Get out your swords and shields, ladies; once again, it’s time to fend off the Very Bad Hair and Makeup Ideas stalking down the runway at Fashion Week.
Yes, yes, the hair and makeup at Fashion Week are not intended to be “ready-to-wear” looks for the average woman. (Actually, nothing at Fashion Week is intended for the “average woman,” is it?) But still. If I walked into class with this hairstyle I would get laughed right out of the room. Actually I think I’ve woken up with this hairstyle some mornings. I ought to have just rolled out of bed and gone to school that way — think of all the time I could have saved!
Other trends in recent shows include using white around the eyes and on the lashes, nude lips, and … vatoos. You heard me. Vatoos. Fortunately, there are other designers who are using some really traditionally lovely looks, which is nice (thank you, Nicole Miller).
These come to you courtesy of Aveda from the Christian Siriano Spring/Summer 2011 show. Yes, that stylist is crimping that model’s hair all the way down to the ends; she is not, as you might think, securing a piece of corrugated cardboard to her head.
