“The hair for show has opposing textures and a playful relaxed movement at the back and also a strict part in the front. The different textures are positioned in a way so that when the girls are walking down the catwalk, you get this beautiful high shine visible at the front and dry matte texture through the waves at the back – uptown in the front and downtown in the back,” explains Ngata.

Brad gave us the lowdown on creating these waves at home.

  1. This look can be created by double moussing your hair with L’Oreal Professional Tecni.Art Volume Life. Apply the mousse to the roots and work through the ends. Repeat this process then dry the hair off. Using your eyebrow as a guide, create a side part and smooth the top lengths.
  2. Tuck the hair behind your ears and then use your curling tong to curl your hair in sections.
  3. To create top shine, use a heavy dose of L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni.Art Crystal Gloss. Then spray L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni.Art Fresh Dust dry shampoo to the curls and mid section, gently shaping the waves with a soft brush.
  4. To hold it all in place, spray with L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium hairspray.

To compliment this beautiful hairstyle, subtle makeup tones were used to create a pretty look. The models were primed with L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer along with the Lumi Magique Foundation and Highlighting Pen. To give the models a beautiful glow, L’Oreal Paris Glam Duo in 102 Brunette Harmony. For the eyes,  Infallible Eye Shadow in Hourglass Beige and Absolute Taupe were used, finished with False Lash Butterfly Wings Mascara in Black. To complete this runway look, Colour Riche Lipstick in 235 Nude was the shade of choice. The earthy tones used kept the finished look simple but sophisticated.
