MILAN — Dolce & Gabbana’s dual collection themes — androgyny and glam-rock — required contrasting hairstyles. “The men’s look is inspired by cool geezers, and the women Sicilian femme fatales,” hairstylist Guido Palau said backstage.
To create the feminine style, Palau first tied loose sections of hair into delicate chignons at the nape of the neck. Individual tendrils were then coaxed loose, before being pinned to form soft waves at the side of the face.
Palau scuplted the masculine-looking updos by prepping hair with lots of Redken’s Super Strong 016 Hardware Gel, before pulling locks into a side parting, and then rolling into tight pleats. Tendrils at the side of the face were molded into sideburns and bangs into messy quiffs.
“It’s all about the eyebrows and eyes,” said makeup artist Pat McGrath, smudging Dolce & Gabbana Cosmetic’s Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Quad around model’s eyes in shades of brown. Top lashes only were coated in black mascara.
She layered a warm blush over a matt base from Dolce & Gabbana’s Perfect Finish Powder Foundation and tinged lips pink with Classic Cream Lipstick in Dramatic.
