How Kate Moss Inspired the DIY Hairstyle at Altuzarra

How Kate Moss Inspired the DIY Hairstyle at Altuzarra

Who doesn’t want to look like a megamodel off duty? Perhaps that’s what ran through Odile Gilbert’s mind when she dreamed up the 'dos for Altuzarra.

"The idea is to do the chignon that Kate Moss does for herself," explained the hairstylist, who was representing Kérastase. To achieve this DIY style, she spritzed models' manes with Kérastase Spray à Porter ($28) to give it texture and scrunched it with her hands. She twisted hair back into a chignon, securing it with clear elastic and pins. For models with finer hair, she added more texture using Kérastase Powder Bluff ($36). Every chignon looked slightly different based on the shape of the models' heads, and baby hairs were left loose.

Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics wanted to keep the girls from looking "too pretty," so he gave six of them a funky edge by topping their eyelids with greenish glitter and hot-pink lipstick (yes, lipstick on top of glitter on top of their eyelids). "When people think of glitter, they think of disco queens," he said backstage. "We treated it very simple. We used it very lightly to add a touch of playfulness. Why not? It's a fashion show. It's one season." The rest of the faces were left bare.

Manicure pro Michelle Saunders created a sophisticated, soft French manicure using Essie nail polishes Allure, First Base Coat, and Good to Go Top Coat. "It's very light, so there's barely room for error if you try to do it on your own," she said before the catwalk.

If DIY is the theme of the runway, we're game to try it ASAP!
