KAELEN | New York Fashion Week | Spring/Summer 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Amy Friadd for Kate Ryan Inc.

For Kaelen’s tropical-inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection, hairstylist Amy Farid created a clean and innocent look from the ‘70s with a nod to hair icon Marcia Brady. “We wanted that freshly washed, really brushed hair,” explained Farid. “Like how Marcia Brady would brush her hair 100 times before bed.” Farid also made sure to keep the models’ hair tucked behind their ears. Before the presentation, the hair framing the model’s face would show off a natural bend around the cheekbone. Some models also wore a hair clip with fresh orchids on it.

Get the Look:
1. Create a center part and prep the hair with Foundation Mist. Layer on Volumista Mist for Volume and blow-dry the hair with a round brush, creating natural volume at the root. “Depending on the hair’s texture, we would add Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray and Supershine Moisturizing Cream,” noted Farid.
2. Tuck the hair behind the ears, so that over time the hair gets a natural bend around the cheekbone.
3. Brush the hair with a Mason Pearson brush for a super shiny look.
