RUNWAY REPORT TIGI Get SLICK TIGI’s Paul Hanlon saturates strands to the hilt at Helmut Lang. Backstage at Helmut Lang, TIGI lead stylist Paul Hanlon is extremely animated as he weaves the tail of his hair muse. “She’s the girl who loves rock ‘n’ roll concerts; she’s been head-banging all night long, so her hair’s really greasy and sweaty and extremely unkempt,” he pauses. “So it’s not pretty hair at all.” Not pretty? Well, not in the traditional hyperglossed, polished and oh-so-perfect sense. But, that’s the point: The Helmut Lang girl is not traditional, nor is she perfect. “She’s quite the tough girl—quite cool. Maybe even a bit rebellious,” Hanlon says. This tough chick rocks locks laden in product, which Hanlon says is key to this hairstyle. “We’re layering on the product—and lots of it,” he notes. First up: TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray (tigihaircare.com). “This takes out the soft side of the hair; it gives it a little more substance and separation to work with,” he relates. Next: a heavy helping of Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray, and loads and loads (a whole tube per girl, to be exact) of Session Series Styling Cream. “These two make the hair quite greasy, heavy and shiny, and when they dry, they leave the hair looking wet,” Hanlon explains. He then combs through his concoction with a wide-tooth comb rather than a brush because “I want those little irregularities [that a comb can make] in the hair,” he informs. From there, Hanlon gathers the saturated strands into a tight ponytail at the nape and then pulls random bits out so as not to appear too contrived. “This style should look like the model did it herself— that she didn’t give this look much thought,” he says. Finally, Hanlon splits the ponytail in half and knots the top half for a more organic feel. “The knot sort of makes it look a bit wrong,” he laughs. But in his hands, it’s totally right. —Karie L.
