After the Osklen backstage transformations were documented, I raced over to 12th Avenue to see what was going on at Aveda’s Tibi headquarters. After checking in, it was straight backstage to see what was going on. Aveda’s hair team leader was award winning hair designer Frank Rizzieri who created a cool girls style to reflect the laidback wanderlust of the Tibi girl. The hair was loose, with a slight bend near the ears and a bit of Aveda Shampure dry shampoo to add texture and a bump of volume at the crown. You’ll have instructions on how to get the look at the end of this post. Hair products and tools everywhere! The stars of backstage were Aveda’s Thickening Tonic spray, Shampure dry shampoo, Pure Abundance style prep and Control Force hairspray.
I ran over to catch what was going on in the nail area, where JINsoon was feverishly painting on a pastel spring palette with a twist. The nail was almost bare, with the color at the nail tip. See the nail art on @jinsoon.
I wandered over to the makeup area and Bobbi Brown was actually there painting models. That was a huge thrill. I was lucky enough to get a live demo of Frank Rizzieri showing off how he diid the cool girl hair look for the show on Kristina from Houston’s Pretty Shiny Sparkly blog. The backstage lunch spread from City Bakery featuring to die for cookies and fresh fruit…There were mini-wraps and sandwiches, nuts and bottles of fresh NYC tap water in Vapur bottles with the Aveda label. After a full morning of backstage beauty, it was definitely time for lunch. Here’s the finished hair/makeup look striding down the Tibi runway. You can see the whole collection here.
