NEW YORK FASHION WEEK S/S 2012
Alexandre’s spring 2012 collection was prim and proper with fanciful detailing at the waist. Inspired by ’50s silhouettes, Alexandre manipulated both old and new for a timeless yet fresh lineup.
Nails took cues from the luminous silk and elaborate beading of the collection. Wanda Ruiz from the CND team designed “Sugar Babe” manicures with white glitter on clear tips. She coated the nails with multiple layers of CND Air Dry Top Coat and fine white sparkles.
Styling methods: Wet hair with Prep and add Thickening Hairspray and Styling Creme before drying. Section the top of the head into a square and pull everything else into a low ponytail. Use hairspray on the sides of the head to slick back the hair and create a shiny texture. Blow out the ponytail so it’s soft and straight.
Spray the top of the head with Thickening Hairspray and rough blow dry to create texture. Use a 1-inch curling iron and comb out the hair if necessary for additional texture. Lay the top section over the head and secure to the bungee on the ponytail.
