Q&A WITH HAIR STYLIST, PAUL HANLON
Tell us about the inspiration behind this season’s Helmut Lang hair.


This season was more about the girls and casting then the hair. We kept the look simple, pure and monochromatic. The girls were given either black, brown or ash blonde hair. On 75% of the models we used a temporary color mousse to give the hair some rich texture. 


What secret product / tool must you always have on hand for the shows?


CHI Helmet Head Hair Spray to hold the looks in place and TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen Spray to thicken the hair and give it texture. 


Your most memorable fashion week moment is _______


Having the opportunity to work with the brilliant Alexander McQueen in Paris. It was an overwhelming and inspiring experience. He is a man that is truly missed. 


What’s the simplest way to recreate this runway look at home?


After you wash your hair don’t blow dry it and add some light mousse. Pull your hair back in a low pony tail and twist it in a tight knot. Let it dry for a bit, then take out the knot and blow your hair out on cool. 


You travel a ton for all the fashion weeks, what’s your favorite part about NYC?


The energy of the city.
