Frederic Fekkai @ Rachel Roy
Andre Rodman, lead stylist for Frédéric Fekkai created two looks at the Rachel Roy Spring 2010 show – both over top voluminous looks, one with a modern edge and one more classic, both big on glamour.
Get the Look
For the classic look, a center part with soft, bouncy waves starting beneath the chin, Rodman used Fekkai COIFF™ Strong Hold Volume Mousse, then sprayed hair with Fekkai COIFF™ Defense Pre Style Thermal UV Protectant and curled it around a one inch iron. He used Fekkai Au Naturel Sheer Styling Gel for the modern look; short hair with either a severe side part tucked behind the ears or brushed straight back.

Frederic Fekkai @ NYFW S/S ’10 for Rag & Bone
Teddy Charles, lead stylist for Frédéric Fekkai, created a rough and tousled look full of texture and volume for the Rag & Bone Spring 2010 show.
Get the Look
After a few spritzes of Fekkai Tousled Wave Spray he rolled hair to make it piecey. He then wrapped and teased the hair into messy tendrils with Fekkai Full Blown Volume Lifting Hairspray. He completed the look with the Fekkai Au Natural Dry Shampoo to create a matte finish.
Fekkai Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave Spray – Create a tousled, wavy look with this lightweight styling mist. Touchable polymers help to form and rejuvenate waves with flexible control.
Fekkai Full Blown Volume Lifting Hairspray – This lightweight formula holds volume to lift the roots and delivers powerful fullness that is never stiff or sticky.
Fekkai Au Naturel Powder Clean Dry Shampoo: This naturally formulated product free of sulfates, parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances, gently cleanses hair with a natural botanical blend, infuses hair with conditioning ingredients, removes excess oil and builds volume. Hair is left refreshed and revived without the use of water.
Frederic Fekkai Spray On Hair Crystals ($18.50) is sophisticated glitter for your hair. Launched at a perfect time when holiday parties abound, this product is a fun and flirty foray into hair glitter. If you’re wary of glitter in the hair, the particles are very fine and lightweight–not like craftstore glitter in the least. I don’t find that this product gunks up my hair or acts like a hair spray (doesn’t give me any hold really…), which is a plus, in my book. I’d hate it if it made my hair hard and crunchy!
It took some experimentation to really get the product to work for me. You can’t just do short spritzes, you have to press and hold and let it mist all over your hair, then release. When I did short spritzes, you could hardly see any glitter. It made a huge difference to hold it down and apply in a single hold. I really liked the result — it was this soft mist of fine crystals all over my hair. Very festive! If it was fashionable (and you know, super inexpensive) to go around with hair glitter everyday, I would so be there.
Each bottle contains 45+ uses according to the bottle packaging, which is good, I suppose. I really don’t know what to expect in terms of usage, and I’m sure it’ll vary from person to person depending on how much you use in each setting. It comes in three shades (champagne, copper, and bronze) — and you’re probably best off going with the one opposite your natural hair color. I have both copper and bronze, and I do like them–I think I prefer copper just a tad more. For me, it really works because of the soft brown-red tones in my hair. I gotta return one of them (I think it’s bronze), because the spray nozzle stopped functioning after about four or five usages But I’ll be exchanging it for a new one, rather than returning it altogether.
My biggest beef with this product is the scent. IT STINKS! It only stinks when you’re spraying it–which is this scent of chemicals up the wazoo–so the scent doesn’t linger in your hair or anything. I think I might not be used to hair products, because maybe if I was, I wouldn’t be so adverse to this. Like I said, though, the scent is only when you’re initially spraying it on your hair and then it is gone.
Anyone else try this? What’d you think?
P.S. — No photos, because this doesn’t photograph well. I tried on about four different occasions to no avail! Sorry!
THE LOOK: Old Hollywood loose finger waves accented by modern braids in the back that were intertwined into a low twist that rested at the nape of the head. The look came together beautifully with a little homage to the 20′s and a lot of the now.
HOW TO GET THIS LOOK: Start by applying FEKKAI COIFF BOUFANT LIFTING & TEXTURIZING SPRAY on the roots and blow dry hair straight using a natural boar bristle brush. Create a strong side part. Then using a 1″ curling iron, curl the side bang and pin it into a pin curl. Once finished pin curling the bang, take a 1″ section from the top of the head and make a tousled french braid and twisted it into a low knot at the nape area. Pin in place. Finish the look with FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY and GLOSSING SHEER SHINE MIST to give it some sheen.

THE LOOK: A modern day Veronica Lake with heightened definition and a defined wave pattern. Accented with a strong side part and pull back to one side.
HOW TO GET THIS LOOK: Start by applying FEKKAI COIFF DEFENSE THERMAL UV PROTECTANT to wet hair. Brush from roots to ends with the FEKKAI CLASSIC BRUSH. Spray FEKKAI COIFF BOUFFANT LIFTING & TEXTURIZING SPRAY through out and dry hair. Using a 3/4 inch curling iron start at the nape of the neck and wrap the hair from middle to root. Make sure all the hair is going in the same direction making it a repetitious pattern. Then use the next size curling iron on the ends of the hair. Go through the entire head from right side to left side. Clip the hair into desired waves close to the scalp. Remove clips and brush out curls for a soft finish. Set with FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY.
