Ted Gibson Beauty was the hair sponsor for Lela Rose’s Fall 2013 show at Lincoln Center. The show was led by senior stylist and director of education Devin Toth.
Lela wanted mythical and magical hair to be walking down the runway. She expressed that her collection was inspired by fairy tales such as Brothers Grimm and Hansel and Gretel.
Ted Gibson and his group of stylist not only created a fairytale finishing look, but also kept the process of creating look sort of fanciful and magical.
We started by prepping the hair with Build It Blow Drying Agent at the roots for volume and gave the models a quick round brush blowout.
Next we took large sections of hair and tightly wrapped them in figure 8s around rods made from tin foil.
We then flat iron each rod. The metal conducts the heat and it sets the hair into a beautiful imperfect ethereal wave. We sprayed the setting hair with Beautiful Hold Hairspray for hold.
Then we took out the set, back combed the hair and gently pull it back with our fingers into a twist above the nape of the neck. We then tuck it up and secure it with bobby pins.
To keep the fairytale hair grounded and ethereal we added a barrette to the top of the hairstyle and loosely pulled out a few pieces of hair in the front.
