NYFW S/S '10: AVON @ Charlotte Ronson

AVON @ Charlotte Ronson
"Ballerina Street" was the catch phrase at Charlotte Ronson. Or as Willer put it: "The prettiness of a ballerina merged with the tough cool of a New York girl." Which resulted in fresh, clean makeup. "Because cool means not wearing too much makeup," she added. Hair was twisted into messy chignons, full of "wispy imperfections," as Barrow put it.

Skin was perfected with Mineral Powder Foundation, and eyes and cheeks were played up with lots of pinky shimmer: Mineral Illuminator in Pink and Gentle Pink Rose. Lips were supple with pink lipstick, and lashes popped with black New Pulse Mascara.

Inspiration for the Look: The look mirrors the Charlotte Ronson collection, which is inspired by a remake of 80’s style. The hair was created to evoke a fresh, young wispy look and a “just walked out of dance class at Julliard” look to play off her fabrics and bold designs.

Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.
Step 2: Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.
Step 3: Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.
Step 4: Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 5: On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.
Step 6: Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.
