On Monday evening, FabSugar UK and I made our way backstage at before the highly anticipated William Tempest Fashion Show. Lan Nguyen was there heading up the makeup team on behalf of Benefit Cosmetics, and Tim Furssedonn was the head hairstylist in charge for Toni & Guy. Tim took a few moments out of his busy schedule to explain the inspiration behind the look for the show and how he created the slick style. He said,
"The look for this show was inspired by high fashion Paris couture. Hair has a high gloss and high finish. The boy (William Tempest) is about to go major, so the hair for the show is major. I've parted it deep on the side with structured waves on side and the other side is pulled taught and secured with gold barrettes for hold and ornamentation."
