Marchesa Fall-Winter 2011 Fashion Week Presentation. Frederic Fekkai lead stylist, Renato Campora created an incredible chignon for Marchesa – drawing inspiration from the Famenco Dancer.
Inspiration: Campora was inspired by the volume, textures, and silhouettes of the Marchesa collection. Drawing from the style of Flamenco Dancer’s chignon, the look was a modern take on a classic style: controlled and sleek in the front, and wildly voluminous. The result was a beautiful and artistically modern hairstyle with the appearance of being windblown.
How to get the look:
Start by saturating the crown of the head with Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel for added texture and grip. Blow dry hair with hands to enhance the natural texture. Part the hair in the center with a fine tooth comb and brush out hair with the Fekkai Classic Brush. Then, brush hair back into a low, tight ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with a hair tie. Tease the pony with the Fekkai Classic Brush to achieve a slightly tousled look heavy with texture. Secure the end of ponytail with an elastic and gather hair against the back of the head to create an oversized, disheveled, chignon with movement. Spray Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for a light and airy shape with flexible texture and hold.
