Generally Hervé Léger by Max Azria sticks to neutral and natural beauty looks for its runway shows, but for Fall 2014, there was a more futuristic theme. Lead hairstylist Laurent Philippon with Bumble and Bumble created a colorful ponytail with streaks of blue, orange, and pink. The bright extensions were applied with double-sided tape, which he heated with a blow dryer and secured with Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode.
Makeup was also an adventure in science fiction. Val Garlad for Temptu created a graphic, aerodynamic shape using a paintbrush, and while the eyeliner was a matte finish, the lip was high gloss. The manicure by Julie Kandalec created an illusion of a bare nail. One coat of Essie's Lady Like was topped with a clear top coat and finally finished off with matte. The intermediate top coat was added to keep the nude polish from streaking.
