Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii's forecast for Fall Hair
2009 includes a flashback to the 70's: an era considered to be a major turning
point for hair with the birth of the blow dryer, Farah Fawcett's famous style,
the Shag, the Afro and punk.
celebrity stylist David Babaii, hair is all about movement with soft layers to
achieve an updated version of Farah's world famous hairstyle.
DB: Opt for a longer
length fringe so you can easily create changes in your style. The key is
creating a lot of changes using accessories like a fabulous headband or scarf to
transform your style as often as your mood fits.
The 70's Shag incorporated many disconnected layers. In 2009,
any disconnect is out dated. A well blended and softly textured version of the
Shag will definitely turn heads.
DB: Create this look by using David Babaii for
WildAid Fibers Molding Paste. It is a distinctive styling
product ideal for all of your finishing needs, creating texture, movement and
style definition. This gentle hold paste composed of feather like fibers fashions a dramatic effect when applied. Simply
rub a small amount into the palm of your hands after hair is dry and scrunch to
create texture and definition.

DB: What woman doesn't love "Gianormous" hair? No matter what
length of texture, volume can be created numerous ways. Using volumizing
products such as David Babaii for WildAid Amplifying Shampoo and Conditioner is
the foundation for all good hair days. Next, after styling use my Volcanic Ash
Root Amplifier by lifting sections and spraying. This is like a burst of oxygen
to the hair without any build up or a sticky feel. The volume you love will
last all day.
For women with highly textured hair, the Afro gave this era a
sense of freedom and style. For Fall Hair 2009, your curls and waves can still
experience that same freedom.
DB: Do not work against your curls, instead enhance
them with David Babaii Bohemian Beach Spray. An extraordinary blend
of natural ingredients works together to create texture or volume, while strengthening and
moisturizing. It is perfect on wet or
dry hair to define your curls and waves.
For Fall 2009, hair color should be natural looking but color enhanced
with a conditioner or glaze to bring out your hair's assets.
DB: The 70's is my favorite era so think of Goldie Hawn, ABBA and Disco!
