Mercedes-Benz Swim Week Spring/Summer 2014

Dolores Cortes

Dolores Cortes, 2014 Swim Week
Hair by Sonia Castleberry

The new collection from Barcelona-based swimwear line Dolores Cortes brought a mix of jungle love and rock 憂 roll to Miami at this year抯 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, with designs featuring bright tropical patterns and heavy metal accents. 揊or the hair, we were inspired by this year抯 Met Gala, said lead hairstylist Sonia Castleberry, who used a selection of Oribe products to achieve the braided, teased and embellished style. 揟he edgy, punk look is trending this season.

Get the Look:
1. After rough-drying the hair, create a side part from the center of the eyebrow straight down to the nape. Section off the side with the part.
2. Apply Rock Hard Gel to the sectioned portion and create a few small cornrow-style braids.
3. Spray Dry throughout the rest of the hair, concentrating on the roots, to create texture and volume. Back-comb the hair at the root for even more lift.
4. Finish with Superfine Strong for lasting hold.
5. If desired, embellish the look with jewelry, using the braids as an anchor to pin in chains.
