PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week kicks off in Karachi

http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2011\10\22\story_22-10-2011_pg9_17

October 20, 2011, saw the start of the fourth instalment of the Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) Sunsilk Fashion Week in Pakistan. Indeed this time, the PFDC and Sunsilk took their week of fashion further to a bigger business platform teaming up with Expo Pakistan, in collaboration with the TDAP whereby PFDC Sunsilk Fashion week is being held in parallel to the trade event.

Day 1 of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week was structured into 2 acts, which featured 3 ramp shows each with 5 distinct designers and a show by the students of the PIFD.

Act 1

It was attended by leading media and fashion personalities, journalists and buyers who had flown in to attend Expo Pakistan.

Act 1 of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2010 was opened by Maria B and her womenswear prêt-à-porter collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Neo Natives”. The designer drew her inspiration from ancient world cultures from Aztec to Persia to fuse a global identity for the women of today. Through this collection the designer looked to project a world that is full of love, acceptance and respect for each other’s cultures and identities. Indeed “Neo Natives” speak for the urban women of today, world travellers confident in their identities and capabilities. Talking about her brand and collection, the designer said, “It is Internationally relevant and affordable fashion for the modern Pakistani woman”. Renowned television host Shaista Wahidi and designers Yousaf Bashir Qureshi and Rizwanullah walked the ramp for the designer.

Act 1’s second show belonged to the debut collection of young designer Zonia. Her menswear and womenswear collection was titled “Aurora Luminescence – The Glowing Murk” which was inspired by an amalgamation of two tremendous natural wonders to achieve a manmade termination in the form of experimental garments, which are a concoction of colour inspiration from Aurora waves and the silhouettes are attained by focusing on bioluminescent mushrooms which are ruffled, frill yet composed. The attributes of all garments differ in light and dark.

The collection utilised unique and unusual fabrics combined with a white luminous fabric which glowed in blue or green focusing mainly on the lustre and drape of the fabric. Garments were without any embroidery but includes soft ruffles, J shaped cut lines, layering and white piping while white trims and white glow in the dark thread. On her debut and design aesthetic the designer said ““I believe in following my own pace, my own instincts and trust that no matter what I will get it right!…my designs are for people who love details, are confident, smart and desirable”

Next on the runway was Karachi-based designer Zaheer Abbas with his womenswear collection for the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Myth”. For this collection Abbas had drawn inspiration from elements of art and architecture along with Roman sculptures influenced by ‘wet drapery’, a term used by art historians to describe cloth that appears to cling to the body in animated folds while it reveals the contours of the form beneath. Based in pure chiffon, the collection carried motifs such as pillars, vases and acanthus leaf embroidered in antique gold and copper, creating a true synthesis of inventiveness and practicality.

Zaheer Abbas’ inspirations were driven from East to West and from history to the future. For his second showing at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, Abbas went back in time; from classical statuary to modern dresses for his Spring/Summer collection. About his collection the designer said “Through the centuries, art and fashion have achieved their own transformations, Roman sculptures and their drapery is one example that creates a spectacular synthesis for which not many words are needed, the beauty speaks for itself”

Act 2

Opening for Day 1’s Act 2 was the Karachi based designer Nida Azwer with her womenswear collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Foliaceous” which drew inspiration from the textures and hues that surround her. Based in a flowy silhouette using fabrics such as cottons, linens, silks and organza, the collection marked the designers’ foray into textures where she explored the textures of fresh leaves using traditional techniques such as cutwork accentuated with lace in the earthy tones of green and blue. Speaking about her participation at the week the designer said “Fashion weeks in Pakistan gives everyone the opportunity to collectively showcase their work on a national level. I’m very happy to support it and be a part of it.”

Next on the Karachi runway was the Pakistan Institute of Fashion Design [PIFD] where six students, Farwa Zaheer, Ridah Syed, Rubab Haider, Maryam Jaleel, Asma Iqbal, Komal Afridi, Safa Tariq and Saba Ijaz showcased their indiviual pieces and capsule collections.

The first day’s finale was by designer Akif showcasing his womenswear prêt-à-porter collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, “Mast Patang”, inspired by the Pakistani kite flying festival of Basant. His collection looked to capture the joyous nature and festivity of the occasion. In this collection he harked back to his childhood memory of congested old Lahore buildings where thousands of colourful kites were being flown from every rooftop.

“Mast Patang” was worked in a variety of fabrics such as velvet, linen, chiffon, viscose and cotton and engaged a vibrant colour palette including yellows, reds and oranges symbolising the rich colours of the kites themselves, along with the colour deep blue, indeed symbolic of the colour of the night in which these kites are flown. The designer presented French styled velvet jackets, jumpsuits inspired from the Far East and striking waistcoats all fused together with traditional Pakistani embroidery to create a collection representing Pakistan and its beautiful culture as manifest within the festival of Basant, to the rest of the world.

