How to: Alexander Wang’s effortless tomboy hair

At times simple, clean and modern, this coming season many a designer has blurred the lines between femininity and masculinity bringing a very strong look to life in one of fall 2012’s most challenging of fashion trends: androgynous fashion. While some designers infused androgynous with mid-20th century appeal, others have stuck to a gender-neutral, tomboy interpretation. Naturally, such an interpretation is one realised upon the catwalk of Alexander Wang’s winter 2012 showing.

Complimenting Wang’s presentation was a fall 2012 hairstyle that we’ve dubbed “effortless tomboy hair”. Chic, elegant and striking, it is a look that blurs the lines between effortless and effortful, between day and night. And you can wear it yourself; all you have to do is follow a few easy steps.

Using a comb or brush tip, create a very straight center-part.

The most important part; finish off the tomboy hairstyle by tucking your hair behind each ear.
