Before Cara Delevingne trotted out this time-reversing hair trick, she took a throwback trend out for a spin: the hair wispie, or when you deliberately pull out pieces to frame your face. (A Lizzie McGuire signature.) Below, tips on how to style them for the 21st century.
Congrats! You and Zosia Mamet are already halfway there. Unlike the method Sporty Spice and company would employ, the more modern, less contrived way to do this is to just let the hair wispies fall where they may.
Opt for a wispier wispie like Ciara, as if the wind tugged them loose. When the wispie is long *and* chunky, it just looks weird.
Tip: Chin-length is about as long as you can pull off without aforementioned weirdness.
But then again, if almost literally referencing '90s girl bands is your bag, go for it...just keep the rest high and tight.
Make sure to grab hair mostly from the top, near the part, for the most flattering effect. Too much from the sides = my ponytail's coming undone.
