Backstage Beauty: Derek Lam and Diane Von Furstenberg Fall 2012

On February 12 Phyto hit the runway with 2 shows: Derek Lam and Diane Von Furstenberg.

DEREK LAM:
 
Key hair stylist: Orlando Pita for Phyto
 
Inspiration: The inspiration was a 60’s college girl who’s an intellectual but a little eccentric. Two voluminous and textured looks were created, for day and evening. The only controlled portion of the hair is in the front, with a side part and a side swept bang.
 
Products Used:
·        Phyto Professional Intense Volume Mousse
·        Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray
·        Phyto Professional Fiber Paste
All products are available at www.beauty.com.
 
Steps:
1. Take a dollop of Phyto Professional Intense Volume Mousse and saturate the hair. Blow dry with T3 Featherweight Hair Dryer, then brush it out.
2.  For those who have straighter hair, curl the hair with T3 Whirl for a natural wave.
3.  Back comb and tease hair. Spray each piece with Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray. Tease again.  Spray.
4.  Spray brush with Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray and create a loose bee-hive, secure hair at the nape of the neck in low ponytail for evening. For day, the hair is pinned underneath by criss crossing pins.
5.  Use Phyto Professional Fiber Paste to add texture and make hair look piecy (or use Phyto Matte Texturizing Paste for fine hair).
6. Finish the look (and side swept bangs) by using Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray.
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG:

Key hair stylist: Orlando Pita for Phyto
 
Inspiration: The inspiration was surrealism. The difference between a meeting and a rendezvous lends to an air of mystery. Diane also plays with the contrast of shiny and matte textures in the collection, which Orlando translated into the hair look by creating extreme shine on portions of the hair with Phyto products.
 
Products used:
·        Phyto Professional Wet Gel
·        Phyto Professional Shine Defining Wax
·        Phyto Phytolisse Finishing Serum  
·        Phyto Phytolaque soie hair spray
All products are available at www.beauty.com.

Steps:
1. Slick hair into a deep side part using PHYTO Professional Wet Gel and place into a ponytail.
2. Twist hair inside of the ponytail tightly with PHYTO Professional Wet Gel on your hands and wrap hair into a bun (tucking in the ends).
3. Use PHYTO Phytolisse Finishing Serum and Phyto Professional Shine Defining Wax over the part to smooth out the hair.
4. Finish the look with PHYTO Phytolaque Soie for hold and shine.
