Very few shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week offer the magnificent stylings for both men and women on the same runway. One of the few (and one of my favorites) was the MONARCHY Collection... and it offered the best of both worlds (meaning the worlds of hair and fashion). 13 stylists, led by Sean James for Rusk, worked fast and furiously on these models, many of whom walked in with just 5 minutes for prep!

The women hit the runway.

For the female models, James blended a 70's disco curl with an 80's scrunchy perm.


A Sloan Ranger

The men's looks were a nod to the "Sloan Rangers in London", a term referring to a combination of "Sloane Square," a location in Chelsea famed for the wealth of its residents, and the television Western character "The Lone Ranger."

James made it simple to recreate. He prepped damp hair with RUSK THICK and blow dried the hair while smoothing it out. He then isolated the hairline sections and set them forward toward the face, creating a face frame. The remaining hair was set in a classic set using inch sections wrapping the hair from the base to the ends using tension and high heat, creating a tighter and consistent curl.

In finishing the look, Sean flipped the head upside down and sprayed with W8LESS shaping spray, lightly separating the curl, making the look full and soft at the same time.
