Armani Privé Spring 2011

The look for Armani Privé was about controlling the hair…mirroring the shape of the head. Because the models wore sleek Philip Treacy hats, we wanted to keep the hair as tight as possible.

Before I went to Paris, I knew the show was going to be super-modern and slick, so I had prepared several different ideas for Mr. Armani…just a few options to keep the hair small and compact. (One option we didn’t end up choosing was extremely short hair.)

We worked together for a few days coming up with the right plan, and in the end, we went with a wrap style. We tried lots of different wraps, but he liked this concept the best. We didn’t want the girls to look costume-y…the simpler the wrap, the better.

How to get the look:
1. Make a center part to divide hair into two sections
2. Secure at the temple on both sides - almost like you’re gathering pigtails - and spray Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray throughout for smoothness
3. With this wrap, the sections will crisscross low in back to make a turban shape. Take the left section and wrap it around the back of the head, then sweep it up to the front right-hand side. Pin the hair in front, and anywhere you need to control the hair and keep it close to the scalp. As you go, use Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray for streamlining
4. Complete the same process with the right section
5. Spray well with Superfine Hair Spray for shine, polish and hold. Once the hair spray is dry, you can remove some of the pins for a more finished look
