Runway Rundown: Paul Mitchell at Milly
The Show: Milly
The Inspiration: “The beauty look references the early ’90s power woman: strong, confident, early Jil Sander. The Milly collection has segments, and each represents the colors of the rainbow. [Designer] Michelle Smith’s idea behind that is, given where we are in the world right now, she wants to be about inclusion, everybody having the right to love who they want to love. The colors of the rainbow symbolize that. So we decided for the hair to go back to the ’90s with a structured ponytail … with a lacquered finish on the sides,” says Silva.
The Hero Product: Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear Orbit Hairspray. “We’re using this to smooth all baby hairs and flyaways—for fine-tuning the final look. After spraying the hair with Orbit, we use the end of a tail-comb and run it perpendicular over the crown to help smooth away any stray hairs, and we do a similar idea over the ponytail, only we use the barrel of a Neuro Unclipped Styling Rod Curling Iron,” says JPMS National Educator Molly Kastner.
