Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Summer Hair Trends

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Summer Hair Trends

This year stepped backstage to some of the hottest shows during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week in Miami to get the skinny on the upcoming trends. And because we all know I have a severe obsession with hair products, I wanted to learn what was going to be the mane attraction for Summer 2015.

The look : Salty Beach Waves

My first stop was the 10th Anniversary  of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim w/ swimwear presentation where models graced the pool at The Raleigh Hotel with sexy summer hues. Caliente! For this event, Sandi Magder the owner of blo Blow Dry Bar Midtown Miami wanted to capture that essence with a natural loose wave that has been texturized by the salty beach air.

How to get the look: “The look was created by adding some texture to dry hair with UNITE’s Beach Day spray and new Texturiza spray and then curling the hair with a wand to create mermaid waves.  The hair was then brushed out to loosen the curl and bring it to a more natural look,” explained Sandi. After you texture the hair, pin the hair in place while you do your makeup. This will help seal the waves and give your look longevity. Jennifer from UNITE Hair Products also suggested using premium hair products to make sure your summer locks stay hydrated under the sun. Zak Mann Photography-13

The Look: Wet Defined Curls

At the L*Space by Monica Wise show, lead hairstylist Jonathon Powell perfected the sleek and sexy “wet look” for the ocean-inspired runway. I personally loved this look because I have naturally curly hair and I can’t control the beast inside my locks. I usually blow dry my look straight, but Jonathon inspired me to go natural with his new product line.


How to get the look:  Jonathan Product Hydracurls has a new curl retention technology that creates and defines curls to lock out humidity. For the show Jonathon curled the model’s hair around his fingers to create a tight, defined curl. He used the Hydracurls Styling Gel Cream which blends a styling gel and hydrating cream to seal the look and give it a light bounce.
