Get the Look: Laid-Back Elegance at TOME

For TOME's recent Resort 2016 presentation in New York City, hairstylist Dale Delaporte from Prema Salon NYC was inspired by Dorothy Parker and an element of casual elegance when creating the luxurious, yet laid-back locks for the models. According to Dale, the look at TOME was based on "the girl that falls on the 'street' side of elegant, so the hair had to represent that. This collection has a lot of volume and some really interesting shapes, so the hair needed to stay controlled and casual. The product usage is minimal, as is the styling; but ultimately when teamed up with the collection, it is the perfect marriage. It's all about the hair looking gentle and effortless, but personalized for each individual girl."
