Nope, sorry, I refuse to stop imagining that I live in the sixties.

Whether it’s looking like a wet dog as you emerge from the sea, having a frizz to repel men from all walks of life or simply realizing that wind and long hair is not as fun as they make it look in the movies– we all have issues controlling our manes in summertime but it’s just part of the fun. Experiment with head bands à la Brigitte above, slicked back like Ali MacGraw and Charlotte Rampling below. Just don’t go for the Bo Derek braids. Maybe next year.

Bliss.
