TEEN VOGUE w/ Kiernan Shipka Rock 'n' Roll Chic -
We’re in Brooklyn with our lovely celebrity teen talent Kiernan Shipka for a Teen Vogue beauty story. The idea is a young, modern, daring do with a strong rock n roll / gothic feel tempered by soft, feminine, relaxed chic.
Marie Suter our Creative Director was very up for the hair texture to be styled edgy, with a wet-look & super shine. The styling by Patrick Mackie was a great mix of lace and leather, hard and soft fabrics, contrasting patterns and feel. Talented makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi and I had fun with the hair and makeup, ramping up the goth, rock ‘n’ roll and pushing limits.
To create the rock ‘n’ roll style I combed the long hair slick against the head to the back and contrasted it with a free flowing quiff on top of Kiernan’s head that I could then shape and make fall in ordered disarray. Jason Kibbler our photographer shot great image after great image. This beautiful summer day went by smooth and fast with a very cool team.
Tools & Products I used to create this look:
I wet the hair and combed through to detangle and get rid of any knots.
I added a few drop of René Furterer Karité for super silky tips and a soft, pliable texture.
Afterwards, I added a good amount of René Furterer Volumea, at the roots and mid-length to create much more volume than I needed. I did this, as I knew that for my final texture I would need to use an oil for a wet -look and it would dampen down the volume.
Using a round brush I blow-dried the hair and prepared the texture in an organized and controlled base to start from.
For the final run, to create the style, I used a fair amount of René Furterer Complexe-5 and combed it through with a wide toothed comb making sure that the oil was evenly distributed so the texture was consistent and ready for me shape for the final look. The added benefit of being able to use the Complexe-5 for this style is a great hair-spa treatment and style in one!
The daring-do was completed with a few hairpins that I used to keep the long hair slicked back in place at the back of the head and the neck clean of flyaway hairs. I left the hair loose at the top of Kiernan’s head so I could shape it into a quiff and pick out a few strands, some to fall down at the front and other’s picked out at the slicked back sides.
