Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.
“Hook-up hair” was coined by my gal Leah in college at Boston University. Pretty self-explanatory, it’s the state of aff-hairs your mane takes on after a major makeout tryst. It’s a little bit of self-teasing from friction on a pillowcase, a little of mussing. One could charitably call it “texture,” though hook-up hair’s defining characteristic is that it plum will not return to normal (even if it was washed just pre-steamy sesh) until you re-wash and style it again.
Which you won’t do immediately. You’ll rock your hook-up hair to brunch and then later to deconstruct the highlights with your trio of besties over a mimosa.
And tell me: Have you experienced hook-up hair?
