The Hair and Makeup at Rachel Zoe's F/W 16 Show Was Incredible
If ever there were a look spotted on the runway that we immediately wanted to rush home and copy, it was definitely the vintage glam at Rachel Zoe's F/W 16 presentation. In the spirit of Valentine's Day (or so we imagine), the hair and makeup posed a romantic vibe that coincided perfectly with the "1930s glamour with a 90s attitude" collection.
Tresemmé stylist Jeanie Syfu perfectly embodied the juxtaposition between "androgyny and romance," as Zoe herself explains by creating a messy half updo of double fishtail braids. First, the hair was prepped with Tresemmé Perfectly Undone Wave Creation Sea Foam ($9) and Tresemmé Perfectly Undone Sea Salt Spray ($9) throughout roots and lengths. Next, strands were blow-dried to enhance hair’s natural texture. Then, to start the two sections of braids, a purposely messy centre part was created. Stylists then gently teased the front sections at the roots to give added lift, then created a fishtail braid along both sides, leaving out some wispy fringe along the hairline.
Next, both braids were gathered at the back of the head and merged into one single braid, secured with an elastic. To get that pancaked effect, the braids were pulled apart with the fingers to widen and undo a few loose strands, then sprayed with Tresemmé Perfectly Undone Brushable Hold Hairspray ($9).
For that dreamy makeup, it was all about mixing different colours. MAC makeup artists applied Mineralize Blush ($45) in Warm Soul and Love Thing on the cheeks and eyelids, and for that crimson pout, they pressed MAC Lipstick ($36) in All Fired Up and Dare You with a bit of Aubergenius from the new Trend Forecast Lip Palette onto the lips. No perfectly lined lips here—the colour was feathered out with a fluffy brush for a softer effect. On the lashes, just a bit of False Lash Mascara ($42) was swiped on to finish everything off. Simple and gorgeous.
