The look for the cool guy/gal label Timo Weiland this outing-was an "homage" to the pinky spirit of ST Mark's Place in NYC---and imo, when we spent our junior year abroad in college-across the Pond...the attire of those that coulda been cast in "London Calling"-if the Clash had made a video, back then.

Textured, swept aside hair, coiffed by lead stylist Joseph DiMaggio and his team---got that way for the women---with L'Oréal Professionnel products:

 Curl Satin, applied throughout, then hair sectioned in the models' natural parts,

...the dry shampoo Fresh Dust applied for volume---with hair then put back behind ears...

...with more lift via Volume Expand Root Lift Spray---put on the stylists' hair then warmed up before rubbing at the roots-finished off with the strong hold hairspray Infinium 3.

Gals with long locks, got low ponytails.

Men's hair got the lived-in texture with Clay or Mat, Volume Expand Root Lift Spray and Mytic Oil for Shine. Strong Gel for hold and then Infinium 3 or Perfect Shimmer for the finish. All products L'Oreal Professionnel.

We thought the nails were genius!!! Our latest obsession, as it were-the imPRESS press-on manicure by Broadway Nails.

Literally idiot proof-we applied our shiny burgundy set on the subway...not that anyone blinked an eyeball...the peel off back has a tiny tab to grab...

enclosed alcohol pad-clean off nails first-for the ultimate hold- manicures like this can last up to a week.

These 'nails' can be filed/shaped

ADDED PLUS-no glues or acetone removers necessary-easy to remove and a great way to dress up one's hands for a night on the a flash.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in mate black was applied to inner rims, then run over with a cotton swab for a sleep-in look-in a good way.

Lancome Definicils Mascara in black and shades from the best selling Urban Decay Naked palettes and tokidoki Prisma Gloss in Donutella- also made the gals' eyes pop.
