NYFW Spring 2013: The Hair from NONOO

This morning, Misha Nonoo presented her Spring 2013 collection at MILK Studios. To coincide with the collection, key hairstylist Marcos Diaz of ION Studio for Davines designed a Frida Kahlo-esque look that was soft, pretty, and feminine.  To achieve this, Diaz incorporated bright colored and floral-patterned pieces of fabric by weaving it into the hair.

  • Diaz began by spraying the hair with Davines For Wizards No. 14 Sea Salt Primer. This gave it a great textured, gritty look and made the hair easy to work with.
  • He then parted the hair in three vertical sections; two small sections at either side of the head and one larger section in the back.
  • Next, the hair on each side was worked into a traditional braid, while a piece of fabric was weaved throughout.
  • Diaz used the extra fabric left at the end of the braid to tie the two pieces together at the top of the head positioned to resemble a crown.
  • Finally, he gathered the remaining hair at the back of the head and created a loose bun secured with pins.
