Olivia Garden, the world leader in hairbrush innovation and manufacturing, was present in full force at New York Fashion Week for the Fall/Winter 2014 season. With the Company’s brushes used in over 15 different shows, Olivia Garden helps you emulate three hair looks that rocked the runway. Check out these DIY tips straight from behind the scenes at the Erin Fetherston, Charlotte Ronson and Ruffian shows.
HAIR BENDER a DIY from NYFW!
Fashion designer Erin Fetherston chose a 50’s-60’s theme with a Bridgette Bardot feel for her hair creations.
To achieve the smoothness and sleek bang, the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Turbo Vent Boar Round brushes were a must. Hair was parted off at a side angle from the right brow in a clean part to create the over-the-eye swoop. To add slight volume and smoothness to the bang and crown areas, stylists used the NanoThermic Round Thermal brush. With its ceramic, ionic and nano-silver technologies, the hair quickly took to its shape, which is important in the fast pace backstage environment. The hair was then smoothed down into a clean look with the Ceramic + Ion Supreme Combo Bristle Paddle brush and smoothed out without removing too much of the volume from the crown. For longer locks, hair was brought into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and accessorized with a black bow. For shorter hair, the hair was simply brushed smooth. The beautiful result was charm-school, sweet, innocent and simple.
U.S. designer, Charlotte Ronson, known for her impeccable style and trendsetting designs, chose romance as her collection’s theme.
The hair was flirty and fun; every mane was placed in a low bun and accented by colorful velvet headbands. The styling team first detangled with the Divine Wet Detangling brush (DV-1) with its unique Memory-Flex™ bristles and comfortable ball-point tips that gently and easily detangle wet and dry hair. Then they smoothed out the locks with the NanoThermic Round Thermal brush. To pull the hair back and smooth it out in the low bun, they used the Ceramic + Ion Supreme Combo brush. Its unique combination of 100% boar and ionic bristles add shine to the hair while smoothing out all the flyaway. For a few key models, their velvet headbands were further decorated with baroque floral designs in ribbon red or jet black matching their outfits. It was a romantic look for the cool downtown girl.
Rapture was the theme for the Ruffian collection, presented at the world famous Lincoln Center, where designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais explored monastic opulence, tailored volume and religious silhouettes.
The hair was swept back away from the face and worn straight with a lot of body. When the models arrived, their hair was detangled with the Divine (DV-1) Wet Detangling brush. It works perfectly on all hair types – even those with extensions, as was the case for a few models. To create volume and style the hair away from the face, hairdressers next used the NanoThermic Thermal brush. On each side of the face, they took a section from the temple to the ear and wrap the round brush away from the face. The NanoThermic brush was the perfect brush to rapidly create soft volume and it was also used in conjunction with a curling iron to tuck in the ends of the hair. Finally, stylists used the Supreme Combo brush as a finishing brush to control flyaway and add shine throughout the entire mane. As models strutted down the runway, their hair moved in a very natural and flowing way. The result was an ultra-glam look for a stunning, head-turning show.
