THE SCOOP: A tribe of tough-but-cute young things descended upon the Cynthia Rowley show with a calling card of fringe-y eyelashes and brightly colored crimped ponytails. Each model got two sets of real-hair false eyelashes, which where painstakingly straightened with a straightening iron to undo the curl. "The lashes end up as a visor," said makeup artist Val Garland. "We're bringing lashes back in a modern way." She used black gel eyeliner to accentuate the lash line with an "elongated, tattoo effect."

Eva Scrivo used Wella hair color to custom color extensions that replicate the rich, artificial jewel tones of the collection, such as emerald, amethyst, lapis, bright turquoise, and navy. Prieto blended them into crimped ponytails that had "a lot of texture without frizz."

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Wella System Professional. Prep hair with Ultimation hair spray. Create texture within each section by using a combination of a curling iron and crimping iron for non-uniform waviness. Place colored and crimped hair pieces within sections of the natural hair. Pull the hair back into a soft ponytail at the nape of the neck and allow the streaks of color to show through for added dimension.
