the coolest girl in new york

Cancel your blowout immediately. The cool girl hair at Rag & Bone was all about texture. Unkept, unpretentious, and a bit of a mess... it's what I call, "Day 3 hair". Ahh, the perfect hair moment, 3 days après shampoo when you are finally channeling an Olsen. I went backstage Paul Hanlon taught me how to achieve the look any day:

1. Generously cover hair with Osis + Grip Mousse and rough dry to give a powdery texture.

2. Separate hair into sections and apply OSiS + Mess Up matt gum at roots to make them "dirty", creating separation and strong definition.

3. Apply OSiS + Dust It to the entire head. Then twist large sections and back comb to create a dreadlock look.

4. Blow loose locks back to give the style shape and lock the look with Osis + Freeze hairspray.

And her face...

Androgynous yet pretty. The makeup was accessible and cool... so cool. Leave it to skin obsessed Gucci Westman to conceal red in the lip using Revlon illuminance Cream Shadow in "Not Just Nudes", to create a perfectly fresh, flesh canvas, which made the eyes pop! The eye, which was slightly punk was created by a strong geometric shape. The line “goes straight out, and doesn’t follow the lash line" which allows for a toughness. “The eyeliner is meant to be your one trick,” Westman said. “This is not a high-maintenance girl.”

Low-maintenance she may appear, but technically our cool girl needed 3 different eyeliners to create the look. Whatever... I'm fine with buying all three considering I won't be needing a blow out until Spring 2015. xxb
