The look at Pamella Roland? Fresh, easy makeup and a pretty updo adorned with a thick leather headband, perfect for camouflaging bad hair days. Here’s how to get the look.
Mane man Paul Labrecque was dealing with possibly the worst hair day of 2013 thus far, but I love the way he handled it. Inspired by the ballet, he created a formal hairstyle with a French twist to reflect the winter feeling inspired by ballet. Petra Alexandra, Inc. exclusively for Pamella Roland made the thick leather headbands, which adorned the look. Said Labrecque, “It’s all about severe hair to juxtapose with the beautiful flowing clothing.” To create the style, he used Paul Labreque products–Volume Finish, a firm-holding silk spray, and Paul Labreque Daily Finish to remove flyaways and keep it sleek!
Matin Maulawizada for Laura Mercier did the makeup honors. Said Maulawizada, “The look for Pamella is inspired by Saint Petersburg, Russian czars and opulence. Women in that era didn’t really wear makeup but instead a lot of jewelry and fancy clothing. I maintained integrity of that simplicity with a nude palette and strong brows with a bold lip. Russian red was too literal, so we did gold on the eyes and a deep maroon lip.” Here’s what he used.
- Matin applied Laura Mercier Lip Silk ($22) to the models’ lips to create a smooth and nourished base.
- He contoured and shaded the lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Coffee Bean ($20).
- Adding the final touch, he applied Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Deep Wine ($20) to achieve bold, modern look.
