Hairstyles How To: Missoni Spring/Summer 2013 Milan

The hair look at the S/S ’13 Missoni show in Milan reflected the sporty, futuristic feel of the catwalk collection. The dual textured hair creation was designed to look contemporary and abstract with an obvious strength, “I want it to look like the girls have been wearing a bandana for a while and have then taken it off, so the hair look is strong like ethereal athletes.” says Eugene Souleiman, Wella Professionals Global Creative Director, Care and Styling.

The iridescent fabric of the collection provided a contrast to the raw effect hair. The hair look felt contemporary and structured, with a sharp silhouette of hair close to the head and free, ethereal ends.

Talking about the overall influence, Eugene comments “I enjoy being free to delve into unchartered territory and with this look I’ve really been able to do that. The top of the hair is strict whilst the bottom is free.  By juxtaposing two different textures the contrast in the styling effect is striking.”


Get the Look:
·Start with clean freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner, to preserve the brilliant shine of color treated hair.

·Blow dry the hair with Wella Professionals Flowing Form Smoothing Balm to create the perfect base for styling.

·Create a deep centre parting and section the hair around the crown and tie out of the way. Divide the hair underneath into three sections and tie down with elastic at the nape of the neck to remove the volume at the back of the head.

·Smooth down the underneath sections of hair with Wella Professionals Curl Craft Wax Mousse, pushing the mousse right into the roots to keep the hair flat to the scalp.

·Release the underneath of the top section of hair and smooth down the side sections. Spray with Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray from right at the root to half way down the head for a flat and strong shape that emphasizes the shape of the head.

·Bring the front sections of hair around the face in front of the ear and expose the ear, flattening the hair in front and behind, again spraying with Ocean Spritz.

·Smooth down the back of the head to further emphasize the curved shape, stopping at just under ear level.

·When all the hair has been released spray the whole top section with Ocean Spritz and brush through to enhance the textured, matte effect created by the spray.

·Tie a hair net around the top of the head and secure at the back to push the product into the hair. Blow dry the hair with a diffuser to set the mousse and spray that has saturated the top of the head.

·Once the hair is dried, pull out sections of the free ends to create a raw texture and spray lightly with Ocean Spritz.
