With baby in the house, we weren’t able to hit the tents like we used to. Instead, we sent our intrepid reporter Erica Marton. Here are her favorite moments from the backstages she went to:
Erica loved what she called the “Pretty, no fuss curls with textured knots” that were created with Ouidad Mongongo Oil (great for dehydrated hair & also great as a protective treatment).
Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite says of the look, “Waves are all the rage right now and will continue to be a growing trend in 2014. The looks reminiscent of the creations seen at Tracy Reese can be achieved for all hair types with appropriate tools and styling products. Texture can be incorporated into knots and free flowing styles for a simple yet and chic hair look,”
Erica’s other fave was the Tracylee for Sally Hansen blue polish “Batbano Blue” due out March 2014, shown top.
ALICE + OLIVIA
The classic chignon with edge, caught Erica’s eye at Alice + Olivia. Nick Irwin from TIGI called it, “Parisian chic & its all about the 1960’s”.
The makeup at Alice + Olivia was described as “Prep meets Pretty” created with Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Pink Shimmer.
At Libertine, Erica’s Hands down favorite look was the nails! “Foil and studs made the nails so much fun!,” she says.
The hair called Warrior Princess was created by Akemi Tamaribuchi for Kérastase Paris.
To recreate the look:
· On damp hair, apply Mousse Volumifique from roots to ends and blow dry with hands
· Create a center part and gather hair into a soft, low ponytail over the ears and secure with an elastic at the nape of the neck
· Apply a pea-sized amount of Short Mania to the ponytail and lightly roughen with fingers
· Spray Powder Bluff throughout, working it from below and upwards to achieve a gauzy, angelic look
· For a more edgy look, attach two small hair extension pieces to both sides of the head with pins, tucking one side into the hair and leaving the other loose
· Finish the look with Laque Dentelle
