New York Fashion Week is over, but the stories of the hair, makeup, and fashion will  live on forever. Over the next few weeks I plan to bring you delicious beauty how-to’s  straight from the runway along with showing off some of my favorite collections. This designer takes edgy to the extreme, but in a good way of course. From Jill Stuart to Twinkle, Kao was ready to venture onto her own, and set up her namesake shop in 2006.

Next up: Designer Collection Jen Kao’s

Inspiration: Worldly Athleticism for Spring 2013. The clothing this season featured linear lines with strong asymmetry.  It seems high necklines and hats were part of the collection, so the hair had to work with those elements.  Here are some tips from my favorite lead stylist Anthony Turner for Cutler/Redken Salon in NYC
