Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Ode to the French Girl at Luca Luca
Seeing tons of models backstage at Luca Luca walking around with crimped hair, my heart started racing and not in a good way. Nothing good can come from crimped hair, nothing. But after I finished my deep breathing exercises and talked to celebrity stylist Teddy Charles, he assured me that if done right, crimped hair can give off a pretty, girly look.
Teddy's team did a middle part with a tight crimp and curled the hair with the Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Professional Styling Wand. The tighter crimp made the look much softer, rather than teased (i.e. Jessie Spano of Saved By the Bell). By curling the hair afterward it added wave and movement.
Next, Teddy twisted the two sides from the middle part so that it created two twisted ponytails. To finish it off, he crossed the ponytails through one another and pinned both with bobby pins for a French-inspired, girly chic look (having a dreamy French accent like Charles does to describe the look didn't hurt either!).
When creating this look, take the tidbit away from Ports 1961 and keep the flyaways, Charles says it adds texture and bounce to your 'do.
