5 Kiernan Shipka hair vibes to try at home

It’s safe to say that cool-girl Kiernan Shipka (aka Mad Men’s Sally Draper) should already be on your radar. FROW regular and a trend-blazer, the girl also does seriously good hair – did anyone say dream-girl all-rounder? Here are 5 ‘dos you can copy for your Mon-Fri thing…

Swing low

Chicer than your average, the low-pony is your high-stakes hair player for dinners/drinks and general posh ‘dos. Use a toothcomb to fix a parting directly above the arch of your eyebrow, before sweeping hair into a pony at the nape of the neck. Keep the rest minimal to get that groomed, polished thing going.

Slick story

This one? It’s the hairdo you work before you wash it, so yep, you guessed it: it works better on greasy hair. The key is a razor-straight side-parting, so use a tooth-comb to fix it. Use a tiny dab of gel on the roots to get that catwalk vibe going and rely on some glam ear-cuffs to elevate the look.

Frizz it

Who said disco was dead? ‘Cos your BNO look just got a 70s reboot with Kiernan’s bigger-than-life barnet. The night before your shindig, French-plait side-parted hair and sleep on it. The next day, shake it out, comb your fingers through (for natural texture) and fasten with kirby grips. Add lipgloss (yep, it’s back) and you’ve sealed the deal.

For your fancier RSVPs it’s all about going modern-day flapper girl (consider Daisy Buchanan your pin-up inspo). Straighten hair and sweep into an extreme side-parting, before curling all locks in one direction. Update that glam 20s thing by keeping bling and make-up to a bare minimum (bar some really strong brushed-up brows).

For days where you want to look like you just woke up like this (but in fact you sat in front of the mirror for a good 20 mins, tongs in hand), this is the 'do you're looking for. Part your hair to the side and use your straighteners to create kinks like Kiernan's, then spray hairspray onto a hairbrush and run through your hair from the top to loosen the look and keep fly-aways at bay.
