Hair @ NYFW – Jeremy Scott

More New York Fashion Week goodness, this time with ‘Barbie Goes Country’ hair madness at Jeremy Scott. Wella Professionals were on board to do the hair styling for the show, and Eugene Souleiman (Global Creative Director, Wella Professionals) had this to say: “I wanted to have fun with the hair and create caricatures as an extension of the girls’ personalities. The collection had a ‘Wild West’ theme featuring cactus and pony-skin prints, but in true Jeremy Scott style, he used lots of bright color and brought a sense of fun and energy to the clothes, and I wanted to do the same with the hair. So we started with a very fresh and pretty, cowgirl look with pigtails in ringlets, but then created a ‘50s style ultra high glamorous bouffant wave on the top of the head. The contrast of the young pigtails against the sophisticated top section created a sense of drama and surprise.” Feeling a bit ‘wild wild west? Get the look yourself –

01) Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner.

02) Prep wet hair with Perfect Setting Blow-Dry Lotion, and blow dry to create a smooth texture. Tong the hair using a wide barrelled hair tong and clip each curl and leave to set.

03) Once the hair has cooled, keep the top section (about 6 curls) pinned on top of the head, and create two sections (parted at the back of the head) in the bottom section. Take each section at a time and gently back comb right at the roots to create a little volume, then fasten in to a low ponytail with elastic and twist the curl into a defined ringlet. Spray with Wella Professionals Super Set Finishing Spray to keep the ringlet in place.

04) Release the top section and back comb each piece to half the length of the hair using as fine toothed comb, the hair should stand up on its own and provide a structure for the ‘bouffant’.

05) Smooth the hair in to one section using a soft bristle brushed, sprayed with Wella Professionals Super Set Finishing Spray, and twist in to a high side flip. Spray with Wella Professionals Super Set Finishing Spray to hold the style.

Product Review: Wella Professionals Enrich Conditioner

I was recently sent the Wella Professionals Enrich conditioner to trial for review, and since starting to use this product I have not looked back. My hair (well, me really…) can be tricky to work with. On the one hand, I love the look and feel of sleek and silky hair, but on the other I like the look of full and voluminous hair. I’ve found it very difficult to achieve both of these at the same time. Thankfully, the Wella Professionals conditioner is helping me to walk this fine line. It took me a couple of days to get used to the product, as after rinsing it doesn’t leave the hair feeling silky (and almost slippery?) like some conditioners do. What it does is leaves the hair feeling stronger. I’ve been using this conditioner every day for the past week or so now and I can see a noticeable and positive difference in the volume and general condition of my hair. The scent of the conditioner is not that strong and hard to describe, but at a pinch I would say it has a fresh and clean scent, not lending itself to floral, fruity or botanical like a lot of my other hair products do. I really like this product and would definitely repurchase in the future. The Wella Enrich Conditioner retails for $24 AUD and is available for purchase from Wella Professional salons.
