How-To: Pilgrim Wiglets & Foil-Set Hair

Hood By Air Fall/Winter 2016 hair by Amy Farid for Bumble and bumble.

Designer Direction/Hair Inspiration: Colonial pilgrim hair. Three looks were created for the show: pilgrim wiglets, foil-set textured hair, and graphic shapes with wig blocking tape.

“The show is about leaving and escaping the religious persecutions like the pilgrims did from England to come to this free land,” said lead stylist Amy Farid. “It’s about fleeing your home to find freedom. This show is really important to Shayne [Oliver] and me.”

Look 1 – Pilgrim wiglets

Styling Methods: Slick hair back with Thickening Hairspray and Does It All into a low ponytail and secure with elastic. Add a little Bb.Gel and smooth flyaways for added sleekness. Customized wiglets were cut and attached to hair with hairpins and adorn with a metal square buckle. Finish with White Hair Powder for added texture.

Products Used: Thickening Hairspray, Does It All, White Hair Powder

Look 2 – Foil-set textured hair

Styling Methods: Roll foil into sticks and fold into a u-shape. Wrap ends of foil with hair in a figure-8 technique and fold foil over. Heat with a flat iron and let cool. Brush out hair and spray with Does It All to create an airy, frizzy texture. Brush back the crown area and adorn with the metal square buckle at the back of the head, referencing the pilgrim inspiration. Some models had their crown wrapped in cellophane to reference the saran-wrapped bags in the collection.

Products Used: Does It All
