The Young and The Coiffed

While Vogue's September issue came off as trying to be everything to everybody, there were a couple of editorials that caught my eye.
The Sweater Girl layout featuring the lovely Lara Stone, edited by Grace Coddington and photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, stood out for its High Wasp style.
There was something so all American "girl next door" in these photos
And I appreciated the simplicity in the way that she was styled
and the fact that she was not over accessorized
Above all, I loved her carefully coiffed hair.
The well groomed look appeals to my inner trad attraction to orderliness.
So I give you fashion vanguards, the Olsen twins, also in the September issue of Vogue, with their overly dyed straggly rats nest boho hair
and the very obviously coiffed Lara Stone
Which look do you prefer?

Also, in the same issue there was a Grace Kelly inspired editorial, shot by Steven Meisel and edited by Camilla Nickerson, with amazingly elaborate high hair, similar to the recent Steven Meisel shoot with Christy Turlington in Italian Vogue. 

Are we seeing a hair trend here?

Thanks for posting these pictures, Bell Biv Devoe, they are just lovely. I'm getting a 1940s vibe from the Sweater Girl set, while the Tender is the Night photo is just sublime. If only women looked like that ,today.

It is a privilege to have hair so thick and shiny. I have nothing against on the hairstyles you show here.
