Colored Hair Streaks Look To Be A Season-Spanner
“Equestrian, but super hip and cool, not stuffy,” is how hairstylist Ted Gibson for Beauty.com described his inspiration backstage at Vena Cava this morning, where he gathered models’ hair into low ponytails that looked primed for riding helmets. Floppy, wide-brimmed hats more Soho than Saratoga Springs were the headgear of choice on Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock’s runway, however, which explains the “urban” touches Gibson added to his coifs, namely Streekers temporary hair color in purple, pink, and green; and Velcro leather cuffs in place of plain old hair bands. Makeup artist Lloyd Simmonds abided by a similar theme, creating a sun-kissed flush on models’ faces as though they’d been out frolicking in the country. He dabbed MAC Pro Cream Colour Base in Orange Alarm onto the apples of their cheeks for a warm flush and topped two neutral shimmer shades in Antiqued Gold and Mid-tone Sepia with some targeted face gloss for added shine on eyelids and cheekbones. As for that red lip, it’s all about the MAC Pro Lipmix. An incredibly saturated tube formula, it allows for total color opacity and a surprising amount of control; Simmonds didn’t even need to use a liner to keep those crimson pouts perfectly precise.
