In summation the hair backstage at Emerson could be described in two words: effortlessly glam. The hair was a traditional low pony tail but to “zhoosh” it up, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa’s National Creative Director and Master Stylist, Zahir Ziani, added a little texture (with a curling iron) and height (think teased volume) to get the effortless glam look. Zahir held the pony sans rubber bands to avoid creases in the hair by wrapping the ponytail with a thin piece of hair and secured with a bobby pin.

Brandon Sun Fall 2013
Master Stylist Zahir Ziani, and the Red Door Spa’s beauty of created an updated bohemian look backstage at Brandon Sun Fall 2013. The hair was a juxtaposition of a low bun in the back and a center part and breathless waves in the front. The Resistance Double Force by Kerastase helped created texture for the tousled look of the bun.
In keeping with the “boho glam” look of the hair, the makeup overall was natural but key aspects glamed it up, mostly the bold eyebrows and clean skin. Key products to achieve this look were Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Tinted Moisturizer, and Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Shimmering Copper, Bellini, and Truffle.
