I hope everyone enjoyed yesterday’s peek into all the pretty makeup looks Team LC spotted at New York Fashion Week. (I don’t know about you, but we look forward to seeing the backstage beauty looks almost as much as the clothes themselves!) Today, it’s all about the hair. Without further ado, here’s our backstage coverage of some of the hairstyles that graced the runways this season…
The tousled hair look at Thakoon this season was inspired by chic and easy Parisian glamour. The string you see in the photo tied down the hair at the model’s neck to help maintain its face-framing shape, and was cut off right before the show.
TRESemme stylists created a chic fishtail braid crown with a deep side part to complement Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2014 collection (which was inspired by famous Latin American woman like Frida Kahlo and Bianca Jagger).
It was all about the tousled topknot at the Spring 2014 Kate Spade presentation. This style is an old favorite of ours around the LC.com headquarters, especially on days when we skip the shampoo.
Lela Rose was without a doubt my personal favorite Fashion Week hair look. Ted Gibson sprinkled flecks of gold leaf onto the models coifs, held in place with Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray.
The slicked back tresses and textured waves at Hervé Léger were meant to look like the models had just washed their faces. While this Bumble and Bumble ‘do may not be the most wearable look of the bunch, I love the concept behind it. Clips were used to maintain the look during all the backstage prep, but were removed right before the models hit the runway.
Parisian stylist extraordinaire Odile Gilbert created the sleek and elegant ponies on the models at Jason Wu. Kerastase’s Boucles D’Art mousse was used to get the hair shiny but not greasy, and slick to the scalp. The whole look was finished off with the Laque Dentelle hairspray.
The hair at Jill Stuart (another Odile Gilbert masterpiece) was defined by messy, textured waves. Kerastase Powder Bluff dry shampoo was used for texture, and a curling iron was used only through the middle of the mane, leaving the roots and ends straight.
Just like the makeup, the hair at Tibi was whimsical, fresh and ethereal. Stylists used a flat iron to create disheveled, bed-head style waves meant to look like the girls had been traveling on a long road trip across the country.
Redken lead stylist Martin Christopher Harper created the California road trip-inspired tresses seen at Trina Turk. Effortless, beachy waves evoked a casual glamour that paired with the collection oh-so-perfectly.
