Get The Runway Look: Sherri Hill Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week Collection


Designer Sherri Hill presented her Spring/Summer 2015 Collection with hair by lead artist Tammy Mixon for the CHI Miss Universe Style Illuminate product line.

Mixon created a "Spring Fling" look, consisting of a low ponytail that was textured, light and airy.   

"I designed this hairstyle to allow the dresses by Sherri Hill to stand out. Since it is her Spring/Summer Collection, I wanted a look that would be universal but fresh looking."

Get The Look

Begin the look at the top of the crown, creating a side diagonal part.

Starting at the top row, take 1" sections and spray with Style Illuminate Flexible Hair Spray ($16). With a 1 1/4" curling iron, curl the section on base leaving the ends free about 2".

Hold for a few seconds, then clip. After the hair has cooled, remove pins and brush. 

Next with your fingers, lift multiple sections throughout the head spraying each one with Illuminate Restage Dry Shampoo for texture.

"As you are spraying each section, shake it lightly to dry to create a light airy look," Tammy instructed. "Simply spray each section with the dry shampoo and move your fingers to the ends. Holding the hair straight up; shake the section lightly to replicate."

At the back of the head, part-off a triangle section from the crown to the nape. Back brush this section loosely and allow the hair to fall naturally.

Leaving this triangle section free, begin to gently back brush the top and sides for volume smoothing the surface with your fingers allowing any shorter sections to cascade around the face naturally.

With your fingers, begin to comb the hair back including the sides and create a low ponytail. "The key to this style is keeping the triangle section out of the ponytail. Leaving this free adds length and fullness to the pony," the stylist explained.

Secure hair with a rubber band. To hide the elastic tie, take a small section from underneath and wrap around to cover. Spray with Illuminate Rock Your Crown Firm Hair Spray ($16).

To finish, back brush the triangle section from underneath and also back brush the ponytail blending the two together for fullness. Arrange pieces and spray with hair spray.

"In addition to using a brushing motion to add more texture to the ponytail, use your fingers to piece and pull small sections," Mixon noted.
