The barrettes by TIGI for the Libertine New York Fashion Week Fall 2016 show came in pops of color, shapes and sizes and we can expect to see this fun spot on idea catch on. “The hair,” said Thomas Osborn, TIGI’s US Session and Creative Director, “was an untroubled chic look that included a messy one-sided braid with a natural texture on the other side and the whimsical barrettes decorating the heads here and there, randomly at the back.” Brilliant. All shades of pink furs, from pale to hot, are a trend for Fall, as this winner with hot pinks at the edgy stunning show, which included some fur shoes tdf.  More for her and him from this fabulous Libertine show designed by Johnson Hartig, click HERE

This beautiful bouffant with a 2016 vibe is “the classic bombshell bouffant with a playful bad girl attitude,” said Ammon Carver, L’Anza, of his Brigitte Bardot-inspired hair at the 5:31 Jerome Presentation for New York Fashion Week Fall 2016. The sexy hair with an edge is full and voluminous, created for the women who dare to wear it.   The long pointy nails, by Rose, Dermelect, had halographic glitter, looking like the night sky. Six colors on top and five on the underside of the nails were used.   For more versions and details of the hair, and the nails, click HERE
