Miami Swim: Backstage at Suboo

The movement and artistry of modern dance served as an inspiration for the Suboo Swim 2015 collection, and for the sexy, undone-but done hair that went with it. We got the lowdown from the Catwalk by TiGi team (lead by guru Nick Irwin) on how they did the knock-out look.

First the process:

  1. Work the CATWALK® by TIGI® Bodifying Spray through towel-dried hair from root to tip; blow dry using a round brush to smooth the cuticle

  2. Using a medium size tong, create loose haphazard curls/waves throughout the head

  3. Create three, 3-strand braids (a large braid on top of head, two smaller braids at the side), taking care to create a bit of lift at the hairline on top. Secure all braids together with pins at the curvature of the back of the head

  4. Use fingers to loosen and texturize the braids and hair at the nape of the neck to achieve the desired “undone” look

  5. Finish with a bit of CATWALK® by TIGI® Camera Ready Shine Spray at the hairline and set the entire look with CATWALK® by TIGI® Work It Hairspray 

End result:  look that said "Chic post workout coif" , that can easily be imagined on hip girls all summer long.
