Backstage Beauty Tips From Hervé Léger Spring 2016

Fashion brand Hervé Léger premiered their Spring 2016 collection this past weekend at New York Fashion Week, but we are even more obsessed with the hair and makeup as we are with the clothes. While backstage, we learned some serious tips and tricks from the professionals and partners at TRESemmé and ZOYA, from how to create the perfect braided crown ponytail to getting a clean, polished manicure.

“It’s the 30th anniversary of Hervé Léger so we’re embracing a new direction with a more organic quality in our handwork and elements of nature incorporated into the collection,” said Hervé Léger Chief Creative Officer Lubov Azria. “We wanted to collaborate with Orlando [Pita] on a softer braid and really play with texture more than we have before.”
“It’s a new, softer look for our Hervé Léger girl this season,” explained Orlando Pita, New York Fashion Week Ambassador for TRESemmé. “She’s still creating a strong statement with the braid, but we’ve played with making this more relaxed with purposely pulled out with loose pieces that frame her face and create beautiful movement when she walks.”
Below, Orlando Pita gives us some tips on how to recreate this beautiful look!
