Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman, referencing Helmut Newton, did what he called a “masculine, chic and sexy” look for GHD at Bill Blass Thursday afternoon. He pulled hair tightly back into a ponytail, leaving a section loose, which he then twisted up into an off-center crest. He then combined the twisted section with the ponytail, wrapping both into a tight bun at the back of the head.
“It’s something with a foot in the Parisian past and a twist that makes it modern,” he said, adding, “I’ve seen enough dry, messy hair all week. I wanted to do something tight, clean and graphic.”
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux, who was working on behalf of MAC Cosmetics at Bill Blass, said the look he created was very, chic, colorful and glam-rock. Think Bianca Jagger or Blondie.”Pecheux kept the skin matte and pale and the lip nude, but framed the eyes with black shadow. He then applied a metallic, shimmery plum shade, carrying it out under the brow. Perhaps the most dramatic effect, however, was a “strong” mix of pink and orange shades to create a hue that went from above the brow to the top of the cheek and across the temple.
