With Bedhead and Stiletto Nails, Honor Sexes Up the Girlie Girl
It was all about the juxtaposition of edge and femininity at Honor's Spring 2014 show, and this was obvious in everything from the hair to the nails. James Pecis, lead hairstylist for Beauty.com, wanted their hair to look like the girls had "taken a roll in the hay." Tiny flowers dotted down into an asymmetrical ponytail that was high on texture. "We've got a semismooth ponytail, and when that ends, there's a lot of curls," Pecis explained.
Nails were painted a champagne pink dubbed La Vie en Rose (available Spring 2014) from Deborah Lippmann, and they were sprinkled with rhinestones to create an easy half-french manicure. But the sexiness came from the short stiletto shape, which created a literal edge. Romy Soleimani worked with Kevyn Aucoin makeup to conceptualize a soft, smoky, feminine look. "It's like looking through gauze," she explained.
