I’ve always wanted more hair than I actually have for the sole purpose of being able to coil my copious ponytail into a gorgeously bulbous bun like the models at Sophie Theallet during fashion week. It’s the classier, uptown cousin of the hipstery-cool samurai top-knot: The front is severely slicked back, which all the more accentuates the protruding back, and makes the style insanely striking. It takes more than a second to create such a pitch-perfect look (I’m usually all for the softening effect of a few fly-away strands, but this really looks best ultra-sleek), but really all you need is Aveda Control Paste for hold and a barrel of bobby pins.
