New York Fashion Week Beauty: Sebastian Professional for Mara Hoffman

Stylist Thomas Dunkin and the Sebastian hair team were on hand backstage styling the models’ crimped tresses with textured shine and a touch of the islands to complement Mara Hoffman's Spring 2013 "Aloha" inspired collection full of color and prints.

To get the look:

  • Start with damp hair and apply Thickefy Foam throughout.
  • Blow-dry the hair with a large round brush.
  • Starting from the under layer of the hair and working outwards, micro crimp small (2”) sections of the hair.
  • Backcomb and gently tease the hair to build more body and texture.
  • Lightly spritz hair with Shaper Fierce hairspray to create flexible hold.
  • Select random pieces around the head and use various sized curling irons to create different effects and textures throughout.
  • Create a deep part at the front of the head and side sweep the hair flat across the top of the head.
  • Use Shine Crafter wax to create a smooth, sleek look that holds the part in place.
