Fashionistas everywhere have had their eyes trained to the glorious photos coming out of Paris Fashion Week — we’re delighted to see so many soft pastels and interesting patterns on the runways. But one particular detail caught our eye, and it was that all the models at the Chanel show had their hair done with a vacuum!

Who among us hasn’t tried to find an easier way to make the perfect ponytail? This vacuum cleaner hair hack produced some of the chicest hair to hit the runway — celebrity stylist Sam McKnight knocked it out of the ballpark with this one.

Would you dare try doing your hair with a vacuum cleaner a lá Chanel?

If the chicest show in Paris did it, why not us?

As you can see in the video, the vacuum helps to suck the hair into the clear perspex tube that is fastened to the ponytail, giving it an ultra-sleek, polished look. It’s the ultimate ponytail holder, and you can probably make one out of some plastic tubing from the hardware store.

All the clothing at the Chanel show was impeccable too, and having the hair pulled back highlighted it beautifully.

You really didn’t need crazy hair with Lagerfeld’s stunning designs — sometimes an elevated pony is all one needs for a sophisticated look.
