How to get the “70’s Venice Beach chic” look seen at the Jonathan Simkhai S/S 2013 show
By Scott Cunha, Celebrity Stylist
The inspiration for the Jonathan Simkhai look was 70’s Venice Beach chic – think an effortlessly stylish California girl with a hot skateboarder boyfriend. We wanted gorgeous hair with movement, but not too done. This look was one of my favorites at Fashion Week because it’s perfect any event or occasion. I love the idea of undone hair with a major makeup look or dress, and it’s so easy to go from day to night with this style.
How to get the look:
First, I used the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer to blowdry the hair straight. (This dryer is a must at Fashion Week because we have 20-40 girls to style and it dries the hair in minutes!) Next, I tied up the hair in a loose bun and secured it with a large French pin. This is a good idea when getting the look at home because you can leave your hair in the messy bun and keep it out of your face while doing makeup or getting dressed. Also, by pinning the hair in a bun you get what I like to call a “dent” – not really a wave or curl but not super straight either.
Next, I used the T3 SinglePass 1″ Styling Iron to enhance natural-looking waves. After taking the hair down, I moved quickly through small sections with an “S” motion. To complete the look, lightly spritz over hair with a texturizer spray, and you’re ready to go.
That’s it – just a few easy steps with T3 to get this great look!
