NYFW: Ted Gibson For Carmen Marc Valvo S/S 2017

Maggie Mulhern | September 16, 2016 | 7:30 AM

“The idea behind Carmen’s collection is innocence, and for me innocence is textured hair," says Ted Gibson who created the hair look for the Carmen Marc Valvo S/S2017 collection. "I knew I didn’t want the hair to be curly, but rather almost frizzy. When Carmen said his inspiration was baby doll I immediately thought of the movie ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane’ with Bette Davis. In the movie her hair was very textured and I wanted the same idea for this look.”


  1. Prep hair with Kerastase’s Spray a Porter and blow dry straight.
  2. Create a deep side part. Then create a figure 8 set by taking 2 inch sections and wrapping the hair on a bobby pin creating a figure 8. Twist at the bottom to secure.
  3. Heat set by placing a flat iron over each section and holding for 2 minutes. Once cooled, separate curls with fingers to create texture.
  4. Use L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art’s Or Graphic Modelling gel to define top.
  5. Accessorize with Bow
  6. Finish with L’Oreal Professionnel’s Elnett holding spray.
