1. Respecting History.
"This is a brand that hasn't done a lot of hair in the past. There's a respect for me thereI'm not going to go change the world," said TIGI hairstylist Paul Hanlon. "Our inspiration was a girl that's been to a rock concert. She's been dancing and head-banging all night, so she's sweaty. The look should be very easy, organic, and effortless."
2. Get Dirty.
"It's a morning show, so the girls are coming in with clean hairnot the look we're doing," explained Hanlon. To fake dirty strands, he prepped the hair with Tigi Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray and used almost an entire tube of texturizing cream per model. After, he pulled hair into a tight pony using his fingers instead of a brush. "She's not your girl-next-door. She's dangerous."
3. Knotty but Nice.
To get the final look, Hanlon separated the ponytail into two sections and tied each into a knot. A heavy dose of TIGI shine spray gave hair the faux-sweaty look, mimicking how she'd appear emerging from, say, a Metallica concert.
4. The Style Translated.
Real girls should skip all the styling products when trying at-home. "In the real world, greasy hair means dirty," said Hanlon, who recommended using mousse to give the hair texture and a pea-sized amount of serum for shine.
5. Airbrush It.
"If you really think about makeup, all you're doing is blending. Airbrush is a lot quicker!" Cory Bishop explained about the show's Temptu-applied makeup. The look, designed by Lisa Butler, was "sporty chic" and barely noticeable (in a good way!). The eyebrows were the strongest feature, with each model getting a blonde touch-up, no matter the shade of her natural brows. "It's making the eyebrow more of an accessorymake them the color you want them to be."
