Aiming for a glamorous woman with a manic side, i.e., Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Rita Hayworth, beauty at Badgley Mischka took on several roles. Hair, by Peter Gray for Moroccanoil, was a dramatic and multitextured updo, channeling the volume and shape of sculptor Umberto Boccioni with tousled texture seen on Taylor in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” To get the bold look, Gray separated hair in two sections, front and back, and created a textured French twist in the back using a blend of Moroccanoil Frizz Control and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. Hair at the front of the head was set into tight curls and when released, tresses were sculpted and shaped with a wide-tooth comb into a flowing triangular shape and secured to the top of the French twist. Makeup, by Tom Pecheux for MAC, focused on glamour with strong bold brows, green metallic shadow swept beyond corners of eyes like wings and coral matte lips. Pecheux gave each model a beauty mark as a final touch. Nails by Deborah Lippmann were polished with Glamorous Life, a smooth satin pink inspired by a rose gold Rolex, which is due in salons this winter.
