Hair by Kien Hoang for Oribe Hair Care
itled [Waves], was an avant-garde exploration of the ocean and the unpredictable patterns of the sea. Showcasing a collection of structured pieces and flowing fabrics in colors reflective of the ocean and its shimmering waves, the designer played with a more feminine approach this season that she fused with the futuristic elements that have become her signature. To complement the clothes, lead hairstylist and Oribe Educator Kien Hoang created an updo that looked like a windswept ponytail frozen in time. “We’re creating a very dry matte texture for this look,” Kien said. “It’s very feathery and light to mimic what your hair might look like after a long day at the beach.”
; 1. Spray sections of hair with Imperméable and pass over with a flatiron until all
hair is perfectly straight.
2. Spray roots of hair with Dry to take away shine. Gather hair in a tight ponytail at the crown of the head and tie with an elastic.
3. Bring ponytail forward and lay flat to head and hold down with one hand. With the other hand, start to twist and wrap the ponytail around its base in a clockwise formation until the ends are pointing forward again. Secure twisted part of hair with bobby pins.
4. Rub Smooth Style Serum into hands and smooth into the ends of hair to create piecey separation. Flat iron the ends one more time so they are as straight as possible.
