NARS & Wella @ Thakoon
With an inspiration like "Surfer girl meets Seventh Samari," the beauty is bound to be fun. Thakoon's Spring 2010 collection is a jarring mix of vibrant colors - lots of water inspired blues and strong, bold patterns. So the hair and makeup demanded restraint. Kendal painted faces in a monotone palette seeped in pinks and beiges for a strong, fresh, slightly futuristic vibe. inspired by the wave patterns in the clothing, Scrivo prepped for the show by dying hair extensions myriad tones, from champagne to mahogany to pewter, and fastening them into models' locks to create edgy dimension. After that, the hair was pulled half up and wound into a casual, boppy bun.
GET THE LOOK
A very strong and luminous face is the key to getting this look right. “It’s a beach warrior look - surfer girl meets Seven Samurai," explained lead artist Diane Kendal. She used a minimal amount of makeup everywhere, but contoured the cheeks and kept the eye deeply set to convey an image of power through minimalism.

Scrivo used hair color from Wella to dye hair pieces that were fastened into each model's hair. Locks were then separated into top and bottom sections, and the top section was slicked back into a tight bun. The bun was left a little undone, like a high school girl who nonchalantly looped up her hair in class.
The nails were made to look like an extension of the skin with Shirly Temple Peony, a pinky nude shade from Priti Polish.
