NYC Cutler Salon Stylist & Redken Grooming & Styling Expert, Jenny Balding was backstage at the Paola Hernández show to create the hair look hitting the runway at this season's NYFW.
"Paolas' collection this season has strong shapes but have a beautiful fluid movement so I wanted the hair to reflect that with the strength of the braid and soft flow of shin, silky, straight hair. This look can be worn really at any time but it's a fantastic alternative to wearing your hair down for an evening look." - Jenny Balding, Cutler Salon Stylist & Redken Grooming & Styling Expert
Get the Look:
- Blow dry very straight with Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion
- Section a mohawk section of 2" width coming into a point at the nape.
- Apply Redken align 12 protective straightening lotion again to this section as it will help hold the braid. Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape and secure with small band.
- Finish with Cutler Flyaway Stick on stray hairs to keep the look polished.

About the Collection
The Paola Hernández Spring 2014 Collection titled “Singularity,” recognizes the spark that lives in each of our hearts. The spark is the sole place in each of us in which the entire universe dwells. When it is honored and connected with, we can become one. The collection portrays this notion of Singularity with pleats that represent the unfolding of the spark in each of our hearts when we are present and conscious.
