At New York Bridal Fashion Week F/W 2017 the Metro Look hair team, lead by hairstylist, T. Cooper, were sponsored by ECRU New York and ISA Professional to create fun, yet elegant hair for the Fabulous Philippines show for Bridal Fashion Week at the beautiful Central Park venue, Landmark on the Park. Fabulous Philippines: A Perfect Wedding Destination, is a collaboration between two of the country’s most respected and internationally recognized fashion designers, Albert Andrada and Barge Romas. The talented Filipino designers have consistently brought pride and created significant contributions the fashion industry.
Barge Ramos’ models where styled in textured ponytails using ECRU New York products: Setting Spray, Sunlight Styling Spray, and Texture Spray. The style was named the “Piecey Pony” for its effortless appearance. “Barge wanted something classic, but he also wanted to keep it youthful” said Cooper. The hairdo was created by making a deep side part and spraying the hair with Setting Spray to smooth it, before securing the hair into a ponytail. The ponytail was sprayed with Sunlight Styling Spray, and then loose waves were made with an ISA Professional 1” flat iron by bending the hair in alternate directions, leaving the ends straight. The look was finished by using Texture Spray and fingers to create a fun, undone texture.
Albert Andrada wanted his models to look classic and regal. The designer’s collection was complimented by beautiful headpieces, so the models were given large buns using ECRU New York products: Setting Spray, Acacia Protein Oil, and Dry Wax. The hairstyle was called the “Crowned Queen”. The style was created by securing the hair into a ponytail with a side part, and spray omg the hair with Setting Spray. The hair in the ponytail was then curled with a ISA Professional 1” flat iron, and Acacia Protein Oil was used to smooth the hair and create shine. Next, the curls were brushed out, and their hair was shaped into a large bun. This style was finished by using Dry Wax to tame baby hairs and flyaways, and placing a headpiece on top. “Beyond gorgeous” Cooper says of the look.
