I was a little surprised when TeamSugar member KEG asked for a how-to on the runway hair on this week's Gossip Girl, since it was kind of a daring look — pulled back at the very top with the rest of the hair frizzed out and tucked under itself above the shoulders. Of course, what I'd really like to know is how all the socialites got identical hairstyles in ten minutes (do they teach you that at Chapin?), but I digress. It seems like KEG was onto something, as frizz has already made an appearance on a couple of Spring runways. Sonia Rykiel showed very '70s brushed out curls (right), while Louis Vuitton sent models down the runway looking almost poodle-like.
Since you've likely spent your life (or, at least, the better part of the '90s) trying to get rid of frizzy hair, you may need a refresher on how to get it. Skip conditioner and apply a salt spray on wet hair (you can buy one, or just mix salt and water in a spray bottle). Backcomb where you want more volume and keep shine at bay with a hair powder. That's it. If only braces were on Gossip Girl and Paris runways, a whole generation of girls might make it through puberty that much more smoothly.
