Proenza Schouler Pre Styling Cream by Bal­main Smooth­ing Shine Drops by Philip B Pic­ture a per­fectly preened power woman. Do you see a cas­cade of coif­fured locks? Blow-drys, beach waves and sleek bobs have, for years now, dom­i­nated on and off the run­ways. But change is afoot. No longer the Pippi Long­stock­ing-in­spired styles of My Lit­tle Pony-wield­ing school­girls, the new plaits are tightly wo­ven or twisted, slicked and wisp-free. From the tiny twines (rem­i­nis­cent of the braids you re­turned from hot hol­i­days with as a child) that Paul Han­lon scat­tered through straight, sim­ple hair at Louis Vuit­ton, and the sin­gle twists at Pub­lic School and Proenza Schouler, to the corn­rowin­spired up­dos at Valentino, th­ese are plaits with at­ti­tude. Pol­ished, ur­ban and ooz­ing with tough-girl cool, the look is equally as ap­pro­pri­ate with a gown or a T-shirt. So, gals, con­sider the gaunt­let laid: whether French or fish­tail, corn­row or boxer, it’s time to pimp your pony­tail.
