Here, on Kate Winslet, is pretty much the perfect updo. And speaking of updos, I need to talk about yesterday’s posts on Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore and January Jones. My friend M. just gave me grief for hating on them, so I thought I’d just clarify that we’re all about the hair and makeup here at BeautyEditor.ca. Their dresses, I’m sure, were gorgeous, but I rest my case with the updo situation.
Just compare and contrast with Kate’s lovely look. There’s a deep side part, which softens it up, and the bangs fall ever so gently over one eye. The hair has a bit of a wave (texture—even frizz—is the next big thing in hair this year). And the bun sits fairly low on the head, which keeps it effortless but still sophisticated. (There’s something about high buns that I dislike… possibly because they can so easily look like Bridesmaid Hair. And you know that if I’m capitalizing that phrase, it’s not a good thing.)
