Boing! Spring Hair

Hot buns coming through.

The onset of spring is inspiring us to do all kinds of eager beaver things. Like prematurely wearing shorts before the calendar officially ticks over, optimistically (i.e. idiotically) leaving our jackets and umbrellas at home, and contemplating wearing tube socks in our hair. Yes, tube socks!

The silky tresses we've nurtured underneath beanies and hoods all winter long are about to be exposed to all manner of sunny, salty, summery damnation. Everyone knows it sucks to have long hair in summer, but if the Alexa Chung/Chloe Sevigny/Arizona Muse bob isn't for you what are the alternatives?

Opening Ceremony's resident hair whiz, Sloane Sera of Bumble and Bumble, has concocted a fairly unorthodox step-by-step guide to achieving 'dream buns'. What appears to be a thinly veiled American Apparel promo turned out some rather unexpected results - we'd say it's a 50-50 split between wearable and godawful.

On a chicer note, Oyster's go-to beauty blogger, Emily Weiss of Into The Gloss, inflicted a serious case of hair envy when she introduced us to Vogue stylist Julia Von Boehm and her amazing 'french twists'. Weiss claims to have finally mastered Von Boehm's effortless three pin twist using even less hardware. Her secret? Spin Pins.

Created by supermarket hair accessories brand Goody, these award winning accoutrements are quite literally bobby pins with a twist. The corkscrew pins are on an upward spiral, rising through the ranks of snag-free elastics and scrunchies on a path to coveted cult success. For a full briefing on how best to apply these wind-up wonders visit Into The Gloss.
