Working At Derek Lam Fall NYFW 2014

Orlando Pita called us together early in the morning at the site for the Derek Lam fashion show and gave us a demo. For this show, the hair was inspired by different ethnic tribes. This particular look evolved...first at the trial he created a different hairstyle for Derek and as they were changing it, Derek said, "Stop! That's it!"

To begin with, we blew dry the hair with Phytovolume actif, when we were done blowdrying we then parted it down the middle. Next, taking the hair in large sections, we made soft waves using the T3 Bodywaver Curling Iron.
 If you have long hair and are tired of the barrel curls or the waves, which is considered old school, get this tool!
We then secured the middle part and front section of hair with Phyto Strong Sculpting Gel and Phyto Glossing Cream (only the front). We slicked back the front and made a ponytail.

 Taking the ponytail in one hand high into the air, we then backed-brushed the tail from the the end of the tail to the base of the tail using a large Mason Pearson brush.
After all the hair was backed-brushed we then lightly smoothed the surface of the tail.. We finished the look by spraying the hair with Phytolaque from Phyto. Take a look at Orlando working his magic..

 The incredible Tom Pecheux doing amazing makeup!

Fall 2014 is all about sporting a non-descpipt look for the everyday. It's more about your natural length rather than the long flowing tresses of years past...

Thanks Orlando Pita for a great show!!
