The Three-Step Braid Makes a Second Appearance

viktorandrolfbraidThe “one, two, three” braid—it’s a plait hair pro Luigi Murenu has been making a case for this season. We saw a similar look at Emilio Pucci, but here he lost the elastic in favor of a more disheveled, “last moment feeling.” To achieve the dry texture, he worked Kérastase Mousse Bouffante through strands before blowing them dry and employing a curling iron for texture. Then he divided the length into three sections and wove them loosely together near the nape, finishing with a generous amount of hairspray to ensure plenty of hold. Forgoing the band was a feat in and of itself, and the finished product perfectly complemented the designers’ more accessible offerings.

Pat McGrath kept the makeup equally as attainable. Aside from beautiful skin, a slight flush, and “rich” brows, only a gray-brown shadow was washed around the eyes. “It looks like the street in there,” she said of the show space located in the Jardin des Tuileries. “The girls should just look like they are simply walking down the street.”
