Christian Siriano’s Mediterranean vacation-inspired Spring 2010 runway show, hair and makeup were relatively simple, especially when compared to Siriano’s “Goldfinger” look of last season. For Spring, the look features a sleek, sophisticated, ponytail look, and nude/bronze face.
The sleek and somewhat severe, slicked-back pony, was created by Antoinette Beenders, VP Global Director for Aveda. She said she was inspired by Siriano’s watery, ocean-inspired creations, and wanted the hair to coordinate with that look. Beenders pulled hair into a sleek ponytail and layered pin curls on top. Then, the ponytail was roughed up a bit so that there was texture — wavy and straight. She used Aveda Air Control Hair Spray and Pure Abundance Hair Spray to set the look in place. The finished look reminds me of a modern mermaid!
