Backstage Hair/Makeup MIZANI, MAKEUP FOREVER Victor dE Souza #NYFW S/S 2015

The Ballroom: 4 West 43rd Street/NYC














 Coupled with MIZANI styling products, he came up with the idea to create triangle shapes, with an unconventional, coiled texture to produce a magnificent reverse (def. eye-catching) “A-Line Bob.” 
For the distinctly editorial 'monochromatic -unity' look of the models for Victor dE Souza's S/S 2015 collection, hair stylist-entrepreneur (DOP DOP Salon)-and MIZANI Celebrity Artist  Caesar Ramirez (and his team), pretty much stayed up all night, crafting 20 wigs -
“I wanted to design a dimensional style in this icy, arctic shade for a dramatic look…using MIZANI products to create the bold, textured style was a perfect match, as the brand has always been a leader in the professional textured market. I loved having the opportunity to work with Victor because he brings drama and his pieces are incredibly theatrical, so it really inspires my creativity.” And lack of sleep-but hey, it's NYFW.







How to get the look:
  • Start by applying a small amount of MIZANI Iron Curl Heat Styling and Curling Cream to the entire head of hair, create a center part and brush smooth to start the shape
  • Take 3" hair pins and wrap small strands of hair in a “figure 8” around the pin, holding the ends in place
  • Once the hair is wrapped around pins, spray it with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist and heat with a flat iron for a few seconds; repeat the process until your entire head is covered with pins
  • Next, remove the hair pins and brush it out to reveal a very teased and textured head of hair
  • Cut the length very blunt into a triangle shape, frame the face and create a sharp line to reveal a cutting-edge A-Line Bob
  • Lastly, spray the entire head with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist to set the shape, and voila

WHAT ELSE:

The MAKE UP FOREVER Professional-blanked out key features ---and with the aid of tinted contacts-gave the models an ethereal, pigment-less look…to go along with the "albino" goal. It is striking in its own way.


Camo Cream under the eye and on the brow….and fiber lash primer-upper+lower added a lot of length to fluttery eyelashes-and added the  fleshy color. Lips were rosy pink-via Rouge Artist Pailette


serious length to eyelashes….pink HD blush on cheeks and eyelids…gave it an icy-vibe with flush of Spring, imo.

Male model-wearing a ball gown-is an interesting guy-who liked the opportunity to explore a different role for himself…to be another person. Reminds us of what a lot of actors like about acting.




really see how much length the primer added
