Oasis is theme behind DVF’s Spring 2014 Collection and designer Diane von Furstenberg defined the concept as, ”…an unexpected source of renewal, serenity and beauty.” From the fashions to the beauty to the hair, the feeling at her New York Fashion Week show was fresh and soft.
Inspired by the natural beauty of the models’ freshly washed hair as they arrived for fittings, Diane tasked Lead Hairstylist Orlando Pita to create a look that retained an “undone” quality for the show’s hair. He left the hair down with a middle part and created soft waves using an over/under technique with a CHI ARC iron. Said Pita, “We’re using the shape of the tool to create natural ridges with an s-curl pattern because that is how the hair waves naturally.”
Here are the steps to recreate the look:
Spray BioSilk Volumizing Hairspray all over to add a little texture to hair.2
For added lift and volume, apply BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder to the roots.3
Create a clean and precise middle part.4
Select a 1-inch section of hair and start about mid length (or wherever your hair naturally waves) by pressing hair under the small clamp of the CHI ARC and, using an over/under technique, alternate on the top and underside of hair in an “S” wave pattern down the length of the hair.5
Repeat with additional 1-inch sections to curl the remainder of hair.6
Apply BioSilk Silk Therapy from mid-length to ends for a glossy, smooth and healthy-looking finish.
