“This look represents the romantic, European lady with an active lifestyle. The hair is loose, undone and pretty. The makeup is natural to imply a natural glow achieved from the sun,” says the TIGI team.
“We started by spraying the hair with TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Firm Hold Hairspray and blow-drying it around the crown to thicken and texturize. Then, brushing the top section back, we created a twist in the center of the head to prep the section for loose waves. After, the hair was pulled into layers - two top layers and two layers on either side of the head – and sprayed with TIGI Catwalk Session Series Work It Hairspray.
CATWALK BY TIGI for MAISONETTE 1977 SPRING/SUMMER 2012 We then began French braiding the hair toward the crown of the head. The braid starts out smaller and tighter, gets chunkier and looser and then becomes tight at the bottom again – for a fishtail effect. To finish, we sprayed the braid with TIGI Catwalk Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo to toughen it and give a messier, natural look. It was then blow-dried so that it swelled and became bigger.
The front pieces were sprayed with TIGI Catwalk Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo and TIGI Catwalk Session Series Wet Look Gel to texturize and the twisted top layer was put into Velcro rollers. After removing the rollers, we used a tong to create loose, soft curls for a graphic front. To finish the look we sprayed the hair with TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray.
Light make-up was applied to imply a subtle, natural Sunkissed glow achieved effortlessly through an active, outdoor lifestyle, without effort. We applied TIGI Satin Foundation in a bisque shade all over the face using a brush. Eyes were prepped with an eyeshadow base and pink blush was applied for understated, barely-there color. We gave the models a pearly nude lip and finished the face with a light powder to create softness.”
