Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director, Care & Styling, Wella Professionals created an ethereal light and dreamy hair look for the Antonio Marras Fall 2012 show in Milan.
“Antonio always has a strong narrative to his collections, like a beautiful dream, and I wanted to extend this dream like quality to the hair look. I wanted the hair to feel romantic, light and almost as if it was styled by nature, with a textured quality to it” said Eugene. “There was also a slight Asian feeling to the collection with a classic Asian color palette of black, red and gold, which gave the hair a slightly ‘geisha’ feel.” Eugene added.
Get the Look:
· Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner.
·Roughly dry the hair with a blow dryer and spray Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz into the roots and dry backwards away from the face – the Ocean Spritz takes away any remaining moisture in the hair and makes it light and fluffy with a ‘fly away’ feel.
·Next, run straightening irons through the length of the hair to create an almost static feel to the hair.
·Allow the hair to fall into a natural centre parting, then brush back and tie in to a loose ponytail with elastic.
·Once tied, let the ponytail drop a little to form a ‘baggy’ underneath section.
·Twist the ponytail and wrap it around itself, tying it into a knot, pulling the remaining hair through the knot, and pinning the knot into place.
·Massage the ends of the knot with fingers to add a little lightness, then blow the hair forward with the dryer from the back of the head towards the front. At the same time spray in the direction of the air with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray.
·For the show, Eugene finished off with a light spray of gold hair color spray around the front of the face to give a little luminescence under the show lights.
