Trendsetters/Runway Report Split/ Fit Together Uptown meets downtown in the Oribe-styled high-low ponytails at Marissa Webb. D ichotomy is at the center of Marissa Webb’s spring 2013 collection, where light commingles with dark, hard abuts against soft, and casual is almost indistinguishable from elegant—because in this former J. Crew designer’s hands they’re practically one and the same. Naturally, the hair also embraces the melding of disparate ideas, but as Oribe Artistic Director Michael Angelo explains it, not two but three styles join to make one: a chic-yet-mussed, matte ponytail that speaks to the designer’s sensible modernity. “Marissa showed me three looks, and I worked to combine them into one,” Angelo says, adding, “She really understands the New York City girl [a muse for his hairstyle]; she is that woman.” First, Angelo massages Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray ( through the roots and midlengths to create bedroom-ready texture. “Though we’re going matte and undone, it should be noted that there’s a difference between ‘messy’ and doing an intentional, thoughtful idea of mussed hair as an effect,” he relates. To further rough Designer Marissa up texture and lend lift, Angelo backcombs the Webb’s wares call for a roots all around the head. A misting of Oribe cool-girl hairstyle. Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray helps him manage strands as he loosely gathers the hair into a low ponytail, keeping the height at the crown visible. After wrapping a section of hair around the ponytail’s base, Angelo goes back in with Oribe Rough Luxury Molding Wax to break up and soften curls near the ends as well as rake the product through the hairline with his fingers to lend what he calls “juicy separation.” To finish, he fluffs the ponytail with a final pass of Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and then seals the look with Oribe Superfine Hair Spray. The Oribe Dry Texturizing result: relaxed yet defined, uptown meets Spray lends matte downtown, tough and soft—a complete texture. and total meeting of opposites that, in the right hands, work incredibly well as one. There’s a difference between ‘messy’ and doing an intentional, thoughtful idea of mussed hair as an effect.” 40 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | MARCH 2013 Hero Product SLAVEN VLASIC/GETTY IMAGES; PAUL MORIGI/WIREIMAGE NYC Cool
