TIGI and Maybelline Create a Mystic Look With Hair Chains and Bold Liner at Mara Hoffman
For Mara Hoffman’s F/W ‘13 collection, TIGI lead stylist Nick Owen and Maybelline lead artist Charlotte Willer conjured up a runway full of what they called “mystic gypsies.” For the hair, Owen used TIGI Catwalk Session Series Styling Cream to create “shiny, really polished hair on the top.” Next, sections of hair from the bottom were twisted with TIGI mousse to create “a rope-like texture.” Once hair set, sections were pulled apart and a chain was added from ear to ear.
Willer used gel liner on the eye to create a modified cat eye—pulling the liner straight out from the middle of the eye. She combined concealer and Color Sensational Lipcolor in Totally Toffee for a muted beige lip.

If you’re Owen, that means styling the hair with plenty of texture and a topknot.
