Peter Gray, working with Redken, was inspired by the Jetsons and the Fifties in creating the updos at the Badgley Mischka show Tuesday morning. He began by blow-drying Redken Aerate 08 Bodifying Cream-mousse into wet hair for extra body, then added Redken Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse to the roots layer by layer for body. Next, Gray sectioned off a triangular area of hair at the crown of the head, then pulled the remainder of the hair into a tight ponytail at the back of the head. Gray then took the sectioned-off portion of hair and back-combed it for extra lift. He added Redken’s Quick Dry Instant Finishing Spray for hold and used a needle and thread to sew the ponytail at the nape of the neck. He then wrapped the end of the ponytail clockwise up and through itself, leaving the end piece of the ponytail hanging out and pointed to the right.
“The high vertical hair is meant to counteract the plunging, scalloped necklines in the collection, and the piece of hair pointing out mimics the swept-out eyeliner in the makeup,” he noted.
Tom Pecheux, working for MAC Cosmetics, aimed to create a “sophisticated, international, iconic woman” with his makeup. “Audrey Hepburn was the inspiration for the eyebrows and the eyeliner,” Pecheux noted of the light brown penciled brow and black liquid eyeliner (“just following the shape of the eye, not too extreme”). He added plenty of black mascara and a subtle pink-gold MAC eye shadow on the lids. Skin got a light coating of shimmery bronzer, while lips were finished with a soft brownish-coral shade.
