Backstage Pass: Cynthia Rowley Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Show

amika provided the backstage hair team for the Cynthia Rowley Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Show. Key hairstylist Shon, who has styled for magazines including ID and Italian Vogue Beauty, lead his team armed with amika styling tools and haircare to create hair look for the show.

Here is how he did it:

1. Mist hair with a volumizing spray for texture and volume. Shon used amika 2-in-1 Volumizing and Styling Spray.

2. Apply a serum all over for more separation and shine. Shon used amika Obliphica Heat Defense Serum.

3. Create natural curls with variation and texture by using curler with a variety of barrel sizes. Shon used the amika Triple Barrel Curler. Using different barrel sizes means the curls are not too perfect achieving the laid-back look the hair stylist and designer wanted.

4. Add an ample amount of a thick curl defining cream to the roots to create a slept in, almost greasy texture. Shon used amika Obliphica Curl Defining Cream.

5. Finish with shine spray all over for shine. Shon used amika Obliphica Finishing Shine Spray.

The final look was cool, slicked back and beautiful, an effortless yet chic way to wear your hair for Spring.

Cynthia Rowley's collection was very smart with great tension between feminine romantic elements and the structured silhouettes. We went crazy for the prints, especially the abstracted florals and metallic gold geometric prints.

The front row included Lindsey Lohan, Alexa Chung, Derek Blasberg, Lisa Edlestein and Chris and Adrienne Bosh.
