Presentation: Erin by Erin Fetherston
Hair: Nick Irwin, TIGI
Makeup: James Kaliardos, M.A.C.
Nails: Sheril Bailey for Zoya
The Vibe: Woodsy fairies. Erin Fetherston loves the ethereal nymph look, so it was no surprise to see models with very girly, whimsical hair. All in all, there were three styles: beachy waves, low ponys, and topknots. “The topknot was inspired by Tinker Bell,” explained Eric Gomez, a TIGI stylist who collaborated closely with the lead, Steve Irwin, on the looks. “[Erin Fetherston] didn’t want it too clean, so we distressed it a bit and kept it slightly off center,” he explained of the windblown, romantic bun. Only two products were used for all three styles: Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Salt Spray and Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Finishing Hairspray.
The most charming touch, however, was the nails. All the manicures were done with a shimmery, sheer nude Zoya polish called Erin, which was so spot-on you’d think it was custom-made for the show. Not so, according to the lead nail tech, Sheril Bailey. “It was just one of those things,” she said. “We gave [Fetherston] ten shades on hands to pick from, and this was it.”
