Dichotomy - Dylan Cooper
Textured locks are nothing new, but what keeps texture on trend is how it is treated and the contradictions that it can produce. There were plenty of contradictions at MBFWA – feminine, pretty dresses sporting elements of toughness in hardware or a masculine Mohawk; soft, delicate fabrics reproduced in sporty, street-wise silhouettes – and this dichotomy continued through the realm of hair. At Dylan Cooper, Goldwell hair director Justin Pace created an androgynous, masculine updo – the sides were removed to make longer hair look like a short cut and the top was built up into a quiff to resemble a female James Dean. Very cool!
1. Use Goldwell Stylesign Power Whip mousse and blowdry into the hair. This will thicken it up and give the hair support.
2. Using the top hair, take a ‘C’ section part right around the head from temple to temple and pin.
3. Divide the remaining back head of hair into two sections straight down the middle.
4. Using the back left side of hair, comb to back middle and twist up anti-clockwise. Pin hair to create a look similar to a French roll and spray with Goldwell Stylesign Big Finish for a secure hold.
5. Repeat using the back right side of hair, this time twisting up hair clockwise.
6. Proceed to the top hair and unpin. Starting from the crown, take horizontal sections and spray with Goldwell Stylesign Hot Form to protect the hair. Use curling tongs to roll and set each section of the hair and pin as you go.
7. Once top hair has been curled and set, let this cool and then brush out.
8. Take sections of the top hair, starting from the forehead and backcomb to create support.
9. To create height on the top of the head, use a hair pad roll and pin into place. Smooth over and adjust shape to suit the face.
10. Spray hair with Goldwell Stylesign Magic Finish for enriched radiance and Goldwell Stylesign Satin Guard to shield the hair and polish the look.
