Tousled hair, sexy, club, after-party 4am hair
Matrix Style File: Richard Tyler & Nicolas Jurnjack Team Up Fall Fashion Week NYC 2001
Hairstylist Nicolas Jurnjack worked closely with Richard Tyler to conceptualize the 4am tousled hair, sexy. clubby, after-the-party hair that this Designer wanted for his Fall 2001 collection.
Matrix: ”4a.m. hair” says it all … but can you add a few words?
Nicolas Jurnjack: It’s wavy, dewy, mussed, topsy-turvy, teased, textured, exaggerated, unfinished and uncontrived.
Matrix: How did you get this look?
Nicolas Jurnjack: Since I don’t have four hours to prepare the hair with rollers (who does anymore!). I used lots of product and curling tools to create the look. Between outfit changes I used a ton of hairspray to keep the shape round and full.
How did you make it all work together the fashion, the makeup, the hair?
“His fall collection of sharp shouldered suits and Deco dressing called for a bold, modern edge in make-up and hair. We came up with the idea of capturing the “After-Hours Girl”. Not when she goes out, but when she comes home after dancing, after clubbing, after kissing. Tousled hair, messy and misty, eyes smoky and smudged… attitude strong and sexy 4a.m. hair is the trend we expect to see on European runways.”
When the two collaborated on the “after dancing, “after hours” tousled look Tyler wanted for his models strutting his Fall 2001 collection, the result was a smashing success. Jurnjack and his team of six created the softly textured styles for 20 models. Normally a labored task Jurnjack used his Biolage and Amplify product knowledge to create the looks in a mere hour and a half instead of the usual four.
Instead of rollers we used Biolage Hydra Foaming Styler and textured the hair with a larger curling iron. Complete Control Hairspray kept the round shape of the hair.
Finer Hair On fine hair, to build internal structure, I worked with Amplify Volumizing Foam and sprayed Amplify Root Lifter at the base of roots rather than use rollers.
Next I went in with a large 2-inch barrel curling iron to create a soft texture, loose waves and explosions of curl in select areas. I never touched a brush, instead I use my fingers to separate.
I back-combed the crown and back of head to form a strong shape.
I randomly pulled pieces apart and let curls go off in different directions so it looked naturally messy.
Then I pinned hair every which way, sometimes tucking a stringy curl into a jacket for effect.
I finished with Amplify Hair Spray for high-volume hold. To get that late-night wet look, I sprayed on Vavoom Liquid Shine.
Fuller Hair On fuller hair, instead of rollers, I used a brush and Biolage Hydro-Foaming Styler as the mousse. Thermal Active Setting Spray whenever hair was resistant to curl, and a Finishing Spritz and Complete Control Hair Spray to hold the round shape of the hair.
