By Karen Kwan Ever wonder how those fantastic runway hair styles come to be? I chatted with Denis Binet, creative director for hair for Montreal Fashion Week and Pantene Pro-V consulting stylist, as he was prepping for the David Dixon show. “I ask the fashion designer where, for the 17 minutes of their show, do they want their audience to go,” says Binet. “Is it the future? The street? The office? Is it 5 a.m. or midnight? Who’s their muse? What type of music will the show have? Will the models be smiling or looking serious? And what type of light will the runway have?”
