MARK FAST

Be hot when you’re cool! The Mark Fast show was a mixture of urban chic and demi couture knitwear! Hair and makeup were a nod to the ‘the 90’s IT Girl’! Hair was straight with an attitude and shine. Girls with curls we kept big and bold, and the boys were naturally cool and groomed for an undone look.

LOOK #1: 90’s IT Girl
  1. Create a middle parting.
  2. Before blow-drying, spray each section with OSiS+ Volumising Mousse.
  3. Using your favourite round brush, blow-dry the hair straight, section by section, moving up the head.
  4. Take horizontal sections and use your flat iron to create a super straight finish. Spray each section with OSiS+ Super Dry Flex Hairspray.
  5. Spray the hair with OSiS+ Sparkler Shine spray.
LOOK #2: 90’s IT Girl with Curls

For high voltage shine on your curl and texture, spray hair with OSiS+ Sparkler Shine.

Hot tip…
