Laurent Philippon, lead hair stylist for Bumble and Bumble, crafted punk meets Victorian tresses, full of texture, but not too big. "The Karen Walker girl this season is definitely an urban girl who has an urban life with a lot of things to do, and is very style conscious, but doesn't have time to do her hair," Philippon tells me, "It's all about reflecting an attitude." Philippon started by back combing the back of the head, then flat ironing and brushing it out so it doesn't actually look back combed, but rather gives volume and texture to the hair with a mix of Semi Sumo wax and hair powder.
The nail, by the genius Jin Soon Choi, was a delicate grey-white color using Jin Soon's Power Coat base coat, two coats of Kookie White, and then sealed with Top Gloss top coat.
