#NYFW Backstage Beauty: Katie Gallagher Fall 2015
For Fall/Winter 2015, the look at Katie Gallagher was designed to be effortless, natural, and oh-so-New York. We caught up with lead stylist Amy Farid for amika on the creation of the enviably textured hair. The key, she explained, was to work through hair using her fingers (talk about easy and on-the-go: brushes were barely used in the creation of this look!) and recognizing the necessity of adding product for that extra wispy texture (relying on amika Un.Done Texture Spray). The hair was finished by tucking it into the clothing for a bundled, cozy feel that allowed the capes and necklines of the collection to shine.
This, coupled with a coveted red lip created by Romero Jennings for MAC and matching nails by Claire Beaudreault for Pop Beauty, rounded out the total beauty look.
Here’s how to recreate the hairstyle:
1. Create a natural, center part and apply amika Bombshell Blowout Spray to dampen hair. Massage the product into the hair.
2. Lightly blow-dry hair with amika Power Cloud Repair + Smooth Dryer, using fingers to act as a diffuser.
3. Once hair is dry, use amika Digital Titanium Glide Styler to create a bend (not curl!) in the hair. To do this, wrap hair around the styler as if to curl it, but instead of keeping hair tightly wrapped, glide the styler up and down the strands of hair to create the bend.
4. Spray amika Un.Done Texture Spray into hair and finish the look by leaving hair tucked into the clothing.
