After VPL, I headed to Erin Fetherston with the Beauty.com team to check out the hair styling by Alterna and nails by Butter London.  There were four different styles for hair, 60s inspired with a sexy-without-spending-an-hour-on-it kind of hair. My favorite was the twisted chignon with a little oomph and volume using Alterna Bamboo products in Volume Uplifting Root Blast, Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse, and Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray. Butter London’s Nonie customized the nail color (dubbed “Patent Pink”) by mixing Pink Ribbon and Tea with the Queen together.

It’s really pretty crazy backstage – the set-up at Erin Fetherston was so small (smallest of all the shows I’ve been to so far).  It’s like organized chaos, I suppose, because everyone manages to get done what they need to get done in time for the show to go on.  I also want to thank everyone who recommended Cole Haan shoes, because though my feet hurt from all the walking at the end of the day, I don’t (yet) have blisters!  I’ve got a few more shows to recap, so stay tuned!
