Give Your Hair A Punked Up 'Do A La Missoni And Prada

Both glam and punk at the same time, our inner wild child is crushing hard on this fauxhawk-esque punk updo from Missoni's fall show. A combo of a classic French pleat (or twist) and a textured, free-flowing top section, stylist and Wella Global Creative Director, Eugene Souleiman describes the look as "Haute Couture meets biker boy" and just like its rebellious mohawk cousin, the main styling tool is hairspray, hairspray…and more more hairspray. Here's a quick way to get the look: First, section the top of the hair and clip. Then pull the rest of the hair back into a ponytail, twist up into a roll, and pin.Now to form your fauxhawk: release the top section of hair, push it to one side and spray with hairspray. Flip the hair over to the other side and repeat. Work a texturizing pomade into the roots of the top section of the hair, then add more hairspray, and use your fingers to guide the top section of hair over and back.

An even tamer version of the punk hairstyle look popped up at Prada, courtesy of Redken stylist Guido Palau. His trick to forming that edge is to create two parts, each above the brow, and section away the hair at the top of the head. Pull the rest of the hair back and secure with a long, metallic barrette at the nape. Spray hairspray into your hands and work the sectioned off piece back to meet the ponytail, but keep this top section pinned at the back of head until ready to go out. Layer generous amounts of hairspray on the top section to create a visible edge, and remove the pins just before you walk out the door.
