To complement the menswear looks at this season’s Mik Cire by Eric Kim show, 40’s and 80’s hair styles were created using Solano tools. The Fashion Spot got the lowdown from Sean James, head hairstylist for Mik Cire by Eric Kim, on how the looks were created.

James remarked – “we went for lots of volume in the hairstyles – that’s why we’re using Solano. The SuperSolano 3700Moda Dryer feels like an extension of the hand, with an instant drying effect. The reason I wanted the SuperSolano 3700Moda Dryer is for its racecar-like power and look.”

According to program notes, when Eric Kim designed his Mik Cire collection, he wanted to achieve a 1940’s look with a 1980’s twist. “Think 90201 meets Gossip Girl meets Mad Men,” said James. Kim wanted every man to relate to his styles and be able to carry these looks through a contemporary age. James took men with short, long, curly, and thick hair and created full, combed over styles using the SuperSolano 3700Moda Dryer and Solano SleekHeat 450 Flat Iron.

James continued by noting that groomed styles are a wonderful complement to classic looks – “men no longer want a ‘wash ‘n go’ type look – they are influenced by pop culture, which portrays men with full volumized hair.”
