How mesmerizing was the Valentino show? No wonder mister Valentino himself had to wipe a tear of his cheek after watching the finale from the front row. The design duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli just take it to a whole another level, season after season.
That Valentino tail though (such a cool take on the slick braid they did last year)! *runs to the drugstore to stock up on hair ties as we speak. That is if I ever decide to grow my hair again.

A very much refined beauty look backstage at Ports1961 in Milan. Frosty lids, accompanied by the perfect amount of eyeliner, the slightest bit of mascara and a barely there lip.
The hair was simple, side parted, and had a bit of a synthetic shine to it. One side was tucked away behind the ear as a bit of a gesture, like the hair has not even been touched at all.
Eugene Souleiman, Wella’s hair genius and the one behind this look, said backstage: “We have been living much faster and we need easier results. Maximum results with minimum time.”
Just how I like my time in front of the mirror to be, very véry limited. Easy beauty.

Like rag socks, tucked-in hair is a super quick and easy styling trick that looks instantly chic. It is easiest with a turtle neck (like I am unintentionally intentionally doing here) or high collar something, but works just as well with basically anything with a neckline as long as your hair is long enough to stay shoved in.
Chanel demonstrated the look with heavy chain chokers on its fall/winter 2013 runway and Mulberry and Hermès were doing the faux bob too.
There is a whole theory to be found on the internet about how to create a perfectly tousled tucked-in hair look, but I believe the key is to not even try. Just put in some sturdy hair product, throw on a sweater and leave your hair in. Wait for some fly-aways et voilà, nonchalance and effortlessness in a jiffy.
What do you think?
Turtle Neck, Céline.

I don’t know if anyone of you noticed, but my hair is getting longer. It has been months since I last visited a hairdresser, even since I secretly chopped a bit off myself. The thing is that I am both lazy at making appointments in that category (the dentist, spa, nail salon (I had to file off my own shellac once), the gym (ok, one does not really have to make an appointment for that, but still)) ánd super scared of hairdressers.
Mine kind of helped me grow over it a tiny bit, but now that I am in LA, I feel like I have to start all over again.
A medium to cropped length blunt chop would be my ideal do, no layers, no fuss. The only problem is, most hairdressers do love layers. Last time I told one I wanted a blunt chop, I ended up with more layers than I could have ever imagined. He almost gave me bangs, really.
Now if even Yasmin Sewell’s curls can look like they are bluntly chopped, it mustn’t be so hard to do the same with my super straight non-voluminous hair.
Wanted, a great hairdresser anywhere in LA that does not charge hundreds and can do a simple medium to cropped length blunt chop. Something a little like the image underneath, though a tad bit longer (shoulder length?) and way wayyy messier.
I have added some extra inspiration to my .BEAUTY board on Pinterest.

The hair at Vanessa Bruno was gorgeously simple and effortless. A bit imperfect even…
And if Wella’s Global Creative Director Eugene Soleiman can do this in 10 minutes, we can probably do it in about 30, right?
