Christo Fifth Avenue for New York Fashion Week
Gearing up for Fashion Week kicked off with the wonderful opportunity for the Christo NYC Team to provide make-up and hair styling for rapper/producer Eve for not one, but two events.
The first was “Rock the Bells” show in NJ and the second was for “BET Cypher” in Brooklyn. One of her favorite Curlisto product was the Unruly Paste, which was great for taming fly-aways, especially along the hairline. For Fashion Night Out hair and make-up was done by the Christo NYC Team for Erin Wilhelmi of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Miss NY USA Johanna Sambucini, Megan Steedle of Boardwalk Empire and Twilight, and actresses Toni Trucks, Erin Cummings and Valorie Curry.
With the knowledge that Toni Trucks would have a busy week of styling ahead of her Christo offered her the Anti-Frizz Sea Treatment. Although she does not normally experience frizz this non-chemical treatment is beneficial and favored by most celebrities that constantly have heat tool styling as it revives the hair. This treatment stimulates the scalp creating an environment for healthy hair growth, as well as restores nutrients in the hair shaft leaving hair soft and shiny.
Many of the celebrities opted for more of an updo hairstyle. so the stylists’ products of choice to maintain the sleek and frizz-free look were: Straight Time Glaze to protect the hair against heat tools damage, Unruly Paste to style or sleek the hair into shape, Finishing Pomade, which is an anti-frizz that tames fly-aways (perfect for the humid night that was FNO!), Glow & Shine, which gives brilliant shine without added weight and Shaping Spray for the final hold. For the Farah Angsana show at MBFW the hairstyle, inspired by the Amazon, was a sleek high ponytail, so we used the Shaping Spray, which contains sunscreen agents to provide volume, lift, and hold without ever flaking and Glow & Shine to finish the look.
