PFW Diary: Beauty Edition


Nasty Gal’s resident hair genius, Rachel Brady just returned home to L.A. after a whirlwind month of backstage fashion month madness. Check out the last of the lust-worthy hairstyles she created in Paris for Dior, Pascal Millet, Carven, and Haider Ackermann!


Pascal Millet

“The idea behind this collection was apres-ski—what a girl who skis all day at St. Moritz would slip into for a vin chaud at the chalet. The girls dragged long fur stoles down the runway, exhausted no doubt from the day’s leisure sports. The hair was bent all the way around the head at the ears as if she had taken off her googles and headed straight to dinner. Franco Gobbi lead the show and was true to his style keeping things sporty but very feminine.”



“James Pecis continued his winning streak with that undone marcel wave, breaking the code on beach waves. There were gigantic metallic sun dial chokers and cropped flare pants with sky high waists, popped collars, and delicate sequined cropped sweaters with floral appliqué. The ’70s babe is here to stay this season—thank the goddess!”



Raf Simons has secured his throne at Dior this season, bringing his Balenciaga avant garde touch to the classic house.The garments were futuristic animal prints, abstracted and urbanized with masculine tailoring and skin tight leather in slick knee-high boots and waffled jackets in exotic skins. The hair was tightly slicked into gravity defying side ponytails with gobs of luxurious hair added. Guido Palau led the team with his signature perfective style and Peter Phillips’ make-up was an animalistic round cat-eye in deep cerulean, plum, and kohl.


Haider Akermann

“This show is always so beautifully dark and gothic with elements of punk, ’90s and CBGB references. The hair was meticulously stitched with thread and teased to mirror the clothes, which looked lovingly well-worn, like a mother’s expensive hand-me-down with a twist of her daughter’s punk rock look. The show was lead by Katsuya Kamo and the vibe was wabi-sabi and organic—each girl had their own customized look, which ranged from Sid Vicious pomps to mohawks. Tom Pecheux applied a ghostly sheen to all the cheekbones and eggshell shadow on the eyes which added an ethereal lightness to the collection.”
