MIZANI, the professional authority for all curl textures, was the official hair sponsor for the Victor dE Souza Spring 2015 Collection runway show. The event took place at The Ballroom, located at 4 West 43rd Street, on September 3, 2014 to kickoff New York Fashion Week.
Inspired by the 80’s, Victor dE Souza’s Spring 2015 Collection was full of bold prints, vibrant colors and flowing silk satin organza fabrics. For the models, dE Souza had a pale, monochromatic vision and thought it would be interesting to create a sense of oneness and unity with the beauty look.
MIZANI Celebrity Artist and Master Stylist at Dop Dop Salon Cesar Ramirez, who created hair for the show, brought the vision to life by developing an ethereal, yet voluminous look in a striking blonde hue. Coupled with MIZANI styling products, he came up with the idea to create triangle shapes, with an unconventional, coiled texture to produce a magnificent reverse “A-Line Bob,” which paired perfectly with dE Souza’s collection.
“I wanted to design a dimensional style in this icy, arctic shade for a dramatic look,” says Ramirez. “Using MIZANI products to create the bold, textured style was a perfect match, as the brand has always been a leader in the professional textured market. I loved having the opportunity to work with Victor because he brings drama and his pieces are incredibly theatrical, so it really inspires my creativity.”
How to get the look:
Start by applying a small amount of MIZANI Iron Curl Heat Styling and Curling Cream to the entire head of hair, create a center part and brush smooth to start the shape.
Take 3″ hair pins and wrap small strands of hair in a “figure 8” around the pin, holding the ends in place.
Once the hair is wrapped around pins, spray it with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist and heat with a flat iron for a few seconds; repeat the process until your entire head is covered with pins.
Next, remove the hair pins and brush it out to reveal a very teased and textured head of hair.
Cut the length very blunt into a triangle shape, frame the face and create a sharp line to reveal a cutting-edge A-Line Bob.
Lastly, spray the entire head with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist to set the shape, and voila!
