RUMPLED PONIES

The Kit - - NEWS -

The hum­ble pony­tail is a gift to those who like to sleep in and those who can’t be both­ered to wash their hair af­ter barre class. But this sea­son, we saw a de­cid­edly more art­ful take on the low-key style. At Monique Lhuil­lier, hair­styl­ist Bob Recine sat­u­rated dry roots with Mor­ro­canoil mousse and raked them up­wards to­ward the top of the head to en­cour­age move­ment, then used his fin­gers to blow- dry hair in all di­rec­tions for a chaotic look. Then he gath­ered the hair in his hands to se­cure it in a pony­tail and added a small black rib­bon. “There’s no comb­ing, no brush­ing,” said Recine. “When you per­fect beauty, you sac­ri­fice charm. There’s al­ways that lit­tle mis­take in hair that peo­ple are at­tracted to; the lit­tle hair that flirts with some­body’s mouth. That’s what we’re af­ter: im­per­fec­tion.” —Rani Sheen
