Flashback Friday: We Got the Beat
Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Moment: Supersize Headphones
The Motivation: Take a ride on any New York City subway and you’re guaranteed to notice at least half of the strap-hanging population wearing DJ-style headphones, from Beats by Dre to the ever-popular gold Frends styles—while inconspicuous earbuds seem to be going the way of the Walkman. Even Karl Lagerfeld jumped on the bandwagon at Chanel, where models sported quilted versions while perusing the shelves at the supermarché. The issue, however (for the ladies, at least), becomes how to style your strands whilst wearing said accessory. We’re looking to this late eighties image for inspiration, taking beauty cues from the model’s on-trend pixie cut styled to sleek perfection and her skull-hugging headphones. Time to turn up the music.—Tara Lamont-Djite
