2012 MBFWA: Poolside sophistication at Bec & Bridge
“It’s poolside sophistication,” Alan White (ghd) said when chatting about the wet-look hairstyle he created for the Bec & Bridge show. “She lives on the Almafi Coast, she’s jumped in the pool and she’s lounging in the sun letting her hair dry naturally.” We instantly want her life. He was putting S-bends in the hair with the ghd mini styler before loading up the hair with ghd Smooth & Finish Serum to create the damp look. “We want that indentation with the bend as it will help to define the hair when it’s got all the product in.” For the “Mediterranean Summer” makeup look Nicole Thompson (MAC) literally wanted models to be “dripping in moisture”. That meant last minute spritzes of MAC Fix + and clear gloss through the brows. To avoid models from looking greasy, she pressed Silver Dust Loose Powder into the cheek before the MAC Fix + went on. Something Special cream blush was also used on the front of the cheeks and up through the brow bone to give a warm glow. OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu was chosen for a sheer nail.
