“She’s a woman who has a mani and a pedi but hates the hairdresser,” said hairstylist Malcolm Edwards, who was working with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.art backstage at Amanda Wakeley. “Everything else is flawless and impeccable, but there’s a rock chick ease to the hair.”
Edwards interpreted that mood with a low side parting and slightly wavy locks. Using a combination of Tecni.art Color Show Volume Mousse, Color Show Liss Cream and Pli, he dried and tonged hair into haphazard waves. Hair was twisted into coils, which were taken down before models took to the catwalk. The coif was finished with Infinium hairspray. “It’s casual high maintenance,” said Edwards.
Makeup artist Kelly Cornwell, working backstage with Nars, also aimed for a seemingly effortless look. “We wanted the girls to look really cool,” she said. Eyes, which were accentuated using black eyeliner smudged with Vaseline, were the focus. With a dewy complexion as a base, she used Nars The Multiple in Copacabana to give skin a glow, while lips were colored with a lip pencil in Belle de Jour and a smidge of Vaseline.
