At FLARE, we’re huge fans of Mad Men so naturally we’re counting down the hours until this Sunday’s season premiere. From the gorgeous costumes to the highly-stylized beauty direction, the show always gets it right. In one episode, Betty Draper worked the Dolce Vita look with an elaborate updo and finished it with a feminine brooch.  In real life, take inspiration from Christina Hendricks  (aka office vixen Joan Holloway) who hit the red carpet this week to celebrate the fourth season with a twisted updo.  The gorgeous red-head complemented her muted cat eye makeup (courtesy of Nars) with a disheveled chignon and loose, piecey strands. The fact that it’s not perfectly shellacked is exactly what makes this style modern, appealing and perfect for any bride.
