PHXFW Faux-hawk

Faux-hawk | Tiffany TankWhat I Wore… Earrings:  Shop Jami | Dress: H&M – Similar | Bracelets: Aldo (stacked) these & these | Midi Rings: NastyGal | Clutch: Tasha x Nordstrom | Heels: Steve Madden | Nail Polish – Mani: Pure Ice “Siren” | Nail Polish – Pedi: Essie “Blanc” | Faux-hawk hold/volume: Sexy Hair

Problem: I’ve always 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…

Solution: 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.
