London Calling: Hair at Christopher Kane

Posted on September 19th 2014 by

According to hairstylist Guido Palau, it doesn’t feel right at this moment to do too much. Simple, natural hair feels much more relevant — and we’ve got to be honest here, no one wants to look like they’ve tried too hard. Right? Christopher Kane isn’t a very hairdressery designer to begin with, and each season for the runway shows he really prefers simplicity. Fingers instead of combs were used to create soft and natural looking parts, before Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate blow-dry lotion was applied to damp hair while allowing it to air-dry, lending it a natural kink. Once the hair was dry, a coin size amount of Shine Flash 02 Glisting Mist was used to add luster to flatten roots. Lastly, before the models were ready to walk a few strands were pulled to give off the messy chic look. The anti-hair was also followed up with cool, modern make-up meaning less of it. Which was the best interpreation on minimalism, as make-up artist Lucia Pieroni prepped each model’s skin with NARS luminous moisture cream and optimal brightening concentrate, then perfected the complexions with pure radiant tinted moisturizer and concealer for a flawless finish.

Loose waves ruled at Christopher Kane, Burberry, Marchesa, Jonathan Saunders, Top Shop Unique, and finally Mary Katrantzou. For those of us who aren’t fortunate enough to air-dry our hair and go, opt for bed head and even a low-slung messy ponytail instead. It seems as though, undone beauty and post-sex hair has been the bulk of the make-up artists and hairstylists inspiration for the SS’15 runway shows. As seen first hand specifically at the Donna Karen and Marc Jacobs shows during New York Fashion Week — has continued on to London and now Milan. Thankfully, we all can look forward to the easy 10 minutes or less morning routine come next season. If you’re super impatient like myself, these beauty trends from the London shows are perfect for this time of year.

Little to no makeup goes along way and to be honest, the undone lewk and bushy eyebrows has been my routine for as long as I’ve known how to apply lipstick. I’d like to know — What has been some of your favorite beauty moments thus far during fashion week? Tell me everything, leave nothing out.
