LEAD ARTIST: James Pesci for Viviscal THE LOOK: Whimsical Romance THE INSPIRATION: Inspired by the romantic and whimsical line from the first runway show by husband-wife duo, The Brock Collection, lead stylist James Pecis created a look pretty enough for a royal. Hair was blown to a full, voluminous dry, fluffy to the touch. Following the smooth blowout, curls were added to strands and finger brushed through. Once the base of the look was created, Pecis pulled inch thick strands from each ear and created a knot at the center of the head, following the hair downwards and weaving the strands into a braid, leaving about 3 inches from the bottom. Strands were secured with a tiny hair band. James then loosened the look by pulling small stands out to frame and flow around the face. The end result was ethereal, with a brocade barrette to match. GET THE LOOK - HAIR To prep for this whimsical, voluminous hairstyle, Pecis relies on hair supplements to help achieve and maintain luscious, thick locks. For years, James has trusted Viviscal and has turned his many clients on to the brand, because he says “it’s the only supplement that works!” He insists that taking Viviscal regularly is the best way to get model-worthy mane that is both beautiful and healthy. Trusted by stylists, models and physicians in the beauty industry, Viviscal Extra Strength offers thinning, dry and dull hair a much-needed oomph of volume, imparting a lustrous shine and softer touch.

LEAD ARTIST: Paul Hanlon INSPIRATION: “The collection is designed very elegantly with a focus on efficient tailoring. To offset the elegance the hair has a level of youthfulness. There is a naivety that is added with the undone ends to make it feel young and clean. The side wave is added in to make it feel a bit highbrow/low brow with a nod to old Hollywood glamour of the 40’s. There is a level of masculinity set against the casting of new faces with the younger girls. It feels raw, contemporary, easy, and organic.” - Paul Hanlon GET THE LOOK - HAIR
