Couldn’t make the New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 shows? No problem, we have the how-to straight from the hairstylists and makeup artists, so you can achieve the same looks.
Yee’s collection, which is entitled “Resurgence” was inspired by urban Detroit’s current crumbling economic state, combined with an appreciation for the survivalist spirit of the city as it moves towards a transformation. Hairstylist Allen Ruiz used Aveda products to create what he referred to as “urban street style colliding with shiny, modern elegance.”
1. Ruiz misted dry hair with Aveda Pure Abundance™ Style Prep™ and blow-dried straight with a round brush. This helped add the texture and grip needed to create this look.
2. He separated out 3 sections of hair (left, middle, right) and prepped the 2 side sections with Aveda Phomollient™ Styling Foam to ensure a clean look that added shine without build up or weight.
3. Then he carefully gathered hair from the temple and formed a tight, delicate braid down to the nape of the neck.
4. He secured this with a clear hair tie.
5. Ruiz repeated on the other side and tied both sections together at the nape of the neck.
6. He gathered the top half of the middle section of hair and begin roll and pin into a structured twist that kisses the braid just behind the ear.
7. Then he flat-ironed the remainder of hair to fall over the shoulders and clear hair tie.
8. He used Aveda Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray to smoothe hair into place for a firm, long lasting hold.
9. He completed the look with a fine mist of Aveda Brilliant Spray on Shine™ to eliminate flyaways.
Inspired by photographer Jacque Henri Lartigue and this season’s collection, runway stylist Peter Gray created unique 20’s and 30’s nuanced looks with a clear modern vision.
1. He started with a small hidden horizontal braid at the nape of the neck to serve as a base for pinning the rolled hair in place.
2. Then he applied a small amount of Moroccanoil Treatment Light from mid length to the ends, and followed with the Moroccanoil Root Boost sprayed in and combed through section by section. He used the Moroccanoil Root Boost to push the hair away from the scalp to ensure a three dimensional wave. It creates a semi-matte look and helps to create texture on the ends.
3. After rough drying the hair, he used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong and set the hair using a 1-1/2” curling iron from the nape to above the ear and pinned the curls vertically in opposite directions to create a soft textured movement. The hair through the front and sides was set vertically in the same direction and clipped.
4. He combed out each section followed by a skinny brush, to create a smooth, glossy surface through the top and front wave area.
5. Gray rolled the hair lengths into a small, loose horizontal roll at the nape of the neck and used u-pins to attach the length of roll to the braided base underneath.
6. He sprayed a bit of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray on his palms and applied it to the surface of the hair for a glossy finish on the top and sides.
Sexy Hair worked directly with Ronson and her team to develop a group of hairstyles inspired by “the Parisian girl in New York.”
1. Starting with dry hair, they sprayed hair with Style Sexy Hair Spray Clay to enhance hair’s natural texture and to determine the hair’s natural body. If hair was fine, they added Big Sexy Hair Powder Play to increase body.
2. Then they made a deep side part to the right side to create heavier volume.
3. Using a 1.25” barrel curling iron, they lightly twisted large sections of hair and wrapped around the iron to create a natural texture.
4. They made sure sections did not overlap and stopped four inches from the scalp. They held this for five seconds; then released. To achieve the desired look, each curl went in a different direction.
5. On the heavier side of the part, they used a flat iron to curl hair towards the face to create an extremely soft “S” wave and secured in front of the ear with a contrasting color hair pin.
6. They set the look with a misting of Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Hair Spray.
This collection, which features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues was inspired by Siriano’s recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette. “I wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic,” he said. “Like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.” Makeup artist Polly Osmond went with the theme by playing up luminous skin, pale lids and orange coral lips.
1. She first prepped skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, which is infused with botanical oils.
2. Then she applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer for a luminous complexion.
3. She concealed dark circles and imperfections with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer.
4. To create a multi-dimensional glow, she applied all three shades from the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to the cheeks using a circular motion.
5. She dabbed Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum onto the apples of the cheeks for a hint of tropical sheen.
6. Osmond then applied the Incandescent shade from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette all over the eye lids.
7. Then she applied the shimmering Shell shade from Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette to the inner corner of the eyes.
