For NYFW Chromat’s Fall 2015 runway show, key hairstylist Amy Farid wanted something graphic to complement Becca McCharen’s designs, which were made of synthetic materials like latex and TPU (a synthetic plastic).
The main look, a high and tight ponytail, was achieved with generous amounts of Superfine Hair Spray and Shine Light Reflecting Spray. “I wanted to add height and drama to the collection with the hair, making it look wet, slick and shiny,” explained Farid. “I also incorporated latex from the collection into the look by wrapping it around the high ponytails.”
Get the Look:
- 1. Prep dry hair with Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray.
- 2. Blow-dry the hair straight with a Mason Pearson brush, directing the hair backwards.
- 3. Use generous amount of Superfine Hair Spray and brush hair back into a very high ponytail. It’s helpful to tilt the head all the way back to get the necessary height. Secure with a bungee. Use a fine-tooth comb and more Superfine Hair Spray to get rid of any bumps and achieve a slick and smooth look.
- 4. Apply Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream on the ponytail and create a thick rope braid. Mist the braid with Superfine Hair Spray and secure the end with an elastic, leaving about an inch of hair left at the end.
- 5. Wrap latex around the rope braid. Finish the look with a lot of Shine Light Reflecting Spray for a shiny, almost wet, appearance.
