Get the Look! Byblos SS2017 Youthful, Sporty Style by Nick Irwin for UNITE

Monday, 03 October 2016 21:10

UNITE artist Nick Irwin created the youthful, sporty hair concept for Byblos Spring/Summer 2017 collection at Milan Fashion Week – learn how to recreate the look!

"The look for Byblos SS17 was a younger, sporty vibe. Clothes were inspired by late 70’s early 80’s ski wear, with color blocking and an element of pop art. We decided to go with a look that was effortless but modern and youthful at the same time. With Byblos being a classic Italian fashion brand we still wanted to pay respect to their history. We imagined her style would be a classic blow dry, but then later she would have been to the gym and clipped bits of her hair back — so this look was 'post workout.' Elements of the hair being beautiful and elements being slightly sweaty. It was about keeping an individuality to the look and not cloning girls, but at the same time keeping a nuance which stayed in tune with the collection. There had to be a lightness to the hair so when the girls walked the hair moved, the key way to make this work was not over use products,” says Nick Irwin.

Get the Look!

Step 1 — To damp hair, I applied UNITE Elevate Mousse to the roots and mid lengths of the hair,  leaving out random strands of hair around the hair line.
Step 2 — The hair was then blown out using a UNITE large round brush to create root lift and a slight bend in the hair. 
Step 3 — Then taking random sections spraying the hair with UNITE Go 365 hairspray with the light setting, the hair was then slightly waved with a curl stick. 
Step 4 — Using the fingers hair was dressed out randomly without over thinking.
Step 5 — The hair through the sides and top was pinned in a irregular fashion, so half up and half down. 
Step 6 — Each girl had her own individual style created by promoting her natural hair line using UNITE 7 Seconds Glossing Spray to make the hair look a little bit sweaty in places.
