The most crucial component of any practical airport look is comfort. You want an outfit with easy-to-shed layers for getting through TSA with ease, something cozy enough to fall asleep in on a long flight, and something that looks polished when you touch down. But if piecing together a perfect outfit for a day of traveling feels like a waste, why not look towards Bella Hadid's sleek bun as the focal point of your look? The model just nailed airport style with the perfect hairstyle — and it's so easy to follow her lead.
Hadid has a certain way of adding a sartorial edge to even the most casual of outfits. With help from her stylist, Mimi Cuttrell, the model has developed an everyday look that pays homage to vintage trends while remaining cool and comfortable. As she was photographed walking through Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris on Weds., Hadid donned a prime example of just how easy it is to elevate an otherwise relaxed outfit with the addition of a simple, polished hairstyle.
The 22-year-old sported black sweatpants, a matching crewneck, and perfectly white Nike Air Force 1 sneakers paired with tall ankle socks. She carried a large Louis Vuitton duffle, complete with a playful cherry print. While this may seem like a pajama-worthy style, the model took it up a notch with her signature sleek hair. She tactfully separated it into a deep side part, and secured the ends with a retro-inspired claw clip.
Although she's a supermodel with easy access to the hottest designer pieces and highly experienced hairstylists, her latest airport look is actually easy to achieve without all the extra help. Simply scout out your softest black sweatsuit, add a cool pair of sneakers, and be sure to give yourself some extra time to experiment with your hair before heading out the door.
Hadid's stayed loyal to claw clips over the past few months, wearing them to red carpet events and while out and about. It's the perfect middle ground between an ultra-styled updo and a messy bun, plus it works for mid-length hair. If you have a bob or lob, try using a claw clip for a half-up look and let the under layer hang down in messy waves. Or, if your hair extends far past your shoulders, secure it with a hair band before adding the clip for extra support.
