NYFW hair how-to: Jon Reyman for Dyson at Christian Siriano

For Christian Siriano’s recent NYFW outing, super stylist Jon Reyman created a hair look using Dyson tools that effortlessly complemented the designer’s signature statement aesthetic.
Drawing inspiration from 80s and 90s power dressing, Reyman built on Siriano’s strong silhouettes in a variety of key ways. Entitled a ‘Victorian Matrix’, Siriano and Reyman blended tech and femininity to present a powerful and dreamlike aesthetic that dazzled on the runway. A glass finish, embellished with crimping and rhinestone elements complements Siriano’s experimental collection, which was reportedly inspired by the uncertainty of the pandemic.

To recreate this stellar look at home, Reyman provided the following notes…

1. From its unstyled state, use the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer to prep the hair, adjusting attachments according to your hair type – use either the Smoothing Concentrator with Dyson Paddle brush on straight and wavy hair, or select the Wide-tooth comb attachment, engineered with robust teeth to lengthen, and shape curly and coily hair. Delivering the ideal starting point for the finish of this look, the fast and precise airflow of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer increases smoothness and shine and decreases any frizz and flyaways.

2. Next, part the hair in the centre, applying product to give a tacky, gummy texture. Then pass through the hair with the Dyson Corrale straightener. The resulting look should be a glassy, wet look on the crown of the head. Featuring 4-cell lithium-ion battery technology, the tool delivers the thermal performance of a corded straightener without the cord, giving freedom to style from backstage to final line up.

3. Tuck the hair behind each ear, gathering at the nape of the neck and liberally applying hair spray over the style. Allow the product to set, whilst holding in place with creaseless clips to ensure no unwanted indentation to the hair. Leave in place for 10 – 15 minutes, removing immediately before the show.

4. Lock the Dyson Corrale straightener while the tool is still hot and tun a final pass across the crown of the head to smooth any unwanted flyaways. Finish by crimping the lengths and ends and adding rhinestones along the parting for added drama.
