Peter Som’s California surfer girl made a trip below 14th Street. Wella’s global creative director, Eugene Souleiman created texture with an added softness by pulling the hair back into a tousled messy bun. “There’s a lot of psychedelic prints [in the collection] and there’s some interesting proportions,” said Souleiman. “I wanted the girls to have a late-Eighties kind of feel. It’s not too traditional and it brings out the imperfections.” Using Wella’s Ocean Spritz, Souleiman liberally sprayed the roots and throughout the length of the hair. Then, he blow-dried it upwards at the root in a circular motion to create volume. Souleiman pulled it back into a ponytail at the middle of the back of the head and twisted the hair and tied it into a knot. Again, he sprayed the hair with Ocean Spritz while blow-drying to create more texture. Souleiman pulled out of few pieces of hair creating a loose effect. To complete the look, he used a dime-size drop of Oil Reflections and put it on the roots of the hair for a shiny finish.
“It’s a very nude face,” said, Tom Pecheux, lead makeup artist for Mac. “Peter wanted something very fresh and kind of raw.” Pecheux didn’t apply any heavy coverage, but made it very monochromatic. He used his fingers to apply Pleasure Model Blush to the apple of the cheek as well as under the cheekbone to add contour. The eyes were treated with brown mascara, and Pleasure Model Blush was swept under the eye close to the lower lash line. Brows were brushed up to create a masculine vibe. To finish, the lips were topped with Ray of Sunshine Gloss. After explaining the makeup Pecheux bluntly admitted, “I love women, but I don’t want them to look like clowns.”
The Nails were finished with an inverted French manicure using Zoya’s new Green and Island Blue.
