In amongst all the madness of any given Fashion Week, a little light-hearted (or sugar-based) respite never fails to go down an absolute treat, be it a Caramel Krispy Kreme (or better a cronut), some good tunes backstage or even a quick foot rub from an obliging manicurist. Honestly, it’s all about the small things that keep the fash and beauty-pack going. So, you can imagine how utterly over the moon we were to head on down to Stella McCartney’s LFW show on Tuesday. With real athletes (no models allowed) taking part in live yoga, spinning and synchronized swimming, the energy was electric, energetic and just what we needed post a manic 5 days of shows.
What’s more, the beauty look was, dare we say it, ‘sporty’, but with a fresher, more updated spin. Aveda’s Global Hair Artist, Antoinette Beenders, was on hand to transform the girls into ‘high-performance’ beauties. Hair was prepped after washing and conditioning using Aveda’s Abundance, Be Curly or Smooth Infusion depending on the girl’s hair type and the finished look was an uber-sleek ponytail and sharp braided buns. Totally gorgeous! The hair guru said, “It may all look the same, but every girl has been prepped in a bespoke way to match her hair type.” There's nothing we love more than a bit of bespoke beauty...
