Backstage Beauty: Peter Som

While FabSugar attended the Peter Som fashion show last season, they were unable to make it on this trip—but that's okay. BellaSugar's got the goods on how to create the sexy, tousled hair from this season's Spring 2008 show.

The goal of lead hairstylist Eugene Souleiman was to have runway hair that looked fresh, young and natural, with a slight edge. He is quoted saying, "It's the look of the uptown girl that parties downtown."

And on a makeup note, was anyone else surprised they the models weren't wearing the Peter Som for Lancome lipstick? I guess that is just so Fall '07.

  • Step 1: Cleanse and nourish hair with the appropriate shampoo and conditioning treatment for your hair type.
  • Step 2: Spray hair with a little bit of ghd miracle mist to control fly-aways and frizz. Next, spray on some ghd thermal protector to ensure hair won't get damaged during the heat styling process.
  • Step 3: Then, to achieve the natural tousled look, use the ghd new styler (as opposed to a standard flat iron) on the part of the hair closest to the scalp and bring it down only mid-way. Do not iron the ends of the hair.
  • Step 4: Lastly, spray on a generous amount of ghd sea spray to create matte, beachy waves. Use your fingers to separate any curls that seem overly defined.
