Lady with an edge.

Words by

Eliza Sholly

You know that messy bun look, that even hours in front of the mirror can't achieve? Well REDKEN Hair Director John Pulitano has got it right. He debuted this up-do for the Oscar de la Renta Show on Day 6 at MBFWA 2016.

The look showcases a fusion of classic elegance and modern power, perfect for those days when you want to look like a lady that’s a bit rough around the edges.

Get the look:

  1. Gently mist ROOTFUL 06 Root Lifting Spray onto the hair and finger dry creating a natural workable texture.
  2. Spray WIND BLOWN 05 Dry Finishing Spray through hair and blow-dry. Create a loose centre part and create two side sections, giving you 3 sections in total... left-side + right-side + back.
  3. Tie the back section into a pony tail at the crown of the head using your hands to give the base natural movement. Then arrange the front two sections back into the same pony.
  4. Pull out the bottom of the pony near the nape to create subtle movement.
  5. Wrap the ponytail hair in a long hair net and pin up into a chignon.
  6. Sprinkle POWDER GRIP 03 Mattifying Powder into the hair framing the face and pull out a few fly-aways.
  7. Tidy and polish the chignon using FASHION WORK 12 Versatile Working Hairspray.

And why you should stop ‘doing’ your hair this year.
Straight from the Italian Riviera.
The rope braid is where it’s at.
No fashion week should be without a good hair director.
Time to give your regular pony a serious shake up.
Breath some new life into your locks.
Backstage with REDKEN.
Continuing its commitment fashion.
The fash-pack have serious style stamina.
Sydney sidewalks burst with bright patterns and bold silhouettes
Drooling over shimmery suit jackets.
Beautiful mermaid sea creatures from outer space.
The street style in Sydney is fierce.

Relaxed, easy going and pretty darn stylish.
Yet another striking and eloquent body of work.
