Beauty Trends NY Spring 2009: Proenza Schouler and Monique Lhuillier
Proenza Schouler Spring 2009 Hair Report: Industrial Meets Deco
Hair Lead: Didier Malige for ghd
ghd Lead: Omar Lopez
The Look: Jack and Lazaro rocked the runway by merging a military feel with late 70s and early 80s inspired shapes and lines, to create a collection that was equal parts tough, confident and feminine.
The ghd Way: To compliment the juxtaposed runway looks, Didier Malige for ghd led the Directive Team to create a deeply parted, eye-sweeping finger wave, artfully pulled back to one side and cascading down one shoulder.Using the ghd IV mini styler, a modern “finger wave” was created by sectioning off hair, and starting at the crown gently rocking the iron back and forth all the way to the ends. Then, ghd sea spray was worked through the model’s hair to soften the wave and add light hold. Next, the hair wasset with clips around the face to help accentuate the waves. Finally, the clips were removed, and the hair was swept back to one side and secured
using bobby pins, while the front fell loosely over one eye a la 1970s Jerry Hall. The look was finished with ghd ultimate hairspray.
Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 Hair Report: Luxurious Tropical Island Chic
Hair Lead: Eugene Souleiman for ghd
The Look: Dry, crisp fabrics, straw braiding techniques, basket patterns and wave prints evoke thoughts of tropical vacations entrenched in relaxation, glamour and luxury.
The ghd Way: Since this girl is all about heading from the beach to cocktails at sunset, an easy, relaxed chignon was the perfect compliment to the summer-inspired collection. First, the ghd IV styler was used to straighten the hair. Then, ghd sea spray was applied around the roots and blown out with a diffuser to create a texture-laden base. Next, the model’s hair was finger brushed away from the face, gathered into a pony and half-twisted up. Then, the hair was
twisted back around and secured into place, leaving the ends loose. To create a wind-swept look, Eugene and the Directive Team applied ghd sea spray to their hands and lightly roughed up the sides and front of the hair with their palms. Finally, a fine mist of ghd ultimate hairspray was applied to ensure that the look stayed put… The result? Summer-inspired perfection!
