Inspired by the past, Jeanie Syfu for Tresemmé created a very airy and feminine style for Nanette Lepore. “It’s kind of a new take on the beachy wave,” said Syfu. “But we’re creating it with an elastic.” To achieve the lax look, Syfu began by applying 24-Hour Body Mousse throughout wet hair and blow-dried it on a high heat with a boar-bristle brush. Starting from the nape of the neck up to the ear level, she took random sections, teased the length of the hair, folded them into a zigzag pattern, leaving the ends out and tied it with an elastic. Then, Syfu sprayed the hair lightly with 24-Hour Body Finishing Spray and diffused it. After sending the models to makeup, she undid the elastics and brushed out the hair for added texture. To keep it matte, she finished with Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo. “The collection has a lot of pastels, soft fabrics and florals,” said Syfu. “We wanted to balance the softness of the collection with a little edgy hair.”
Coinciding with the hair, James Kaliardos for MAC Cosmetics fashioned a youthful, starry-eyed appearance. “We’re bringing in the romantic girl,” said Kaliardos. “She’s quite simple.” Kaliardos applied BB Crème to keep the skin neutral and sculpted the eye socket and brows. “I told the makeup artists to think of it like rolling hills that are velvety,” said Kaliardos. “Opposed to a glittery sea.” To finish, he topped the lip with an orangey red chubby pencil called Lovers Lane. “It’s about softness,” said Kaliardos.
Michelle Saunders working with Essie applied two coats of a white shade called Blanc to the nails and toes with the Good to Go Topcoat. “When you do a white manicure and white pedicure, it’s very youthful,” said Saunders. “[Nanette Lepore] actually consulted her daughter, who’s 15 and said, ‘what do you think we should do for the nails?’ And, of course, she said white.”
