City Pulse

By Amelia Mularz

You could say the hair at New York Fashion Week has been a little biased…as in totally one-sided. At shows like Erin Fetherston, Lela Rose and Derek Lam side-swept styles ruled the runway. The effect? Sometimes girly, sometimes a bit more masculine – always stunning. But no, a comb-over is still not fashionable. Take a look at what works:

The hair at the Erin Fetherston show had a cool 60s vibe, a la Valley of the Dolls. Esther Langham for Alterna on Beauty.com created a variety of styles, but my favorite was a low, side ponytail with volume on top. Products used: Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast, Alterna Bamboo Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse, Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray; all available at http://www.Beauty.com

Ted Gibson was in charge of taming the tresses at the Lela Rose show. A simple twist on one side created a whimsical look for a collection inspired by trips to Coney Island. Products used: Ted Gibson Tame It and Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hair Spray; both available at http://www.Beauty.com

For the Derek Lam show Orlando Pita worked with Phyto for Beauty.com to pull hair back in a sleek ponytail. But it was the side part that helped to highlight a structured, more masculine look to complement pieces inspired by mid-century architecture. Products used: Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray, Phyto 7 Daily Hydrating Botanical Cream, Phyto Workable Holding Spray, Phyto Shine Defining Wax; all available at http://www.Beauty.com
