Me with Thomas Dunkin, lead hairstylist for Sebastian Professional

On Friday I hit the tents at Bryant Park to see what hairstyle Thomas Dunkin, lead hairstylist for Sebastian Professional, was creating for the Charlotte Ronson show, which featured clothing inspired by a combination of 1940s glamour and rocker femininity. Dunkin was doing ponytails that were sleek and tight through the crown of the head with a natural texture in the tail, using some of Sebastian's new Flaunt collection of products. To get the look, which Dunkin described as "glamorous, fun and young," he flat ironed the first third of the hair pin straight, then misted Trilliant over the top of the head for surface shine. He then combed the hair into a taught ponytail, spraying the top with Halo Mist and Shine Define flexible hold hairspray. He used Gel Forte to tame flyaways. Meanwhile, Luc Bouchard, key makeup artist for M.A.C was trying to capture the "emotion in the eyes and lips," applying a dark greenish-gray tone to the eyes for a look of subtle sadness and a combination of Chestnut and Night Moth pencils to the lips, using a lip brush to apply the colors. —Lotus Abrams, Managing Editor
