New York Fashion Week: Sebastian Professional's Faux Bob at Costello Tagliapietra








I'm dying over Costello Tagliapietra's frocks that debuted yesterday at New York Fashion Week. Famed designers, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra presented Costello Tagliapietra Spring ’10 line last night at Milk Studios in Chelsea and (in a moment of genius) partnered with Sebastian Professional for a killer combination: the next direction in fashion and a shadow of beauty from the past.
DYING, though I'm not sure I could picture them with out these wistful, dreamy faux-bobs. Costello Tagliapietra’s Spring ’10 beauty look seamless combines elegance, youthfulness, natural beauty and romance. The hair, both feminine and fresh, is loosely inspired by the roll style of the ‘40s with soft curls that sit just above the shoulder.

The Hair Look:
Sebastian Professional lead stylist Thomas Dunkin recommends building texture and shape with techniques that keep the hair looking soft, romantic and not too “done.” Finish with an elastic touchable texturizer or flexible shine spray to create an elegant yet playful look.
DIY:

1) Apply Sebastian Professional Texturizer to damp hair; distribute evenly throughout.

2) Blow hair out straight with a medium to large-sized round brush.

3) Spray hair with a flexible hairspray for added texture, section hair, curl it with a medium-sized barrel curling iron and set.

4) Take out pins, gently brush out the curls and then roll hair under, section by section, fastening it under at the neck with bobby pins.

5) Apply Microweb Fiber to hands and gently work through the front of the hair to create an imperfect, lived-in effect. Finish by misting with a strong-hold hairspray.
