Runway Hair With A Fall Flair

SHOWTIME! If you’ve ever seen The Devil Wears Prada, you know just how important Fashion Week is to the beauty industry. So we were pretty darn thrilled to design the hair at Malan Breton’s NYFW Fall/Winter 2017 show with our Guest Artist Director, Vivienne Mackinder. The vibe–edgy with a strong vintage influence–set the scene for everything from sleek waves to faux bobs.

We’ve got the how-to’s hereā€¦

MAKING WAVES

Gothy gowns edged in glam lace, ruffles, and bows set the stage for starkly beautiful lengths of brunette waves.

HOW:

  • Next, using a small-barrel iron, “Marcel” the top sections of hair in a horizontal pattern, giving the look of finger waves.
  • Curl the lower sections of hair vertically with a large-barrel iron, leaving ends out for a loose bend that flows naturally.

  • Curl the remaining top hair with an iron and spritz with Power Spray for hold.
  • Loosen the set with fingers and a large comb; then apply Hair Shake for added texture.
  • Twist and pull apart hair, then pin into the braided base at the nape of the neck.
  • Dry hair around the face into soft finger waves, leaving a few tendrils out to soften the look.
  • Using fingers, gently relax and loosen the ‘do for a modern edge.
