Deciding wether the hair should be worn up or down is a big part of the stylist's job — usually if there's a lot of intricate details around the necklines, hair will be pulled up and off the clothes. The pieces at BCBG included lots of colorblocking and elaborate fur collars, so Bumble and bumble's Neil Moodie wanted to keep the hair away from the neck, but play up the constructed shapes and '40s feel. He created two versions of a stuctured ponytail and a faux-bang, one that was harder and one with a bit of softness to it. Hair was blown out super-sleek and shiny, then parted to the side and pulled into a structured ponytail. According to Moodie, the ponytail was going to be tucked into the clothes since it isn't the focus of the look — the hair is meant to look like a short, structured hairstyle. The front pieces were left out and swooped over to create the illusion of bangs, then pinned in place. The faux-bangs were left very loose for the soft version, and pulled tight across the forehead for the harder one. "I'm hoping the hard one gets picked," said Moodie. "I think it will work better with the clothes."
