The death of Princess Diana has inspired many a postmortem tribute, although Bompas and Parr’s latest may stand alone in, um, its uniqueness. The U.K.-based purveyor of fine jellies has produced an “occult jam” made from a strand of the late princess’ hair mixed with a consommé of gin, milk, and sugar to further pay homage to her flaxen locks. Ew. [Time]
In other hair news, Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance has published a guide to men’s hairstyles, mandating “short, neat hair” to, say, mullets or ponytails. Stylistic fades are also out, sadly. [BBC]

London is usually all about goth and edge, but Graeme Black, the great Scotsman who was once head of Ferragamo, is a bit of an outlier. As noted by this site’s fashion reporters, he “doesn’t really do ‘relaxed.” Lucky for us, however, hairstylist Sam McNight does. Playing off Black’s unrelentingly elegant and refined sentiment, McKnight—who has worked his magic on the heads of Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bündchen, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Hurley, and Princess Diana—conjured up a backstage look that was as accessible as it was pristine. “The colors and feel of the show—it was all so Maharani,” McKnight explained. “So we used blow-dryers and curlers to create, I guess, a bird’s nest—a loose chignon that looks slightly blown by what could be trade winds in the East. Very sexy, very blustery, and very polished—not hard to do,” McKnight insists. A messy bun for some D.I.Y. Hollywood-by-way-of-Bollywood glamour does sound easy enough to pull off. Do try this at home.