8. She also used the same shade to create a diffused liner along the top and bottom of the lash lines.
9. She finished with a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.
10. Using a small amount of Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, she brushed this onto brows to create definition and a little shine.
11. Osmond prepped lips earlier with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration.
12. She then applied Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse, an orange coral shade, to the lips.
13. She completed the look by creating a diffused pout by softening the outline of the lips with a lip brush.
Antonio Corral Calero, who created the hairstyles for Delpozo said he was inspired by the “brilliant rounded shapes, lines and movement of Delpozo’s designs, and wanted to interpret and bring them into the hair.”
1. He applied Moroccanoil Treatment to dry hair from mid-length to ends.
2. Then he made a strong middle part and flat-ironed hair from roots to ends so the hair was completely straight and flat.
3. Next, he lifted most of the hair, leaving about 2” on the nape of the neck and made a small ponytail.
4. He placed an elastic band at the root to offer support for the lift to come.
5. Calero then brought all the hair back down.
6. Starting at the back of the crown, he backcombed hair from middle to ends until 4” above the ponytail.
7. The teasing, especially mid-back, created a kind of “nest” above the ponytail.
8. Then he gently combed over the surface of the hair, smoothing the rounded shapes.
9. He did an occasional touch up with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium (on the comb) when he saw any flyaways on the center part.
10. To complete the look, he brought the rest of the hair back and made a second ponytail above the first.
11. He then strengthened the generous rounded shapes by pushing the second ponytail upwards to create more volume and support, and secured them with bobby pins.
ELIZABETH & JAMES
Celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen created a fresh yet sophisticated look that was inspired by a woman who is effortlessly chic.
1. First, she prepped skin by using a foundation brush and her finger, applying a thin layer of Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation only on areas that needed coverage.
2. To create a natural dewiness, she went back over the foundation with a wet sponge.
3. To give skin a radiant glow, she highlighted the cheeks, brow bone and nose by swiping these areas with Avon Smooth Minerals Powder Foundation in Transparent Glow.
4. To keep cheeks looking dewy and fresh, she applied Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Carnation, a blushing pink shade, on the apples of cheeks.
5. Anderson then applied a light wash of shadow with Avon True Color Eye Shadow Duo in Healthy Glow.
6. She applied the lighter shade to the inner eyes and across the lid and blended the darker shade very lightly along the lash line.
7. Then she lightly lined eyes for a “just-defined look” with Avon’s Kohl Eye Liner in Intense Brown.
8. She gave lashes volume and definition with Avon Mega Effects Mascara.
9. Anderson completed the look by matching the lip color to the shade used on the cheeks.
10. She applied Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Carnation to the center of the lips with her finger and then blotted it out to give the pout a natural-yet-noticeable stain effect.
Lead Stylist Paul Hanlon created the look which was inspired by Helmut Lang’s designs, which were a nod back to the 90’s. “I wanted the hair to have strong, clean lines to balance the baggier clothes. It is a bit masculine, but chic, and refined,” he said.
1. First, he applied UNITE 7Seconds Condition before blow-drying hair with a paddle brush for pin-straight locks.
2. Then he used UNITE Session Whip, a weightless mousse that gave hair girth, but not hold (like a gel would). He applied the mousse liberally from roots to ends and continued to blow-dry the product into the hair until it was completely dry.
3. To create the distinct part, he used a rattail comb to perfectly section off the hair to the side, continuing to blow-dry the hair straight down.
4. Hanlon took 2-inch sections of hair and sprayed the roots of each one with the UNITE Max Control Hairspray. As with the previous steps, he continued to use a blow dryer to set the hair.
5. He then pulled hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secured it with an elastic band.
6. Then he wrapped a black leather hair accessory around it.
7. For an effortless, natural look, he pulled out some of the baby hairs.
Runway stylist Antonio Corral Caleros said his inspiration “was a sophisticated urban girl on the go – free-spirited, secure, and confident” for the KaufmanFranco show.
1. He mixed a cocktail of Moroccanoil Treatment with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, which he applied on wet hair from mid-length to ends. This was to make hair smooth and shiny.
2. Starting at the nape, he blow-dried hair using the Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Round Brush, creating fullness and lift at the roots. He directed hair at the top and sides away from the face, and added extra bend to the ends.
