Stylish Chicagoans celebrated eDrop-Off‘s 10th Anniversary in collaboration with the pop-up shop launch party for Silhouette, a fragrance by Christian Siriano, hosted by the designer and eDrop-Off founder Corri McFadden at Chicago’s famed Waldorf Astoria.  Along with fragrance and clothing sales, the event featured models wearing gowns by Siriano, a quick-change into looks from The Collection by eDrop-Off, the newly launched retail concept by the designer consignment store, and hair designed by yours truly.

The inspiration behind the hair was to create a strong, but feminine, look to offset the couture gowns that the models were wearing the first half of the evening.  The mohawk silhouette accentuated the models’ features, while the braids maintained a air of softness to ultimately create the ‘warrior princess’ look that you see below.

The second half of the event, the models changed into ready-to-wear looks from The Collection by eDrop-Off, and I switched up the hair by incorporating wigs of bobs in varying lengths to give the looks a more street style appeal.

women’s hair trends: low ponytail

The low ponytail is a women’s hair trend that was seen all over the catwalks for 2014.  The low ponytail is such a simple hairstyle, but it can make a strong impact.  It has the ability to open the woman’s face and show off their strong features.  I recommend using Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray to tame fly-aways and create all day hold.

trendspotting: blade runner

This season, I saw a recurring trend of sci-fi and futuristic shapes in hairstyles.  Molded, obscure shapes with a retro feel, describe the looks seen throughout the Paris fall ’14 runways.  These are some of my favorite images below, that I feel are setting a precedent for future hairstyles to come.
