At Skaist-Taylor last weekend, the ’70s were back in a big (hair) way. The collection, from Juicy Couture founders Gela Nash Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy, was inspired by the legendary LA club The Troubadour in the ’70s. The spot was influential in promoting the careers of dozens of musical legends including Elton John, James Taylor, and Joni Mitchell. Lead stylist for Oribe, Kien Hoang, created the amazing hair on all the models, which was meant to evoke “a lot of freedom, movement, and texture.” Hoang prepped hair with Oribe Foundation Mist before wrapping sections in figure eight formations around french pins.
Sections were then pressed with flat irons and set with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray. About ten minutes before the show was set to start, hairstylists worked frantically to remove the pins, finger comb, and backcomb the newly created tight waves. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray was sprayed all over to achieve the final va-va-volume.
