Backstage Beauties: City-Slick Hair at DKNY

While the clothes had a downtown feel, the hair took on a more uptown-slick route: clean and polished with a side part and pony.

For DKNY's 25th anniversary, the runway was a sporty meets urban-wear mashup of slouchy denim, paisley bodysuits, and baseball caps. In a nod to the '90s, Karan printed black and white "DKNY" monogram text on shirts and pants, and stuck iron-on-patches onto jeans and overalls.

While the clothes had a downtown feel, the hair took on a more uptown-slick route: It was clean and polished with a side part and low side pony. According to Wella Professionals Global Creative Director, Eugenie Soulieman, "[The hair] needed something that was uniform to pull the look together because the looks are really diverse, so in a funny way, the hair didn't have anything to do with the collection. It was an idea that kind of works for everything really: It is just very well done hair, perfect, just very low side part, a low side pony tail, with a straight slick gorgeous texture. We aren't doing anything that hasn't been done before, but it really isn't about that it is about creating something very young, very fresh, and very polished that is styled and simple."

Recreate the Look: For a flat blow dry effect use Wella Professionals Perfect Setting Blow Dry Spray. For no fly aways, put Wella Stay Styled Finishing Spray on the bristles of a brush and then apply it to the hair. Rub Wella Oil Reflections between two palms to give the hair a shine.
