Sure, this hairstyle looks kind of complicated with all the intricately knotted hair from the nape going all the way up but it’s quite easy to copy. Apply some salt spray all over the hair to give it some texture and medium hold. Make four to 5 ponytails starting from the nape going to the crown area. Section the hair into two beginning on the lowest ponytail and proceed into tieying them into a ribbon. Secure the ends at the base of the same ponytail with a pin that is similar to your hair color. Do this with the rest of the remaining ponytails and you’re ready to go.

The models have their serious faces on which were framed in their blunt cut hair held by 1960′s inspired hair bands. The hair colours are a touch whimsical yet forceful. The collection was all about balancing tones and so the wigs were dyed individually to accompany the creams, beiges, pinks and brown shades of the clothing pieces. The hair colours are muted but not to the point of looking too flat because they have got some hint of iridescence under flashing lights. Overall, these hair colours are crazy beautiful. The models’ brow were also bleached regardless of the wig colour they’re wearing which added more translucency and pearlescent finish on their gorgeous tresses.
