Fashion Week How-To’s From the Pros at Zang Toi and Jonathon Simkhai
Fashion royalty descended on NYC for a first look at the Fall 2017 collections. The hair (and the fashions) didn’t disappoint, with textured coifs, sleek ponytails, and ethereal waves waltzing down the runways.
We spoke to the lead stylists for Zang Toi and Jonathon Simkhai to find out how to get the look.
Zang Toi // French Twist Chignon
Lead Stylist: Eiji Yamane for Macadamia Professional
How to get the look:
Step 1: Evenly distribute Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion, section hair and blow dry.
Step 2: Create a central part and pull back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck – pulling tightly to ensure the top of the head is smooth and sleek.
Step 3: Separate ponytail into three sections and braid all the way through the length of the ponytail. Secure ends with an elastic.
Step 4: Fold new braid in half. After you tucked the braid up, pin it into place with the bobby pins
Step 5: Using a hair extension matching the color of hair, take one section and clip it under the braid and curling up, create a large loop wrapping around to the right side of the braid. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 6: Repeat step 5 at the top section and middle section to create a loose, “crescent” chignon, ensuring the inside braid is completely covered.
Step 7: Spray with Macadamia Professional Style Lock Strong Hold Hairspray to lock in place.
Step 8: Using a comb, gently smooth out all hair that is pulled back one last time and apply Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream to tame any flyaways.
Step 9: To complete the look, liberally spray Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Dry Oil Micro Mist for added shine and luster.
Jonathon Simkhai // The Regal Pony
Lead Stylist: Justine Marjan, TRESemmé Global Stylist
How to get the look:
Step 1: Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and Conditioner.
Step 2: Prime hair with 5-7 pumps of the TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray to maximize styling results.
Step 3: Blow dry hair smooth and create a clean, center part. Spray a brush with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hairspray and brush through to smooth hair.
Step 4: Gather hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and curl the ponytail using a 1.25” inch curling iron
Step 5: Wrap a piece of hair around the ponytail and secure with a bobby pin. Brush through the curls with your fingers.
Step 6: Run the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum through the length of the ponytail to keep hair looking silky smooth, healthy and polished.
Step 7: Finish the look by using TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Firm Hold Hairspray and use a toothbrush to pat down any flyaways.
