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?
