City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith


Though we can’t provide you with lessons on how to mosh at a rock concert we can help you create a hairstyle sure to have you looking effortlessly rocker chic. Enter backstage at Twinkle for their Spring 2010 collection. John Ruidant for Redken created a soft Rock & Roll look, perfect for everyday wear. Simply make a clean center part and section off hair.

Using a 1″ curling iron, spray hair first, then wrap it around the iron to hold curls. Clip sections after curing. Once curls have cooled off, lighty brush and comb them up to give it a rougher feel. The style will be flat on top and all of the volume will sit on the shoulders with lots of frizz and flyaways.

At ThreeasFour, Ashley Javier embraced dry and frizzy summer hair. For long-haired models, Javier crimped the top and kept the bottom straight and then divided in four sections. The sections were crossed and looped so that the crimped locks and straight pieces were intertwined. For short-haired models, she simply crimped and shaped the top to add a textured look. Javier wanted to create volume, which allows women to feel as though they have more hair, which crimping and frizz allows. “Don’t fight the dry!” says Javier.

If you prefer to keep your hair more toned down and want the emphasis on your lips, Spring 2010 is the season for you. We saw blue (yes blue!) at Doo. Ri, violet at Vena Cava, coral at Rebecca Taylor and fuchsia at Andy & Debb. At Doo. Ri, Tom Pechaux for MAC described the woman as “a bit strange, a self-confidant individual who’s not following trends.” At Vena Cava, bold matte lips took center stage with a mix of blue, burgundy and red lip colors to create a violet mauve result. At Rebecca Taylor MAC artist Rie Omoto went with a sexy yet sweet look, personified by bright orange coral lips, which unlike the standard red, compliments a variety of skin tones. Lastly, in an attempt to keep the look futuristic rather than classic, James Kaliardos went with YSL’s Rouge Pur Lipstick in Fuchsia Pink at Andy & Debb. Note to the bold lipped: Always keep the rest of your makeup subdued so the focus remains on your lips and you don’t look like Dame Edna.
