For the premiere event for Sutton Foster’s new show, Younger, hairstylist Christopher Naselli created an edgy fauxhawk hairstyle. Get the breakdown on how to create this gorgeous look:
“Sutton sat down and said ‘What about a mohawk?’ I knew instantly she wanted some major edge,” he says. The goal: To find a hairstyle that was strong yet demure.
How he did it: “I started with her hair damp and generously applied three pumps of Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur and two large golf-ball sized dollops of Mousse au Lotus Volumatricefrom the roots to the tips, using a wide-tooth comb to distribute the mixture evenly. Then I roughdried her hair until it was 90 percent dry creating massive hold and texture.
“Next, I pulled back her hair and separated it into two ponytails, one at the crown of the head and one at the middle.
“To create that raked-up effect, I used a wide-tooth comb to pull her hair into the ponytails.
“Then, I separated each ponytail into two sections and saturated each section with a quarter-size amount of Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice. I proceeded to twist the hair until it coiled up by itself, using hairpins to pin the coil down to the head as I went. The coils fell into each other to create a uniform look from the crown to the nape of the neck.
“Once everything was in place, I set the look with a little bit of Leonor Greyl Laque Souple.” Viola a beautiful and edgy mohawk!
