GET THE LOOK: CHIARA FERRAGNI’S HOT HAIR LOOKS FROM NY FASHION WEEK

We’ve followed Redken’s Global Fashion Ambassador and one of my favourite bloggers, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad as she unveils her amazing hair looks at New York Fashion Week. Find out how to get these pretty looks below.

 

DAY ONE – THREE OF A KIND

What’s even better than a classic low ponytail? A sleek three-part pony with high shine and unexpected accents. “This look is so versatile and can translate from day to night easily,” says Redken Artist Jorge

Joao. “And it’s simple to achieve – it’s three ponytails that connect into one.” What makes this look really stand out is the black wrapping around each tail, which contrasts perfectly with Chiara’s beautiful blonde. Jorge created the wraps with (get ready for it!) electrical tape. “We wanted something more industrial, something sleek and urban with that NYC touch. The tape gave us that effect and it’s just enough adhesive to work with the hair,” says Jorge. A little tough, a little glam – perfect for front row at Rag & Bone!

GET THE LOOK

1. Starting on dry hair, separate your hair into three sections. Take the first section from the top of your ears to your crown and the second section from the middle of your ears. This leaves your nape. Clip each section to isolate.

2. Starting in the front of the first section, use velvet gelatine 07 to rake back hair. The tail should sit at the center back. You want a tight, smooth look – it might take a couple of tries to get it perfect. Don’t worry, you’ll get it!

3. Apply more velvet gelatine 07 to create a wet look and secure with a hair elastic. Repeat for each section. To recreate Chiara’s look, take some black hair tape and wrap around each elastic.

DAY TWO – CHIC SWEEP

Sometimes, a simple style makes a big statement. Case in point: Chiara’s easygoing side-sweep, which earned The Blonde Salad blogger her most Instagram likes yet. “My followers responded really well to this look,” says Chiara. “It’s a record with 65,000 likes! I love it because my followers can easily recreate it and make it their own.” Redken Artist Jorge Joao started by making a deep side part, then blow- drying hair into place. “You can personalize this style based on your natural texture and mood for the day,” he says. “It’s a very versatile look to suit any occasion.” The finishing touch: A thin barrette that pairs perfectly with the hardware on Chiara’s Burberry trench.

DAY THREE – BLONDE BOMBSHELL

This look is one that is sure to turn heads. For the Diane von Furstenberg and Y-3 shows, Chiara turned up the volume on her hair and her wardrobe with a sexy ’70s inspired blow-dry and a beautifully billowy dress. “The hair is big and voluptuous – kind of a modern day Farah Fawcett,” says Redken Artist Jorge Joao. “It brings glam to any outfit and an instant feeling of sexy.” New York City makeup artist Flynn Marie added to the ’70s glam with a brown smoky eye and classic nude lip. The look transitioned perfectly to the Socialyte Awards, where Chiara was honored as Blogger of the Year.

1. Prep hair with Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.

2. Apply guts 10 to the roots and layer thickening lotion 06 all over. Blast hair with your blow dryer (lengths only) until it’s about 70 percent dry.  Now, use a large round brush to blow-dry in small sections. Direct the roots up and away from your head for maximum volume.

3. When you reach the mid-length of each section, twist the handle of the brush vertically – this will create loose waves with body and movement. Spray forceful 23 on each twist and let cool for at least 5 minutes.

4. Once hair is cool, start breaking the twists to create a full-bodied look. Backcomb lightly at the roots to add a little extra volume, and finish with a light mist of forceful 23.

DAY FOUR – FEELING KNOTTY

Chiara’s look for the nautical-themed Tommy Hilfiger show? Knotted braids paired with beachy waves – plus a shipshape blue-and- white-striped Tommy Hilfiger suit to match. “Both sides of the head tell a story,” says Redken Artist Jorge Joao. “It’s boho chic with a combination of textures. We used the braids as accessories to Chiara’s beautiful waves.” New York City makeup artist Flynn Marie completed the look with a pop of coral on the lips and a neutral eye with lots of lashes.

1. Starting with dry hair, make a deep side part and create a section that runs behind your ear. Clip the rest of your hair out of the way for now.

2. Rub Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine through your hands and create a knot braid (or French braid) down the side. Use powder refresh 01 on the rest, concentrating at the roots. Directional-dry in the front to have forward movement.

3. Rub more Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine through your hands, take two small sections above the knot braid and create two small braids (they should hang over the side braid). Make another small braid on the deep side, coming from under the fringe.

4. Smooth all the braids with Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine and pin in place.
