"One of the goals for the runway was to give the models a creature-like feel. The hair styles are pretty, edgy, structured and futuristic. But I also tried to add a hint of softness," says T. Cooper.

T. Cooper, co-founder of Metro Look in New York City shares a how-to on the edgy finger wave-inspired hair looks seen at the Chromat Fall 2014 Collection during MADE Fashion Week. Inspired by Becca McCharen's architectural lingerie, swimwear and clothing designs, titled Bionic Bodies, Cooper created futuristic, yet distinctly feminine hair creations to pair with the structural shapes featured in McCharen's collection.

TRY IT: For clients with curly or wavy hair, start by blow drying the hair straight with Rusk Heat Freak blow dryer. Before curling, spray hair with a thermal protectant and brush to distribute. With a 3-inch or 1-inch curling iron, curl the entire head toward the face. Using a pin curl-inspired technique roll the curl and pin against the head to set. (Check out our how-to on pin curls here!) Using a tail comb, create a wave and hold in place with large duckbill clips. Place one clip above the wave and one clip below the wave. Spray with a freezing hairspray and set for 20 to 30 minutes and release.

STYLIST TIP: As an alternative for shaping waves with your fingers, use two tail combs for more stability while styling says T. Cooper.
