Mercedes-Benz Spring ’12 Fashion Week NYC: Lindsay Degen

To complement designer Lindsay Degen's artsy and colorful spring 2012 womenswear collection, lead hairstylist Shalom Sharon for Oribe Hair Care infused the styles he created with multi-hued hair wraps. Inspired by the knitted clothing, Sharon gave the hair lots of texture. He prepped the hair with Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray and Foundation Mist to create a voluminous base, then dried the hair with his hands, creating loose curls by twisting the hair around his fingers. While drying, he also massaged the hair at the scalp to give it even more body. To achieve his desired texture, Sharon sprayed strands with Dry Texturing Spray while he twirled the hair, then misted it with the new Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray. Depending on each model's hair length and type, Sharon incorporated the hair wraps in braids, pony tails or just tied into loose strands.

Lead makeup artist Vince Smith of New York City's Vince Smith Hair Experience gave the models a "fresh morning glow" that featured dewy skin, a hint of pale metallic shadow on the eyes and a strong lash and brow. To continue with the pops of color in the hair and clothing, Smith added some color-blocking elements to the models' faces once they were in their outfits.
