If there's one beauty essential that Gucci doesn't make a move without beyond makeup, it's her favorite Deborah Pagani hair pin. With a sleek U-shape and a gilded finish, it transforms a quick bun or updo into an effortlessly polished look. So who better to collaborate with on a custom version than the New York City fine jewelry designer herself?
"I wear these pins pretty much every day—it makes putting your hair up more of a moment," says Gucci, holding up our new limited edition launch. The pair of striking decorative pins—in polished gold brass or nude enamel—put a subtle twist on Pagani's original cultish accessory with an open heart design that's a playful spin on the Westman Atelier's logo.
"I'm going to show you just how easy they are to use," says Gucci, who sweeps her hair back into a loose ponytail, then twists the lengths of the hair into a quick spiral, and pops in her pin. "Give yourself a little height at the crown, whatever suits your face!" she says as she makes a few minor adjustments. With Pagani's signature U-turn method, she adds, the luxuriously substantial pins will hold even fine hair firmly in place. As for its subtle 'face lift effect" and ability to render elastic bands obsolete, that's just a bonus. Tuck one in your purse and, boom, instant good hair day, every day. No mirror required.
