Marc Jacobs Makes A Striking Case For Black Head Wraps
Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly wear your bejeweled sweatshirt on a bad hair day, Marc Jacobs saves your look with a simple black head wrap. The designer is known for using basic hair accessories on his runway (proof here), and his Resort 2016 show was no exception.
Jacobs’ go-to hair stylist, Redken’s Guido Palau, created the bold, downtown look inspired by the 80s. "The look for the Marc Jacobs resort show was inspired by a Martha Grahame off duty dancer with a nod to an eighties downtown girl who would use fabric to wrap and knot her hair,” he said. Models strutted down the runway at the designer’s Mercer Street store (and on the streets on NYC!) wearing embellished coats, sweatshirts and mini dresses complemented by a simple black head wrap and epic brows courtesy of Diane Kendall.
Before tying the wrap around models heads, Palau created “punky” chignons using Redken’s Move Ability 05 Lightweight Defining Cream-Paste and Forceful 23 Super-Strength Finishing Spray.
“I prepped the hair with Redken satinwear 02, and then blow-dried it back off the face,” said Palau. “I then applied Redken Move Ability 05 Cream-Paste throughout the hair to give definition and an almost wet look. Next, using just my hands, I pulled the hair into a rough ponytail at the crown and wrapped the head with the fabric. The pony tail was then twisted into a rough, punky knot, leaving the ends sticking out and finished with a mist of Redken Forceful 23 Super-Strength Finishing Spray."
To score a similar head wrap for pennies, try this Knotted Knit Headwrap from Forever21 or tie a wide, black scarf around your hairline and over your ears.
