Could You Pull Off Model Makeup?

By the time hairstylist Odile Gilbert is ready for me at Rodarte, the blue and pink extensions ("romantic") are all used up, as are the red ("punk"). But she decides that pale-blonde extensions will look punky enough blended into my dark-brown mane. My new ponytail weighs a ton, and I love it. I feel edgy and powerful, and I absentmindedly stroke the blunt ends like a pet.

The hair miraculously stays in place all day, surviving outfit changes at my friend Sally Tseng's showroom, but it begins drooping at the Rodarte after-party. Two Aveda stylists pounce on my ponytail to resuscitate it. Back home that night, it takes me two minutes to unpin the extensions. I save my blonde alter ego in a plastic baggie, hoping that someday I'll figure out how to revive her without Gilbert.
