Paul Hanlon for Frederic Fekkai Creates a Pure, Coming-Undone Pony for
Proenza Schouler’s Fall-Winter 2011 Fashion Week Runway Show
Inspiration: Paul Hanlon sought to bring out the purity of the Proenza Schouler collection by keeping hair natural, glossy, and pulled back to accentuate an open neck. He envisioned the hair of a Navajo Indian girl meets an All American girl. The result was hair all one length with soft, razored ends and a style that felt easy, wearable and chic, with a touch of grunge and coming undone.
How to get the look: By adding 22 inch extensions around the crown of the head and paying special attention to any areas with shorter layers, you can achieve a long languid silhouette ready to pull back into this chic pony. Once finished, hair should rest just above the waist. Start by parting the hair slightly off center and apply the Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse to the front of the hair, forming a frame. Next, apply the COIFF Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening Crème and Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Anti-Fade Top Coat to the hair, ironing the front pieces to seal in sleekness and shine. Gather hair midway down the back and pull into a low ponytail and tie the end into a slight knot. To finish the look, spray the Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray and Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray; this will create a dry, rough texture for the back of the hair that makes the style feel relaxed, unique, and individualized.
