Backstage Hair Styling at Kate Sylvester SS 2010-11 at RAFW 2010

RAFW 2010: Hey Boys and Girls at Kate Sylvester

Even though the model line-up at Kate Sylvester was female, there were two looks: boys and girls. Kenneth Stoddart, Redken Hair Director, explained that it was all about "extremities and polaristaion: long/short, boys/girls." For the 'boy' style, he created a low side part and used Redken Stand Tough to slick back the hair on the hair line and pull it into a low knot at the base of the neck. The knot wasn't the focus and it was flattened as much as possible, it was really all about how the hair looked at the front.

The 'girl' style on the other hand was all about "long, fine hair" that was inspired by the billowing curtains that provide the backdrop for the runway. There's a "floaty, soft wave" put in and most models had extensions added for length. To take out any unwanted thickness, Kenneth and co created a "braided undercut" that started a couple of inches out from the ear and sat about 1.5 inches below the crown and two inches above the nape of the neck. The hair then fell over the top of this disguising it—very clever and not something I'd seen before. Apart from that it was an easy style to create, using Guts Volumising Mousse. The part was clean and the hair was blow-dried back and pinned back behind the ear to set in place. A 1.5 inch barrel tong was used to create a random loose kink throughout. Which is your favourite style?
