Spring 2012 Beauty A To Z
Spring 2012 Beauty Trends A to Z
A is for…ARISTOCRATIC INFLUENCE
Blame it on the Kate Middleton effect—the royals are in fashion’s spotlight. Louis Vuitton’s majestic updos were adorned with tiaras to suit Marc Jacobs’ princess fantasyland. To achieve the soft texture, Redken creative consultant Guido Palau used a cream-mousse on damp hair to stir up volume, blow-dried, then applied Redken Wool Shake 08 Gel-Slush Texturizer, $23, to produce a matte finish before fashioning a French twist. Make it modern by loosening pieces at the back before hairspraying.
FLARE picks: Sebastian Whipped Creme, $22. Joico JoiMist Medium Classic Styling and Finishing Spray, $20.
