The Libertine FW 2016 collection is inspired by designer Johnson Hartig’s love of art and travel. After spending weeks in Tibet with the Nepalese monks, he was inspired by artist Niki de Saint Phalle’s tarot garden, mysticism and trekking Mount Everest.
“Working with Johnson always brings out the fun, edgy, creative side of the TIGI team. We decided to go with an untroubled look that includes a messy braid on one side and undone, natural texture on the other side. To tie the look back into the whimsical collection, we added the barrettes to the back of the head for an unexpected, additional pop of color,” explains Thomas Osborn, TIGI US Session & Creative Director.
Get the Look!
1. Prep hair with CATWALK by TIGI Bodifying Spray and blow dry with fingers for a natural texture.
2. Next, split hair into two sections at the back and braid the left section of hair beginning behind the ear, and low at the hairline switching between 3-, 2- and 4-strand techniques. Secure with an elastic and pull at the braid to achieve a messy texture.
3. Roughly tousle hair at the root with fingers and finish with CATWALK by TIGI Work It Hairspray.
4. Clip barrettes at random in the back of the head.
