Theory

Hair by Paul Hanlon

Theory’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is its first since parting ways with former creative director Olivier Theyskens, who was at the helm for nearly four years. “In the past, a lot of people have seen Theory as super minimal and architectural, and they wanted to do something different,” said lead hairstylist Paul Hanlon. Hanlon created an undone ponytail with volume and face-framing wisps that felt fresh, young and sexy—and perfect for spring. “The look is sophisticated and beautiful, not sterile. Sometimes when the hair is too graphic, the girls end up looking a bit alienating—as if they’re part of a tribe. With this look, they each get to be individual characters,” said Hanlon.


Get the Look:
1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist. Spray the product into dry hair to enhance natural texture and waves, but avoid oversaturating the hair with product.
2. Lightly apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-shafts to ends by brushing the product over the hair rather than going in section-by-section.
3. Use a curling iron to define the wisps in the front.
4. Pull the hair back and tie an elastic band at the base of the neck, then slide it three inches down.
5. Gently pull a few pieces out to frame the face and finish with a mist of Superfine Hair Spray. The look should be undone, yet still contained.
