Spring 2012 Hair Trend: Sleek & Straight

Frederic Fekkai Lead Stylist, Paul Hanlon created a Relaxed 90’s-Grunge Look for Joseph Altuzarra’s Spring-Summer 2012 Fashion Week Runway Show.

Inspiration: Paul Hanlon created a hair style with a young and personalized look to match Altuzarra’s contemporary collection. The style was casual and beautifully chic, giving each look a touch of individuality and character.

Rock the look: Apply Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to the top two inches of wet hair, creating volume and lift. Create a strong right side part, bringing the front of the hair all the way to the left side of the head, and slightly over the left side of the face. Blow-dry the hair straight using a large round brush. Spray the hair with Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist to create a glossy shine and secure any stray hairs. Next, brush through the hair with hands, to give the hair a more tousled look. Next, apply Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème from the mid section of the hair all the way to the bottom of the hair. To secure the look, spray Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hair Spray throughout the hair.

The Makeup Look:  Tom Pecheux created a look called Elizabeth Taylor at the gym.  For the skin, Select Cover-Up was applied to even skintone and create a flawless effect.  Select Sheer/Loose Powder was pressed into skin with 150 Brush to set and provide a clean, matte finish.  For the eyes, Smolder Eye Kohl and Carbon Eye Shadow was layered and used with 266 Brush to shape and define a very strong, yet feminine eyebrow.  Finally, M·A·C Pro Gloss Texture was lightly applied with 252 Brush over the eyelids for a dewy finish.  The lips were kept hydrated and natural.
