FROST W ho knew that cords of every type would get so much hair-play this season? And yet, here's a schoolgirl bow dressing a textured pony at Kate Spade and there's a strait-laced string snaking along the curvature of the head at DKNY. Velvet ribbons prove the most popular fastener, presenting as both soft (at Roksanda and Georgine) and strict (at SUNO) depending on the tying taking place. For Kérastase Paris hair lead Odile Gilbert, who crafted the corseted lengthy ponytail spotted on the SUNO runway, the design's meticulous crisscrossing of silk velvet ribbon can feel a bit too precise—and in this day and age, purposeful blemishes go a long way in beauty. Her advice: "Pull out pieces on the sides for a little imperfection." That idea seems to be the string that holds this trend together: Nothing should feel forced; everything should feel loose— even though tresses are tied up. "When we perfect beauty, we lose the charm," hypothesizes hair l ead Recine backstage at Kate Spade. "We should love all the fl aws and mistakes in the hair. The bow is simply the dressing."
