Tuck Youself In

Ear-y goings on for SS13


By Bella Blissett

Models may not have had much sleep in the past two weeks but references to hair being "tucked" or left free in "blankets" suggests that their locks should at least be well-rested.

It all began in New York when Redken Creative Consultant, Guido created a centre-parted, two-textured style that was slicked behind the ears at Victoria Beckham. No sooner had Orlando Pita followed suit with Derek Lam's side-swept look that tucked up neatly behind the lobes, than both Rodarte and Philosophy di Alberta followed suit - albeit with hair that sought out ears on one side only.



To tucks, London has added blankets. At Felder Felder, Adam Reed and Paul Percival created squeaky clean centre partings before tucking hair behind the ears and letting the ends flow forwards in front of the shoulders.

Also towing the line in the tucked-up with-blankets trend was Anthony Turner - not once but twice today. Adding super long extensions to Marios Schwab's American Indians, he ironed on L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil to make hair poker straight then let ears provide an anchor while the lengths took a rest on the collarbones.

Over at Topshop, the reference may have been a nineties Kate Moss but her textured, beachy style was parted low at the side and yes - left to hang in a mussed-up blanket over the shoulder blades.

It certainly brings a whole new meaning the term 'bedhead'.
