“Three years ago, everyone had flatironed hair. Today, lots of girls are playing with textures and length. It’s no longer about trend but more about difference.
“My Margot will add to the environment and energy of the club. She’ll look fearless, like she belongs,” he says.
What about Margot’s grown-out highlights? Leave them, Brian says.
“Her color doesn’t make her; she makes her hair color,” he maintains. “We just did a photo shoot for Vogue where we actually used a dark spray to put ‘roots’ into blonde hair.”
For the shape, Brian decides to go against the grain of long hair with a faux bob. “This look will have edge, be undone and chic.”
To create a solid base, he asks that Margot come in with unwashed hair, better to hold the curl he’ll create. He preps by spraying each section with a volumizing formula, then blow dries over a round brush and “sets” in invisible rollers. Once the sections are cooled, he re-rolls half-inch partings down a one-inch curling iron. He backbrushes the sections to “shrink” to desired length, and pushes and pins in loose ends for the “bob.”
For Margot’s New York club look, Brian Buenaventura backbrushes an iron set.
Pinning ends under the surface makes a deliberately messy faux bob.
