isabel marant waves

Back in October, as the Spring 2014 Ready-To-Wear shows came to a close, Isabel Marant was having a moment. Her line was deemed a favorite among the fashionable crowd, and her collection for H&M sold out within days. The clothes were great and the hair was even better. On the runway and on the the street, the Marant girls wore mussy waves. The new collection, shown last week in Paris, was comfortable, functional, and even polar vortex appropriate. The models wore easy and sexy, undulating hair, a nice pairing to the cool-vibe of the clothes. Clearly this style has staying power and is turning into it’s own classic.

Classic styles like the milkmaid braid transition easily from season to season, but even the most timeless looks can use an update from time to time.

Higher placement makes the style feel more wreath-like while exposed ends add a deconstructed element. Click the style notes for step-by step instructions to creating the current variation of this classic look. –– Laura Martin

Rather than pairing with blunt bangs, which is what all the girls are doing, she makes a point of difference by sweeping hair away from the face, with just a few wispy strands enhancing the face-frame.
