NYFW Hairstyles How To: Katya Leonovich S/S 14

At Katya Leonovich's Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show at The Studio at Lincoln Center, lead hairstylist Moiz Alladina aimed to reinvent the classic pompadour.

"Her clothes have a bit of an edge, so we wanted the hair to reflect that," said Moz. The structural style combines two classic looks into one fresh new updo: the pompadour in the front morphs into a faux bob in the back.

The look was finished by a few free-flowing pieces in the front pulled across the face to soften the look.

Read on to see how he created the look!


Get the Look:

1. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to the root of dry hair starting from the temples all the way back to the crown. Blow dry Grandiose into hair with a round brush, lifting up for volume at the root. Twist the ends up and out of the way.

2. With a paddle brush, brush the sides of the hair back, spraying with Superfine Hair Spray for a smooth finish. Secure sides with bobby pins.

3. Gather all the hair at the back of the head. Starting from the ends, roll the hair under, tucking it in at the nape of the neck and securing with bobby pins.

4. Take hair from the crown and spray with Thick Dry Finishing Spray and backcomb at roots to create a lot of volume. Gently brush hair up and back away from the face to create a sleek pompadour, but allow a few pieces hang free at the front.

5. Tuck ends of pompadour underneath the hair roll at the back of the head and hide with bobby pins. Spray back of hair with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray for softness and a little shine.

6. Spray pieces of hair hanging in front with Superfine and quickly run over with a flat iron. Finish the whole look with Superfine.
