Hair Turbans at Vera Wang Spring 2013

Deliberately messy hair has been making its way onto the runway quite a bit this season, so we're not exactly shocked that Vera Wang's hair team followed suit. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon, working alongside a team of Fekkai pros, created a dry fabric-like texture to build a turban-inspired updo. The look was intended to be a poetic spin on weathered hair. Forgive us for yet another bird reference this week, but it looks like a nest. And suprisingly, our feathers aren't a bit ruffled. The roughness of the look works!

Paul prepped hair with a heaping ball of Fekkai Strong Hold Volume Mousse, which he distributed throughout the hair. He dried hair, brushed it out and roughed up sections by teasing them with a comb from roots to ends. He sprayed each section with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray, flat ironed it and brushed it out again. To get the turban-like effect, Paul had models flip their hair upside-down. He divided hair into two section and criss-crossed them at the nap, wrapping them up to the front of the head. To help keep the hair in place, he pinned the sections as he wrapped them. He rearranged a few strands and set the look with more spray.

If you decide to try this look at home, just be on the look out for pigeons.
