"Rockabilly Chic" at Catherine Malandrino

Catherine Malandrino is one of our favorite desingers. Not only were we swooning over the pieces in the SPR 09 collection at NYC Fashion Week last week, we also loved the hair looks that came down the runway.

Luckily, the Wella and Sebastian hair teams gave us the scoop on how they created these modern takes on 40' and 50's "rockabily" looks with volume on the top of the head in a chignon.

The hair was also augmented with customized Wella colored extensions in order to create beautiful chignons that match and complement the natural hair color.

Here's how they created the looks, step-by-step:

1) Make a tight ponytail high on the top of the head.
2) Twist the ponytail tightly into a coil.
3) Wrap coiled ponytail first towards the forehead and then to the back, securing with pins into a bun, sitting high on the head.
4) Take a Wella highlighted extension, coil, and secure on top of the twisted and already secured ponytail to add height and dimension to the bun.
