Hair for Cristian Siriano’s spring showcase matched the multicultural feel of his line. “I wanted to create a giraffelike neck,” said Antoinette Beenders, who styled hair for Aveda. After pulling it back into a high, tight ponytail, Beenders infused micro crimps into hair for structure. She then twisted it into a “tribal bun, ” using bobby pins and Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray for hold. Finally, Beenders applied Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine into the bristles of Aveda’s Uruku Bronzing Brush and “painted” the sides of the style for a high-shine finish.

Makeup, done by Polly Osmond for Victoria’s Secret, was “nomadic” and windswept. “We created a red bronze burnt cheek and used a dark brown shadow on the upper eyelid,” said Osmond, who finished by adding a clear gloss atop the warm eye color.

Lips were coated in a pale gloss and mascara was used on top lashes. “These are dark summer colors,” said Osmond. “This is a girl who goes from place to place, from festival to festival. She is free spirited.”
