Backstage at Alice + Olivia #NYFW  This season Stacey Bendet was inspired by the “American Girl”, a carefree collegiate with an american twist. This girls were adorable, and all bunned out..  Hair by TIGI, make up by Stila, look by CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin                      Tips for creating this preppy-meets-pretty do:  1. Start with straight dry hair. Run a flatiron through the top portion of your hair, making it even straighter. Spray with CATWALK by TIGI Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray.  2. Once hair is BONE STRAIGHT, create a side part above the left eyebrow. Smooth hair over (not behind) your right ear and pull it into a tight low pony at the nape of your neck.  3. Work CATWALK by TIGI Curlesque Strong Hold Mousse through the pony and blow dry over to prevent fly aways and provide hold.  4. Secure bottom of pony with another elastic, and gently twist hair into a perfect chignon.  5. Tuck in any ends, secure with pins. Spay with CATWALK by TIGI Session Series Finishing Spray. And there you go.  Images Cult of Pretty  -Kristin
