QUICKIE: Rick-Rack Texture

close formula
Achieve zigzagged texture with a classic rick-rack technique, a backstage staple that creates a base for many editorial or avant-garde looks. Check out a close-up video of the technique, found backstage at the L’ANZA Healing Haircare B.I.G. Event in Cancun, Mexico.


L’ANZA Artistic Design Team Member Michael Dahl starts with L’ANZA Design F/X, a lightweight, flexible working spray with thermal protection. Working in fine sections, he rick-racks the hair around a hairpin, twisting the ends of the hairpin closed when he finishes each section. After a row of these, he’ll tap with his flat iron. Watch how it’s done, then check out the finished set (above) and final look (below) that went down the runway as part of L’ANZA Global Creative Director Matt Swinney’s presentation!
