Figo Salon at New York Fashion Week

Figo Salon co-owner and Glamorous Mom,  Kristina Marra, worked back stage at New York Fashion Week back in September, providing hair design and styles that accentuated the Spring 2012 runway looks.  Kristina was joined by her husband and co-owner of Figo Salon, Rino Marra, Josh Genung and Kerastase TECH,  Nina Dimachki.   The Figo team attended New York Fashion Week for seven full days and worked along side some of the best hair stylists in the country.  To no surprise, the Figo Salon was the only Michigan salon that worked the shows.

Kristina and her team provided hair designs for Thakoon, Jason Wu, Jill Stuarte, Rodarte, ADAM, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Monique Lhullier and Theyskens’ Theory.  The team’s hair styles could be seen on the actual runway and were styled to match the over all looks of the designer’s Spring 2012 collections.

“Theory was my favorite”, says Kristina.  The hair at the Theory show was down and wavy with a straight part down the middle.  The hair was very ruffled and textured, very beachy and was created only with fingers.  Brushes and combs were not used to create the sexy look.  Monique Lhullier runway hair was very classic and sleek.  The models wore high ponytails that were teased to give movement.

“Many of the shows had ready to wear hair.”  ” The styles that were created are easily transferrable from day to night and perfectly resembled the Midwestern market.” – Kristina Marra


The Figo Team used Kerastase products including a new product called Fibre Architecte.  Fibre Architecte is a heat and seal product that is heat activated.  “It’s great for turning over processed hair new again”, explains Kristina. Fibre Architecte will be available to purchase at Figo Salon at the end of October.


Figo Salon is located at 265 N. Old Woodward, Birmingham, Mi.
