Mexican designer Paola Hernández presented her Spring 2014 Collection titled “Singularity,” at Chelsea art space Churner and Churner Gallery during New York Fashion Week. The collection portrays the notion of Singularity with pleats that represent the unfolding of the spark in each of our hearts.
To complement the fashions, the hair of the models were made sleek but also featured an unexpected twist of a tight, center braid, creating a strong, yet feminine look.
“Paolas’ collection this season has strong shapes but have a beautiful fluid movement so I wanted the hair to reflect that with the strength of the braid and soft flow of shin, silky, straight hair,” said Jenny Balding, Cutler Salon Stylist & Redken Grooming & Styling Expert. “This look can be worn really at any time but it’s a fantastic alternative to wearing your hair down for an evening look.”
Here’s how you can get the look, and watch the video below to see exactly what Jenny did to achieve the bold hair style.
•Blow dry very straight with Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion
•Section a mohawk section of 2″ width coming into a point at the nape.
•Apply Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion again to this section as it will help hold the braid. Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape and secure with small band.
•Finish with Cutler Flyaway Stick on stray hairs to keep the look polished.
