What a week! I’m currently in Milan and blogging from my hotel room before heading out to a few shows today. I’ll also be stalking the fash pack for more hair inspiration. You should have seen the crazy scenes outside the Prada show yesterday!
I’m here thanks to Schwarzkopf Australia. Did you know that Schwarzkopf in Italy is called Testanera? I love that it’s a direct translation.
Testanera are a major sponsor of Milan Fashion Week and they have a pop up salon set up in Piazza Mercanti. If you’re in Milan stop by and get your hair done. You can even get a haircut if you want! My tip is to arrive early to make an appointment.
I popped in on the first day and I let them do whatever they wanted to my hair! I ended up with some amazing big hair (and a braid thrown in too!)
How to get the look
- My stylist started by separating the top section of my hair, and teasing it at the root.
- She used mousse to slick the sides of my hair back and secured each side with an elastic. These section were then twisted and pinned into a bun.
- She left the bottom half of my hair loose, and created two braids that followed the shape of the bun. She then pinned the ends in place above the bun.
- A little more teasing to get extra big hair and then she shaped the top section of my quiff. A few pins and a lot of hairspray kept in in place all day.
The Duomo is in the centre of Milan and is amazing. You can go up to the roof terraces and I’m hoping to get time to go up there today.
Hope you have a beautiful weekend xx
