8 Brunette-Friendly Rainbow Hair Colors That Are Perfect For Cooler Weather

See Marc Jacobs-Inspired Runway Hair in Real Life

Here's a great runway-inspired how-to post from OnSugar blog Beauty & the Blog:

I love season changes, especially in fashion and beauty. I did a shoot recently with Brendan Zhang (photographer) and Aaron Kok (stylist). The styling was a fantastic layering of textures; very Yohji Yamamoto-esque. The hairstyle was inspired by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011.

To find out how Beauty & the Blog re-created the look, just keep reading.

Materials: U-pins, straws, and bobby pins.

  • Section the hair in one-fourth to half-inch triangular sections.
  • Spray down the hair shaft with a working spray and comb to smooth.

  • Wrap the hair in and out around a bended straw or U-pin like a figure 8, [and] secure in through the bottom middle with a bobby pin (the smaller the section and U-pin, the tighter the 'fro).
  • Heat with a portable hood dryer for five to 10 minutes, let cool 15-20 minutes. (If you are not using straws or anything meltable for that matter — heat each with a flat iron.)
  • Remove the bobby pin and gently pull the end of the hair while sliding out the U-pin/straw from the top.
  • Brush out with a comb-out brush.

Et voilà!

But that's not all. Be sure to check out the rest of the post, and while you're at it, why not create a blog of your own? We'd love to feature you on BellaSugar.

Sorry Mary-Jane! Your link was in the spam folder! Gorgeous! Believe it or not the U-pins would be faster BUT they are different looks as you point out... Thanks for sharing this...ages ago... ;) xo

Why not? Kidding. Being cheeky. Yes, clearly it's not for everyone. However, this texture is also great to do for a more contained hairstyle like a ponytail or bun.
