Last week KOOKAI showcased their latest collection, “East Meets West” in Sydney. One one side of the scale you have classic pieces and on the other, bohemian inspired designs.
L’ORÉAL PROFESSIONNEL Hair Director Jordan Hone (SLOANS, NSW) created the hairstyles and said,
“East is more colourful, adventurous, bold with beautiful texture. The collection uses Kookai’s ever evolving accessory range to enhance the bohemian influence. West is a true representation of European styling with clean, classic silhouettes; touches of embroidery; fit and flare outfitting and longer length dresses. The models have one of two looks. The first is a soft wave with a low parting on the left side. While the second is similar but, with two corn row braids on the left, parallel to the parting.”
Want to replicate this look at home?
Here’s how to get the hairstyle:
- To begin, dampen the hair by spraying L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Wild Stylers Beach Waves lightly from roots to ends. Then, distribute evenly a golf ball size amount of L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Full Volume Extra mousse to the roots, mid lengths and ends.
- Using a medium round brush, blow dry the hair to create volume and movement.
- CREATE THE BRAID: Part the hair to the side. Create 2 braids parallel to the parting. Continue braiding until the mid lengths and ends can be hidden under the crown. Secure with a hair elastic and two bobby pins.
- Next use a medium or large iron to curl the mid lengths and ends. Pin the curls to scalp and underneath to avoid pin marks and to prevent the curls from dropping too much. Remove pins when cool.
- Use a soft bristle brush to relax and shape the curls. Finish with spraying L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium Extra Strong Hairspray for hold and L’Oréal Professionnel Crystal Gloss for shine.