3. He sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium on the brush and smoothed down the sides of the hair.
4. Calero brushed and gathered the entire length of the hair at the nape of the neck, gripped the pony with his left hand and pushed the rest of the hair upwards to create volume and a rounded shape. At the same time, he used his right hand to lift and release small flyaways and loosen the hair above the pony, while the hair on top remained rounded and smooth.
5. After tying the ponytail and wrapping a few strands around its base, he put on stretchy black headbands created by the designers at the hairline (freeing the earlobes).
6. He finished off with a light misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray.
Runway stylist Bob Recine created minimal, sculpted, geometric looks with contrasting seasonal textures of wet and dry. According to Lhuillier, the inspiration for this collection “was about sheer elegance through the use of bright bold colors in clean and modern silhouettes with feminine details.”
1. First, he sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium throughout the hair in 2” sections at a time.
2. He then used a flat iron over each section to give it added smoothness and shine with hold.
3. Combing the hair forward toward the face from the ears up only, he applied Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse from root to mid-length in small 1” sections, making sure hair was well saturated.
4. Then he applied Moroccanoil Styling Gel about 2” from root to mid-length, and then combed everything back down and into place for the wet part of the look.
5. To contrast this wet texture on the top part of the style, the rest of the hair was left dry and brushed down to cascade down the back. He used a Moroccanoil XLPRO Paddle Brush to smooth it straight to keep a geometric look.
6. He finished with a spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong to hold the entire look in place and to highlight its diamond-like, reflective shine.
Runway stylist Paul Hanlon was inspired by the confident, naturally beautiful woman of today with a subtle nuance of 1940’s award-winning Italian film actress Monica Vitti, creating luxurious, softly textured looks that were free-flowing, modern and contemporary.
1. To protect hair from the blow-dryer’s heat, he applied Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection from mid length to ends.
2. Next, he applied a generous amount of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse for added body with medium hold, and then brushed it through the hair.
3. He took oversized sections using a large Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Round Brush, and blow dried. This was almost like a salon blow dry but he wanted to achieve only a bit of volume with substantial shine while rolling in the ends. The oversized sections created movement without using irons or tools.
4. When he finished, he sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the side part to make sure all baby hairs lay flat.
5. Hanlon clipped down the sides to take some of the volume out and sprayed the top area again for hold and shine.
6. Finally, he applied 1-2 drops of Moroccanoil Treatment Light from mid-length to ends, rubbing it in his palm and in between his fingers and combing through the entire look.
This collection which was designed by Oskar Metsavaht was inspired by the cut, color, vibrancy and transparency of gemstones. Hairstylist Antoinette Beenders created a sleek high performance ponytail for the show saying, “When a gemstone is in the light, only one side of it shines at a time. We recreated that by making just one side of the hair super shiny,” Beenders said. “The collection also features a lot of v-shapes in the necklines, which we recreated in the shape of the hair in the back. It’s a very luxurious collection, so we wanted the hair to be luxurious as well.”
1. First, she prepped hair with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother™ and blow-dried it straight with a round brush.
2. She then flat-ironed hair in sections, beginning at the back of the head and moving forward.
3. She sprayed a light coat of Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray to each section before ironing to ensure a sleek, totally straight finish.
4. Then she parted hair across the crown of the head, creating two sections.
5. She gathered the bottom section into a ponytail at the nape of the neck and secured with elastic.
6. She Parted the top section of hair on the right side of the head at a slight diagonal, creating two sections of hair.
7. Anderson then separated a small section of hair from the back of the right section with a fine tooth comb.
8. She saturated each section with Aveda Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray and combed back toward the nape of the neck, tightly to the head.
9. She layered each section over the previous to create a sleek, smooth side.
10. Then she gathered this section at the nape and crossed over the top of the ponytail and clip.
11. She repeated the process on the left section, but coated each section of hair with Air Control™ Hair Spray for a softer, contrasting texture.
12. She gathered the left section and crossed over the ponytail.
13. Anderson released the right side, wrapping ends under the ponytail and tied into a knot.
14. She secured with hair pins.
15. Then she used a flat iron to flatten any loose ends to create a sleek, cohesive ponytail.
16. Using a color brush, she painted the right side of the hair with a generous layer of Brilliant™ Retexturing Gel to create a liquid effect.
