Backstage beauty: A twisted classic at Jason Wu

French hairstyling legend Odile Gilbert crafted a twist (ha!) on the traditional bun at today’s Jason Wu show. (Our own Lesa Hannah was backstage at Wu’s show today and we’re told she has video. Stay tuned! UPDATE: Here it is!) Gilbert wrapped the models’ ponytails with stretchy cord to create a slightly wobbly look and then twisted them up to create a “flat chignon.” It’s soft and pretty, with a slight wonk to it, which we love. Bonus: It looks pretty simple to recreate at home.
