62 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2015 Trendsetters/ Runway Report COURTESY OF R+CO (2); RUNWAY: TOM LAU/COURTESY OF R+CO T hirty-fi ve years into the fashion biz, and designer Anna Sui's girl is recognizable, no matter the ever-changing infl uences that sweep into Sui's life. That well-established girl is bohemian, relaxed, fun, colorful. She's a magpie, a nomad, a collector of vintage trinkets. And this season she's a Nordic Viking, but her roots are still quintessential Sui, right down to her loosely kinked hair. R+Co ( Hair Lead Garren has long stood by Sui's side, creating every runway hairstyle for the folksy designer since her fi rst show in 1992. For this fall, "we're going Viking; we're going pagan; we're going Nordic," says Garren. "It's about the girls who really didn't cleanse their hair, they rinsed it." Naturally, Garren has a modern-day way of achieving this crunchy, textured look: "I had all the girls prep their hair with ANALOG Cleansing Foam Conditioner," he says. From there, he cocktails ONE Prep Spray and ROCKAWAY Salt Spray and works the two through the hair, scrunching tresses into rough bends. At no time does he employ a curling iron; each wave is crafted through layering products. The desired effect, he explains, is "warrior-like hair that's piece-y and separated." As a fi nal step, Garren mists FOIL Frizz + Static Control Spray onto the hair, breaking up the curls with his fi ngers. "Then we're letting it dry on its own," he says. "Once [the hair] dries, it dries in the perfect texture." Battle-ready with no iron needed. Un-ironed Maiden Ditching a curling iron in favor of R+Co products only, Garren puts a relaxed hair bend in Anna Sui's Viking maidens. —KARIE L. FROST Hero Product R+Co FOIL Frizz + Static Control Spray is the fi nal ingredient to a cocktail of piece-y perfection. Viki e Each model's hair boasts a different amount of bend based on its natural texture.
