There was a time when fashion week was limited to the lucky editors, buyers, stylists, and select celebrity clients the designer invited to watch the show (save for the slideshow of images that eventually made their way online). But now, with the ability to stream, well, everything, anyone can sit in on the fashion week fun. Enter then designer Charles Youssef's virtual reality show. The designer partnered with Tresemmé to film in a Manhattan rooftop garden, allowing a 360 view of the catwalk and surrounding New York City skyline as if you’re sitting front row.
One of our favorite parts about the experience: The bohemian not-quite-half-up-but-not-quite-an-updo style that hair pro Orlando Pita designed for the event. (Study the hair blowing in the late summer breeze from all angles in the VR film, below, and tell us you don’t want to wear it for most of fall.)
“Charles [the designer] likes when hair is less constructed and has a more natural texture,” Pita told us. “We filmed on Saturday and there was supposed to be a hurricane—but we ended up having beautiful light and great wind, which gave the hair a nice movement.” Wind-friendly hair? Now that’s something we’re on board with. “The style is mostly pinned up, with the remaining 40 percent hanging down.”
To get the up/down style, Pita first divided hair into three sections: a smaller one at the bottom and two larger chunks on top, parted down the center. He put the lower part into a pony (to get it out of the way), and then loosely rolled each top piece inward—draping it over the tops of ears—and fastened each into small ponytails at the back. Next, he crisscrossed the remaining lengths and pinned them into a chignon to create a “barrette” effect.
To finish: the lower pony came out, he misted it with Tresemmé Perfectly Undone Sea Salt Spray, and then created uneven, S-shaped waves with a curling iron. (If you have natural curls, skip the last part and leave them do their thing.) “There’s a bit of romance to it,” he says. In love, indeed.Read more at:evening gowns | short formal dresses
