Mercedes-Benz Spring '10 Fashion Week: Cynthia Rowley

Backstage at Cynthia Rowley's spring '10 show, lead stylist Bok-Hee for Redken told me she wanted the models hairstyles to make them look like "girls who were perfect but went renegade." The look, a looped ponytail with rolled bangs in front, had a modern rockabilly feel. To create the style, Bok-Hee first blow-dried the hair using Redken Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer, then separated the hair into front and back sections. The back was pulled into a tight ponytail, then looped through to look like the model had done it herself, while the front was parted on the side, rolled over a cut-to-size foam donut and pinned in place. Bok-Hee used Workforce 09 flexible volumizing spray and Water Wax 03 shine defining pomade to give the hair a slick, shiny appearance.

Lead makeup artist Maky for M.A.C further emphasized the rebellious look with winged '50s-inspired eyeliner, a custom-mixed violet wash on lids and highlights and contours on the face, leaving eyelashes and lips untouched.
