Concept LA Fashion Week Beauty

On March 7 Beauty Launchpad joined Wella at Concept Studios for a behind-the-scenes look at the 2015 Winter Collections of Mike Vensel, Camila Castillo, Elaine Marie, Jen Awad and Camelia Skikos & Whichkim.

The event kicked off with the Mike Vensel presentation. The hairstyles, created by Wella's Aubrey Loots, were sleek and sophisticated, complimenting the elegant silhouettes designed by Vensel. Some styles were adorned with paper crowns as a finishing touch. Makeup artists led by Melanie Mills blended a glowing dewey and bronzed look.
