Backstage at Alexandre Herchcovitch Fall 2011 Show with Rolando Beauchamp for Bumble and Bumble

Of all the hairstyles I saw this season at Fashion Week, I’m giving the most creative award to Bumble and bumble for the Alexandre Herchcovitch Fall 2011 fashion show. Covering half the face, lead stylist, Rolando Beauchamp (for Bumble and Bumble) created a 6-way, side braid. Prompted by Alexandre Herchcovitch collection, which was inspired by violent forces of nature and circled around texture and layering. I mean seriously, is it just me or is this a masterpiece?

To show you what went into creating this look, I was able to capture a model having it done (alongside makeup and nails) in 15minutes! While that may be incredibly long for a YouTube video, it’s remarkable this model was able to undergo all three so quickly. And no, having hair, makeup and nails done all at the same time is generally not practiced– this particular model ran late in between shows, so you get to witness the abridged version of what generally happens backstage.

As you can see it takes about 6 hands to create that braid (I would not try it at home without assistance), although the look is easily translatable to the everyday woman—with some modifications. Create a side part, then make

HAIR: Lead Stylist Rolando Beauchamp for Bumble and Bumble

Rolando wanted to create a messy, rough ponytail that seemed carelessly glamorous. The persona being the girl who did a quick fix up to last nights go-out-hair and managed to make it look effortlessly chic. The trick to avoid bumps when putting your hair up in a ponytail, is to lift your chin up and tilt your head back.

Rolando created the look by spraying Bumble and bumble ‘Thickening Hairspray’ to add volume and texture and height at the crown.  Rolando recommends, “using your hands, not a brush” and to rake hair back with your fingers, then secure with a simple black elastic.  Finish with Bumble and bumble’s ‘Does it All Styling Spray‘.

MAKEUP: Lead Stylist Jenna Menard for Shiseido

Jenna Menard for Shiseido led the artistry team doing a strong, matte, red lip using Shiseido lipstick in Valentine.  To keep the accent on the bold lips, Menard was minimal on the rest of the makeup, using no eyeliner and just a hint of peach shimmer around the eyes.
