We Dare You to Try This Hot Pink Part
If only you could see the massive eye roll I do (on the down low) when I hear a stylist tell me that there isn’t much going on with the hair for a runway show. You know, like when it’s just a basic middle part with the hair tucked behind the ears and the ends are textured. Snooze. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for effortless cool-girl hair, but it's not much of a conversation starter without some detail to get excited about.
It seems as though Catwalk by TIGI US Creative Director Thomas Osborn read my mind when he created the look at Libertine’s Fall 2015 show. The “soft, no-fuss” look would have been my nightmare if it wasn’t for show-stopping pink middle parts. I repeat. Pink. Middle. Parts!
You’re probably thinking this is too wild to wear IRL. I disagree. I mean, if you have the balls to dye your entire head pink, blue, green, etc., you can totally pull this off. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t. And, according to Osborn, this special mixture of pink powder is easier to wash out than your Manic Panic.
To get the look, Osborn started by spritzing Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Salt Spray to enhance the natural texture of the models’ hair. He then created a middle park and used Bodifying Spray to add a bit of volume. Okay, this is where it gets good. Osborn mixed MAC’s Matte Neon Pigment in Magenta Madness with a little bit of talc and applied it down the part using a small, stiff makeup brush. The talc is what keeps the color in place and make it easy to wipe off. Genius! He finished it off with some Work It Hairspray.
MAC has so many pretty colors of pigments that the possibilities are endless. If you’re still wary, start with a less vibrant shade and work your way up to a neon. I, on the other hand, am going straight for the magenta.
