The Vibe: Downtown cool mixed with Parisian chic. Models were all given a set of cheek-grazing faux fringe that covered their right eye. To achieve the look, lead stylist Dai Michishita created a left-side part, sewed three sets of extensions into a cornrow along the hairline, and then used a razor on the fake hair to create jagged bangs. To complete the look, the back of each girl’s hair was pulled into a loose twist, secured with a clear elastic, and then finished with a spritz of Redken Fashion Work 12 spray. “We wanted the models to look like they were walking down the streets of Paris with an easy, but impactful style,” said stylist Kelsy Osterman. “The twist is meant to come open a bit as they walk down the runway so it looks like the hair is blowing in the wind.”
Lead makeup artist, Sil Bruinsma, of M.A.C. gave models a sparse look to show-off the edgy hair. Eyes were kept bare except for a swipe of mascara, coal liner in the corners, and bushy brows that were colored in with powder-based stud pencils. To create depth and shape on the face, Bruinsma used M.A.C.’s soon-to-be-released sculpting cream in a taupey-brown on the hollows below the cheekbones to mimic natural shadows. Lips remained demure and neutral; after being well-scrubbed and exfoliated, pouts were painted with a layer of both moisturizer and foundation.
