1. Get dirty.
"This style started as an homage to Andy Warhol's cronies from the Factory days," explains hairstylist DJ Riggs, who co-created the hair look with Nick Irwin, using Catwalk by Tigi products. "It's almost meant to look seedy, so we have been styling the models' hair without washing it first." To prep strands, Riggs and his team liberally sprayed Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo on greasy roots until hair "felt gummy."
2. Braid and roll.
To create the faux-bob-effect (seen, left), Riggs and his team French-braided the bottom half of each of the models' hair, so that everyone had a nape of the neck twist. Then, he used hot rollers to set the top sections of strands to create volume. "Hair just has a longer memory when you use curlers," explains Riggs. "And since we are styling the girls to emulate a degree of Chris's quirkiness, setting strands is the easy way to build shape and texture in one go." DIYers, take note: "The key to avoiding a very 'done' end result with rollers, is to curl the sections of hair in different directions," he adds.
3. Pin it away.
"To enhance the shape of this bigger-than-life silhouette, pin the top pieces into the shape of a faux bob," finishes Riggs. To create height, he back-brushed strands and secured hair over the braids to create a "wiggy" effect.
4. Green eyes.
"Andy Warhol's friend, Candy Darling, was the muse for this collection," notes Lancôme makeup artist, Daniel Martin. "So, I interpreted that as beautiful skin with hits of color." To start, models' faces were prepped using Clarisonic brushes. "Then, I used this green eye palette (Color Design in Vert Tendresse), and gradated dark and light sea-foam shades across the lids." If playing with chartreuse makeup makes you feel green: "Start with just an emerald eyeliner, that's the easiest way to learn how to wear brighter pigments," adds Martin.
5. Pops of color.
After coating lashes with "lots of Hypnôse Doll Lashes Mascara," Martin concentrated tangerine blush on the upper cheekbones of the models and dabbed an as-yet-unreleased Lancôme Love Lipstick in Sequence of Love on pouts. "Pushing lip color into place ensures that the edges stay undefined and creates a more youthful appearance," Martin notes.
