We had to take a Hair Nerd’s #SaturdaySelfie by the Eye Beam entrance before going backstage with  Christian Siriano .    After spending the previous day with the Sebastian Professional team at the Wella World Studio for the hair test, we knew we had to be there for all the action!

We walked into  a full force hair frenzy. The entire team working to execute Christian Siriano’s incredible vision.

We talked to Anthony Cole about the inspiration behind the hair look.  He explained that Christian had traveled to Mexico where the women were loosely pulling back their hair in a functional messy pony tail.

Inspired by the idea of loose organic texture, Christian and Anthony collaborated to create a high fashion version that would lend itself to the runway.

Wefts of hair and Sebastian Volupt Volume Spray were used to execute the height and symmetry needed for each look.

Flat Irons were magic tool to give the ponies a beachy lived in wave.

We harassed Anthony Cole the day before at the Wella World Studio during the hair test and he broke down the look and how you can translate it into a salon ready look for your clients this season.
