With wet, undone hair and loads of eyeliner, it could be expected that the inspiration would be grit and grunge for the Mulberry Spring 2014 beauty look. Instead, lead hairstylist Sam McKnight opted to point to lived-in and slept-in as his main adjectives for the hair and makeup, which looked gorgeous paired with the floral, feminine collection. Totally tousled strands were swept across models' faces in a deep side part after being doused in Frederic Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturising Spray for body. As for the makeup, the emphasis was on eyeliner. Inky black framed models' eyes in a Twiggy-esque fashion, while face and lips were kept neutral.
One of the perks of an early morning show is that the model's come in with clean hair. For the Proenza Schouler presentation, lead hairstylist Paul Hanlon embraced the hair's natural texture to create a skater chic, California girl look. He let the flyaways near the crown and front remain but added Fekkai Glossing Conditioner as a leave-in at the ends for a weighed-down and separated appearance.
The makeup look was bare bones. In fact, the only thing you'll need to re-create the look is MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Pleasure Chest (coming in Spring). Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal used her fingers to apply the powder for the lightest application. Honey rounded out the beauty look with a manicure using Mac Cosmetics' nail polish in Delicate ($22).
Achieving those highly covetable beach waves doesn't mean you have to head to the ocean. It doesn't mean you have to break out the curling iron or store-bought texturising spray, either. Fabrice Gili, creative director of Frédéric Fekkai SoHo, divulged his quick and easy recipe for carefree waves that requires only three ingredients (all of which you probably have sitting around at home).
- Step 1: Take an empty and clean spray bottle and fill it up with 230g of water.
- Step 2: Add two heaping tablespoons of kosher or sea salt to the water and shake.
- Step 3: Mix a teaspoon of your favourite hair gel to the saltwater solution and shake it once again. This will give hair a little bit more texture.
- Step 4: Spray a generous amount onto wet or very damp hair and do not brush through; finger-comb only, if necessary. Scrunch hair in your hands to help curls form, or just leave it be and let it air dry naturally.
1. Adir applied Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to damp hair.
2. Then using the arch of the brow as a guide, he created a deep side part.
3. Diane's hair was blown out with a large round brush and tucked behind the ears.
4. To get the two-textured look, Abergel applied Brilliant Glossing Cream ($38) on top of the hair, leaving the ends more voluminous with a spritz of hairspray to finish. 5. Diane's polished hair was accented with starburst earrings and stand out lashes.
Done up in ruddy-hued lips and strands styled with just a touch of texture, the models at 3.1 Phillip Lim were urban girls with a bit of an edge. And in order to capture that sexy, naughty, dangerous vibe, Frédéric Fekkai lead stylist Paul Hanlon ensured models' hair texture was not too precise. But it was a reddish-brown lip look, conceptualised by makeup artist Francelle Daly for Nars, which really brought this down-town girl notion to life. All that was missing? A rocker boyfriend.
From faux-fur vests to leopard-print anything, Rachel Zoe always seems to find a way to make just about any piece of clothing or accessory look covetable. And when it comes to her hair, it's the same story. At her Zoe Media Group launch party last night, Rachel combined two trends — braids and ponytails — into one style. To recreate the look yourself, start by applying a wave-enhancing product, such as Frédéric Fekkai Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave Spray ($46) onto damp hair. Finger-dry with a hairdryer and touch up with a curling tong as needed.
Next, deep-part the hair to one side. French-braid starting on the smaller side of the part, following the curve of the head. Once you reach the opposite side, secure with an elastic. Now French-braid starting at the heavy side of the part, stopping where the first braid ends. Join the two together with a large elastic and wrap a section of hair around the base to finish. Bananas.
If it were possible, Kate Middleton's locks are looking more lustrous and glossy than ever. She and Prince William attended a Gary Barlow Concert at the Royal Albert Hall where she sported her signature bouncy blow-dry teamed with a natural makeup look with a hint of pink blush. Even if you feel like you may lack in length or thickness, you can still emulate her high-shine hair with our top five glossing serums. Check out her look from all angles, then get shopping!
From the Spring '11 runways to the strands on a slew of celebs (think: Gossip Girl's Blake Lively), tousled beach waves are a foolproof style for Summer — and the good news is you need just one product to recreate the look at home if you don't fancy an ocean dip. Adding sea salt spray to hair instantly adds texture and body without weighing it down, leaving you with sexy, natural-looking waves to leave loose and flowing or to tie up in fuss-free ponytail.
We're on the fast track towards the holiday season, so we're on the hunt for celebrity hair and makeup looks to steal for the lineup of Christmas parties and functions in the coming weeks! On the hair front we're turning to Gossip Girl's Blake Lively, who rocked the perfect tousled ponytail on the red carpet and makeup-wise, Chloë Moretz chose a standout berry lip for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards. Walk this way to check out this week's Final Five edit!
Adir began by building texture, applying Frédéric Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel ($23.10) to the roots. He then used Fekkai Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave Spray ($46) throughout the rest of the hair, rough drying it to create a beachy base.
Then taking random sections, Adir created standard plaits, fishtail braids and twists throughout the hair, making sure to leave the top section loose. He then took all of the hair, save for the loose hair at the top, and knotted and twisted it, securing with bobby pins, to create an up 'do.
To finish, Adir backcombed the front section to add volume, before pinning it back into place. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($26.30).
