For Ben & Lee Copperwheat's Fall 2010 show, lead hairstylist Ryan Taniguchi created a subtle look for both men and women to contrast with the collection?s vivid prints.
Men's hair was styled swept up and away from the face while the women?s hair was pulled back in a low, naturally wavy ponytail with a side part.
Lead hairstylist Amy Farid used an unpredictable prop for Richie Rich's A'muse Fall 2010 show. Wigs were used to add flavor and originality. Of course, no wig looked alike. In a hectic backstage Farid headed a team working on wigs ranging from all colors of the rainbow and styled completely different.
On the beauty scene, lead makeup artist Ralph Siciliano added a pop of color to each and everyone of the models. Below Ralph Siciliano demonstrates to his team how to do the makeup:
On the runway:
Lead hairstylist Amy Farid created sleek pulled back look for Davidelison?s Fall 2010 show at NYFW. Parting hair down the middle, a hair braid was added at the neck as an accent to add to the look of the collection.
For Mara Hoffman?s bohemian inspired Fall 2010 collection, lead hairstylist Martin-Christopher Harper gave youth to a classic look. Harper explains that with a collection full of vibrant energy, colors, and shapes, a more fluid hairstyle was needed. "Old is the new young!" says Harper. "There is an incorporation of strong combination of depth and texture."
Frank Tell?s Fall 2010 collection tells a story of ?Primitive Futuristic?. Influenced by Star Trek and Cannibal Holocaust, the collection embodied a palette of neutral colors. Lead hairstylist Amy Farid added a low, sleek pony with hair parted in the middle. Farid explains that, "we envisioned the girls being these Mad Max-esque warriors?.
Lead hairstylist Martin-Christopher Harper took cues from Teflar?s Fall 2010 collection to go ?great lengths?.
Using edgy extensions, Harper?s vision created multi-colored dreads and longer pieces made to compliment Teflar?s collection.
Backstage at Odyn Vovk?s Fall 2010 show, lead hairstylist Amy Farid helped get ready in the venue?s basement ? a dungeon: classic Odyn Vovk style. The designer also collaborated with Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons to add some edgy pieces to the collection. Inspiring the collection Farid explains that, ?the collection is motivated by Abu Dhabi and the whole influx of being this deserted place that became out of nothing, like Las Vegas. They?ve gone there and prospered, lost everything, because of the recession?. The hair trend: Extremely sleek, tight to the head, sharp, layered, and a littler dirty.

Lead hairstylist Amy Farid cranked up the edge at LNA?s Fall 2010 show at Milk. LNA presented a biker theme with a hard yet feminine outlook. Adding to the line?s badass appeal, Farid created a wet and tousled look parted to the side to add a hard-hitting attitude.
A deep look into Amanda Pratt's latest promo became a collaborative effort with the book's designer Jenny Tran. Together they worked to create a story through pictures in a narrative entitled 'We are Smiling'. Look out for the collaboration of these two minds in the near future!
With a new website, portfolio, and mailer coming out this February, it's all smiles for Kate Powers!
