Ah this is desperate. Fekkai for Vera Wang. Really? REALLY??

By Beaut.ie | September 12 2012 | 16 Comments

Oh goodie I thought when an email soared into my inbox proclaiming the latest groundbreaking ‘do Frederick Fekkai had created for the Vera Wang show at New York Fashion Week.

This will be something special I promised myself, curling up on the sofa with Cosmo Cat and a nice cup of tea.  Maybe… just maybe I could have a go at it myself?

Well.  It turns out I have been having a go at it for years.  Accidentally.  And in the way that makes you shriek with despair and beg a hairdresser to “do something!  Just do SOMETHING! ANYTHING!”

Look at the bleedin state of it.  And the poor model.  I long to rush towards her with a blusher brush and a nice lipstick.  She looks so miserable – and so would I if I had that hairdo.

Loads of instructions – tons of them – accompanied the pix of this “turban inspired dry up-do.  A poetic recreation of a weathered style”.  Mousse, hairspray, backcombing bla de bla.  It went on for paragraphs.

Well here’s my instructions.  Overuse your straightners.  Get far too many highlights and dry up your hair.  Bundle the whole lot up into clips and then hit the sack.  Wake up in the morning and don’t even attempt to fix your hair.  Don’t put on any makeup and hit the runway.

Simple. Now that will be $25,000 please Vera Wang.

    Suddenly feeling a lot happier about my wild curly / bushy hair today. Thanks girls ;) Bit scary though what can be considered ‘fashion’. Ek!

    I actually like it, ok maybe without that many flyaways :D. I’m actually inclined to blame the makeup for the glum look on the model’s face and not the hairdo. x

  • Oh my hair is like this now! Brilliant! I’m in fashion. I’m like a lion the frizz is so bad.

    This is me after a good night out. But a bit smilier usually :D

  • Evie says:

    That’s hideous! Though isn’t Vera Wang hair and makeup usually very bland and unexciting, Vera don’t want no flashy hair and makeup distracting from her stunning creations….well she’s no fear of that here. Hope the frocks were at least nice.

    I think you have to be incredibly good looking to get away with styles like this, and that’s why the fashion industry likes them. Mere mortals with a hairstyle like that would look like we’d stepped out of a wind tunnel – but to wear a hair style like that and manage to look good marks you out as a higher species.
