Beauty Trend: High-Impact Hair and Make-Up

It’s clear from the Fall 2010 Haute Couture season that saturated colors and strong-hold hair products are the name of the game.

Bumble & Bumble’s Gellac is a godsend for elaborate hair looks that call for zero movement, as seen in the sculpted tulip-inspired creations on the Christian Dior Couture runway.

Chanel can always be counted on for saturated nail lacquers. Tom Ford delivers with his lip color collections, ranging from the dark Black Orchid to the pale Vanilla Suede.

Givenchy, Hourglass, and Yves Saint Laurent offer a range of high-impact colors for us to mix, match, and play with, many in conveniently packaged, ready-to-go compacts.
