Catwalk by TIGI’s NYFW Trend Report: Mark Fast

By  September 14, 2011

Backstage at Milk Studios for Mark Fast’s SS/12 show in New York, Nick Irwin and the TIGI Creative team let us know what the inspiration was for the show…

‘Mark wanted the girl to look like androids, a clone of each other. We decided the hair should blend with the strong, bold colours of the collection. We used natural and coloured hair extensions on each girl to match their outfit. To get the look, I pulled the hair in a really high, sleek and clean ponytail on top of the crown and smoothed the hair down with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series True Wax. Then I set the hair with Catwalk by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray so it was perfectly neat.

Next, I wrapped real hair extensions, matching the models’ hair colouring, round the pony tail adding the brightly coloured synthetic extensions underneath. The bright colour just peeked through at the ends so it flowed with the collection. Each girl was to look identical, so we gave them all the exact same length hair with the same ponytail.’
