Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2013 NYC: Victoria Beckham

Guido, Redken creative consultant, created a dual-textured modern long hair look to complement the chic clothing at Victoria Beckham’s show, which took place at the elegant New York Public Library. “It has no reference to another period in time,” he told me. To achieve the look, he added extensions to some of the hair for added length, prepped strands with Redken Guts 10 and blow-dried the hair with a Babyliss Pro dryer. He then parted the hair in the center and used a curling iron on the back of some of the models’ hair to create a little bend for movement. To produce the contrasting textures, he applied Shine Flash 02 to the top of the hair and Powder Refresh 01 on the back.

Diane Kendall, lead stylist for Maybelline, was also on hand creating a sculpted look that featured eyes accented with beige and charcoal shades and a fine line of black cream liner on the upper rim and nude lips achieved by topping concealer with lip balm.  A nude, natural nail designed by Roxanne Valinotti for CND completed the beauty look. She used CND Putty and Desert Suede to get the look. “It’s like a tinted moisturizer for the nail,” Valinotti told me.
