NYFW Runway Report- The Best In Hair

New York Fashion Week is what hair and make-up dreams are made of and with a backstage pass to some of the hottest shows, not only did I get to experience the beautiful finished looks, but I also got a glimpse into how the looks were created. Backstage at NYFW you get a true sense of the celebrity, excitement and chaos involved in this international fashion spectacle.

Orlando Pita global stylist for Tresemme was responsible for creating the hair looks at some of my favourite shows- DVF, BCBG Max Azria, and Herve Leger. At each show I got an insight into how Orlando worked with each designer to come up with the inspiration for each look.


Orlando worked with DVF to create a style inspired by an old image of Diane from the 70’s. The show had a superstar cast of models including Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dun.

At BCBG Orlando created a Californian- esque beach wave by applying a generous amount of  Tresemme Perfectly Undone Wave Creating Foam and tying the hair into 6-8 small buns around the head. He then applied heat to the hair, and removed the buns after 30 minutes. This left a beautiful soft texture.

At Herve Leger Orlando created a braid with lots of soft wispy strands loose around the face. He used Tresemme Perfectly Undone Sea Salt Spray to give texture to the braid and wispies pieces. This is a look I definitely want to recreate at home!
