An exciting past week in Boston! Fresh off the Boston Fashion Week shows
in THE TENT, mizu was proud to participate in styling hair for the Lily
and Migs and Mark Miller shows on September 27th.
For Lily and Migs the looks featured vibrant color in dresses and
separates with eye catching cut-outs. Particularly exciting about the
looks were the addition of loose, textured styles including the fish tail
braid which Boston Magazine writer Tanya Pai went on to say she was
"obsessed with!" (see full article)
Stylists Josie Faria, Christine Bellamare, Donald Nelson and
Alexander Maud rounded out the fun and flirty pieces by adding extensions
and fishtailing their hearts out and the overall effect did not go
unnoticed. Congratulations Lauren and Jen of Lily & Migs for another
impressive show full of items we all want in our own closets!
Next up that evening was the Mark Miller show which from the opening
moments to the last model's walk did not disappoint! With hair styled to
complement Mark's lush and lavish furs - the mizu team of stylists
including Anna Costa, CJ Burns, and Alexander Maud effort's left the crowd
speechless and on their feet with cheers. We especially loved the white
fur looks. A stunning show and our congratulations to the entire Mark Miller team.
Wrapping up we would like to extend our thanks and admiration to sponsors
and organizers of Boston Fashion Week including The Mandarin Oriental
Boston and Edwina Kluender, Lisa Baker, Terri Mahn, Dana Moscardelli and
Jay Calderin. It was great working with all of you and from mizu to you,

mizu new york stylist Dominick Pucciarello lead the hair team for newcomer Dominic Louis (www.dominiclouis.com) for his Fall 2011 presentation at the Bunker. Dominic Louis’s Fall 2011 collection, the “Urban Emperor”, featured an entire line-up of male models to show off his unisex line. "To me this fall was about finding your inner barbarian and channeling it into a feeling of royalty and inner strength. Hence the idea of an urban emperor and the level of luxury yet rawness you will find in the collection,” said Dominic Louis, “It was about elevating the clothes and myself in a natural and realistic manner, while referencing my past present and future."
For most of the model’s, Dominick added clip-in extensions to give them long, warrior hair. Since almost all of the models had short hair, Dominick used Bumble and bumble’s hair powder to help the extensions blend in. To create texture he used Oribe Original Pomade and Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. Make-up artist Landy Dean (www.landydean.com) lead the make-up team and the skincare products were provided by Lab Series for Men (www.labseries.com).
mizu boston stylist Josie Faria worked with Pantene’s celebrity stylist (best known for being Gwen Stefani’s stylist), Danilo, for the Cushnie et Ochs (http://cushnieetochs.com/) show at Milk Studio’s on Sunday. The look, created by Danilo, was a simple bun accessorized with a turkey feather. We loved this look because it is so simple to recreate and something we can actually wear (except maybe with a smaller feather!) The look was bold enough to make a statement but didn’t overpower the clothes. We had a chance to sit and watch the show and fell in love with a handful of pieces. As soon as the fall line hits the stores we are certainly walking around the corner to Bergdorfs (where you can currently buy their line) to pick up some fall outfits!
mizu new york is excited to collaborate with Catherine Malandrino for a shopping event at her iconic SoHo boutique (468 Broome Street).

Happy Holidays from all of our top hair stylists and staff at mizu!
Hairstyle: The Finger Wave
Stylist: Dominick Pucciarello
Why He Loves It: “It’s an easy hairstyle that doesn’t take that much time. Such an easy way to change your hair from your regular hairstyle to a polished look that is good for both casual and elegant events. Plus, its even better the second day!”
What you Need: Blowdrier, Flat Brush, Oribe Royal Blowout, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray or Oribe Superfine Hairspray and hair pins.
Step 1: Start out by spraying some Oribe Royal Blowout on your hair and then finger drying with a blowdrier. This will give some volume and texture to your hair. Deeply part your hair as you usually wear it.
Step 2: Section off the front piece of your hair (ie your bangs) and take a one inch curling iron and the front section towards your face. When finished do not unroll the curl. Hold the curl and pull the curling iron out and then pin the curl with a hair pin.
Step 3: Part your hair from ear to ear. Take one inch sections and curl down. Do the same as you did with your front section and pull the iron out and pin the curl. Repeat until you finish this middle section.
Step 4: Middle part your back section and pull each side towards you and rest of your chest. Take the rest of your hair in large sections and curl under and pin. Once you are finished with your entire head spray with either Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray or Oribe Superfine Hairspray. Either product will give you a moveable hold.
Step 5: Let your curls set in the pins for a few minutes and then take all the pins out. Take a flat brush (think Mason Pierson) and brush your hair out. Your hair will be full, soft and sexy!
Hairstyle: The Classic Ponytail
Stylist: Kerry Resnick
Why He Loves It: “It’s the perfect day to evening look.”
What You Need: Davines Defining Invisible Hairspray, Elastic Hair Band, Comb, Bumble and bumble Does it All, Large Barrel Curing Iron or Flat Iron and Bobby Pins
Step 1: Start off by sectioning off the top section of your hair from your ears right up to the top of your head. You can loosely tie back the rest of your hair while you work on this piece. Back comb (tease) the top section for volume and spray with Bumble and bumble Does it All. For a soft look keep a section of your bangs down and sweep to the side. For a more dramatic look keep all your hair back.
Step 2: Pull all your hair into a ponytail and make sure the sides and nape of your neck are flat. Lightly smooth over the top of the ponytail but keep the height from the teasing. Secure your ponytail with an elastic hair band. Take a thin piece of hair from underneath your ponytail, comb flat and spray Davines Invisible hairspray. Wrap the hair around the band to hide the band. Secure the hair with a few bobby pins as needed.
Step 3: For a more severe look run over the ponytail with a flat iron or for a soft look take large barrel curling iron and add some body and wave with some curls. Make sure the ends get into the iron. Finish off your look with Davines Defining Invisible Hairspray. There you have it, an easy day to night look just in time for the holidays!
