We woke up bright and early this morning to get a sneak peek of the hair look for Peter Som’s Fall 2012 show. Wella Professional Global Creative Director of Care & Styling, Eugene Souleiman helped us read between the lines of the sleek, yet carefree, hair that would walk the runway.
“It's masculine in the front and feminine in the back, “ he explained, as he wanted to keep a sleek, minimalistic feel that was sophisticated without being so serious to compliment the collection’s structured silhouettes. “I wanted to stay away from color and focus more on texture.”
He first washed and conditioned the hair using Wella Professional Enrich Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment, to strengthen, moisturize and provide locks with shine. He prepped the tresses with Stay Brilliant Color Protecting Lotion and blew it dry with a large round brush for texture. Next a deep side was smoothed down flat with a tight ponytail at the nape of the neck. The tail of the pony was then sprayed with Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray, twisted into a bun and blasted with the blow dryer. Sculpt Force Flubber Gel slicked down the front to make it look wet and shiny. The bun was undone and the back was sprinkled lightly with baby powder and backcombed a bit to create even more texture and volume. This look certainly breathes new life into the undone ponytail!
