Adam Selman Has Your Valentine’s Day Hair Covered
Posted on 10 February 2017
Earlier today, amid torrents of snow, Adam Selman joyfully helped kick off New York Fashion Week, despite the sharp wind gushing from outdoors. Inside, that sunnier mood prevailed, thanks in part to the girlishly off-kilter top knots that bounced playfully off the head of each model.
Backstage, hairstylist James Pecis explained that the faux-pompadours were inspired by ’50s quiffs and meant to play off the collection’s cowboy motifs—of Clint Eastwood’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, in particular. “It’s this Western vibe,” he said, prepping models’ lengths with Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray, before tugging them into an off-set ponytail loop that dangled. “Like they’ve been traveling through the desert.” Paired with blooming red roses on the runway, it read oddly romantic given its otherwise irreverent roots—or, one wonderfully weird way to take on Valentine’s Day.
