Five Kiernan Shipka hair vibes to try at home

By Maybelle Morgan, April 17, 2017

It’s safe to say that cool-girl Kiernan Shipka (aka Mad Men's Sally Draper) should already be on your radar. Front-row regular and a trend-blazer, the girl also does seriously good hair — did anyone say dream-girl all-rounder? Here are 5 ‘dos you can copy for your Mon-Fri thing…

Chicer than your average, the low-pony is your high-stakes hair player for dinners/drinks and general party vibes. Use a toothcomb to fix a parting directly above the arch of your eyebrow, before sweeping hair into a pony at the nape of the neck. Keep the rest minimal to get that groomed, polished thing going.

This one? It’s the hairdo you work before you wash it, so yep, you guess it: it works better on greasy hair. The key is a razor-straight side-parting, so use a tooth-comb to fix it. Use a tiny dab of gel on the roots to get that runway vibe going and rely on some glam ear cuffs to elevate the look.

Who said disco was dead? 'Cause your BNO look just got a '70s reboot with Kiernan’s bigger-than-life locks. The night before your shindig, French-braid side-parted hair and sleep on it. The next day, shake it out, comb your fingers through (for natural texture) and fasten with a simple slide. Add lipgloss (yep, it’s back) and you’ve got a deal.

For your fancier RSVPs it’s all about going modern-day flapper girl (consider Daisy Buchanan your pin-up inspo). Straighten hair and sweep into an extreme side-parting, before curling all locks in one direction. Update that glam '20s thing, by keeping bling and makeup to a bare minimum (bar some really strong brushed-up brows).

Some days your lazy-girl dial will be turned all the way up but that doesn’t mean you can’t still boss that mirror thing. Copy Kiernan’s vibe by sleeping in a bun (to create natural waves) and taming your second-day locks into a side-parting. Make it glam by combing through and adding some copper shadow.
