The look for Twinkle by Wenlan was inspired by a gothic fairytale, both disturbing and romantic.
Nails by Roxanne for CND
Playing on the theme of the dark and slightly gothic, models were fitted with press-on nails coated with two layers of Dark Ruby, and softened with Super Matte topcoat, to create a crepe-like, textured effect. The length and shape were kept medium length and wearable, custom-fitted to each model’s nails. Nail shape was square, with softly rounded edges.
Hair by John Ruidant for Redken
Further drawing inspiration from the dark and whimsical themes of the collection, the Redken hair team led by John Ruidant combined both matte and shiny elements to create a sleek, but textured updo. Hair was first divided into 2 sections (top and bottom), and blow-dried using Redken’s Fabricate. Avoiding the use of brushes and combs, stylists used their fingers to make the sections of hair appear very textured and “producty” while styling. The top section was blow dried straight up for volume at the crown, and then incorporated into the rest of the hair via twisted roll on the side of the head. The bottom portion of the hair was looped and kept rough, for an extra bit of texture and edge.
