RAFW 2011 Get the Look: Alice McCall with Jon Pulitano for Cloud Nine

5 May

Hautees, you could only take my word for it about how amazing the new Cloud Nine Wand, but the proof is in the pudding pictures with Jon Pulitano for Cloud Nine styling the hair for the Alice McCall show last night using the Wand. The look is relaxed boho with a soft girly touch.

STYLIST: Jon Pulitano for Cloud Nine

SHOW: Alice McCall

VENUE: The OPT, Overseas Passengers Terminal

DAY AND TIME: Wednesday, May 4th, 7.30pm

ABOUT THE COLLECTION: Decadent, feminine designs, inspired by a Parisian high tea.

DESIGN INSPIRATION: This collection refines the relaxed bohemian quality that is so much a part of the Alice McCall signature, evoking a romantic, decadent world of modern elegance inspired by the old-world sophistication of a Victorian Tea Dance.  The Dansant invites us to a Parisian high tea that spills out into a garden scented with soft music and antique blooms.

Set against floaty sun ray prints, sheer sculpted silhouettes are bordered by delicate flocking and contrasting white collars.1940s tailored scalloping adds an elegantly eccentric touch.

DESIGNER QUOTE: “The hair and make-up work together with the garments to create the final look. For the show Jon is creating a relaxed loose plait with a textured wave at the front. The feel is very natural and he is using product to give a textured modern silhouette.”

THE HAIR LOOK, quote by Jon Pulitano: “The look for Alice McCall is all about relaxed boho with a soft, polished finish. I used the Cloud Nine Wand through the front to create beautiful, soft waves that were brushed out for a polished and sculptural effect. The hair also featured a 70’s style long, loose plait for a bohemian edge.”

HOW TO RECREATE:

  • Section hair into a deep side part
  • Prep hair by misting it with a volumising spray, and blow-drying smooth using a round brush, creating a soft texture with body
  • Leaving out the front section of hair from the top of the head to the top of the ears, take remaining hair and create a long, loose, plait.
  • Working with the front section of hair, take large, vertical sections and using the Cloud Nine Wand on 150 degrees, create beautiful, soft movement. Wrap the hair from the larger base to the middle of the wand for a more relaxed and polished feel.
  • Once all hair is curled, use a bristle brush to shape and mould waves for a beautiful, polished finish.
  • Finish by misting style with a light hold hairspray.
