Berlin's best HAIR
The best beauty looks of FW2017/18 during Berlin’s Fashion Week.Besides the fashion forecast designers give us during Berlin's fashion week, we also get a preview what is coming up next in beauty. That’s why we went backstage with Wella and Sebastian Professional and looked over the shoulders of their creative teams, which styled most of the show looks.
FEMININE STRENGTH at MARINA HÖRMANSEDER
The typical orthopedics and leather structures, which are the trademark of the Austrian design talent, was fluently affected by a very diva-like atmosphere. Iridescent chiffon and trumpet sleeves burst the well-known looks, which gave the new collection a certain way of feminine strength. Therefore it became also the main influence for the hair: a fine patterned braid-structure. Defiantly a statement look, but nothing which can be made yourself, that’s why also Wella Professionals needed some helping hands to realize this almost unmakeable project in such a short time.
VARIETY OF CLARITY at ODEEH
The designer-duo of Odeeh exceeded once more all expectations and came up with a show that was fresh, clear, and a stickler for details at the same moment. Monochrome colours and placative patterns were placed on the clean designs, which still emitted this special kind of romance also lovers of minimalism would go for. The hair was compared to this simple styled. Described as „hyper natural hair“ the look came out super sleek, almost over sophisticated, but still moving in his natural structure. So the main tool was a flat iron to straighten it perfectly, so the hair fell down very sleek, but preserved it’s lightness in it’s ends.
CHIC CONFIDENT at MALAIKA RAISS
For her 13th collection the German designer chose powerful clean cuts. The natural range of main colors from nude to white and black, she spiced it up with some hot reds, a flashing pink and curry yellow tones. The hair look by Wella Professionals reflected this style mood perfectly: It was a very sleek ponytail placed at the back of the neck, but with two very interesting details. First the styling team twisted middle parts of the hair in the back with a „double-twist“ and then this twisted part and the surrounded hair were put together in a double-pony tail the hair in the middle of the back of the head – a double-twist at the back of the neck.
The trend tools for this look by Wella Professionals:
The volume boosting blow-dry spray: EIMI Perfect Setting spray for € 17,40.
The hair activated gel for structure and form: EIMI Shape Me for € 21,40.
CHINATOWN’S AVANTGARDE at WILLIAM FAN
Contrasts of east and west: This was not just the show itself, also the location’s set design invited William Fan’s guest to a short trip to China. The fashion was also mainly influenced by traditional asian clothes transmitted in a new modern and also surprising creative way. The hair look, which Marc Kluckert – head of creation at Sebastian Professional, added also gave the impression of something „in between“. On the top of the head the hair was rough, twirly and dissected in a horseshoe form. But in the back of the neck this voluminous part got together super sleek in a low placed ponytail.
