Twisted hair at Marni Milan Fashion Show 2014

Marni with bird’s nest hair – To create the loved and pale skin at Marni, makeup artist Tom Pecheux used two lipsticks and an eye cream.

“We wanted to give a borderline effect of a wax mannequin,” he explained. Using MAC Cosmetics, he prepared skin with ‘Studio’ Moisture Tint. Using the natural lipstick shade ‘Siss, he contoured cheekbones and temples. ”Myself’ lipstick was applied to lips and the apples of the cheeks.

A gray-mauve Cream Colour Base was put on the cheekbones, eyelids, eyebrows and arounf the lips.

“The color’s a bit twisted — instead of the gold, silver or rosy shades that we usually use to highlight the skin, it’s a bit gray,” he said.

Hairstylist Paul Hanlon crafted a multi-textured style looking like tree roots, branches or bird nests.  “It’s not pretty. There’s a kind of twistiness to it,” Paul said.

To create an extremely flat and shiny crown, hair was loaded with mousse, twisted around the head and covered with a mesh cap. “The effect is like a woven wicker basket or a bird’s nest, like if you had a towel on your head and kept twisting it around – you can’t tell where the hair stops or starts,” Hanlon said.

Free-hanging lengths were poured with Tigi Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day. The hair from the crown was sprayed with L’Oréal Elnett and sculpted to reference to tree branches.
