NYFW Backstage Beauty: How To Get The Soft, Ethereal Waves Shown At Marchesa

The Marchesa Fall 2009 collection was inspired by the enchantment of the forest with ethereal styles in pleated tulle and silk chiffon with playful flourishes such as ruffles, sequins, and delicate lace. To enhance the fairy-tale feel, lead stylist and John Frieda Collection Creative Consultant Harry Josh drew upon the power of natural eucalyptus for style infused with vitality with a look that was polished, feminine, and just a tad bit undone with strong parts set against loose, natural waves.

Healthy hair was an essential part of making this look so breathtaking so before styling the hair Harry used John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo, Conditioner, and Detangling Spray ($6.49 each), all of which are formulated to nourish, strengthen, and condition for healthy, shiny locks.

To recreate the healthy hair seen on the runway, blow out hair and create a severe part where hair lies best. €œUsing a curling iron slanted horizontally, manually wrap hair around the iron to create the appearance of natural waves and avoid an overly styled look,€� Josh recommends. €œBrush hair through to loosen curls, then slick down the side and secure with a bobby pin.€� Aim the bobby pin at a 45 degree angle from the outer corner of the eye for chic hold and you're all set!
