The Hair at Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 by Sebastian.

Thomas Dunkin and the Sebastian hair team were on hand backstage at Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 show, styling the models’ crimped tresses with textured shine and a touch of the islands to complement Mara's "Aloha" inspired collection full of color and prints.

The Hair Look:
-Start with damp hair and apply Thickefy Foam throughout. Blow-dry the hair with a large round brush.
-Starting from the under layer of the hair and working outwards, micro crimp small (2”) sections of the hair.
-Backcomb and gently tease the hair to build more body and texture. Lightly spritz hair with Shaper Fierce hairspray to create flexible hold.
-Select random pieces around the head and use various sized curling irons to create different effects and textures throughout.
-Create a deep part at the front of the head and side sweep the hair flat across the top of the head. Use Shine Crafter wax to create a smooth, sleek look that holds the part in place.

How to Get the Look with Sebastian Professional:

Thickefy Foam – Weightless Thickening Foam ($16.95)
Shaper Fierce  –  Ultra-Firm Finishing Hairspray ($16.95)

butter LONDON Nails at VEDA S/S 2013.

The nails for the VEDA Spring/Summer 2013 showing were created by Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador for butter LONDON.

Overall Look: The collection by this cool NYC label featured leather textures, psychedelic prints and tie-dye hues.

Nail Design: The nails were inspired by the tie-dye pieces of the collection, which we complemented with a bespoke Cosmic Nail, including a mix of mauve and olive with celestial effects.  

Details: Knackered was used as a top coat to give the nails a holographic effect. To add an edge to the look, a glossy black stripe was added for an unexpected geometric element then painted with butter LONDON 3-Free Lacquer Colours: Toff, Sloane Ranger, Knackered, Union Jack Black.
