Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2011: Lacoste

Healthy, youthful looks complemented the more muted, sporty collection of the Spring Lacoste show at Lincoln Center Saturday. Drawing inspiration from Bo Derek’s braids and beads and ‘90s minimalism, Lead Hair for Redken Luke Hersheson created a girlish plaited ponytail for women and smooth hair parted on the side for men. “It feels quite young, tribal in a modern fresh way,” Hersheson said. He prepped with Redken Bodyfull and Glass 01 and plaited from the part to the ear on both sides and on to the ends. He gathered hair in a low side ponytail and flat-ironed. For men, Hersheson blow dried hair with a bristle brush, parted and used Redken for Men Matte Sponge 05 to fix hair back neatly for a smooth, minimalist finish.

Lead Makeup for M.A.C James Luke created “vibrant, cheeky, dewy” looks for models. His focus was an even complexion with natural highlights, blush on top of bronzer and light mascara so models looked healthy and pretty, a stark contrast to the contouring Luke has done. He also added an “orange, florescent mouth just for the ones who really look good,” Luke said.
