Take a behind-the-scenes look at hair and makeup from fashion weeks around the globe.
1. Water babies
Slicked-back, saturated, “fresh from the pool” looks were created for the biggest fashion houses around the globe. It’s a new spin on wet looks, with added texture. To achieve the super-saturated style, Sam McKnight uses mousse, as “gel can be difficult to manipulate”, he says. For Guido Paulau, creative consultant for Redken, “It’s easy and effortless, like she’s just come off the beach. It has that wet look without actually having sopping-wet hair.” To create it, wet hair and apply a generous amount of volume spray foam from roots to ends. Scrunch to create a wavy texture, then pull into a low pony, leaving out some pieces around the face. Finish with glistening mist.
2. Natural order
This season is all about natural beauty, which was reinvented in novel and modern ways. Each city had its own distinct personality—in New York we saw more casual and sporty hair, Milan had a very rich feeling, and in Paris we stepped out and really pushed the envelope.
As anyone who follows fashion knows, braids are here to stay. To get the look, divide hair into three sections and French braid, starting in the middle and continuing counter-clockwise around the hairline. Crimping might come in handy to add texture to fine or limp hair.
