I was recently invited to a wonderful New York Fashion Week event with Pantene celebrity hairstylist Danilo, who was speaking about his latest fashion week collaboration.
He created these very sleek, modern hairstyles for the hot new designing duo Cushnie et Ochs Fall/Winter 2011 runway show (he also makes celeb clients like Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani look amazing too!).
Danilo took inspiration for the designer's recent road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, in which they referenced a "sexy" vagabond with Native American influences.
As soon as Danilo took a look at the collection, he says he knew that it called for a "clean modernized version that still gave an authentic feeling from the Native American reference".
He styled the sculpted, sleek bun with Pantene's Pro-V Beautiful Lengths leave in conditioner and "hooked elastics" to pull the hair together neatly in the back. Then he added the beautiful, simple long feather in the hair.
While you may not want to put an actual feather in your hair, this is a beautiful idea for a pulled back ponytail or updo with a feathery comb, several barrettes anchoring the bun in the back, or pins with feather accents on the side of the hair. I'm definitely inspired! - RLB
