Thomas Dunkin and the Sebastian hair team were on hand styling not one but two hair looks to complement the designer’s visually striking and spontaneous Spring ’12 collection.
Where more posh and polished, Dunkin and team styled romantic side twists.
The Side-Swept Hair Product Cocktail: 1. On damp hair, apply Potion 9 from root to tip. Spritz Volupt Spray on entire head, focusing at the roots, and blow-dry with a large round brush. 2. Set hair in large Velcro rollers and clip to cool. 3. Once cool, remove rollers and run fingers through the curls to loosen them up. 4. Apply a liberal amount of Potion 9 to separate the hair. Create a loose side part, putting into place with fingers and pulling hair down and forward, tuck and secure into a section at the back. 5. Take 3” random sections and twist until happy with placement that softens the face and gives added volume. 6. Finish the look with Shaper hairspray for long-lasting hold.
For the free-spirited Palm Beach-esque looks, Dunkin created chic high buns for models. All adding up to proof of Sebastian’s versatile range of styling products and the limitless possibilities of the stylist’s imagination.
Bun Hair Product Cocktail: 1. On damp hair, spray entire head with Potion 9 Lite for lightweight hold and manageable styling, then blow-dry completely with a round brush. 2. Once the hair is completely dry, gather hair into a high, tight ponytail at the crown. To keep this look smooth and sleek, comb back from the hairline to the base of the ponytail while spraying Shaper Fierce for maximum hold. 3. Secure ponytail with a blax band. Carefully wrap ponytail around a donut, keeping hair very tight with your hands as you go. Secure pieces to the donut with fine pins as you wrap the entire length of the ponytail into a precise and polished bun. 4. Finally, spritz the hair with Shaper hairspray for a look that lasts.
