Get The Runway Look: Versace's 'Up and Young' Hair and Makeup

Versace brought the fierce and turned up the glam for their recent couture show in Paris on Sunday. After one of fashion's most notorious "It" girls, Naomi Campbell strutted in a charcoal cutout bodysuit, the runway was on fire!

Models brought heat in the form of sheer-to-extravagant frocks with the eye-catching simplicity of a topknot on their heads. The "mane move" was an attempt to create an up and young look. As spelled out in detail in WWD, hair stylist Guido Palau put together the high buns to flaunt the models' gorgeously elongated necks. But how can we dazzle with such a 'do?

Luckily we can all rip this runway look in no time flat. Palau used Redken Thickening Lotion 06 on rough-dried tresses, then tied them with elastic and twisted hair around with sticking-out strands. And for the grande finale, he spritzed on Redken Forceful 23. The look is part punk rock, part rock 'n' roll. Gorg!

Donnatella Versace also enlisted the fabulous creative mind of makeup artist, Pat McGrath, to create dramatic facial flair. The famed designer showed an iconic "Tears" photo of Man Ray from the 1930s to McGrath as an example of how the models' blackened eyelashes should be well-defined and stand out with mascara.

"She was saying it's all about a fresh version of that," McGrath said. "Donnatella was obsessed with top and botton lashes." The leggy, catwalk-savvy stunners had attention-grabbing eyes with well-groomed eyebrows. But otherwise, toned down the rest of their faces with natural skin and dabbed-on lip balm.

The low-maintenance look was pretty stunning.
