Backstage Beauty: Nathan Jenden

At the Nathan Jenden spring 2008 fashion show in London, the hair look was relaxed, long and loose with a rough texture. Nathan collaborated with hair stylist Neil Moodie, who used products from Bumble and Bumble.

Neil's inspiration came from an eclectic creative vision. He imagined a modern version of a Victorian ballerina dancing hip-hop in the jungle and he executed the look by choosing natural looking, "un-done" long, tousled hair that doesn't get brushed.

  • Step 1: Since Neil Moodie did not use a brush to create this look, simply wash, condition, towel-dry hair and begin by prepping hair with Bumble and Bumble Tonic Lotion, Prep and some Styling Créme . Blow-dry roughly, using only your fingers to separate the hair.
  • Step 2: Next, take a thin flat iron and create a little bit of a wave only to the middle of the hair strands. To do this, wrap sections of hair around the iron once, then hold it for a few seconds and move the iron up and down the length of the hair to loosen the curl. Keep the crown flat and leave the ends untouched. When you're finished, mist hair with some Does it All hairspray.
  • Step 3: Lastly, for extra volume and length, you can add on hairpieces or extensions. Part hair on the side so it doesn't have a hippie feel to it. As a final touch, sprinkle on some Hair Powder to create a matte and natural look.
