Malan Breton & ECRU NY at Bridal Fashion Week Get the Look




With invites sent and received, bridal season has arrived! And, of course you’ll want to look stunning whether it’s your big day or your joining in on the festivities. On April 18, From the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York, Malan Breton showed his Spring 2016 Bridal Collection during Bridal Fashion Week with models’ hair coiffed by ECRU NY and we have the “how-to” for both the guys and gals! The inspiration - Aubrey Hepburn for the ladies and James Bond for the gents! 

Aubrey Hepburn Inspired Ponytail

Products Used: Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX, Volumizing Silk Mist, Sunlight Styling Spray, Silk Nectar Serum

How-To:
  • Step One: Section a 2-inch fringe at the front and part that out of the way to incorporate later.
  • Step Two: Then take the rest of the hair and make a high ponytail at the crown of the head. Smooth the sides and back using Sunlight Styling Spray. 
  • Step Three: Now take the front from step 1 and sweep it over to one side and connect it to the ponytail securing it with another hair tie. The sweep of the fringe should be kept high to give a short fringe look exposing the eyebrows. Use Sunlight Styling Spray to help control the direction of the sweep. 
  • Step Four: Curl the ponytail; spray Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX onto small enough sections that fit into a 1-inch diameter curling iron. 
  • Step Five: Take a small piece from the ponytail (1cm diameter). Saturate that piece using Sunlight Holding Spray and wrap that piece around the hair tie, covering the hair tie. Take a curling iron and rest the barrel of the iron on the wrapped piece, going all the way around to help meld the wrapped hair to the ponytail. 
  • Step Six: Pump 1-2 drops of Silk Nectar Serum into your hands and lightly break apart the curls in the ponytail. Brush curls into a soft wave.
  • Step Seven:  For a good hold, spray the look with Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX.

Naeem Khan and Reem Acra Bridal Fashion Week Beauty



Davines capped off Spring/Summer Bridal Fashion Week 2016 on Friday, April 17 with two stunning shows -- Naeem Khan and Reem Acra. From regal to ethereal the looks were breathtaking. The Makeup Examiner received the exclusive “how-tos” from Joseph DiMaggio for Davines for Team TME readers. Oh, and you don’t have to wait until 2016 to coif the styles!

Show: Naeem Khan Spring/Summer 2016 Bridal Fashion Week

Inspiration: “There is nothing as inspiring as the work of Naeem Khan, especially in his bridal collections. Having had the chance to work with him at F/W 2015 Fashion Week, I was thrilled to create the hair look for Naeem’s modern, yet classic bride. I complemented his idyllic beadwork with a demure roped chignon - reminiscent of a flower in bloom. The natural backswept style also provides the perfect frame for the seashell crowns seen throughout the show.”  Lead Stylist, Joseph DiMaggio, Master Session Ambassador for Davines



Naeem Khan Hair Step-by-Step:

Step 1: Prep hair by applying a generous amount of Davines More Inside This is A Volume Boosting Mousse onto fingertips. Distribute thoroughly from roots to ends, keeping hair smooth and in place.

Step 2:  Section hair evenly from ear to ear, creating front and back sections.

Step 3: Using a blow dryer and large round brush, work to create subtle volume and bounce at the crown and top of the head by blowing hair up and away from the face. 

Step 4: *Once dry, use fingers to sweep the hair into a layered ponytail, securing with an elastic tie directly under the occipital bone. Tightly twist into a low bun at the nape of the neck, fasten with pins. Use weft (virtually undetectable strip) extensions, to create two tight twists. Twist these two extension wefts together, creating a “rope braid.” Wrap rope braid around bun to create an elegant flowerlike shape and pin securely. Using fingertips, customize the braid shape by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Texturizing Dust to hands and massaging for additional structural support and texture expansion.

Step 5: Finish by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hold Hair Spray for all over for shine and hold.

*At-home: Following step 4, separate ponytail into two smaller sections and tightly twist each, securing with two small elastics. Wrap into a rope braid and fasten to head with bobby pins in the same fashion.

Show: Reem Acra Spring/Summer 2016 Bridal Fashion Week

Inspiration: “Reem Acra’s intricate bead work and sexy silhouettes are true works of art. Rather than accessorizing with jewelry, she wanted all attention centered around the hair - creating an unexpected piece of bridal ‘jewelry.’ With that, I was able to push my own limits and dream up an avant-garde bridal style. Using long extensions, I crafted a strong structured braid and romanticized it with diamond and pearl accessories of Ms. Acra’s creation.” ~ Lead Stylist, Joseph DiMaggio, Master Session Ambassador for Davines




Reem Acra Hair Step-by-Step:

Step 1:  Prep hair by spraying a generous amount of Davines Essential VOLU Mist at the root. Follow up by brushing Davines More Inside This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse from root to tip to keep it smooth and in place.

Step 2:  Section hair evenly from ear to ear, creating front and back sections.
Sweep hair back in the back section into a ponytail at the occipital bone, secure with an elastic cord. Create a strong center part in the front section and allow to hang loose temporarily.

Step 3:  *Apply More Inside This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse throughout three wefts of extensions. Brush through the length before creating a 12” braided ponytail that falls down the entirety of the back. Attach this extension to the actual ponytail using an elastic cord. Pro Tip: If the natural hair is long, create a braid below where the ponytail is fastened at the occipital bone and fasten to the underside of the extensions using clear elastics. For short hair, wrap hair tightly around the elastic and extension.

Step 4: Brush the front section of the hair back towards the ponytail, smoothing as you go with Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hair Spray.

Step 5: Lace the hair from the front sections underneath the ponytail (including extensions) and continue to wrap around the base creating a thick band over where the extensions meet the base of the head and ponytail. Use pins to secure.

Step 6:  Using a variety of diamonds, pearls and golden wraps, pin and tie throughout the length of the braided ponytail. 

Step 7:  Apply iron on stars sporadically around the head. 

Step 8: Adhere carefully using a hot curling iron.  

Step 9: Control wisps and secure the look by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Strong Hair Spray for all over for shine and hold.

*At-home: Following step 3, braid your own hair and tie off with an elastic at the bottom of your natural length. Continue on with steps 7, 8 and 9.
