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.

IMG_6916

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!

The Blonds S/S 2012

The Blonds S-S 2012 139

I found it very fitting that one of the most theatrical and entertaining shows of NY Fashion Week took place on the last (for me) day. The Blonds’ shows are always a sight to see, as much a true spectacle as one can find during fashion week.

This season, I not only photographed the runway show, but ventured backstage as well. There, I found hair and nails just as show-stopping as the clothes.

CND nail tech Kristina Eastabrooks created a 20 sets of glamorous, sparkling nail tips for the show– that took over 100 hours to complete! The details on the nails, which featured materials like crushed geometric glass, 24k gold leafing, Swarovski crystals, and hand painted designs, were truly amazing:

Dennis Lanni for Bumble and Bumble created “Jessica Rabbit”, curvy big hair that corresponded with the show’s classic 60’s heyday Playboy theme.

The Blonds S-S 2012 67

Dennis himself is a huge fan of 60’s era beauty, and it’s “big healthy hair”, but also insured the look didn’t veer too far into “pageant hair” territory.

To get the look:

Hair was sprayed down with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray. A large barrel curling iron was then used to curl hair, which was then pinned on the top of the head to set.

Once pins are removed, hair was back-combed with a fine bristled (not nylon!) brush. Hair was finished with Spray de Mode for hold.
