Runway Recap: Monique Lhuillier Fall/Winter 2014 at New York Fashion Week




New York Fashion week may be over, but now's the time to start trying out your favorite looks from all the shows. Our personal pick? Try the hair models wore for the Monique Lhuillier Fall/Winter 2014 Collection.

The L.A. Times revealed that the inspiration for the gorgeous fashions was "the dark side of romance, the juxtaposition of modern, architectural details and Old World couture techniques. New materials, including neoprene and vinyl, combined with traditional guipure lace and baroque-looking embroidery. Edgy skull and scorpion details." The models were walking femme fatales.

To complement Monique Lhuillier's graphic architectural, old world French Parisian couture and dark romantic influences, Master Stylist Bob Recine for Moroccanoil created soft, vertical rolled chignons that were sophisticated yet casual. His innovative take on the chignon created "a loose, gamine-like contrast to the elegant, well-done clothes" and each was designed "to follow the natural geometry of each model's jawline" for a hairdo of confidence. 

Prep: 

Style:

  • Before drying, spray Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray ($20) all over hair for added texture.
  • To free the hair, rough dry it from above in every direction (as if you were sitting in a convertible with wind coming from every side).
  • Then part hair down the center from crown to nape and pull back to create two ponytails.
  • Loosely twist and roll each one upward, tucking in the ends and securing each roll with a bobby pin.
  • Let loose strands and wisps fall
