“It’s an homage to Aubrey Hepburn,” said lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase.
Hair at Thakoon’s fall show reflected “old Hollywood glamour” and was given in a chignon-infused style.
Gilbert said she wanted an updo that was “flat on the sides, [had a] French twist in the back and a bit destroyed.” She created this look by first applying Kérastase Mousse Substantive and Lotion Densitive to add body and texture to the hair, before blow-drying. Gilbert then pulled the top sections back, and fixed it to the crown of the head. The sides of the hair were then slicked back and misted with Double Force Hairspray for hold.
After this, all the hair was gathered into a ponytail and wrapped into a French twist. The ends were pulled toward the forehead to create delicate side-swept bangs. Finally, a few pieces of the French twist were teased to create a wispy look, and the entire style was misted with Double Force Hairspray again, to lock the style in.
When asked what her favorite product used in the show was, Gilbert responded, “Hair spray, because [when creating a] chignon, you need the hair spray!”
Diane Kendal for Nars cosmetics was the lead makeup artist for Thakoon, and she wanted to keep a “minimal and modern” look. She attempted to create this by, first, prepping the face with Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, Snow Loose Powder, Concealer and pinkish and red cream blushes for a “healthy and dewy effect.”
Lips were coated with a semimatte orange-red lipstick and eyelids were enhanced with shimmery white shadows. White eyeliner was used, but kept very minimal.
“There’s no mascara, just eyelashes curled,” said Kendal. “When doing such a strong mouth, the less you do on the rest of the face, the more modern it looks. The minute you start adding an eyeliner or a mascara, it starts to look more normal. The boldness of the rest of the face makes it look very modern and young.”
“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can. I always notice that comes through,” says Felicity Jones, the global face of @shiseido-owned @cledepeaubeauteus, which launches today.
