Some were impressed by the puffy pink eyes at Suno's F/W 2014 show, others the chunky zippered knits and metallic glittery jacquard worn by the models. Personally, I was transfixed by the hair.
From a distance the hair looked straight and healthy, a little plain, even; but closer inspection revealed a subtle, glittering detail: the models had golden parts!
I am a huge fan of this gilded detail. It’s like a tiny, secret crown of fancy lady-ness that you can paint into your hair for special occasions. Were the parts actually painted with 24-karat gold? Probably not. Did it look just as luxe though? Absolutely.
The best part of this metallic part look: it takes only two steps to attain it!
Middle-part your hair and brush it as straight as possible. (You may want to flat-iron it beforehand.)
I used two of my favourite Davines products to give my hair a silky shiny texture: OI Oil and OI Milk. These two work together to diminish frizz and flyaways and give your hair gorgeous shine (not to mention a delightful smell).
Paint your part! I used Lush’s Emotional Brilliance liquid eyeliner in Fantasy, a product perfectly suited to this look because of the thicker application brush.
I simply pulled my hair aside as tightly as I could and painted the scalp, careful not to get too much in my actual hair (I didn’t want to end up looking like Viserys in Game of Thrones).
If you’re not a fan of gold, try a different metallic liquid liner that suits your fancy! I’m pretty excited to try a side part with a hint of coppery rose gold Happiness liner myself!
What do you think? Should molten parts take over the sidewalks, or keep to the catwalk?
