AMMERMAN SCHLÖSBERG FALL/WINTER 2015: BACKSTAGE

Ammerman Schlösberg Fall-Winter 2015- Backstage 011

I was only allowed backstage at the FW15 Ammerman Schlösberg show for a few brief moments. But that small window of time was enough for me to see that the shows hair and makeup were likely to be one of the most unusual beauty looks of the season.

Mark Carrasquillo and the SEPHORA PRO team created the look, which was inspired by the clothing collection’s “Furry Hospital” theme. Featuring pale skin, glittery smokey eyes, and on some models– fake blood.

The look was slightly customized for each model.

Only one eye was beautified on this model– who ended up wearing an eye patch covering the opposite eye.

To get the look:

1. Prep the hair with Alterna Haircare CAVIAR Perfect Texture Finishing Spray to create a base of very textured hair.
2. Take small sections of the hair and twist them into dreads. Spray with Alterna Haircare CAVIAR Working Hair Spray and, starting towards the ends, gently backcomb each dread to create texture.
3. Section the dreads at the crown into a thick pad ponytail, wrapping the outer dreads around at the base of the ponytail.
4. Use Alterna Haircare BAMBOO Style Form Sculpting Clay to create additional separation at the ends of each dread. -Via Alterna

All in all, the look was definitely the craziest and most fun I saw the entire FW15 NY Fashion Week!
