Joan Holloway's Sophisticated Hairstyle
When Joan sashays into the room, there is nowhere else for a pair of eyes to go. Period. It isn't just her wardrobe that turns heads--it's her attitude: sexy, sophisticated and always in charge. Part of her fiery appeal lies in her tresses, which are gathered in the back with side swept bangs, a look that says business and pleasure all at once.
To really capture Joan's perfect coif, you'd have to sit in a stylist's chair for an hour or two. However, you can steal a little bit of this era glam, by doing a simple French twist. Start with a low ponytail and twist it a few times to secure the position. Point the end of the ponytail upwards and then begin to tuck it in to the rest of your hair, working form the bottom up. Then, use bobby pins as liberally as Don Draper pours his bourbon. For a full step-by-step guide click here.
