Milano, here we come! First up, Blumarine’s bright, Caribbean-inspired show. A reggae/Caribbean version of MJ’s Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, opened the show and the tie-dye-clad models graced the catwalk. Sam McKnight for Pantene created one of my favourite looks so far, the kind of hair every girl wishes they had; it bounced and wafted down the catwalk so perfectly, it totally distracted me from the clothes (well I am a beauty editor!) ‘This girl is expensive, sexy and you’ll find her at the rich end of the beach, in fact she’s more about being by the pool than the beach – she also spends time and money on her hair,’ Sam told Grazia. Loose waves were created with curling tongs, set with Pantene Volume and Body Mousse (girls with thinner hair were given extensions for thickness) and after the hair was curled, it was brushed out to leave a loose wave that bobbed perfectly down the catwalk. Similar to the hair, the make-up was based on a girl on holiday and as the collection was so bright the face was carefully bronzed and sculpted to define the features.
