NZFW How to: Wynn Hamlyn AW18 by L’Oréal Professionnel


I spent the last four days of New Zealand Fashion Week working for FashionTV, interviewing international guests about what they loved and loathed about their time immersed in local style. Almost all of them named the Wynn Hamlyn AW18 show their pick for the best of the week, and the hair and makeup looks created to complement the collection were equally as beautiful and considered.
Michael Beel, L’Oréal Professionnel ambassador, created the hair look, which he says was inspired by “a dystopian type of world where the seasons are no longer defined by the typical autumn/winter, spring/summer”. It was a look that had an element of organic casualness to it, enhanced with the amazing wicker hats sitting on the head’s of some of the models. 
To create the look at home is surprisingly simple using some of L’Oréal Professionnel’s key products, and Beel says it can be broken down into the following steps:
1. Prep the hair by blow-drying in Tecni.Art Pli into the hair encouraging soft movement throughout. 
2. Place in an organic centre parting. Nothing too contrived. 
3. Using a medium sized curling tong and Infinium Hairspray define a soft beach wave throughout. Keep the ends straighter to keep a more modern aesthetic. 
4. Work around the head winding hair around the tong away from the face. 
5. Shake out the curls using a wide tooth comb and use Tecni.Art Wild Stylers Crêpage de Chignon and slightly dishevel to encourage a more organic texture. 
6. Tuck some behind the ears in a casual, carefree manner. 

The makeup look created by Lisa Matson, L’Oréal Paris Cosmetics NZ Makeup Director was also a 
play on nature’s elements, “particularly the cold and heat and how it affects the skin,” says the seasoned beauty pro. “It was inspired by the theme of Wynn’s collection, which is based on the dis-function of seasons in fashion.”
