“Carnaby Street innocence.” That’s how hairstylist Guido Palau termed Alberta Ferretti’s Sixties-inspired slicked-back chignons that nodded in the direction of the decade’s poster girl, Twiggy.

 

The style’s low, side-swept bangs and sharp side part were molded into place using Redken’s Velvet Gelatin blow-dry lotion before being spritzed with Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray for a glossy sheen. Neat knots at the nape of the neck completed the look that — despite the artful technique involved — appeared discreetly simple.

 

Following the theme, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni for MAC Cosmetics conceived a contemporary spin on the decade’s makeup characterized by strong eyes and nude lips.

 

Skin was left bare aside from MAC’s Moisturizing Cover concealer and Prep and Prime finishing powder. Sculpt Powder was applied to the cheekbones to give them an iridescent sheen. Lips were finished with Snob, a pinky beige hue.

 

Pieroni masterminded a structured eye using a creamy taupe eye color base, Paint Pot in Groundwork under the eye and a Chromagraphic pencil in a beige tone.

 

Fake lashes were applied with Zoom Lash mascara on top and bottom lashes. An eye pencil in Coffee was used to line the outer rims and round out the look.
