At Marc by Marc Jacobs on Tuesday afternoon, Redken hairstylist Guido Palau did a textured updo, pulling hair up and pinning it into messy French twists, leaving bangs and some pieces flowing free. “It’s a Fifties updo with an Eighties edge,” said Palau, who added that his inspiration was Madonna in the film “Desperately Seeking Susan.”

Large bows were tied around models’ heads, so Palau wanted to “keep the textured look to offset the bows in the hair.”

In order to create the look, Palau applied a new Redken product called Aerate 08 Bodifying Cream-Mousse to damp hair and teased it at the crown of the head. He also scrunched locks with his hands and finished up the look with Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray.

“It’s [about] softening the whole shape to make it pretty, girly,” he said.

Makeup was kept simple — except for the lips, which were very bright.

“It’s a cartoony lip,” said makeup artist Dick Page, working on behalf of Shiseido. “The bow of the lip is very sharp.”

Page brushed on a Shiseido fuchsia lipstick, over which he applied a highly pigmented, bright pink powder to thicken the layered colors and create a matte finish.

“The collection is crazy bright, so there’s one little hit of punky pink color,” said Page. “The rest of the skin is fresh.”

Faces were kept bare, just a touch of base or cover-up was applied where needed and light eyebrows were filled in a bit for a natural look.
