HAIR: Eugene Souliman (styling), Eva Scrivo (colour); both for Wella Professionals
SNAPSHOT: A high society, but unpretentious, girl who rides her horse at weekends
THE SCOOP: Known for her trademark take on New York sporty chic, Donna Karen's design for DKNY a/w 2010 centres around long, lean silhouettes in a neutral palette of colours for the active and metropolitan city girl. The beauty look is just as low-maintenance and approachable, with an equestrian-inspired look that sweeps into a low side ponytail that flirtatiously sits over the shoulder.
Unlike most other collections, hair colour is also incorporated into the final model look - custom-blended pieces were glued to hair using a medical adhesive not unlike eyelash glue, and set with a cold blast hair dryer.
"DKNY is about the city, and style that looks organic and casual. This new Wella colour I used on the extensions has toner in it, to prevent red molecules from turning brassy - so you get a very sunkissed yet lived-in look. For the everyday woman, clip-in extensions are a great way to try a new color without the damage or commitment," says Scrivo.
GET THE LOOK MAKEUP - For autumn, beige and darker shadow-toned powders were used to brighten and gently define eyes. Brown mascara was applied to the base of lashes only for a hint of colour, and groomed brows were kept quietly polished with a clear brow finisher. Cocochino Lipstick (a working name for a/w 2010) was pressed into lips as a nude stain.
GET THE LOOK HAIR - After hair was prepped with System Professional Volumagic and blow dried with a large round brush, Souliman rakes his hands through the hair to loosen waves - finally fastening locks to the side in a low ponytail. System Professional Hypercurl applied to the length of the pony added texture and separation.
