Taking a one-week break from hair, this ‘Curl Gurl’ had the pleasure to go backstage (and view the runway shows) for the Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week at Lincoln Center! Lancôme invited me backstage to watch as the models were prepped before the show for designer Chris Benz. I definitely enjoyed the hustle and bustle backstage! Lancôme makeup artist Daniel Martin was a joy to watch backstage, chat with and I even got some makeup tips! The inspiration for the Spring/Summer ’13 Chris Benz Collection show was one part Japanese horror film, …
Christian Siriano brought the beautiful ballerina to life on the runway at his Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 runway show. The hair look was a simple top bun symbolizing the “moving ballerina, “created by lead hairstylist Antoinette Beenders, Global Style Director for Aveda. The look was a simple, easy updo. Bender says “it is a look you would see a ballerina wear on her day off,” which was created with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray ($24.00) and Pure Abundance Volumizing Hair Spray ($18.00).

This is a guest post from my lovely friend, Diane Az from The Beauty Alchemist.
