After his first collection debuted last season, Mathieu Mirano had established himself as a luxurious womenswear designer with an eye for sophistication and glamour. For his second collection, however, the young designer worked some tougher elements like fur and leather into his elegant designs to give his girl more of an edge. This contrast extended to the hair as well. "You get the best of both worlds with this look," said Rita Marmor, lead hairstylist for Oribe Hair Care, backstage at the runway show at Lincoln Center. Rita created a low ponytail with lots of natural texture paired with a sleek, polished front. "You get the luxurious feeling from the glossy front and a roughness from the ponytail," Rita explained. "We did a center parting, which emphasizes a really strong woman, but she still has a little softness and coolness about her."
Get the Look:
1. Part hair down the middle, then mist with Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray from roots to mid‐lengths. Dry product into hair with a Mason Pearson brush.
2. Once hair is dry, use Oribe Superfine Hair Spray and a comb to gather hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Tie hair with an elastic bungee.
3. Run a little Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse through the lengths of the hair and blow-dry. Mist the ponytail with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to break up the strands and give it some texture.
4. Finish the look by smoothing a very small amount of Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil on the front for shine.
