There’s a difference between the bouffants we see in cartoons and the ones we see in real life. On Marge Simpson, big hair looks amazing. On Amy Winehouse, it looks like a big, bad mess.
Which might be why RSession Tools put the step-by-step instructions in its Pin-Up Girl Kit in comic form. Whether you want a bobby socks-inspired ponytail or a major beehive, there’s a cartoon model helping you through the process.
The kit also comes with the tools you need to get your hair reaching such great heights: bobby pins, duck clips, bungee elastics, a styling brush, and the all-important hair bun, a squishy tube that’s the secret to getting major vertical volume.
The brains behind the Pin-Up Girl Kit, Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri, are no strangers to runway hair (for the fall ’09 shows, they were behind the looks at Jason Wu, Richard Chai, Milly, and Tibi, among others), especially the cartoonish styles that are so often a part of it. So it’s no surprise that the first kit from their Runway Series is for getting big hair without losing control.
Because while we might never know the secret behind Marge’s foot-tall hair, at least we’ve got a cartoon character guiding us through a human-worthy version.
