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.

Joseph DiMaggio for Davines at Naeem Khan A/W 2015



Show: Naeem Khan Autumn/Winter 2015
          
Lead Hair Stylist: Joseph DiMaggio, Master Session Ambassador for Davines North America

Inspiration: “I was so very honored to collaborate with Naeem Khan as he debuted his 10th anniversary collection at New York Fashion Week. He is a man I have been inspired by throughout my career, so the opportunity to work beside him for such a momentous occasion was thrilling. Naeem designs for the modern woman living in a world of timeless, classic beauty, and he challenged me to live alongside them. Sculpting a time honored French twist, I freshened it up by creating a strong twisted shape from the hairline to the nape of the neck, adding texture and strengthening the line of the up-do. The end result was a beauty look that not only reflects the luxe, detail of the collection, but also the vibrancy of the past decade. - Lead Stylist, Joseph DiMaggio

Hair Step-by-Step:

1. Blow dry hair using a paddle brush.

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

3. Temporarily tie the back section of the hair as you begin to manipulate the front section. Apply a generous amount of Davines More Inside This is a Volume Boosting Mousse to the hairline and root of the front section.

4. Using a wide toothcomb, dry the roots upward, focusing on molding the hair to the right side of the parietal ridge to create volume.

5. Proceed by backcombing the hair at the roots, using vertical diagonal sections.

6. Brush the hair across the head (towards the right) and secure in a vertical line using bobby pins.

7. Release the back section of the hair that was tied.

8.  Taking the top section of the hair, begin to roll/twist the hair back towards the center of the face (to the left). Continue the roll and twist motion, moving backwards on the head, and securing with U-pins. The hair will gradually become larger at the back of the crown, creating a more geometric looking twist.

**Pro Tip: Be sure the first bobby pin at the top of the head points towards the back of the head, and the last bobby pin at the bottom of the hair points towards the top of the head.

9. Using a tail comb, pick the hair to mold into desired shape, adding volume and strength.

10. Pull flyaways along the temples and nape for a more natural lived in look.

11. Secure the look by using More Inside This is a Medium Hold Hair Spray.

  • Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hold Hairspray ($28)

NARS Backstage Beauty Report Naeem Khan and Rodarte AW15


SHOW: Naeem Khan Autumn/Winter 2015

LEAD ARTIST: James Boehmer for NARS Cosmetics

LOOK:Naeem is celebrating his 10th anniversary this season. He wanted the makeup to be dark, sensual and incredibly glamorous. I thought about the artwork of Tamara de Lempicka. The women depicted in her paintings still seem so modern, and I borrowed colors from her signature palette. The eye is architectural yet soft- a smoky eye without any hard edges or strong definition- and without mascara or brows. The lip is a deep matte chocolate red that is classic Naeem. Skin is glossed and shiny on the cheekbones to add dimension without color or depth."
