townsend applied heat using a large round brush (“I swear by Spornette porcupine brushes,” he told us). Once moisture was removed, Townsend flat-ironed the bottom six inches of Ashley’s corn-silk strands, spritzing her roots with Suave Dry Shampoo to add texture and volume. As for Mary-Kate, who rocked her signature beachy waves, Townsend used the same Dove Nourishing Oil treatment, adding a dollop of Dove Body and Lift mousse during the blow-out phase. Next, he wrapped a one-inch curling iron with hairspray-doused sections before finger-combing for piece-y definition. The finishing touch came by way of scrunching from the ends to the mid-lengths with a hefty helping of dry shampoo and a halo of Oribe Soft Lacquer hair spray to “keep it frizz-free on a hot and humid Manhattan evening.”
