How to play with platinum just in time for spring.


5 Steps to Modern ‘70s Hair


Designer Michelle Helene is known for self-expression and sophistication with time-forgotten techniques and bespoke construction. Her Spring/Summer 2017 collection was no different and featured ‘70s-inspired hair looks created by runway Stylist Jorge Luis for L’anza Healing Haircare. The renowned stylist created brilliant hair looks with eye-catching blends of contrasting global textures, forms and lines. “The vibe was organic and absolutely ‘70s music, inspired by a modern twist,” said Luis.

To create fine-curled texture in front, Luis used his own technique: a combo of chopsticks and a flat iron. In the back, hair was smoothed, crisscrossed and braided. Braids were then deconstructed for a flowing, organic look.

mod-70sHow The Look Is Created:

1.  Brush top hair forward and front with a Mason Pearson brush to smooth, then spray with L’anza Healing Style Dry Texture Spray.

4.  Crisscross hair to opposite sides, then create braids. Pull on edges of braids so the finished look is unstructured.
