"It's an effortless updo, but there are a few tricks," lead stylist Bok-Hee explained. To create fullness, she applied Redken Full Frame Mousse 08 to hair before blow-drying it. Then, she pulled hair back into a ponytail, then twisted it into a bun before securing it with bobby pins. To emphasize the tight area underneath the bun, she sprayed Redken Forceful 23 hairspray on hair, then dried hair again to create extra shine.
To complement Rachel Roy's French-chic clothing, the hair and makeup had to be sophisticated. "The look is about luminous skin and a non-retro black eye," makeup artist Bobbi Brown said. "It's a very strong black eye that gives a little bit of an edge." After moisturizing skin and applying foundation where needed, she applied her Face Highlighter Pen in Opal to cheeks. Eyes stood out with Black Ink gel liner on the upper lid, a soft dusting of beige Shimmer Brick below the eyes, and Everything mascara. On lips, Bobbi used her brand's lip color in Beige, along with a bit of gloss blotted down.
