The Blonds F/W 2012

IMG_7802

One of my very favorite shows each nyfw is The Blonds. Even shooting dozens of shows a season, one rarely gets a change to see such truly amazing pieces of wearable art on the runway, and such a magnificent spectacle at a fashion show.

As highly glamorous as the clothes may be, the entire production — hair, nails, and makeup, at a Blonds show is mind-blowingly haute.

Bumble and Bumble’s Laurent Philippon created a “helmet hair” look for this season’s biker chic themed show.

Each model wore a motorcycle helmet with long, thick, horse tail-esque ponies attached to the back.
To get the look, the synthetic hair was steamed using a garment steamer.

Hair was then sharply chopped, to create a blunt ponytail. (Under the helmets, only Bumble and Bumble gel was used to wrap the models’ hair close to their heads.)

CND’s Kristina Estabrooks, who creates hands down the most intense nail art I’ve ever seen time and time again for The Blonds, designed the nails used for this season’s show. Materials used included leather and glass!

CND Super Shiny was used to seal the edges of nails.
