wanted a faux-hawk done to my hair but my length has always been too long. Even whilst modeling (when you're given ample opportunities to try out the coolest/craziest of styles) I was left disappointed: top knots, slick pony-tails & big curls galore but never anything "faux-hawk fun"... Zzzzz...
While getting ready the other night I decided, now is the time to attempt the coveted hairstyle while I'm enjoying the benefits of my "LOB" (long bob). So, I jumped on YouTube & found a number of DIY tutorials that followed/recreated (with the help of an army of bobby pins, baby elastics, Sexy Hair products + mirrors) & voilà
! No, it isn't perfect; I don't even know if I did it correctly but ultimately I achieved the look that I wanted & for my first attempt, I'm damn proud of my faux-hawk!
The event that scored the debut of my first faux-hawk (lucky ducks) was Phoenix Fashion Week
's "Emerging Designer Announcement"
. 14 emerging designers (from all over the US) were selected by the PHXFW team to present their collections at Phoenix Fashion Week this fall & the announcement event provided the public/media an opportunity to meet the designers & get a "chic peek" at their designs.
The 14 lucky designers are...
