Christopher Kane’s Hair Accessory Hack is To Die For
The humble industrial cable tie—normally used for tidying up wires—has gone viral in the fashion industry. At Christopher Kane’s Spring 2016 show, these ties were used in two different ways to make hairstyles created by Gudio Palau: securing the hair into ponytails and as collars to hold hair onto the neck.
However, the New York and London runways saw not two, but three different looks involving 12 models who were given bangs. This was a micro fringe inspired by a reference image Kane had sent to Palau the night before. In an interview, Palau said, “Not all girls can pull off the bangs, so I am going girl by girl and deciding which look to give her.”
Along with adjusting the sparkling accessories, Palau gave the finishing touches with generous sprays of Redken Shine Flash 02, which he used in every model’s hair to create the final look. “You’ll have to excuse me,” Palau said hastily, “I think I have done the cable ties up too tight—I need to get them off!”
