Straight from the Italian Riviera.

Words by

Today’s lesson on how to achieve a glorious mane comes straight from MBFWA.

More specifically, it comes straight from the runway of Albus Lumen, thanks to the hair gods at REDKEN 5TH AVENUE NYC.

Hair director John Pulitano imparted his wisdom on the look he created for the show, which was all beachy waves and laid-back glamour.

It was inspired by the romance of a European summer, and it’s just about the closest we’re getting to the Italian Riviera.

To replicate, follow these three easy steps:

1. Prep the hair by liberally spraying REDKEN Rootful 06 Root Lifting Spray throughout the roots and lengths of damp hair, and then roughly blow dry to accentuate the flyaway, soft texture.

2. Run a medium-sized tong through the hair, leaving the ends out. Follow by lightly spritzing the hair with REDKEN Fashion Waves 07 Sea Salt Spray, allowing the product to absorb and dry into the hair. Gently brush the hair to create soft texture.

3. Spray the hair all over with REDKEN Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray, running your fingers through the lengths to enhance the undone texture.
