Bumble and Bumble & CDN @ Ruffian
Ruffian's Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are known for their structured, ladylike frocks, so it was only natural that the hair, makeup, and nails were just as mesmerizing as their Spring 2010 collection.Neil Moodie's loose chignon was inspired by Katherine Hepburn in the film "The Philadelphia Story."
"There's a scene where she places her hair up," said Moodie. "And this style is very personal to how the actress does it." While Hepburn's look was more set in, Moodie used a generous amount of styling creme to perfect a "homemade, matte bun that feels like a couple days old."James Kaliardos drew influence from Picasso's late years to create a modern, beautiful masterpiece of pink shaded eyes with defined gray lines and flirty lashes.
"It's kind of Jean Shrimpton meets Picasso," says MAC key artist James Kaliardos of the look he created for the Ruffian spring 2010 runway show.
The accent on the eyes was a gray liquid liner that Kaliardos mixed up "art-school style" and painted on in a sweep from the inner corner up over the eyelid crease.
"We're inspired by painters and the feeling of being an artsy girl," says Kaliardos. "She's beautiful, still, yet not too precise. It's a strong look."

--Prep hair by blow drying with lots of Bumble + bumble Styling Creme for texture.
--Section dry hair into two and twist the top portion into a loose chignon just below the crown.
