Planet Hair at New York Fashion Week!

Three stylists from Planet Hair recently returned from a trip that fulfilled one of their lifelong dreams –  working behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week!  Hair stylists Jesse McMillin and Mel Thorton, along with makeup artist Emma Terry, represented Wichita’s Planet Hair salon at the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week., working with the Aveda Fashion Week team to create the hair and makeup looks that walked down the runway!

Recognizing that working on hair and makeup for these shows is a momentous career achievement for stylists, Planet Hair seized the opportunity to send three people to work with the Aveda team. New York Fashion Week is one of the biggest, most exciting events in the fashion industry. During the week of February 9, around 232,000 people attended more than 500 fashion shows during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 and over 2 million watched the shows online to see the trends the international designers have prepared for fall.

“I’ve always wanted to be a part of Fashion Week, since I watched runway shows as a little kid, but I never thought I’d have the opportunity to take part in it,” Terry said. “This was a dream come true!”

To qualify to participate in Fashion Week, Planet Hair asked their stylists to write an essay, telling the salon owners why they wanted to attend Fashion Week. The winning stylists attended training in New York in January, sponsored by Planet Hair. McMillian and Thorton studied with John Raymond, the lead stylist of the Aveda Fashion Week team and Terry worked with Janell Geason, lead makeup artist, to practice the season’s runway trends and techniques.

“I am very happy for the experience, even though it was terrifying and pushed me out of my comfort zone,” remarked Thorton. “I’m grateful to the owners of Planet Hair for making this possible.”

Joining 75 other international Aveda artists, Planet Hair’s artists worked in small teams during Fashion Week, getting models ready for the shows. McMillin and Thorton worked with upcoming designers LeAnne Marshall and Marcel Osterag. McMillin also did hair for a collective show of three designers in the Latinista Show. Terry created makeup looks for the Francesca Liberatore, Calvin Luo and Louis Verdad shows.

“Fashion Week was an incredible experience,” said McMillin. “It was fun being able to do edgier styles than we usually do in the salon, and creating styles I’ve never done before. I’m ready to go back and do it again!”

Representing Planet Hair at New York Fashion Week

During the week of February 9, around 125,000 people will attend fashion shows during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 and over 2 million will watch the shows online to see the trends the international designers have prepared for fall. It’s an exciting event in the fashion business and a crazy, fun time to be in New York City.

This year we’ll know at least a few people who will be there in person! Mel, Jessie and Emma will be joining the Aveda Fashion Week team, working behind the scenes to create the hair and makeup looks walking down the runway! These three were given opportunity of a lifetime by writing an essay, telling us why they wanted to attend Fashion Week.

Emma told us, “I’ve always wanted to be a part of Fashion Week, since I watched runway shows a little kid, but I never thought I’d have the opportunity to take part in it. This is a dream come true!”

In preparation for their big adventure, Emma, Mel and Jessie recently attended training in New York for runway styling. Mel and Jessie studied with Jon Reyman, the lead stylist of the Aveda Fashion Week team. With 20 years of experience creating runway hair styles for Fashion Week, Jon showed them hair do’s they’ll need to know for the shows. Emma studied with Janell Geason, lead makeup artist of the Aveda Fashion Week team, to practice this season’s makeup techniques and how to use products differently for the runway.

They will return to New York in February for three days of hard work. Joining 75 other international Aveda artists, they’ll work in small teams at the actual Fashion Week runway shows. Creating looks for around three shows each day, the artists will be shown a quick demo of the looks that Jon and Janell have decided on with each show’s designer, and will be expected to quickly replicate that exact look on many models.

We can’t wait to hear their stories when they get back. Stay tuned for more about their fabulous fashion adventure!

Want to look younger? Protect your skin!

Daily_Light_Guard_stylized_product_imageEnvironmental damage is the most common cause of skin damage like dark spots, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to make daily protection a habit. Let Nature help defend your skin’s natural beauty with sheer, weightless defense against the elements that damage skin. Great for all skin types, add daily light guard™ to your skin care routine, over your morning moisturizer, to help defend against the elements that visibly damage skin every day.

New daily light guard™ has a spf of 30 with advanced technology to make its zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sunscreens glide on sheer and smooth—while plant-derived anti-oxidants help protect you against free radical damage from environmental elements. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are effective sunscreens because they create a physical barrier on the skin’s surface—helping protect skin from UVA and UVB rays. This is how Nature helps defend your skin’s natural beauty!
