ICYMI (but how could you have?): the '90s are back and better than ever on the Spring 2015 runways. One trend you probably thought you'd never see again is making a comeback and no, I'm not talking about frosted lipstick. I'm talking about crimped hair, as seen on the Stella McCartney runway!
Lead hair stylist Eugene Souleiman sought to create a more interesting variation on the ponytail to highlight the laid-back vibes of Stella McCartney's fantastic S/S 2015 collection. He succeeded by channeling "a little bit of good-bad taste," according to Vogue, and crimping strands of the models' hair to add some texture to slicked back low ponys. But the 2014 version of crimping looks somewhat different than the time you fried your locks with a crimper back in middle school (what, just me?).
“What makes this work is keeping it flat.” Souleiman told Vogue. The lesson? Crimp sparingly. An in case you needed further permission to try this look out for yourself, Souleiman also admitted to crimping Kate Moss's hair a lot in the '90s. If it's good enough for Kate Moss, it's good enough for me.
Now, we don't normally equate crimped strands with simplicity, but the hair look at Stella McCartney was certainly understated, a cross between polished and "total bed head." Err on the side of caution if you're copying this at home. Here's a photo from backstage at Stella to use as your guide. Happy crimping!
