Backstage at NYFW: Last Minute Buns at Alice + Olivia
We've seen Project Runway, we know that everything comes down to the wire before a fashion show. But I was still surprised to discover that TIGI Creative Director Nick Irwin didnt decide on the Alice + Olivia look until the night before the show!
Procrastination certainly suits him wellthe final product a "preppy meets pretty" bun, was a refreshing departure from what we've seen at Fashion Week thus far. Each bun was pristine and perfect, without a hair out of place. It was a totally put-together style, even if it happened at the last minute.
Expert Tip: To stop your baby hairs from popping out of your bun apply mousse (like Catwalk Curlesque Mousse) to a dry ponytail, and twist the hair while drying the mousee itself before making your chignon.