Runway stylist Antonio Corral Calero created soft textured, ethereal hair that was inspired by windswept safari days and subtle tribal details.
1. He started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment to dry hair which gave him more traction and grip for the other products that followed.
2. Then he sprayed Moroccanoil Root Boost at the roots starting at the nape, and working up.
3. Calero warmed a bit of Moroccanoil Molding Cream between his fingers, and then worked it in from roots to ends.
4. Then he blow-dried hair from underneath and lifted hair at the roots using his fingers, letting it dance and tangle under the air flow. It was important not to pull or try to control the hair.
5. When almost dry and with the model’s head bent over, he finger-massaged hair at the root and lifted it again to intensify the tangled texture.
6. He then sectioned hair from ear to ear and pinned it up while he created a braid with remaining strands at the nape of the neck.
7. He released the top hair and then tucked different parts of the various strands into the braid like macramé and blended them in waves, creating a loose, inverse-pyramid shape that was wider on top.
8. Then he softly rotated his palm over the hair to make it lie naturally – creating more flyaways at the top.
9. To add a tribal vibe, he made several little braids placed randomly at the sides.
10. Finally, he took little baby hairs around the hairline and pulled them out – so they would also move as models walked the runway.
Stylist Odile Gilbert was inspired by the texture and pattern of the tweed fabrics used in the collection.
1. She first applied Frizz-Ease® Hair Serum to wet hair.
2. With the hair still wet, she ran Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse through to build texture to the front of the hair.
3. After blow drying the hair, she used a large barrel curling iron to create a wave to the front section.
4. Gilbert created a severe side part to reveal the tweed textured hair and pinned it to the side in the back.
5. Taking the remaining sections of hair from both sides, she brought them together and pinned to create the twisted look.
6. For long lasting hold, she applied Frizz-Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray.
Makeup artist Janell Geason, who created the look for the show using Aveda went for a modern and easygoing look. “We all wish we woke up looking this way. She is flawless without looking like she has a lot of makeup on,” Geason said.
1. She created a flawless-looking complexion with a semi-matte finish by applying Aveda Inner Light™ Concealer with a medium eye color brush as needed.
2. She blended into the skin with a blush brush.
3. Using her ring finger, she pressed Aveda Petal Essence™ Eye Color in Burnished Bronze onto the eyelid to add a slight sheen, blending well to remove harsh lines.
4. Then she dabbed Aveda Petal Essence™ Eye Color in Peony Blush to the center of the lid to open the eye.
5. To highlight brows without being overdone, she scraped a bit of Aveda Petal Essence™ Eye Definer in Cacao onto a spool and brushed through the brow.
6. Geason curled lashes and applied one coat of Aveda Mosscara™ for definition, brushing out any clumps.
7. She then set makeup and reduced extra shine by lightly applying Aveda Inner Light™ Mineral Loose Powder over the t-zone and other shiny areas with Aveda Uruku Bronzing Brush.
7. She added color by applying a light dusting of Aveda Petal Essence™ Face Accents in Tesserae or Peach Lights to the apples of the cheeks.
8. To create a natural looking stain effect, she pressed Aveda Nourish-Mint™ Sheer Mineral Lip Color in Sheer Muscadine onto the lips.
9. She dabbed Nourish-mint™ Rehydrating Lip Glaze in Rose Copper to the middle of the lip only to add dimension.
Hairstylist Jon Reyman created soft, gentle waves using Aveda products. “This look has a subtle attitude. It’s loose and tousled, cool and casual,” he said.
1. He blow-dried hair with a Mason Pearson brush to create a very full tousled look.
2. Then he applied Aveda Volumizing Tonic™ at the root of the hair for light hold and a little shine.
3. He dried hair flat at the roots.
4. He added Aveda Pure Abundance™ Hair Potion throughout the hair to naturally bulk up and thicken hair.
5. Reyman created varied, natural looking waves throughout the hair by rolling sections of hair around two fingers and setting the curl with a flat iron.
6. He then added movement by creating bends in the hair with the flat iron.
7. He completed the look by spraying Finish with Aveda Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray to smooth flyaways and set waves.
