NYFW How-To: Kenra Clipped Bun for SUNO F/W15

Lauren Quick | February 16, 2015 | 11:56 AM

For inspiration, SUNO designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty looked to Bertha Mason, the crazed first wife of Edward Rochester in Jayne Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. Seams pull apart, structured silhouettes give way and unlikely prints are paired together for a collection that looks just slightly off.

Odile Gilbert for Kenra created what starts as a sleek ballerina bun, then--like the collection--gives way to a looser, unexpected silhouette with an eye-catching clip detail.


STEP 1: Brush hair and apply Kenra Dry Shampoo; if hair is finer or has more oil, use Kenra Platinum Texture Powder 4. 

STEP 2: Spray Kenra Platinum Style Prep all over hair to provide an even canvas for styling (product launches May 2015). 

STEP 3: Spray Kenra Hot Spray 20 on hair section by section and flatiron. For curly hair, apply Kenra Platinum Blow Dry Spray to hair and blow out with a dryer before flatironing. 

STEP 4: Slick hair from the front to the back with a comb and Kenra Volume Mousse 12. Continually comb hair back, then apply Kenra Platinum Texturizing Taffy.

STEP 5: Throughout styling process, use Kenra Platinum Working Spray 14 to maintain hold and keep hair in place. Once hair is pulled back, blowdry to set.

STEP 6: Gather hair into a low ponytail, then loop upward and clip with a barrette. Allow movement in the ends. 

STEP 7: Finish with Kenra Volume Spray 25 all over; focus heavier application at the top of the head for maximum hold.
