Voluminous Hair

In a sea of sleek, flat, polished hair styles there were still a few shows where volume reigned supreme. The Jackie O/Marilyn Monroe sort of looks at LAMB, and Van Krommenacker are super wearable, as is the Costello Tagliapietra look. For a more dramatic take I love the french twists at JPG.
