Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2013 NYC: Custo Barcelona

At Custo Barcelona's Fall/Winter 2013 show, beauty and the beast was the theme, presented in a mix of tribal and ornamental pieces, including men in patchwork and printed high-necked tunics and women in fitted clothing with pronounced shoulders and a series of fur-accented coats and glittery short dresses. Backstage in the tents at Lincoln Center, Duffy for Oribe Hair Care stuck to this idea, adding an elegant but edgy center-part cornrow to a textured long-hair look. First, Duffy sprayed the hair with Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray, “and lots of it,” he said, to make sure hair laid flat on the top of the head. After creating a center part, he divided the hair in half so locks hung to the sides of the face. Toward the bottom, the hair became more broken and loose with extra texture at the ends. The cornrow braid ran from the top of the head to the back, pushing hair forward toward the face and allowing texture to be seen. “The padded shoulders in Custo’s clothing accentuates that shape,” Duffy said. The braid was clipped away to the side at the nape of the neck so the end was hidden.

Nails were filed into a natural shape and were painted a dark gray to amplify the winter colors in the collection. For makeup, Maybelline created a soft, natural face inspired by the 1960s. Eyeliner, brown eye shadow and a neutral lip completed the look.
