Do The (Marcel) Wave
A curious retro beauty movement has gained steam over the past few weeks, as a collective homage to old Hollywood hairstyles seems to have taken hold of the runway and the red carpet. Pin-tucked faux bobs were spotted backstage at Christian Dior Couture last week, and then there’s the uptick in marcel waves with both Katherine Heigl and Keira Knightley sporting side parts and soft bends that segued into low chignons last night at the Paris premiere of One for the Money and the U.K. premiere of A Dangerous Method, respectively. You can chalk it up to awards season being in full swing, and we couldn’t be happier to see classic coiffure back in the spotlight. You too?
