Backstage Fun & Decoding Hair Trends at Day 5 of Lakme Fashion Week, 2016

Day 5 of Lakme Fashion Week W/F’16 had some of my favorite intermediate designers and being backstage while the models rehearsed and designers skewed details on them was as usual, a stirring experience. Designs and experimentive impressions I blindly trust when it comes to lighter silhouttes for friends and cousins weddings are a pleasant treat to sit back and pick out from my seat but looking at them upclose, as one of the first ones to view months of hard work turn into elaborate attires is a whole other affair. An essential accessory to these outfits are the hairstyles that govern the mood of the entire collection, and it was super exciting to watch them being planned and executed from the first step to the last as TIGI Bedhead’s official blogger for the day.
The hair trend for the show I was covering – Anushree Reddy, Moh By Jade & SVA By Sonam & Paras Modi was a sleek low pony with an exaggerated, wavy side parting. Just perfect for the ‘I’m here to have a good time’ vibe the collections enacted.
The most exciting part was when the TIGI Bedhead team re-created and decoded the runway hair trend on my hair in under 10 minutes. I recorded the entire process through a time lapse which you could view on my Instagram here! Here’s the step-by-step DIY for you to bring this runway look home too:
Step 1: Prep the hair with TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day. Work in the product by blast drying
Step 2: Part your hair to a preferred side and leave a section from the front loose. Secure the rest of the hair into a ponytail with the help of a bob pin.
Step 3: Spray TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Hairspray on the front section and tong the hair towards the face to create S-Waves
Step 4: Spray TIGI Bed Head Headrush Hairspray on the tonged section for shine. Take a bristle brush and brush the front section. Pull it to the back taking the loose ends around the ponytail.
Step 5: Create an ā€˜Sā€™ like figure with the front remaining section and pull it back, dressing the ponytail.
Step 6: Finish the look by spraying TIGI Bed Head Headrush Hairspray
Psst..literally took the stylist 10 minutes to replicate this look on my hair.
Here are some of the photos from backstage and the show!
