The Frizz Pendulum Swings Back

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.

1. Big difference between GG girl and the girl on the right. lol 2. No, Frizzed out hair is not back, bigger hair with volume is.

FRIZZY HAIR IS IN!?!??! Oh, if only it were true in real life- my morning routine would be soooooo much easier. BUT, I just can't see it becoming an everyday trend. I prefer my smooth waves, even though I have to work for them!

I doubt that my hair needs any encouragement on how to BE frizzy. It's generally like that all the time anyway, lol.

of course i am flattered by the shout-out, but i think the GG hair is more big and curly than frizzy... it is WAY cuter than the scary phil spector hair on the right!

I think I would rather pick other runway looks to consider trying on myself. That's the hair I go out of my way to avoid.

I am in shock. My life's goal is to make my hair stay down and NOT frizz. I wish this would have been in when I was in high school. I would have had to do nothing at all.

I'm scared of that girl on the right. That hair...those glasses... chills down my spine. Hold me.
