Anna Lavdaras, HARPER’S BAZAAR
New York City was truly personified at DKNY S/S 2016, with models presenting string, graphic simplicity – appropriate, seeing as the inspiration was the sophisticated architecture of One World Trade Centre.
Beaming skin, the occasional red lip and a blending of masculine and feminine hair had us applauding. Well professionals global creative director Eugene Souleiman was the genius behind the manes, describing it as “the kind of loom I imagine Lauren Bacall would wear if she were a young woman today – graphic, powerful and polished.”
We spoke to Jessica Barr, creative director of Sydney salon Blowdry Boutique, about getting the look at home.
- First, shampoo and follow up with a straightening conditioner.
- I always begin with Miracle Hair Treatment leave-in serum, applying a 20-cent-piece-sized amount through the mid-lengths and ends.
- Shake the hair out well, taking approximately 70 per cent of the moisture out before blow-drying.
- Section off the end, beginning at the nape of the neck in smaller sections, all the way to the crown and through to the front.
- Using a big roller brush, straighten each section and repeat the process over any natural kins or waves.
- To obtain an ultra-smooth look use a god Style to go over hair and lock in moisture and shine.
- To finish the look, part the hair along the three-quarter hairline and comb through a small blob of gloss or oil in a directional line.
- Add a spray or hairspray to hold.
