It was only a few days ago that I arrived home from New York, but it seems like a world away now. I had the most amazing time creating some fun hairdos on incredibly beautiful girls for amazing, talented designers. i think my all time favourite backstage experience was Betsey Johnson. Held at New York's awe inspiring Plaza Hotel on Central Park, the DJ busted out Beastie Boy's hits, and Betsey sprinkled petals around the room, while the hair stylists had fun building, big, mad hairstyles. The brief from the lead hairstylist Peter Gray, was literally, go mad. have fun, the bigger the better.
The Tadashi show was a little more controlled, with lead stylist Rodney Cutler looking for a youthful, relaxed look to the hair. Hair was sprayed with Redken Workforce 09, then twiwted and heated with a dryer before being brushed out to create a airy, cottony texture. The it was simply twisted and pinned low behind each ear before being twisted again as a whole into a chignon at the occipital bone.
Brazilian Designer Carlos Miele showed a sexy and sophisticated range complimented by elegantly dishevelled hair. The hair was was set on large curling irons and then brushed out to give a light carefree wave.
