THE SCOOP: For his Fall 2010 collection, American designer Cesar Galindo went rock and roll with Joan Jett as his muse. And the hair and makeup team rounded it out with looks that were just as edgy.

Lead hair stylist Holli Smith didn't want all of the models' strands to read like that of the iconic rocker, so she perfected two different hairstyles -- a raven mullet and fringe bangs and ponytail. "Knowing Cesar's inspiration it was pretty obvious what we were going to do, but we didn't want it to be too obvious," said Smith. "But both styles are pretty messy and full of dry texture."

Ashunta Sheriff told StyleList that she has the famous Joan Jett beauty look imprinted in her mind. "I remember being an 8-year-old girl and seeing that smoky, intense eye, the lip that was there but not there, and that streaky blush," said Sheriff. "But I wanted to modernize it and bring it to 2010 with a pop of color."
