L.A.M.B. and L'Oreal at NYC Fashion Week Feb.17


The L'Oreal Professionel Fashion Week Team with Lead Stylist Danilo styled the models for Gwen at LAMB NYC Fashion Week.




Gwen Stefani's LAMB AW11 collection on Feb 17th was divided into six different looks, gangs of girls. 
Ragga girl, soldier girl, English girl, glamour girl, buffalo girl.


The hair was created using a lot of extensions....we put the hair in a ponytail first. Then we added extensions to add volume and length. We braided some of the hair and created an interesting texture. For Gwen's look below which was also done on other models follow these easy tricks.... apply L'Oreal Professionel Gele Riche from Texture Expert on the roots and brush and pull the hair back into a high ponytail and and then pin the hair into a bun. Fill a hairnet with extension hair and then pin it closed and shape it into a round shape and pin it to the head. Next take a small piece of long extension and wrap it around the base...pin and spray with L'Oreal Professionel Infinium hold 3 . Square the shape a bit with your hands and voila !



Gwen's hairdresser and friend of 17 years , Danilo and me.  I am so happy I was able to meet him and work with him .
All models were coloured using L'Oreal Professionel INOA

Jenny Packham NYC Fashion Week Feb 14th


The hairstyle for this collection was soft with a slight wave. We used all L'Oreal Professionel Texture Expert. Mousse Voulpte for soft volume and Infinium Hairspray hold #2. Perfect Shimmer was added to finish and add shine.
 Lead Hairdresser Leonardo Minnetti and the L'Oreal NY Fashion Week Team styled the models with a large barrel iron, clipped with the ends out then after make up was brushed out. Beautiful, Simple...




The makeup was all airbrushed by Temptu, hues were peachy- gold, creating flawless, effortless  glamour.
