How-To: The Undone Grunge

close formula

Channeling the energetic collection, cataloging and exporting of China’s last dynasty—the Qing Dynasty—Vivienne Tam’s spring/summer 2015 collection emphasized dramatic texture and color. To subdue the vibrant pieces, CATWALK® by TIGI® Global Creative Director Nick Irwin felt the need to neutralize and unify the models. The result: a modern, sporty look with dual texture, perfectly complementary to Vivienne’s collection of nature-focused colors and prints.

HOW-TO STEPS

close formula
1

Prep hair with CATWALK® by TIGI® Fast Fixx Style Prep and create a center part.

2

Next, section the back of the head, starting at the nape, and apply CATWALK® by TIGI® Strong Hold Mousse from root through to mid-ends on each section.

3

Blow-dry using a flat brush, flattening the hair to the shape of the head, keeping the ends free and textured. Repeat, up to the crown.

4

Repeat the process at either side of the center part, making sure to keep the hair lying forward, not back.

5

Next, tuck haphazard strands behind the ears and then sweep two front strands of hair across the forehead and behind the ear, creating a piecey, side-swept look.

6

Set the look with CATWALK® by TIGI® Camera Ready.
