A New Twist on the Chignon at Zac Posen
by Xiao Lim
Japanese elegance was the word last night at Zac Posen’s fall show, and makeup artist Kabuki and hairstylist Luigi Murenu both built their looks around the kimono sleeves and brocade fabrics in the collection.
While Kabuki’s look encompassed a lined eye and red-lacquered M.A.C. lip (“I am combining elements of Lana Turner and Marlene Dietrich, but say they’re on the Orient Express,” he said backstage), Murenu was going for his version of “couture Japanese princesses or swans.” This translated to stiff, sculptural chignons designed to “elongate the neck” (and further flatter the dipped backs of Posen’s kimono-style dresses). To achieve his gravity-defying twists, Murenu gave models’ hair a smooth finish thanks to liberal amounts of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control. Then, after pulling it all into a high chignon, he blasted it with a runway-proofing hair spray (John Frieda Luxurious Volume Extra Hold Hairspray), and added individual slivers of straightened extensions for a final flourish. “Immaculate and perfect, like Japanese architecture,” he said.
