NYFW: Backstage at Mara Hoffman SS14 with TIGI

Mara Hoffman HairIt is pretty much impossible to not be happy when you’re around Mara Hoffman and her collection. The Mara Hoffman’s Spring Summer 2014 collection was full of color, light, and joy —an embracement of the rainbow and all the positive diversity of light, love, and manifestation that it represents.  The collection stayed true to her classic silhouettes and  brought chiffons, CDC’s and cottons to life through vibrant color palettes in a unity of different cultures and cosmic spaces through a prism of colors.

Backstage we took a moment with with Nick Irwin, Global Creative Director at CATWALK by TIGI, to get the 411 on the hair. When asked to describe the look in 3 words, “ethnic, bohemian cool” we’re Irvin’s choices. Clean, off the face with an ethnic vibe he went on to describes this look as as, “A rainbow warrior princess!”Catwalkd

That fierce Rapunzel braid wrapped in artisanal Guatemalan belts! Don’t worry if you don’t have the length you can still get the look by adding an extension to your braid! Key CATWALK by TIGI products used: 1. Curlesque Strong Mousse, 2. Session Series True Wax, 3. Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray, and 4.Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray for an added shine.
