Another amazing day of fashion and hair at NYFW for the S/S 2010 collections today. The day started early with prep for Australian designer Tony Maticievski's show. The collection was stunning with catwalk couture gowns in distressed neutral tones coupled with a super cool hairdo. Lead stylist, one of New Yorks finest and Australian expat the legendary Rodney Cutler designed a chic, rock'n'roll frech twist with a textured coif on top. The hair was pulled back sleek and smooth on the sides with a shiny natural finish and secured with an elegant twist at the back. then the top was backcombed and placed section by section into a dramatic messy high coif. The whole look was finished with flowers and brooches in the hair.
Then there was the Rebecca Taylor show. It's so exciting to see Kiwi designers showing at the pinnacle of fashion and she is a real sweetheart too, so it makes her success even nicer. The hair was gorgeous. It was quite severe with a hint of cuteness, which really offset the fun nature of her collection. Lead stylist Dai Mashishita designed a chignon look with an edge. The hair was first smoothed at the roots and midlengths with straightening irons, and then parted severely down the middle and pulled down and back into a ponytail at the nape. any flyaways were smoothed out by sprayin Redken Workforce 09 onto our hands and lightly smoothing it over to keep the hair looking natural and product free. then the hair was formed into a bow shaped chignon at the nape using elastic to secure it rather than pins. All in all it was a very tricky hairdo to do especially on the Senagalese girl with afro hair cut into a short crop!!!
