Second in the “flowered up” series came Katerina, Ioanna’s older sister. Slicking back your hair with a side parting (whether you pull it in a ponytail or a chignon) is a definite classic but when Beyonce, Christina Ricci and Gisele Bundchen show up at the same event with the same hairstyle (from the front), you know its moment is now (Beyonce went for the low ponytail and the other two for super elegant chignons). I love the simplicity of this hairstyle and the way it brings out a woman’s features. Since we were doing exotic with Marina Stat (who did the make-up), I decided to use gel and give Katerina a wet and shiny look. I love the way this looks from all angles. You can see a tiny bit of the flower extravaganza when you look at it from the front but when she turns her head or you see her from the back, it’s all exposed and fabulous. I’ll say it again: more is more when you opt for flowers.
