Crimped Hair/Colored Streaks at Cynthia Rowley, by Wella

I've already spilled on the beautiful fall Cynthia Rowley collection shown at NY Fashion Week this month, but this just in! The exclusive deets on the hair. Girlies, it made me want to get out my old pink crimper. Major! The look was by Wella, and they provided me with the step-by-step info on how to look Cynthia Rowley-chic on your own. I loooove the color, but am afraid it wouldn't quite translate to my red hair (already vibrant enough, no?). So, if you're daring this fall, please try this, and I will live vicariously through you!

The Look: A sleek, natural ponytail accented with the striking contrast of an artificial colored hair extension placed off center for an added tuft of textured fringe.

The Hair Color: Wella Professionals Koleston Perfect Special Mix shades were used to completely saturate the natural hair extensions with rich, vibrant, jewel-toned shades of the collection. The sophisticated nuances of the Special Mix collection allow for creativity without limits – turning any color fantasy into a reality on the runway or in real life. The multi-dimensional tones and layers reveal sensuous colors in a range of shades, while embedded with an element of surprise.

The Products:
  • System Professional Ultimation: Strong-hold hairspray with long-lasting hold and maximum shine

Step-by-Step Styling
  1. 1. Section hair off and working from back of the head to the front, prepare hair with System Professional Ultimation hair spray for added texture and shine.
  2. 2. Create texture within each section by using a combination of a curling iron and crimping iron for non-uniform waviness.
  3. 3. Place Wella colored hair pieces that have been crimped within sections of the natural hair so that the extensions blend in seamlessly.
  4. 4. Pull the hair back into a soft ponytail at the nape of the neck with the ends flowing naturally, while allowing the streaks of color to show through for added dimension.
