NYFW HAIR: RUNWAY TO REAL-LIFE!

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018


To create the looks for Sherri Hill’s Fall/Winter 2018 show at New York Fashion Week, BioSilk’s Global Artist, Tammy Mixon, chose variations of waves and sleek smooth looks to complement the model’s face, shape, and dress. “The inspiration behind the hair for Sherri Hill’s show this year was individual beauty. There was no one set style. Instead we focused on finding styles to highlight each model’s unique beauty and extraordinary outfit,” said Mixon.

Models, Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Sailor Brinkley Cook (above, left) sported barely-there waves (above). To take the look to real-life, Mixon sprayed a light amount of BioSilk Silk Therapy Hot Thermal Protectant Mist to add moisture and protect against thermal damage before parting hair to flatter the face shape.  At the temple, she made a 1″ vertical subsection and wrapped the hair around the BioSilk Titanium 1″ Hairstyling Iron at a 45-degree angle. Gliding the iron down to create a ribbon like curl, she continue until the entire head was curled.  To complete the look she sprayed a light mist of BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray – Natural Hold onto the hair and ran her fingers through to loosen the curls into light waves.

Former Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach (above, right), however, opted for a sleek style.  Mixon applied BioSilk Silk Therapy with Organic Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment to the hair from the midshaft to the ends to tame frizz while adding additional shine and control (using a brush to evenly distribute the product).  Then she sectioned the hair into 3 sections: from ear to ear, back crown and nape area, leaving the nape area free.  With the BioSilk 1” Titanium Hairstyling Iron, she took 1” wide sections and straightened to achieve a sleek, smooth finish from the top of the crown and throughout the sides.  After smoothing the hair, Mixon applied a small amount of BioSilk Silk Therapy Silk Polish over the top surface of the hair and finished with BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray – Natural Hold and BioSilk Silk Therapy Shine On to maintain the style and adding additional shine.

STEAL THIS STYLE: PAMELLA ROLAND X DRYBAR

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

For New York Fashion Week Pamella Roland Fall 2018 Ready To Wear collection was made up of gorgeous, rich fabrics and jewel-toned colors.  To accompany the chic and edgy looks, Drybar Founder and Lead Artist, Alli Webb, created a voluminous, romantic curls using products from the brand’s professional styling collection, including the new Southern Belle Collection.

To create the looks, Webb began by washing hair with the new Drybar Southern Belle Shampoo and Conditioner, then applying Southern Belle Mousse and spray from midshaft to ends for all over body.  Next she sprayed Root Lifter at the roots for 99% more volume, and blew out the hair, back-brushing for even more volume.  When nearly dry, she created a deep side part and sectioned hair at the crown, rolling 1-2 inch pieces into velcro rollers.  Once cooled, Webb sprayed the look for flexible hold and removed the rollers before creating soft, romantic waves throughout the mid shaft with a curling iron.  Teasing the crown, she added height and lift and flipped the head over before spraying Texturizing Spray for piecey-volume.  Finally, Webb accented the side part by tucking hair behind the ear and securing it with even more hair spray.
