Altuzarra Spring 2013 – Beauty Report

Hair was prepped with Fekkai Full Blown Styling Whip in wet hair, then blow-dried flat into a deep side part. After spraying Fekkai Coif Sheer Hold Hairspray into sections, hair was pulled into a tight, low ponytail and misted with Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist for an intense luster.

“It all started with the movie Orlando,” designer Joseph Altuzarra says of his spring collection. His feminine twist on traditionally masculine pieces was a playful yet refined mixture of a new kind of power woman evolved to the extreme. What started as an equestrian story evolved into a gypsy fairy tale of rich fabrics embellished with Swarovski detailing. Beauty was polished and sophisticated; Fekkai stylist Paul Hanlon created a sleek style to compliment exquisite tailoring that defined the pulchritude on the runway.

After spraying Fekkai Coif Sheer Hold Hairspray into sections, hair was pulled into a tight, low ponytail and misted with Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist for an intense luster. A clean loop was pinned beneath the base and the remaining hair wrapped around to create a bow. This was a unique modification of a classic chignon that defines modern elegance for a contemporary woman. Makeup was kept mostly natural, aside from a chic navy liner and softly contoured cheeks. The look was highly cultivated and unexpected, pleasantly opulent and accessible for every kind of sophistication.
