If you’re planning to go clubbing in Los Angeles, break out your edgiest gear.
“L.A. style is a lot more adventurous than anywhere else. The weather definitely plays a part,” says Janine Jarman, a Hollywood salon owner whose Hairroin is located on the hottest club-scene street in Los Angeles.
“Girls in L.A. wear more lightweight clothes, lots of accessories, lots of layers, bright colors and fabulous shoes,” she says. For fashionistas on the West Coast, the more creative the outfit, the better.
Long hair rules. Adding clip-in extensions for length and volume is a major trend because girls in L.A. don’t want to compromise their outdoor and beach lifestyles with anything permanent, says Janine. For Margot, Janine took inspiration from Amy Winehouse’s look, but softened and finished it more.
“It’s a beach-y set with a vintage style,” she says, “perfect for the L.A. scene where vintage is a huge inspiration.”
To create Margot’s undone up/down ’do, Janine prepped the hair with texture spray and flat-wrapped it during the blow out for a heavy, sweeping fringe. She then clipped in her own line of human hair extensions in “Bardot” blonde, iron curled the hair in alternating directions, then teased up the crown. The low ponytail is backcombed and pinned to the fringe for a sexy, undone finish.
“We’re open late,” Janine explains, “and the scene starts around 11 p.m. We have a lot of clients who will come into the salon and then just walk to the clubs from here.”
