Redken’s FW2017 Tory Burch recap, hair by Guido

“This season at Tory Burch, both Tory and I were inspired by Katharine Hepburn from the movie “Philadelphia Story”. I’ve prepped the hair with Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner to give it a lot of shine. To me, very clean hair can enhance individual texture. I’ve pulled the hair back into a low ponytail, and added this thick black velvet ribbon from Tory to evoke a romantic, sophisticated, soft, pretty look. I’ve kept the hair at a center part vs. a side part, to give a more girly, feminine touch that very much speaks to the Tory Burch brand.” – Guido

Going Anti-Valentine? Try these looks!

Whether you are happily single or want to follow your own path to the perfect romance, you may be one of us who find Valentine’s day a little too overrated. We are not against this endearing season of love, oh of course not, we just want to share an alternative way of celebrating it. So if anyone asks you what you are up to this Valentine’s day, tell them you will be dressing up in goth punk and having the time of your life. Here are some looks you can try to get yourself some anti-valentine energy:

1. The metallic undereye liner-

Nothing speaks rebellion like metallic shades. Say goodbye to the pinks and reds and get yourself some hard-core girl power. Use the Smashbox full exposure palette or a NYX gold slide on pencil.

2. Smudged black eye-shadow-

Rock your look by putting as much black eye shadow as you like. Smudge it with your fingertips to achieve a ragged look. No, we are not kidding, mix this look with a layer of black lip gloss or a thin layer of a black lipstick. Use the Ardency Inn punker eyes like fire shadow for this goth look.

Prabal Gurung Fall/Winter 2017 With JINsoon

For the Fall/Winter 2017 Prabal Gurung collection, Jin Soon Choi created a “half-dipped” negative space nail art, re-imagining nails that were dipped in paint. The final look is fun and playful, yet still clean and sophisticated.

Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2017 With essie

Alexander Wang. Inspiration: The Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2017 collection pulled inspiration from a strong and rebellious individual, which echoed throughout his collection with industrial detailing and embellishments. Rita Remark for essie used this inspiration to create a “concrete” nail look, which Rita said symbolizes the “foundation that allows your individuality to shine.”

“A lot of designers like to talk about personality. At some shows, you can find an edgy, East Village cool-girl, but here at Beckham we wanted to highlight an understated beauty. I’ve seen a resurgence of a new idea of luxury in hair – very clean hair that’s left to dry naturally. I love using Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner to obtain this level of shine.

essie Show Recap: Michael Costello Fall/Winter 2017

Inspired by a “vixen’s love story,” Michael Costello’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection starts off with a dainty feel in both colors and materials, and ends on a tougher note, and Rita Remark for essie wanted the nails to mirror that. She created a copper wire nail using penny talk as an accent color, choosing it specifically because it matches the hardware throughout the collection.
