Backstage Pass: Zero Maria Cornejo Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Show

amika joined forces with beauty sponsor again for the Zero Maria Cornejo Fashion Show. amika provided Stylers, Hair Dryers, Straightening Combs and Styling Mats for the hair team that worked their magic on the models at Zero Maria Cornejo SS2012. Lead hairstylist Martin Cullen created a complex hair look for the show including twists and folds molded tight to the head.

You might need a few extra sets of hands to attempt this hair look on yourself but if you want to try it, here is how to do it:

1. Blow dry hair straight. Martin used the amika Black NRG Professional Drying System.

2. Straighten hair to create a perfectly smooth look. Martin used the amika Ceramic Styler with 1.25" Floating Plates.

3. Create a side part. Take two small sections of hair below the part and twist them back parallel to the part, tight to the head, and secure with a tie.

4. Fold sections flat against the head at the nape of the neck and secure with bobby pins. Use hair spray for additional hold.

5. Apply netting to protect the smooth hair and blow dry to set. Martin used the amika NRG Professional Drying System.

The finished look:

amika Mini Stylers were also given to all of the front row guests in attendance:
