F/W 09 NYFW Beauty Inspiration Series - Odile Gilbert & Eva Scrivo for Catherine Malandrino

The Inspiration for Catherine Malandrino's fall 2009 collection, drew on the Surrealist movement, which emerged in the 1930s as a way for artistic ingenuity to uplift the community and inject life back into society. The new Malandrino collection is inspired by the colors of Surrealism, as well as the mood and feelings portrayed by the movement itself. We absolutely loved the details, textures and cuts of the clothes!

To achieve this Surrealist inspired look, Malandrino, Odile Gilbert, and Eva Scrivo collaborated for an end result both unexpected and curious—alluding to the artists of this era. The sleek, sophisticated chignons they sculpted pushed the creative envelope when crafting multiple shapes, while colored extensions and netting added dimension and life to make these updos anything but typical.

Here's how to get the look Step-by-Step:
Odile suggests using a brushable, strong-hold hairspray to maintain control for structured updos, and used Sebastian Professional products in all the looks.

--Prepare hair with Shine Define to protect hair from hot tools used during styling and also leave a shinier finish.

--Tightly comb up hair to the front/top of the head into one ponytail; spray with Sebastian Professional hair spray: Shaper Zero Gravity as you comb, then Re-Shaper to hold.

--Separate the hair (if long) into three sections.
Using extensions, create three-four chignons interweaving pieces from your real hair.

Sebastian Professional RE-SHAPER: Brushable humidity resistant strong hold hairspray.
Sebastian Professional SHAPER ZERO GRAVITY: Dry, Brushable, Lightweight Control Hairspray.
Sebastian Professional SHINE DEFINE: The ultimate versatile hairspray.

For color, Eva Scrivo used Wella Color Touch and Wella Koleston Perfect on the extensions. Color Touch is a gentle and ammonia-free semi-permanent color that allows for bold expression with shades that last through 24 washes. -- RLB
