Miami Swim Week 2016: San Lorenzo Runway Hair How-To

SHOW: San Lorenzo
HAIR: UNITE Hair with BLO Blow Dry Bar – Brickell
HAIR INSPIRATION: The San Lorenzo inspiration behind the collection was “MIND, BALI, SOUL” so the BLO Blow Dry- Brickell team lead by Chanel Peraza-Munoz created three different deconstructed looks enhanced with flowers for a relaxed, island feeling. Based on the models hair and what they would be wearing they were styled with either a wrapped fish-tail braid, a deconstructed top-knot or a loose, textured French braid.

STEPS-BY-STEP:

  1. Prep hair with UNITE TEXTURIZA throughout and EXPANDA Dust on roots for overall volume and texture.
  2. Create a lose section and start with a section on the nape of the opposite side on where the braid will end. Continue braiding until complete.
  3. Sprinkle UNITE EXPANDA Dust on the braid and then gently pull at braid to slightly loosen.
  4. Mist UNITE 7SECONDS Glossing for an overall shine and to protect against the humidity of Miami.
  5. Apply flowers into hair down the braid as needed.

DECONSTRUCTED TOP KNOT STEPS-BY-STEP:

  1. Mist TEXTURIZA throughout hair for volume and texture.
  2. Slightl back-comb through hair.
  3. Pull hair into a high pony and secure with elastic.
  4. Wrap hair into a look bun-like top knot and secure with bobby pins.
  5. Secure the hold with a mist of UNITE SESSION-MAX Hairspray
  6. Apply a final mist of 7SECONDS Glossing for an overall shine.
  7. Secure flowers using bobby pins along the side of the top-knot
