When it’s as hot and muggy as it was yesterday and will be again today, I’m tempted to chop off my hair. Then I twist it into a knot or do a simple braid and ride out the heatwave.
Kirsty Hume and Cecilia Chancellor, two of my favorite ’90s models, continue to wear their hair long and it suits them. As hairstylist Sam McKnight says of long locks in July British Vogue, “those days of it being something for the very young are well and truly behind us.”
The hair aside, Kate Phelan’s styling is fabulous—the Hermès look above is going on my inspiration board, pronto.
