Veronica Beard New York Fashion Week Recap: Hair by Kien Hoang for Oribe Hair Care


Veronica Beard channeled late ’70s/early ’80s Miami for their Spring/Summer 2016 collection, with Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface serving as the muse. To complement the vibrant clothes in flattering, body-conscious cuts, lead hairstylist Kien Hoang for Oribe Hair Care created a sleek, wet-looking unstructured chignon with high shine. “The Veronicas wanted the girls to look like they’d just stepped out of the pool,” said Hoang of the look.

1.     Prep the hair with Run-Through Detangling Primer from roots to ends. 

2.     Combine a generous amount of Curl Gloss and Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse in hands and apply from roots to ends, section-by- section, until the hair is completely saturated. “The Curl Gloss helps give this look high shine,” said Hoang.

3.     Tie the hair into a ponytail with a hair bungee band and then wrap the tail into an unstructured chignon, leaving half an inch at the ends out.

4.     Finish with a generous misting of Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray or Shine Light Reflecting Spray for intense shine and to accentuate the wet look of the hair.
