Sophisticate’s Blog:         Upsweeps At Fashion Week

Bond. James Bond. No, no, no—Bond, as in the Bond collection from LaQuan Smith at New York’s Fashion Week! The super-hot designer has clothed fashion-forward stars like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Rihanna, so his Bond collection was highly anticipated.

Smith wanted a look reminiscent of Robin Given’s character in the movie Boomerang, and lead stylist Keith Neal, along with T. Cooper of Metro Look, obliged, working on behalf of Andis to create the futuristic hairstyles.

To create the “victory roll” for all of the models, Cooper first smoothed hair with the Andis Curved Edge Titanium Flat Iron and created bend and texture with Andis Titanium Curling Irons.

Sectioning out the top, the hair on the sides and nape were smoothed and pulled back in a ponytail. The ponytail ends were twisted up to the top of the head, rolled, pinned and sprayed.

To ensure a uniform look, some extensions were curled and added to the victory roll for fullness and volume.

“The Andis Titanium tools heated fast and worked great on all the hair,” says Cooper. “The different heat settings worked perfectly for the multi ethnicities of all the models.”
