The Look: Tough Romance
The hair look at the Antonio Berardi S/S ‘15 show was a beautiful exercise in blended textures, with a hint of Japanesque. Said Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director, Wella Professionals, “I took inspiration from the beautiful fabrics and themes in the collection, where Antonio had mixed kimono-style florals with military sharpness. I wanted to interpret these qualities via the hair, so I created a sleek, graphic panel through the top of the head, which was completely flat and shiny, then blended this with a loose, looped ponytail at the back of the head.” “To add a hint of romance, just before the show, I teased out pieces of hair to give a soft, floaty effect, which dramatically caught the light and added graceful movement as the girls walked down the catwalk,” added Souleiman.
1 Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.
2 Rough dry the hair by blasting with a blow dryer, then spray Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz on the roots and blast again to get a textured lift.
3 Next, run straightening irons through the hair to give a sharper, graphic quality to the hair as well as draw out any remaining moisture in the hair.
4 Section out the top middle panel of hair, then starting from the back of the crown, spray Wella Professionals Flexible Finish hair spray close to the roots. Pull back with a fine tooth comb, making sure you keep the tension in place.
5 Once the entire panel has been sprayed and is pulled back, dry the hair with a diffuser to create a perfectly flat finish. Clip in place.
6 Brush the remaining hair with a soft bristle brush to create lightness, then gather the hair back into a loose, low ponytail. Tie with elastic, then loop the ponytail over itself and tie again.
7 Next, secure the top loop to the head, which will give a soft, rolled finish to the side sections.
8 Finish by teasing out small pieces of hair for a soft, flyaway effect.
