RAFW 2010: Hair That's As Easy As 1-2-3 at Christopher Esber

Y'know what it's like when it's Fashion Week—you see heaps of styles but even if they look wearable, they're so freakin' complicated in fact that you end up sticking with a simple pony. Lucky for me and you though, this style really is as easy as it looks. Created by Darren Borthwick using La Biosthetique hair products, it's designed to look like a "girl going to work." All be it a stylish, sassy girl going to work. You blow-dry it smooth, mix together Ultra Strong Gel with Bio Creator (one's strong, one's pliable) and then comb that in at the top. You're meant to see comb marks and be warned, it will fall a little but that just adds to the semi-dishevelled vibe. Then you grab all the hair to tie into a pony, tease the hair just below the nape of the neck and then secure and band below so that the clothes can be shown off.

We also caught up with Jodi Oliver who directed the makeup for shu uemura. She kept the palette fresh by using pastels, a nice change against the dark, edgy clothes of Esber. The face was neutral, a pale mauve (M Beige 804) graced the lids while a complementing blush in P Orange 55 was applied to the cheeks. The lip was kept nude and the brows were lightened using concealer. Sensing a trend?
