Did you catch the Erdem‘s show at London Fashion Week? Heading up the hair styling was Larry King representing Dyson. Celebrating their 15th anniversary, this show was all about Erdem’s most iconic looks. With an Edwardian wardrobe, Larry presented the hair keeping the period feel but adding a modern twist – showing us that we can look back in time but still be present.
Larry King’s SS22 Look
- After prepping the hair with mousse, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer with Styling Concentrator attachment and a round brush is used to smooth the hair and stretch out any natural texture. Run the Dyson Corrale straightener through the hair for a smooth high shine base, adjusting the settings on both tools to suit the model’s hair type and preserve hair health.
- The hair is then parted in the centre and the hair drawn down either side of the face, over the cheekbones and ears, securing in place with an elastic at the nape of the neck.
- Next, braid the ponytail in a traditional three strand plait, incorporating hair extensions working down the plait to add the high drama length of the finished look. More mousse is introduced here for added hold.
- Continue braiding past the model’s bottom, before tying off with an elastic to secure the plait in place. This elastic is then covered with a looped black grosgrain scrunched ribbon bow.
- The new Dyson Flyaway Attachment – which harnesses the Coanda effect to hide flyaways without extreme heat – is used to smooth any flyaways around the crown of the head.
- A final pass with the Dyson CorraleTM straightener over the plaited pony smooths any flyaways for a sleek, high shine, uniform finish. A strong hold hair spray and finishing crème hold the final look in place.
