The Journal was given an exclusive preview of John Pulitano’s intended hair direction for the opening show, at the intimate REDKEN x DION LEE MBFWA 2017 Reveal Event.
“In a recent pre-Fashion Week collaboration with celebrated designer, DION LEE, REDKEN Global Artist – John Pulitano (Headcase Hair, NSW) – created an arresting Hair Look inspired by Lee’s highly anticipated Resort 2018 collection.

Get the Look:
On dry hair, using the arch of your eyebrow as a guide, create a deep, imperfect side part. Pulling the hair back to the crown, work REDKEN Rootful 06 Root Lifting Sprayinto the roots and milk through the mid-lengths and ends.
Finger dry to accentuate the natural texture.
Using a tong, curl random sections of the mid-lengths to create definition and movement.
Gently tousle to create an undone mood. Spray REDKEN Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray throughout the hair from roots to ends to promote grip, texture and lightweight hold.
Gather the lengths at the nape and leave out a small section at the back. Braid this small section and use it like a hair tie to secure the pony tail by tying it into a knot around the lengths.
To finish the look, tuck a section of hair behind the ear and pull some sections of hair out to effortlessly frame the face. Mist the entire look with REDKEN Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray.
