Flower Child: Supersize Your Coachella Crown

-------

NEW YORK ACADEMY OF ARTS "TriBeCa Ball" Presented by Van Cleef & Arpels

If you’re lucky enough to be soaking up some Coachella sun right now, we’re going to assume you’ve already seen your fair share of flower crowns—they’ve become something of a music festival staple. While we’ve been on board with the trend ever since Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda presentation, the models at this week’s Tribeca Ball took the idea to new heights. Their larger-than-life blooms (both real and silk) have us dreaming about over-the-top DIY varieties for Coachella and beyond. (We’re thinking peonies, roses, and hydrangeas would work nicely.) The added bonus? An oversize arrangement means you don’t have to worry about your hair underneath.

The Poster Girl For Curl Perfection

-------


We asked this nutritionist/part-time model what she used to keep her gorgeous curls full without the frizz, and she told us that she couldn’t reveal her shampoo sources, you know, because of the big beauty campaign she has out right now, obviously. However, she was willing to dole out this little tip: olive oil. “I use it before I go to sleep at night and tie my hair up,” she says. “Then, when I wake up, it’s easy to manage.” She also credits washing her hair only once a week and conditioning every day for her enviable locks. And then there’s her good genes, of course.

For Love Of Anime, and Manic Panic

This graphic designer blames a post-private-school rebellion for her near-constant color streaks. “I’ve had them since I was 15,” she says, adding that she always tries to “dress them up” a bit to really celebrate her no-dress-code freedom (when we spotted her she was in the throes of a 1940s-victory-rolls-with-floral-adornments phase). As for the specific teal blue color choice, that comes from a different childhood preoccupation that the 29-year-old just can’t seem to shake. “I’ve always sort of wanted to be an anime character,” she admits.

The Bowl Cut, In Reprise

-------


When we spotted this 27-year-old in Bryant Park last week, we were obviously transfixed by her daring embrace of the Mary Stuart Masterson-in-Some Kind of Wonderful shaved-back, full-top crop—and even more hypnotized by how well she was pulling it off. Then she revealed the truth behind her successful late-eighties, early-nineties revival effort. “I’m actually a hairstylist,” she divulged. “I just wanted something fun that was a little eighties but also a little modern.” Mission accomplished.

The Perks (And Pitfalls) Of The Beauty Biz

Sure, there’s the free products and the insider tips that come along with working in the industry (that’s navy blue liner this beauty editor is wearing, not your standard old black—”it makes your eyes look whiter,” she informed us). But when cosmetics companies discontinue products, even the privileged suffer. “I have to cherish every application,” the editor exclaimed of her L’Oréal Colour Riche limited-edition lipstick in Target Red, which is sadly no longer available. It’s a real shame, too—she certainly wears it well.
