Cornrows Get a High-Fashion Update at Marchesa

Feb 13 2014 - 12:45pm

For Marchesa [1] Fall 2014, we expected red-carpet-worthy beauty, but there were a few exciting surprises, too. Mark Hampton with Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe created two different hairstyles that came down the runway. The first was the typical midheight bun with mussed flyways that's sure to be popular come wedding [2] season. The other look was a half-up involving cornrows. The braids were quite the contradiction to the glamorous gowns [3] the models were wearing on the catwalk.

The makeup was soft and sweet. Gucci Westman used lipstick and illuminator to accent the cheeks but added a pop of color on the eyes. Each model wore a blue or green streak across lids depending on her eye color. The goal was "Scottish country girl mixed with a Maharaja princess." Westman used Revlon [4] Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner (available this Spring) to get the crisp shape. Lead manicurist Jin Soon Choi applied one coat of Revlon x Marchesa [5] Gray Suede (available September 2014) for the illusion of a bare nail.
