More in New York Fashion Week looks that are setting my beauty world ablaze: Orlando Pita for BioSilk created a “sleek, sculptural up-style I call the sumo-knot.” I call it a scalpture, and it’s beautiful. Says Orlando, “There is a Japanese influence in Carolina’s collection this season with big floral prints reminiscent of a formal geisha gown and very precise, structured shapes with strong silhouettes.” If you’re brave, here’s how to attempt to recreate this style.
- Apply a generous amount of BioSilk Firm Hold Finishing Spray to a brush and use it to sculpt the hair into a sleek ponytail that is secured with a band about 2 inches below the crown area.
- Spray a generous amount of BioSilk Firm Hold Finishing Spray onto the length of the ponytail and work the product into the hair with the CHI TOUCH Touchscreen Dryer.
- Run CHI G2 iron through the length of the ponytail.
- Gently fold the ponytail in half to form an off-center looped bun with the remaining hair forming a tail diagonal to the bun.
- Hold hair in place and position pins on underside of band.
- Prep an extension piece with BioSilk Firm Hold Finishing Spray and cut the ends at a diagonal before adding to the ponytail.
- Spray additional BioSilk Firm Hold onto the tail once extensions are in place and blow dry, using comb to blend.
- Wrap a small extension piece around the elastic band and finish the look with thin layer of BioSilk Shine On.
