#NYFW Backstage Hair Report: David Tlale Spring 2015
Like the clothes, the beauty look was also bold yet polished. Rihanna’s go-to hair stylist and Motions Global Ambassador, Ursula Stephens was backstage to help create a charming textured faux bob for the runway. The look is easy to create a home. All you need is some time and patience.
Here’s how you can achieve the look at home. On dry hair, carefully and deliberately part the hair down the middle. Once done and using Motions® Shine Enhancing Pomade on the fingertips, grab an even smaller section of hair to create a thin braid using the cornrow technique and working the hair into a three strand braid at the bottom. The product will help you smooth the hair and give you a better grip.
Now that you’ve got that settled. Section the hair for easier management and pin with it hair clips.The next step is to tease the sections. Work the hair from root to ends to create some body and texture.
Once you’ve teased the hair, grap your favorite flat brush and gently smooth the surface of the teased hair and section into two halves, securing each with a clear elastic. From there to shape the hair into the “faux bob”by tightly tucking each section under and securing with pins.
Remove the hair clips and use a crimping iron to create texture, spraying Motions® Light Hold Working Spritz on each section. Once the crimps are set, gently brush out and carefully lay hair over the faux bob foundation, tucking under with pins.
The complement the hair, the beauty team created a softer look with a sassy lip. The look explained, MAC’s Louise Zizzo, was inspired by “strong, confident woman.”
So the skin was fresh, the eyes also were barely made and there was just a bit hint of mascara. The lips were mesmerizing. Zizzo, explained Tlale wanted a strong lip. To create the look, Louise, used an orange lipstick, currant lip pencil and finished the look of by applying bronze powder pigment to finish the lips.
