“This is not a hairstyle, it’s more of a hair texture or effect,” Paul Hanlon of Toni&Guy of the almost waist-length tresses he created using 24- and 26-inch extensions. “It’s about weak, broken, skinny lank hair; a little bit gothic.”
Hanlon used leave-in conditioner and relaxing balm to weigh the hair down, braided it, and then heated to give a slight crimped effect.
Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni created a Goth–inspired look using MAC products. She used Strobe Cream to brighten cheeks, blended Stormy Pink and Constructivist colors on and under the eyes for a bruised,”slightly dead” look, and eschewed blush, mascara and curled eyelashes.
Prunella eye pencil was used to rim eyes for extra definition, while a mix of concealer and lip balm muted the lips. Marian Newman used a white nail pencil under the nails and two coats of topcoat for a plastic–looking shine.