Instructions for Hair Stylists on Pre-application and Aftercare of Luscious Locks Skin Wefts and Keratin Prebonded Extensions

Before applying skin wefts or pre-bonded extensions, always without fail insists on washing your client’s hair yourself, even if she says she has already washed it herself.  Explain to her that you must do it yourself because it must be washed with a special shampoo called a clarifying shampoo to make sure that the extensions adhere properly.

The clarifying shampoo will remove all traces of hair products like hairspray, gel, wax or conditioner so that the extensions bond well and adhere properly to the hair.  Never apply conditioner before applying extensions as this will prevent a good bond.

Wash and dry the hair before applying the extensions.

When applying the extensions you must be careful where they are applied.  Normally they must not be applied above the rounded bulbous section of the back of the head, or they will look unnatural and will show.

If the last section is placed just below the prominent section of the back of the skull, they will look far more natural because the clients own hair will give adequate cover over the top section.

They should never be applied within ¾ to 1 inch of the natural hairline or they will show.  They must be below a parting at the front by 1 inch or they will show.  Do not apply near the crown or they will show.  They will look far more natural lower down the back of the head.

Always be careful to make sure that the extensions are applied so they fall with the natural direction in which the client’s hair naturally falls and do not stand away from the scalp or your client will have a sore head.  There should never be any tension right against the scalp or your client again will have a sore head and become head sore.  You then run the risk that she will never want extensions put in again.  It is better to place them approximately ¼ inch away from the scalp, rather than right up to the scalp to relieve any tension or pressure off the scalp.

The customer must not wash her hair for at least 24 hours after the extensions have been applied to allow the glue to cure properly.

When her hair is then washed if she wishes, care must be taken to choose the correct type of product to use.  She should then NOT USE a strong clarifying shampoo because this product will not only remove all hair products and grease from the hair but it will also remove parts of the glue.  A gentle mild shampoo should now be used so it doesn’t affect the glue.

When applying conditioner never apply it to the scalp or bond of the extensions as it will remove them.  Conditioner can be applied only to the middle length and ends of the hair.

When drying never apply a hot hairdryer against the scalp or onto the bond of the extension as it will melt the glue.

 

HOME AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLIENTS AFTER HAVING SKIN WEFTS OR PRE-BONDED EXTENSIONS.

 

Please be sure to read all the following homecare instructions carefully and that you understand them, so that your extensions will last longer.  If you are unsure please ask your hairdresser for help.

 

  1. When you have just had your extensions fitted, it is essential that you DO NOT SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR FOR AT LEAST 24 HOURS AFTER BEING FITTED.  This allows the glue to cure or set properly otherwise you risk loosening your extensions.
  2. You must only use a mild shampoo and not a clarifying shampoo or again you risk loosening your extensions as a clarifying shampoo will remove the glue.
  3. Do not use hot water as this can soften the keratin bond.  Warm water is best.
  4. A conditioner should be used now but NEVER APPLIED TO THE BONDS OR GLUE OF THE SKIN WEFTS as it will loosen the bond or glue.  When applying your conditioner apply only to the mid length and ends and work through gently using your fingers like a comb to detangle you hair.
  1. Ultra violet light (sunlight) can strip colour from both your own hair and your extensions.  If your hair is going to be exposed to strong sunlight it is advisable to use a conditioner with U.V. protection built in and cover your hair if necessary.
  2. When drying your extensions with a hair dryer only use a warm temperature not a hot setting and try to avoid actually placing the heat of the dryer onto the bond or skin section of the skin wefts as this can also loosen your extensions.
  3. The sea, sand and swimming pools can also damage and alter the colour of your own hair and also your extensions.  Please use a rubber bathing cap when swimming to protect your hair.
  4. Colouring can be done on human hair extensions should it be required but must only be carried out by a qualified stylist.
  5. Your stylist should always do a test strand to see if the colouring can be done.

If the hair remains strong and accepts the colour, the colouring process can go ahead.  If the hair becomes brittle or burnt and breaks off then the product is too strong and should not be done with the product chosen.

  1. THE COMPANY WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY ANY UNQUALIFIED PERSON ATTEMPTING TO COLOUR OUR PRODUCTS.
  2. If you follow the above instructions your extension will last you longer.
  3. Thank you for using our extensions and now you can enjoy your long luxurious locks and have the hair of your dreams.

How to Apply Luscious Locks Skin Weft Extensions

Demo for application / removal and re-apply of Luscious Locks Skin Weft Extensions from Wig-O-Mania

Common questions answered:

Can I colour Luscious Locks Skin Wefts Extensions of Wig-O-Mania or get a perm?

