L’Oréal Professionnel Master Session Artist, Laura Polko, created the hairstyles for the Houghton Spring 2013 presentation at New York Fashion Week.
"To add a younger vibe, I went for sexy beachy waves and an unstructured bun pinned high up on the head," said Polko.
To create beach waves, Polko prepped hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Mousse Volupte and twisted strands with a curling iron alternately bending the hair to create a more touchable wave.
For the crisp bun, the crown was first gently rubbed with the palms of the hands to create a natural-looking texture. Hair was then brushed back, glossed with L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Rich Oil for vivid shine, and the circular pinned shape was pulled gently apart with fingers for a softer, more approachable look.
