Christian Siriano’s Fall 2014 collection is inspired by late Swedish fashion model, Lisa Fonssagrives, who the designer sees as the muse of Parisian beauty and glamour. The collection is “lady-like yet cool,” paying homage to the 60s yet maintaining a modern twist. At Siriano's recent show during New York Fashion Week, Sebastian International Artist Anthony Cole worked with his favorite Sebastian styling products to create a full, sleek chignon.Get the Look:
STEP 1: Start by spraying Dry Clean Only around hair line, and then all over.
STEP 2: Work Mousse Forte from root to tip of hair.
STEP 3: Create part directly down the center of head and slick each side over ear using Gel Forte.
STEP 4: Gather all hair at nape of neck and secure in low ponytail.
STEP 5: Finger-tease ponytail starting with underneath layer using Shaper Hairspray.
STEP 6: Pin ponytail underneath hair elastic creating an elegant, low bun.
STEP 7: Synch and secure the bun to ensure it remains in-tact using bobby pins and Shaper Hairspray.
Anthony Cole loves this look, calling it “cool yet glamorous” and suggests the following combination of stylers to achieve:
• Dry Clean Only – Dry shampoo that enables style and transformation on-demand
• Mousse Forte – Strong hold mousse that creates strong-lasting de-frizzed waves
• Gel Forte – Pearlescent formula sculpts hair for strong hold shape without a stiff or sticky feel
• Shaper – Brushable working hairspray to create direction, lift and control with a medium hold
