The Hair: Redken’s Guts 10 Hair Spray was first applied to the model’s roots before they received a rough blow dry. Once completely dry, the tresses were curled it either a curling iron or velcro rollers at the ends added texture and body with the help of  the Thickening Lotion 06 that was applied from the middle to the ends. The curls were broken up and some models received EZ Hair Pro extensions on the sides of the head for added thickness before wrapping the girls’ necks and hair to create a natural bend and sealed with a spritz of the Fashion Work 12 Hairspray.

The Makeup: For a purely sultry look, Gucci Westman created a gritty smoky eye with the help of Revlon’s ColorStay Shadow Stick in Volcanic before layering on the darkest hue from the ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow Quad in Free Spirit. With aa quick one near the lashes with the ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen before adding faux lashes and blending them with the natural ones using the PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara. The skin was kept soft in contrast to the hard eye, highlighted with the Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes with a flush of color with the Baby Stick for Lips & Cheeks in Tahitian. The pout was kept nude as well with a blend of the ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Front Row and Private Viewing and softened with the ColorBurst Lip Butter in Crème Brulee.

The Mani: Tips were kept easy and neutral thanks to Jin Soon Choi who applied two coats of Revlon’s ColorStay Nail Enamel in Trade Winds.
