The big re­turn of gel

ELLE (Canada) - - Trend Report -

Let’s be clear: This is not the art­fully un­done hair of sea­sons past. Hair­styl­ist Paul Han­lon said it best back­stage at Gi­ambat­tista Valli, where he was cre­at­ing an Ur­sula An­dress Bond-girl look: “It’s very, very, very done hair.” See: the fin­ger waves at Marc Ja­cobs, which Guido Palau, global cre­ative di­rec­tor for Red­ken, told us are not ex­actly a DIY task. (“They are very pre­cise and [re­quire] a very dif­fi­cult tech­nique,” he said of the process that in­volves quickly ma­nip­u­lat­ing gel-coated hair into waves be­fore it starts to dry.) Up for the chal­lenge? Jimmy Paul, editorial stylist for Bum­ble and Bum­ble, who cre­ated a messy ver­sion for Open­ing Cer­e­mony, says to just re­lax: “If it’s im­per­fect, it looks unique.”
