How to Get the Look: NYFW Messy Bun & Natural Waves with Biolage R.A.W.

Textured bun

At Donna Karan's NYFW show this year, Urban Zen, she presented two hairstyles along with her incredible outfits. Throughout the presentation, Donna communicated “the journey of a woman” inspired by a woman that is a warrior and someone who embodies timeless elegance.  Models were naturally styled by leading stylist, Michael Johnson using the Biolage R.A.W. Styling Collection.

Of the looks, Michael Johnson said, "Donna and I agreed that we wanted the girls’ hair to be naturally textured with a slightly smoothed look to really capture the mantra of Urban Zen. The Urban Zen brand is designed to go day into night and climate to climate which is exactly what these Biolage R.A.W. Stylers do for the hair—the two go hand in hand!”
