CUSHNIE ET OCHS & PANTENE
By Delaila Models aren't the only ones hitting Lincoln Center this week. Fashion and beauty bloggers gathered for a roundtable event with Pantene's Celebrity Stylist Danilo and designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs.
The three recently collaborated backstage for Cushnie et Och's fashion show where Danilo was the key hairstylist.
On the models, Danilo added flair to the classic bun with feathers for an automatic bold statement.
For their Fall 2011 show, Michelle and Carly say their pieces were inspired by the Native American culture with a modern touch.
The duo has come a long way from The Parsons New School of Design where they met their junior year. Today, their collections are available at stores like Bergdorf Goodman.
THE CLASSIC PONYTAIL
First rule: Models must have an unwashed scalp.
Leave-in conditioner helps fortify and strengthen hair. Don't wash or style your hair as you normally would.
Danilo's ultimate pet-peeve is unruly hair, and says he is obsessed with a perfectly well- combed ponytail. Refrain from elastics which tear hair and opt for a hair tie that wraps around the ponytail instead.
"It's all about healthy hair, and great hair is an education," says Danilo. "What you put in your body reflects in your skin and hair."