In principle both options are possible, but require special knowledge. We use Remy hair which is first bleached and then dyed to achieve the desired colour. While bleaching or lighter colouring is not possible, darker colour washes or dying is. During a perm, in particular, it is crucial that the treatment is performed only by a specialist who understands that the extensions have already been bleached and heavily processed.

Are the splices noticeable?

The adhesive tapes for splicing are not noticeable. In some cases, directly after applying the extensions, some might feel a bit of a “pinch” for one or two days, since the hair extensions are fastened directly to the hair roots. Otherwise, the connections are so flat, flexible and soft that they meld to the head directly, and even when stroking the hair with hands, the splices cannot be felt.

How often can Luscious Locks Skin Wefts Extensions of Wig-O-Mania be reused?

The extensions can be reused approx. two or three times depending upon the level of care. The more care, the longer the hair extension remains healthy, shiny and fit for use. The splice can be cleaned and renewed without limit again and again.

Wig-O-Mania’s Products Profile:

Wig-O-Mania’s Synthetic wigs and hairpieces are made with a highly superior Japanese Kanekalon fibre that not only looks like natural European hair but also feels like natural European hair. They come in beautiful colours that never fade. This is a very versatile fibre that retains its shape after washing – as long as one follows the After-Care Instructions that come with the product. Also the fine texture of the fibre makes it a desirable choice for simulating the texture of human hair.

However the use of heated rollers, curling/straightening irons and hair dryers on these wigs is certainly not recommended as they can be permanently damaged.

Give it a quick dry and then tie it back in a ponytail and put on your hairpiece for instant glam.

The same can be said if you are at work and want to go out in the evening and haven’t got time to visit the hairdressers.  Work all day come home and pop on your Pony Tail quicker than having to do your own hair.

Hence one can curl or tong them and then straighten them again. One can therefore use heated rollers, curling/straightening irons and hair dryers on these products.

Easy fix for Frizzy Hair Extensions

Natural hair extensions аrе tһе mοѕt popular because they look and feel as natural and are so easy to wear.

There are however those occasions when like any Natural Hair, even Human Hair Extensions tend to become frizzy. This is because in principal Natural hair extensions do not have tһе advantage οf being supplied wіtһ tһе natural oils frοm tһе scalp like your own hair, and are therefore more vulnerable tο drying out аחԁ becoming frizzy.

This is not because of the quality of the Hair or the process it undergoes that is responsible for it.

Frizzy hair means that your hair needs moisture! Your hair is begging you to moisturize it!

Frizz happens when dry, porous hair sucks up moisture in the air, causing the shaft to swell. A dose of conditioner coats the hair shaft, making it harder for moisture to sink in.

One common cause for hair to become Frizzy is Humidity. Hence the use of a Leave-in Conditioner is among the first things that must be done. Fact is conditioner should be regularly used on the Hair Extensions to avoid it getting too dry or tangled. However, kindly ensure that Conditioner is not applied on the bonds – i.e. the area where your Natural Hair is bonded to the Extension. It will otherwise loosen the bond.

Another reason : Heat damage can also cause hair to look frizzy and frayed – whether they are natural or extensions.

So try some of the tips above and you should see a difference in the amount of frizz your hair has in it.
Using a moisture-enriched shampoo as opposed to a clarifying shampoo can help keep the tresses conditioned through the washing phase, as stated in Vidal Sassoon’s book.
Shampoo your hair, and then rinse with very cold water. After shampooing hair rinse your hair in the coldest water that you can to help lock in the moisture. Cold water helps close the cuticles and keep your color in so it last longer and will be shiner as well.
Be sure to rinse for several minutes before applying conditioner. After using conditioner, again rinse your hair with cold water for at least 3 minutes.
Apply a leave-in conditioner or anti-frizz serum to your damp hair
To touch up your hair, moisten your fingers with water and a small amount of conditioner. Run your fingers through your hair and smooth out the frizz.
Air dry your hair. Avoid using a blow dryer if at all possible. Blow drying your hair often can lead to damaged ends and more frizz. If you must blow dry your hair, do it only for a couple minutes after your hair is almost dry. Use a flat iron with Teflon plates to smooth your hair. Flat irons make your hair look shiny and healthy.
PS:
  • Do not use shampoos which contain alcohol. Alcohol dries your hair, leading to more frizzies.
  • Never pull or stretch the hair, especially when it is wet.
  • Comb your hair extensions regularly with a wide-toothed comb. According to “Hair Care: An Illustrated Dermatologic Handbook,” hair brushes should not be used to brush your hair extensions, as this can encourage frizz.
  • Spray hairspray onto your hair extensions the same way that you would apply it to your real hair to reduce frizz and fly-aways.
  • After a wash, let the hair air dry with as little touching as possible. Don’t play with it , brush it or dry it with a towel. This will also prevent the frizzies.
