Four years ago stylists Amy O'Brien and Jill Sires attended a Matrix training in Palm Springs, CA. They were so inspired by Matrix's Chairs of Change program that they decided to create an event to showcase local talent and give back to their community. Rock the Look: Stylists Giving Back was born! The event which will take place on May 17, 2014 in Waterloo, Iowa, will host around 500 attendees and benefit St. Jude Children Research Hospital.

To compliment this collection, Jenny Balding created a look with a naturally disheveled, rock-n-roll, effortless feel. "This is a woman who wouldn't spend much time on her hair, but looks effortlessly sexy and disheveled," says Balding. "Enhancing natural beauty was key for this look."

The inspiration behind the fashion at Naeem Khan's Fall 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week included the sexy, dark world of cabaret and the daring, confident attitude that defined it. With this in mind, stylist Sally Hershberger for Sally Hershberger Professional Haircare created a bold, high-shine up-do with a sleek side part.
Redken Creative Consultant Guido kept the hair simple and youthful for the Marc by Marc Jacobs presentation at New York Fashion Week with two tight clean braids that were slightly disheveled by black headbands. In order to counter the more sophisticated collection this season, Guido opted for a hairstyle reminiscent of grammar school and cartoon characters. Jagged, messy partings and Redken's new flex texturizers gave the style a rebellious edge, making it clear to the bystander that the Marc girl is not your typical girl next door.
Muse to Surrealist photographer Man Ray, the celebrated Vogue cover model-turned-pioneering-photojournalist Lee Miller was the inspiration behind the easy-but-edgy hair looks designed by Didier Malige of Art Partner for the highly anticipated Band of Outsiders Fall/Winter 2014 collection. The collection was shown at the brand’s new store in the heart of Soho.
At the beauty parlour, we wanted to design looks from the Spring / Summer 2014 Runways and produce beautiful and importantly, wearable, styles for the everyday girl. For the styles below, we used clients at Jennie Kay Beauty to reinforce just how easily these looks and trends can be created.
If you’re wondering if the obviously-not-from-nature colorful hair trend is here to stay, the answer seems to be … yes. Backstage at the Hervé Léger show Bumble and bumble lead stylist Laurent Philippon created sleek high ponytails embellished with streaks of either blue or orange extensions. They were applied at the base of the hairline and then secured into the ponytail. For added shine, he spritzed on Bumble and bumble Does It All Sheen Spray. [pagebreak] The Makeup
The MILLY by Michelle Smith AW14 collection at New York Fashion Week showcased femininity with hints of toughness. Designer Michelle Smith describes the collection as “extremely luxurious and feminine with a bit of an edge. The mixture of precious materials and contrasting textures reflects the overall theme of effortless yet opulent style and beauty.” The color palette of the collection begins with camel colors and soft shades of pink similar to a ballerina slipper.
The Eckhaus Latta AW14 collection revealed a daring exploration of texture and shape, formed using house-loomed woolens and innovative construction techniques. Unveiled as a rare palette of elevated neutrals and strikingly bold tones of lilac and red, beauty is an extension of the unprecedented vision showcased through this collection.
