NYFW Backstage at BELLAVANCE – Get The Look with BANGSTYLE

February 14, 2013

How many times have you read about a trend that’s projected to be major within the next couple of months, wishing you could try that particular look sooner? Well here’s a look you can try NOW! For the BELLAVANCE presentation at Milk Studio’s MADE for Peroni Fashion Week, Celebrity and editorial stylist Wesley O’Meara imagined a very wearable look for the show that complimented the “modern luxury with a hint of sportswear” collection.  Leading a team of stylists backstage, Wesley used BANGSTYLE products to achieve the look.

INSPIRATION: “I wanted to make it look like the girl was active and running around all day, but really find a texture that was simple and undone, and could be thrown back into a chignon and EASILY turn into a sophisticated look.


  1. I used the girls’ natural texture as a base and simply spritzed the hair with the BANGSTYLE Light Sea Salt Mist all over to enhance their natural texture and just let that air dry.
  2. Then, at the hairline, I applied a very liberal amount of the BANGSTYLE Smoothing Lotion, to make the hair look almost wet.
  3. I added a drop of the BANGSTYLE Thickening Fiber Gel to the same place along the hairline for light hold.  Mixing the two products keeps the gel from turning crunchy as gels tend to do, and also keeps the Smoothing Lotion from evaporating.
  4. The result is a beautiful shiny “wet” look without looking overly greasy.
  5. I clipped the hair out of the models faces and finished with a bit of the BANGSTYLE Flexible Hold Spray to help set the hair, and when the girls were dressed I removed the clips and let the hair fall naturally.”
