  • MBFWA ’13: Camilla and Marc’s Fresh Face and Sleek Strands

    Mon, 8 April 2013 4:06PM

    The first show to kick off Fashion Week was a lesson in wearable (for you and me, not just the Supes’ on the runway) hair and makeup. Insert excitable-jig around my desk here. Image: Napoleon Perdis/zeduce.org Ok, enough dancing. Let’s talk details. First up, the face: makeup artist Napoleon Perdis calls it “Nude, nude, nude. But with some… more

    Thu, 17 February 2011 9:20AM

    Seriously, Primpers, what’s not to love about this hair style? The crimped mid-section gives it just the right amount of edginess, while the shiny, sleek roots give it sophistication, without looking stuffy.  Somewhere between Ali MacGraw meets Erin Wasson, we’re dubbing it beach hair for fancy grown-ups. Here are all the tips and tricks you… more

  • RAFW: Nicola Finetti’s Fresh 60’s Makeup and Crisp French Twists

    Thu, 6 May 2010 11:59AM

    Luminous skin, glossy lips and crisp French twists were all the rage at Nicola Finetti’s SS 10/11 show. And yep, there was crimping involved. Again. But this time around, the crimping was subtle, adding a different texture to the updo. Finish with a pop of pink on the cheeks and 60’s inspired eyes and you’ve… more



  • RAFW: Camilla’s slightly zany, ethereal crimped hair

    Tue, 4 May 2010 9:40AM

    With bright colours dominating the makeup for Camilla’s SS 10/11 collection, the theme of fantasy and theatrics called for somewhat out there hair ‘dos, too. And the style for one of the four featured looks, Pastel, was just that: a little bit whack, big and voluminous, and totally crimp-tastic. The hair ‘do, created by Joico’s International… more



  • RAFW: How To: Rachel Gilbert’s crimped, beehive ‘do

    Mon, 3 May 2010 6:20PM

    Looking a little Mad Men-esque, the Rachel Gilbert models’ hit the runway channelling the 60’s with a sleek and high beehive ‘do. What separated this style from the beehives seen on the Prada and Giles A/W ’10 runway was the slight crimping through the bun area. Instead of being polished and ultra feminine, this beehive… more



  • Become a sophisticated crimper

    Tue, 13 April 2010 12:54PM

    I remember seeing crimped hair on the runways last year and I loved Marion Cotillard’s crimps at the Cesar Film Awards this year, but I’m still a little nervous to try it out. Any hints for a first time crimper? Great memory Meggie; crimps were definitely all the runway rage last year. And when Givenchy and… more

    Wed, 29 April 2009 1:43PM

    Ahh, finally. The crimpers are out. We saw them all over the international catwalks and now the ‘Strayan’s have picked up on it. Specifically, Lance Blanchette who created the hair direction for Joico at Nicola Finetti. (And who, uh, incidentally is a Canadian. Ahem.) “Contradiction was the main aim,” he said of the intricate crimped ponytail… more
