Punk Jenny Packham Hair the Royal Knitted Bang FW17
With Brits dominating the silver screen and music scene, it’s no surprise Designer Jenny Packham’s FW17 runway looks took us by storm at New York Fashion Week.
With pops of plaid, corgis, leather jackets and the Union Jack, her looks and hair paid full homage, as Packham says, to the idiosyncrasies and clichés that define British culture. Her unabashed, glittering fairytale fantasy princess looks are instantly recognizable. But this season she surprised us with subtle, rebellious British-punk edge—and we loved it.
We couldn’t think of a better ‘do to flair up her edgy English fantasy than a rockin’ modern twisted look. Lose yet elegant, a Royal Knitted Bang will make you feel like a rebellious Brit rock princess who stepped out of her castle perfectly on point.
Start your royal routine by washing hair with TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and Conditioner, then prime your hair by applying the TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Mousse. Blow dry the roots with a paddle brush, while lifting hair upwards. Finish drying the ends with only hot air.
Spray a few pumps of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray to protect against heat damage. With a curling iron, curl small sections of hair starting from the back, slightly twisting strands as you wrap hair around the barrel.
“Always use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray to create a barrier against the hot tools” - Odile Gilbert, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist.
After curling, part your hair to the side, leaving plenty of locks at the front for the bang.
Grab the front of your hair and start creating the bang by twisting hair away from your face.
To create the knitted look, take small strands of hair from underneath the bang and begin wrapping them around your twisted bangs as if you were knitting, until reaching the back. Repeat the same knitting technique on the other side of hair and tie both ends together with bobby pins.
Define hair with the curling iron if needed, and tease it a little to add texture. Carefully loosen up the bangs with your fingers and tame flyaways with TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Spray.
