Mercedes-Benz Spring '11 Fashion Week NYC: Carmen Marc Valvo

Lead hairstylist Devin Toth for Ted Gibson Salon created 60s-inspired textured chignons at Carmen Marc Valvo, shown at the NASDAQ building in Times Square. Toth created the look by applying Ted Gibson Build-it Blow Drying Agent on the hair before blow-drying, pulling the hair into a ponytail and wrapping the tail over the base to produce a flattened chignon, leaving the end of the tail out. He then roughed up the hair at the base of the chignon and around the crown to keep it from looking "too ladylike" and finished with a spritz of Beautiful Hold Hairspray.

Romero Jennings, lead makeup artist for M.A.C, found inspiration in the collection's watercolorlike palette when creating the bold teal eye, which featured a swath of green-gold eyeshadow—M.A.C's new Daliance shade. A pinky beige lip, achieved with Spice lip pencil and the new Kissable Lip Color in Super finished the look.
