The upcoming spring season’s general trend embraced mystical movement and free spirited style. Braids and loose curls were prevalent on the catwalk to accompany each structured and sophistication collection. The graceful styles and designs created were a perfect complement to spring’s contrary forces of fashion.
TOME: EVO, Lauren McCowan, Hair Director and Stylist
Lauren’s direction was to create a whimsical, free flowing look to match the soft and subtle, feminine form of the Tome line. She composed the style of an Indian wedding braid with a part in the middle. The formation was inspired from a two strand fishtail braid. To mold structure and secure the design, Ms. McCowan used all EVO products. Mister Fantastic prepped the hair creating texture and shine. Helmet Hairspray was used for brush-able hold without the crunchy effect and End Doctor controlled flyaways while sealing in the final display.
Christian Siriano: Sebastian Pro, Anthony Cole
Anthony Cole and his team wanted to present the look and feel of next day glamour preserved. His highlight and signature feature in this collection was the continuous pin curl. Anthony used Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity Hairspray to create waves and maintain flexible style throughout, forming each strand. He finished the look with Sebastian Shaper Fierce Finishing Hair Spray to build up and freeze the intended design.
Sherri Hill: CHI, Tammy Mixon, Lead Stylist
Tammy wanted to debut a fresh and light look for spring. Her aim was to show off the neck line and create a silhouette that matched the ultimate shape of the various dresses presented in the collection.
Ms. Mixon began the process with CHI Miss Universe Style Illuminate Restage Dry Shampoo for texture and lift. Tammy then used the Miss Universe CHI 1 ¼” Titanium Curling Iron to form the luxurious and luscious churls. She then used CHI Miss Universe Style Illuminate Flexible Hair Spray, Work Your Style to form and mold the hair. And finally to sum up the style, Tammy used CHI’s Miss Universe Style Illuminate Firm Hair Spray, Rock Your Crown to seal in the fashionable finished look.
