Mercedes-Benz NYC Fashion Week Spring 2011: Rag & Bone

For the Rag & Bone show, held in NYC's Meatpacking District, the look was both sexy and a little rugged, inspired by a traveler who has just finished a long journey. "It looks kinda wrong, but also kinda right," said Guido, lead stylist for Redken. To get the wet, messy updo, Guido used Redken Extreme Anti-Snap and Glass 01 on wet hair, then used lots of pins to hold it up in a disheveled bun-like style. He used an American Apparel black cloth headband to "add a little structure to the mess," then pulled out some baby hairs in front and used water to make them stick to the side of the face, a finishing touch Guido considered the key aspect of the look. "With hair, it's often the little things that make the biggest point," he said.

For the makeup, Gucci Westman for Revlon created a lived-in, sexy look with heavily blended brown-gray eyes, wet eyebrows, a touch of cream blush and a light gloss on the lips. "This is what a woman would hope to look like at the end of an adventure," she said.
