NYFW - Best of the Beautiful for 2013 - Hair & Makeup

Anna Sui

CoverGirl makeup artist Pat McGrath gave models strong ‘60s cat-eyes for the Anna Sui show. With a black pencil, she drew a graphic line along the top lashline, increasing the width as she worked her way outwards. Then, with the same black pencil, she dotted along the bottom lashline to give the look movement.

Tory Burch

Models at Tory Burch had a sweet, pinkish glow courtesy of makeup artist Diane Kendal, who worked a creamy shadow from lashline to crease for a slight contour. She used a rosy eye shadow to warm up the cheeks, and patted lips with a blush-toned lipstick for a healthy nude finish.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Rodarte

Hairstylist Odile Gilbert, working with John Frieda, describes the loose, half-up braids she created at Rodarte as “rocker princess, with a cool, undone texture.” She gave strands subtle bends with a two-inch curling iron, brushed through the waves, and connected braids from each side of the head with a rose made of the models’ own hair. For those of us who aren’t hair sculptors, a simple bun would have a similar effect.

As for where the rocker part fits into the equation, some models styles were (very carefully) topped off with barbed wire headbands.

Bagdley Mischka

This reverse French braid, courtesy of Peter Gray working with Moroccanoil, looks about as complicated as it gets, but by having each model tip their heads upside while he worked, it was no different than a regular plait. He reserved the hair on top, curling and twisting it into a fluffy, feminine mohawk.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Shiny fire-engine red lips can feel like a screamingly loud statement, but makeup artist Dick Page pulled it off by keeping the rest of the face velvety and whisper soft. He brushed up the brows and filled them ever so slightly, and dusted lids with a soft sable shadow.

___________________________________________________________________

Marc Jacobs

“A 1940’s uptown girl was the inspiration for this look, but we made it more fun,” says Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau. “Backbrushing gives a slightly crazy, teased effect. We didn’t want the hair too perfect or symmetrical.” After misting dry strands with a volumizing spray, the hairstylist parted the hair deep and on the side, then set it in small pin curls. Once they’d cooled, he removed the pins, broke up the spirals with his fingers, then brushed through the hair with a boar bristle brush. A bobby pin held the riotous curls off the face.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Cynthia Rowley

Forget fifty shades of gray. At Cynthia Rowley, makeup artist Romy Soleimani teamed up to create a cohesive look using three shades of purple. Starting with the eyes and working to the lips and nails, the duo varied the intensities of the finishes from nearly translucent to fully opaque.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Donna Karan

While you may never want a ponytail that juts out quite as far as version Eugene Souleiman created for models at Donna Karan, you may be interested to know just how he got the hair that smooth and straight: Hairspray! The hairstylist shellacked the entire head before blowdrying and gathering a ponytail. (And should you ever want to recreate the style, a stiff cord gave the hair structure.)

___________________________________________________________________

Caroline Herrera

What better way to show off gorgeous gowns than an off-the-neck style that’s out of this world? Hairstylist Orlando Pita formed this intricately rolled updo by parting down the middle, then gathering the hair behind both ears into a center section. He tightly rolled the two side sections, pinning at the seam as he worked. Then he rolled up the back section, tucked away the ends, and slicked by flyaways with a moisturizing cream.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Diane Von Furstenberg

If you are like us, you have just one question about this particular look: What shade is that dropdead gorgeous lipstick? A pick by MAC makeup artist James Kaliardos, who filled the entire lip with a matte magenta pencil, slightly overdrawing through the middle to enhance the natural shape of the mouth. (He also added a dab of emollient balm to soften the finish.) Yes, please.

 ___________________________________________________________________

DKNY

Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman gave models silky, pin-straight strands at DKNY. “I wanted to create a look that embodied the spirit of the classic DKNY woman,” he said. He spritzed on a heat protectant spray, blew the hair dry with a round brush, then went over small sections with a flat iron before tucking strands behind the ears with a fine tooth comb. He topped the look off with a shiny finishing spray.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Christian Siriano

Who knew pinning up pigtails could transform them into such a decidedly grown-up style? “The braids evoke refinement and glamour, reminiscent of a Russian girl dressed for an evening at the opera,” says hairstylist Antoinette Beenders, who simply crisscrossed two fishtail braids, tucking and pinning the ends. A generous dose of hairspray tamed pesky flyaways.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Alexander Wang

Guido Palau wrapped models ponytails with long skeins of extensions dyed a rich russet he called “cognac.” And no, he’s not suggesting you try that at home. “The fakeness of the look is part of the appeal,” he says. He adds that the ultra-sleek ponytail, though, would look “elegant and dramatic for a night out.” To give hair an ultra-slick finish, Palau rubbed oil between his palms before patting all over the crown.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Rag & Bone

Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau gave models an Edie Sedgwick-inspired look with a tomboy vibe. “Creating the part and then sweeping the hair over the forehead gives it a feminine feel,” he said. He gathered dry hair in an elastic at the nape, twisted it into a loose knot, and secured with pins, making sure to leave the ends out. Tugging the hair upwards at the crown “softened” the style and added lift.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Jason Wu

What looked sleek and streamlined from the front was actually an intricate basket-weave updo courtesy of Odile Gilbert. She divided damp hair into three sections­: one in front of each ear, and one on the back of the head. She braided and tucked the back section, then pulled the sides across the head, pinning in place with two diagonal silver barrettes. A few drops of shine oil gave the look a high-gloss sheen.

 ___________________________________________________________________

Kate Spade

In an age where undone bedhead rules, there was something refreshingly nostalgic about the va-va-voom volume at Kate Spade. “It was all about capturing the intense energy of Manhattan and Studio 54 in the ’70s,” said hairstylist Tommy Buckett, working with Garnier. “Bigger is better.”

 ___________________________________________________________________

To create the impressive lift, Buckett set the entire head in curlers before blasting them with hairspray for “all-day hold.”

Hello Braids!

Braids or some sort of derivative seem to be the way to go this year.  We will be noticing a lot more braiding in Bridal hair styles this coming season.  They are a wonderful way to add texture and dimension to an otherwise simple hair style. 

Don’t worry too much if you don’t plan to wear your hair up……. There are plenty of ways to add braids while wearing your hair down too.

Check out our website for more photos of Brides wearing braids on their wedding day!!
