Mercedes-Benz Fall ‘11 Fashion Week NYC: Imitation

To complement the elegant styles at the Imitation by Tara Subkoff show, which was held at Milk Studios, Ouidad created a femme fatale, socialite look that was inspired by the glamorous and iconic hairstyles of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. Stylists used one of three Ouidad products to create volume, including Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, Tress Effects Styling Gel and PlayCurl Volumizing Foam. Hair was then styled into tight curls that were loosened right before the show started to give it an elegant finish.
