This season, inspired by the enchantment of the forest, Marchesa’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection juxtaposed pleated tulle and silk chiffon ruffles with sequins and delicate lace. Bringing the fairytale feel to life, the runway hair look was created by lead stylist and John Frieda Collection Creative Consultant Harry Josh who used John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo, Conditioner, and Detangling Spray prior to the show.
He then created a severe part where each of the model’s hair lay best and, using a curling iron slanted horizontally, he manually wrapped the hair around the iron to create the appearance of natural waves to avoid an overly styled look.
Josh recommends “brushing hair through to loosen curls, then slicking down the side and securing it with a bobby pin.” The bobby pin should be aimed at a 45 degree angle from the outer corner of the eye.
The styles Josh and his team created were simple and pulled together, if a little bit tousled, for looks that did a wonderful job at complementing the dreamy garments the Marchesa girls created.
