At the Zang Toi Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show, hairstylist Eiji Yamane of Eiji Salon worked with René Furterer products to create two amazing hair looks on the models. This was a special show, it was the 25th Anniversary of Zang Toi, and they created a limited edition René Furterer by Zang Toi: 25th Anniversary Special Edition Box. The box contained René Furterer’s Vegetal Sculpting Gel, Styling Wax, Modeling Paste and Glossing Spray. All of these products were used backstage to create the hair looks. The box is available while supplies last on ZangToi.com as well as René Furterer salons.
What I loved about these hair looks was that not only were they beautiful, but each model make a quick hair transition during the show! This is great for going out after work, I love when 1 look can be quickly and easily transformed into another look.
Look One: Beachy But Polished Waves
To Get the Look:
1. The style was started on dry hair. Hair was parted in the middle and lightly sprayed with water. If hair was tangled, Fioravanti No Rinse Detangling Spray was misted throughout the hair and combed through.
2. Hair was then sectioned off and starting at the bottom layer a little Sculpting Gel was evenly distributed to the hair. The hair was then dried straight to prepare for the waves.
3. Once the hair was smooth, a 1.5″ curling iron was used to create curls. Use random pieces of hair and curl in opposite directions to add variety to the curls. Note that the curls are a little loose and they start at about the level of the ears and go down to the very end of the hair. For the show, models had extensions added as well.
4. A few sprays of Glossing Spray were used to add shine and then hair was sprayed with Vegetal Finishing Spray for hold.
Look Two: Low, Sophisticated Chignon
What You’ll Need:
To Get the Look:
1. The look was created very quickly backstage in the middle of the show. First, hair was smoothed with a small amount of Styling Wax.
2. The hair was then pulled back to the nape of the neck and twisted into a very low chignon (which literally just means a bun at the nape of the neck) and pins were used to secure it in place. The hair was pulled out slightly to make it frame the face and look a bit more casual.
