A Spring 2014 trend was revived at Oscar de la Renta: wigs—short and choppy. Matching the hint of masculinity in the clothes (think pinstripes and leather), hair pro Orlando Pita tailored the faux strands to fit each model’s face—roughing them up with his own brand of dry shampoo. “We need to move on from the long hair thing, and I’d like to present an alternative to women,” he said. “You see [the look] on somebody like Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet and it starts to look cool—it becomes a haircut and an evening dress instead of a hairdo and an evening dress.”
Gucci Westman cited Peter Lindbergh photos of Linda Evangelista as the inspiration for the “mousy gray-brown day eye,” which she crafted with four colors of Revlon ShadowLinks: Cocoa, Chocolate, Greige, and Charcoal. The roots of the top and bottom lashes were rimmed with a charcoal pencil, and the inner and outer corners of the upper waterline were given the same treatment to make it appear as if “they’d been crying,” she said. Cheeks were gently contoured, and lips were slicked with gloss in Super Natural. “Everything disappears except for the eye,” Westman noted.
In regards to Lanvin’s Pre-Fall collection, Alber Elbaz noted that “women are looking for more reality” from their clothes. The same, however, can’t be said about their hair. Models wore choppy black and blond wigs—with Ondria Hardin sporting a platinum version for the lookbook. Oscar de la Renta also opted for faux strands, choosing a slightly more deliberate pixie style in jet black. And, not to be outdone, the guys also got in on the action at Astrid Andersen’s menswear show yesterday. She brought out the male models’ “sensitive” sides by topping off their looks with long, glossy, center-parted locks. It appears this ongoing trend doesn’t have a sexual preference.

The beauty floors at Barneys in both Manhattan and Beverly Hills got treated to major makeovers. The new “neutral” environments—which include terrazzo tiles and French-plaster walls—serve as the ideal backdrop to showcase the luxe products that line the shelves. In both locations, you’ll also find skin-care salons developed by aesthetician Mila Moursi. In addition, the Beverly Hills location boasts an exclusive La Mer treatment room, while NYC welcomes B3 Barneys Blow Bar by Valery Joseph to the foundation level. [WWD]
Lollapalooza and BronyCon (a convention celebrating all things My Little Pony) might have come to a close, but the colored-hair trend is alive and well (Chloe Nørgaard and Alison Mosshart: cases in point). While we’ve never been fans of cakey hair mascaras, messy paints, or powders, Scünci Hair Chalk is a definite game changer. The flatiron-shaped applicator allows you to slide two pieces of chalk into the device and compress a section of hair between them, leaving the pigment on your strands—not your fingertips. Set your new streak with hairspray and prepare to stage a comeback of the colorful coifs Oscar de la Renta sent down his Spring 2013 runway (a show that qualifies as one of the best and brightest spots in our backstage-beauty history).
