There is just something so badass about pairing edgy hair with really ladylike clothing. Chanel took full advantage of that juxtaposition during yesterday’s spring 2012 couture show, which showcased gowns and gorgeous frocks galore (not to mention, 150 shades of blue), all paired with aerodynamic mohawks. Some were more extreme than others, but we especially loved the pompadour-style looks, which are definitely wearable for a night out.
Not that we’re psychic or anything, but we totally predicted that the faux hawk would have a revival. In fact, we just shot a whole video tutorial on how to get this exact look: major volume up top and super-sleek sides. Check back in the coming weeks to see how you can replicate this confident and very cool ‘do yourself!
Hint: a major necessity to getting this look on your own is using Spornette’s Little Wonder.
