MFW: MARTIN GRANT GALA DINNER ‘HOW-TO’

Melbourne-born, Paris-based designer Martin Grant showcased polished looks in chic materials during Melbourne Fashion Week’s Gala Dinner event, which brought together fashion and food to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

Our team styled smooth, sleek looks with tons of shine and lustre to complement the silhouettes that glided down the runway.

“The hair for the evening incorporated a minimalistic look that heroes the luxe designs from Martin Grant. Hair was presented as ‘fabric’: highly polished, buffed and groomed. SESSION.SPRAY was our featured product because of the high shine and control it gives but also allowing the hair to stay controlled but not stiff,” explains Kevin Murphy.

Products used: LEAVE-IN.REPAIR, SHIMMER.ME BLONDE, SESSION.SPRAY

To create this look, apply LEAVE-IN.REPAIR to freshly washed hair and smooth out with a LARGE.ROLL.BRUSH. Then, blow dry hair smooth and straight, away from the face. Next, start at the back of the head, taking two inch sections, and use a large curling tong to create a soft bend throughout the mid-lengths of the hair. Apply a generous amount of SESSION.SPRAY throughout the sides to encourage the hair back. Finish with a mist of SHIMMER.ME BLONDE to add overall shine and soften the texture.
