The hair look at the Helmut Lang, A/W 2014 show in New York was strict, sharp, simple and beautiful. Inspired by the abstract aerial prints of the lunar landscape that featured in the collection, stylist Eugene Souleiman took this space age theme and ran with it, creating a hair look that could take you from New York to the outer echelons of space. “I wanted to create a hair look that was technical and almost geological in feel, to complement the textures and patterns of the collection. I felt that the hair needed to be both abstract yet precise and I wanted to incorporate different textures in to the same hair look,” Eugene stated.
The use of a spring comb to pull the hair off the face added a graphic edge to the front of the hair. The middle section of hair maintained a satin texture over the crown which then led to an ultra-matte ponytail. The end hair look being an abstract combination of texture and shape in one style.
Get the Look:
1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.
2. Next, blow dry the hair away from the face, keeping it flat to the head and avoiding too much volume.
3. Once the hair is completely dry, section the hair over the crown from ear to ear and create a ponytail in the middle of the head. Secure with elastic.
4. Next, take the front section of hair and bush it back away from the face. Then, using Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray, spray the roots of the hair to add some texture.
5. Take a spring comb and cut it to fit the front of the head from ear to ear around the hair line. Push the spring comb gently back through the hair to create "grooves" in the front section of hair.
6. Brush the remaining hair back and tie in to the existing ponytail to create one ponytail in the middle of the back of the head.
7. Finally, spritz the ponytail again with Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray to create a raw, matte texture.
