Sebastian Professional AW/14 Collection Totemic

Culture dash season Sebastian dives into the melting pot, twisting traditional forms of creativity to reshape the future of hair. The new collection Totemic inspired by a creative blending of customs and craft from around the world  features bold new looks. Global Artistic Directors Michael Polsinelli and Shay Dempsey examined the craft and deconstructed them, creating something new. The artistic duo created nine looks for the Totemic Collection using new styling techniques  such as curve skimming and Re-Fabricate.
To enable these techniques and help stylists reinvent the Totemic looks Sebastian is introducing new ways of using some of its top products such as: Mousse Forte, Re-Shaper, Craft-clay and Tickefy Foam. Here is my selection of my fav looks!

Look 1

Hair was blow-dried with Thickefy Foam, before the fringe hairpiece was placed on the head. Starting from the occipital bone, the roots were backbrushed to the temple and fixed with Re-Shaper. Keeping the top flat, hair was backbrushed away from face. A low ponytail was created at the nape keeping the rounded volume at the back.

Look 2

Hair was first blow-dried with Trilliant, then straightenes out from the head using flat irons. The melted clay techniques was used to fix the strands at the top.

Look 3

A rectangular section was taken on the top and the triangular form pinned at the temple. Horizontal sections on the top were backcombed and placed over the form. The back was sectioned off with 2 diagonal lines. Two high ponytails were created at the back using hair from bothside.
The ponytalis were then  connected and tied at the back with a strip of leather. Roots were backbrushed at the back. The surface smoothed with the brush. A rounded shape was created by pinching the hair together at the bottom of the neck.
