Of the look at Badgley Mischka's Spring 2014 show, lead stylist Peter Gray for Moroccanoil said, "Well, the designers kept talking about Jacque Henri Lartigue's seaside photography and the city of Atlantis, so we all agreed on mermaids. "Gray set the models' hair in pin curls before brushing them out and twisting them into a low roll. The secret to keeping the 'do in place? A tiny braid at the nape of the neck was used to anchor the pins. "We're only using four to five pins in each of the girls' hair!" Gray quipped.
Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics focused on watery blues and coral lips for the makeup look. "Coral is a great color for Spring," he said. "It's fun, it's friendly, and it looks good on everyone." Even the nails, by manicure leading lady Deborah Lippmann, kept with the mermaid theme. Two coats of Blue Orchid were topped with one coat of La Vie En Rose (both out Spring 2014), creating an iridescent manicure that was reminiscent of fish scales.
