24 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | SEPTEMBER 2018 FHI Heat artistic director Sean James looks to an unusual mother-daughter dynamic as a source of inspiration for dressed-down waves. —KLF M other-daughter relationships are fi lled with happiness, strife and every emotion in-between, making them prime fodder for creatives in search of multilayered inspiration. Backstage at the Bibhu Mohapatra show, FHI Heat (@fhiheat) artistic director Sean James relays that the collection's vision revolves around one such relationship—that of Miss Havisham and her adopted daughter Estella in the Charles Dickens book Great Expectations. Specifi cally, Mohapatra gravitated toward the Alfonso Cuarón-directed fi lm Great Expectations—a modern-day take on the novel, where tight ringlets are traded out for unfussy bends. "The runway show's stylist, Anya Ziourova, wanted hair that looks childlike and specifi cally undone, refl ecting a little girl dressing up in her mother's clothing. Translating that [idea] to the hair, I created a look that's not too contrived," explains James. To achieve this uncontrived appeal, James spritzes hair with Stylus High Altitude Root Lift Spray to add texture, and then wraps lengths around the Platform 1" Professional Curling Iron. "We're creating more of an 'undressed' wave with this, leaving the ends free," he says. "You twist the section as you wind it around the barrel." James then shakes and loosens the waves with his hands, explaining that he desires a "dry texture through the ends but with more control through the roots and top." To fi nish, he mists Stylus Stay Put Mega Hold Hair Spray throughout and presses ends with the Platform 1" Professional Styling Iron. "This gives a fl attened look through the ends," he notes. Some models receive a headscarf—a bit of Miss Havisham projected onto this troupe of Estellas. Headscarf or none, James asserts that this is "a relatable look—everyday undressed waves for the confi dent woman."
