Inspired by icons from the 1960s from Nancy Sinatra to Jane Birkin, the Unite team picks up bits and details from the era without going into total retro mode for Huishan Zhang's S/S 2016 look at London Fashion Week. "I am totally obsessed with the female celebrities from the 1960s," says Unite Lead Stylist Ali Pirzadeh. He explains that he gave models a side part and some extensions with a lifted boost on the top. "I put Elevate Mousse from the root down to the temples, depending on the girl's length. This gives you a natural lift to it and a drier texture. I wanted it to be a bit texturized," Ali shares. He also created a wave to give the appearance of a natural lift.

Products Used:
Unite Elevate Mousse
Unite 7 Seconds Refresher  
Unite 7 Seconds Glossing

Ali Pirzadeh offers this advice for stylists who would love to get involved in fashion week: Create a portfolio to show what you can do. (It doesn't have to be perfect.) Let people know you want to get involved and that you are willing to assist.
