Marc by Marc Jacobs' Madonna-Inspired Hair
As a child of the '80s, I'm obsessed with the pop culture and styles from then; though I'm thankful that heavily hairsprayed strands are no longer en vogue—hello, hair damage!—I'm fascinated by the sticky-sweet dos of the day. And like everyone else, I have a soft spot for Madonna. Which is why I was excited when, while backstage at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show earlier, I encountered the perfect homage to the pop princess' 1980s coif confections (and excessive hair product): "It's very inspired by Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan," says Guido, Redken's creative consultant who keyed the show. "The hairstyle is meant to look a little 'bad girl.' We've got these lovely bows that Marc made so I want to keep the texture rough to offset those."
What do you think of the edgy, fun hairstyle? And would you rather rock Guido's version—or the original? Sound off now!
