Mischo Beauty Covers Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Sebastian Professional, Wella & Malandrino Fall 2009/#NYFW

My absolute favorite show for hair, during fashion week, was the Catherine Malandrino show! The inspiration for the look was drawn from the Surrealist movement, which resulted in the "unexpected and curious".

Eva Scrivo, owner of Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, customized 90 colored extensions exclusively with Wella Professionals color. Large and small panels of hair were colored in sections of varying widths, so when the hair overlaps in the updo, the colors weave together for a very natural effect, similar to that of wood grain.

Hair was prepped using Sebastian Professional Shine Define to protect it from hot styling tools and also to leave a shinier finish. Next, the hair was tightly combed up to the front/top of the head into one ponytail and sprayed with Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity and Re-Shaper.

The hair was then separated into three sections and extensions were added to create three-four chignons interweaving pieces from the models' real hair.

Shaper Zero Gravity is a dry, brushable lightweight control hairspray and Re-Shaper is a brushable, humidity resistant strong hold hairspray.

The chignons were secured with bobby pins and netting.

As you can see the colored extensions add depth and dimension, while perfectly blending together to add both color and life to the collection. Love it!
