Swept Away


The updo has come undone. It’s loosened up. And we’re a little, well… blown away. No longer do we have to be a slave to top knots and side braids. Think big, messy and of course a lot of texture.

Wear with your favorite distressed denim, ankle boot (we love the Rachel Comey “Mars”) and top it off with the classic belted, leather jacket by Acne to get that perfectly disheveled look that seems so effortlessly cool.

There’s something about an updo that makes you feel a little sexier. So work in leather pants, a cool tee, over-the-top necklace, a pair of heels and a red lip. Heads will turn.


The rules have been brushed aside, leaving lots of stylish options. To start, it’s all about creating volume. Wash and condition your hair with AG’s Thikk Wash and Thikk Rinse. Apply Foam, then proceed to blow dry with your fingers, twisting your hair in sections and giving it a little movement. Finally use AG’s High & Dry to get that gritty texture we long for. From here, it’s up to you – sweep on the top of the head, pinning pieces haphazardly and letting a few fall to frame your face or maybe gather in a low chignon, remembering the messier – the better.
