Girls With Curls, Backstage at Bottega Veneta

-------

Tomas Maier is the kind of designer who is incredibly particular about all facets of his collections, which is to say every inch of a Bottega Veneta show is carefully considered—hair and makeup included. “He really wanted a hairstyle,” Guido Palau said of the soft, seventies-meets-forties, “Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver” curls he obliged Maier with for Fall.

Cleaning hair with Redken Curvaceous Shampoo and Conditioner so it was light and airy, Palau rough-dried strands with its Guts 10 Volumizing Spray Foam mousse to add texture, before creating a deep side part and tightly coiling one-inch sections, which had been prepped with Redken’s Iron Shape 11 Finishing Thermal Spray, around a thirteen-millimeter iron. Then, just before the show started, Palau loosely spread out the curls with a boar-bristle brush, slipping a single bobby pin above the right ear.

Maier was equally specific about models’ “matte, matte, ultra lip,” as makeup artist Pat McGrath referred to the burnt-orange-brown pigment that she painted onto pouts. “We did look at fabrics [from the collection] for that,” she elaborated of the custom color. Dusting a brown-black eye shadow on the tops of lids and underneath the lower lash lines—”Just to give a little sexiness”—McGrath finished the look with a light-handed application of brown mascara.
