NYFW Hairstyles How To: Mara Hoffman S/S 2014

Mara Hoffman Spring/Summer 2014

Hair by CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin

embracing the rainbow for its positivity, diversity, and ultimately, for serving as a symbol of light, love, and manifestion. The collection looks at different cultures and cosmic spaces seen through a prism of colors. Both classic and new shapes are brought to life with vibrant color palettes in chiffons, CDCs and cottons, pushing this season to be one of the brightest and boldest yet. Once again, Hoffman and CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin pair up to develop a unique braided look that evokes the happiness and bold aesthetic seen throughout the collection.  

Overall Look:  Exaggerated and embellished braids   


Prep hair with ample CATWALK by TIGI Curlesque Strong Mousse, working it from roots to ends and brushing through with a paddle brush while creating a defined center part from hairline to nape.
Starting with the left side of the head, gather hair and begin french braiding directly behind the ear, securing the end with a small elastic. Repeat on the right side. TIP: Use a bit of Session Series True Wax on tips of fingers to keep bits from escaping the braid.
Next, using pre-braided wefts of hair, attach to each braid using elastic string, making sure to secure tightly. Set braids with Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray.
Using a colorful woven belt, bind the two braids together in a small section at the nape of the neck and pin in place, tucking away the ends
Spray the crown and hairline with Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray for added shine.
