A few ways to wear your hair while in mode style and keep it interesting: the Mode Bun, Mode hair accessories, straight vs. curled bob, and two Mode ways to use a scarf in your hair. I’m also trying out Momoko Ogihara’s make-up look. It’s a reallllly long post
I first thought of the post, because I really loved Ena Matsumoto’s Mode style bun.
Disclaimer: I am not a model just a simple gal. Also, she’s using a texturized look to offset her sleek outfit.
I went for a more sleek look for a busier outfit. We also do not have the same bangs (obviously).
Step 1. Put up your hair in a ponytail with a chunky scrunchie.
Step 2: Wrap a scarf around your scrunchie. If you have thin hair or want a larger bun use several. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 3. Use a teasing comb to tease your hair. For Ena’s more textured loose bun tease from the outside with the comb facing the other way. If you want a sleeker bun, tease from the inside as shown.
Step 4. When finished your hair should be quite teased and fluffy.
Step 5. Separate a section of hair. I’m using about 1/7th of my hair. Ena’s bun requires smaller sections so possibly 1/12.
Step 6. Roll and pin your section.
Step 7. Repeat until the last two pieces are the ones in front of your head.
Step 8. Pin the last two and pull them apart so that they meet. For Ena’s style remember to pull a few strands to make it look loose.
Since this is a stark hairstyle remember to add some fun earrings!
Ena has also worn this style to show off a statement necklace and used small earrings. A lovely Mode nighttime look
Momoko Ogihara’s Sleek Mode Look
On Momoko Ogihara’s blog she posted this great hair and make-up look that I had to lust over and try to copy.
p.s. dear god her contacts are amazing, any clue what she’s wearing?
For the hair: Momoko Ogihara uses a fabulous black and gold pairing for her hair and earrings. I raided my hair closet and came up with a bronze headband by Goody and a feather headband by Urban Outfitters. My large earrings are by Yves Saint Laurent.
This is a great way to pull back heavy bangs. Remember to keep everything in a same color scheme.
I felt the key to the make-up was 3 points shine, a bright color, and gold undertones.
A strong brow and elongated liner help complete the look. I’m using MAC #7s and some small bottom highlight lashes.
It’s a very simple look and the liner amount helps cover the top and bottom lash edges.
Straight vs. Curl
Since a lot of the ladies are in straight hair or long undercurled bobs in the street snaps so against my better judgement I’m showing straight hair.
Simple easy stuff, right? Just remember to use products such as a shine spray and leave in conditioner so that any humidity is offset.
Curling makes a big difference!
Look at the volume of simply curling my hair with a large barrel iron vs. straightening it.

I did a similar look, just more volume instead of sleekness. Just a big barrel iron can bring you great results :note:
Mode Hair Scarves Two Ways
:upheart: The Side Bow :upheart:
Always pre-knot your scarf in a loose knot. This stops you from fuzzing too much with it and messing up your hair.
Tie into a side bow and coordinate with outfit. So simple!
The Under Scarf
Have your scarf knotted and half of your hair up. Do not pin back your bangs.
Wrap your pre-tied scarf around your forehead and arrange. Gently move your bangs into place.
Untie hair and poof! Scarf impact! It really volumizes hair
I think this look works best with a printed or bright scarf. Also if you do your eyebrows (I didn’t )
Phew that’s it! Next is Mitsu’s Bday Post, Mode in stores, Lip Service 109 to Overseas and then Gal Summer Luvin’. Away we go! :waves:
I need to drag someone to be a hair model, too bad my man’s hair is shaved LOL I’m not big on posting myself throughout this (or at all), but I always feel that if I’m telling you about a trend, I should try it too or I’m just preaching So sorry guys you get me. When Bloomzy comes to Japan she’ll be my mannequin instead ehehehe!!
