From Runway to Real Way: Marc Jacobs' Deep Side Part

Posted by Assunta on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 2:49 PM

Marc Jacobs entire beauty look was inspired by Edie-Sedgwick, the 1960's icon with big eyes and fair skin. Marc Jacobs makeup and hair was styled perfectly to capture the essence, with a teased, tousled ponytail and a deep side part.
"This is a styled-then-slept-in look: this girl had a glamourous hairstyle the night before, and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee. The height around the face which I created with my new fashion-week go-to product, Redken quick tease 15, is enough to highlight the face, but is not over-the-top Amy Winehouse height. In addition, a few of the models had their hair colored very blonde and black last night, creating a stronger, more graphic silhouette which compliments this collection."
-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Products You'll Need:

Redken body full instant bodifier volumizing foam for baby fine hair

Rockhaholic Dirty Secrety Dry Shampoo

Redken headset 25 extra strength finishing spray maximum control


How to Get the Look:

  1. Apply a generous amount of volumizing foam from roots to ends and blow dry straight
  2. Create a deep left part that is not perfectly clean, but defined.
  3. Begin to create volume at the crown by holding up 2 inch sections of hair straight up and away from the head and spraying the first 3-4 inches at hair at roots with the finishing spray, backcombing. Hold section up for a few seconds as it dries and let fall, continuing on the next section and throughout the entire head for an all-over backcombed effect.
  4. Gather hair into a low ponytail at the base of the head, leaving the height on top and adding the Rockaholic dry shampoo aerosol hair powder/dry shampoo for extra matte texture.
  5. Pull a few wisps out of the final pony ensuring it doesn't look too "done."
