Catwalk by TIGI Backstage at Mara Hoffman Get The Look



Show: Mara Hoffman Autumn/Winter 2015

Hair: Catwalk by TIGI US Creative Director Thomas Osborn

Inspiration: Mara Hoffman’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection inspired by the ‘spirit of Europe's wild men’ and none other than Luke Skywalker. Acting as the glue to connect the Earth to the Sky, this spirit assumes a dual personality – crossing the line between human and animal, and civilization to wilderness. To compliment her Jedi-inspired collection, Hoffman teamed up with Catwalk by TIGI US Creative Director Thomas Osborn to create the intergalactic warrior tresses for the runway.

“This collection is about keeping your feet on the ground, hands in the sky, and allowing the force to be with you at all times.” ~ Mara Hoffman


Overall Look: Lady Luke Skywalker

How-To:
Prep the hair with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Salt Spray and create a clean center part from hairline to nape, securing hair in two low ponytails (for the time being)

Use a paddle brush and a bit of Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Work It Hairspray to smooth hair and set the severity of the part

Using pins, secure one extra-long, pre-made braid (using extensions) just behind the ear and cross over the crown.

Repeat with a second pre-made braid in the opposite direction, crossing over the other braid to make an “X” on top of the head

Next, remove elastics from ponytails and begin braiding the ends of the braids into each pony, using a 3-strand technique and incorporating wefts of hair into the braid as you go to add length

Secure each side with an elastic, leaving a significant amount of unbraided hair below the elastic

Secure the two braids together, taking care to hide the pins and create the illusion of intertwined braids

Use fingers to pull on pieces of the braid to create an undone texture and set the look with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Work It Hairspray
