Style File: Spring Style
Long hair is long-gone, and it's peaches and cream when it comes to make-up. From your hair to your face, 7's Belkys Nerey gives us the short cuts to spring fashion in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- Off with the hair!!
No, we're not talking about going "Britney bald," but the long and short of it is that this spring it's all about "bobs."
Drako: "You can go longer, you can go shorter, you can have more texture."
Drako at Hair Dragon in the Design District is chopping and bobbing away.
He gave Sarah Reno a more texturized version.
Drako: "It has like a little bit of an Asian influence, but it has a little more of a 1920s, you know, millennium twist."
Sarah Reno: "It's perfect. You are the best."
And Joana Zamora went for chin-length.
Joana Zamora: "You know, it's spring, and it's just a nice way to start."
Both are totally "bob-ilicous" babes.
But, keep in mind, it's not a short cut for everyone.
Bobs work best on slender faces and straight hair is key.
Drako: "For the Asian bob, you really have to have very straight hair or willing to work a lot on your hair."
From hot hair to a fresh face, makeup artist Laura Mercier says nothing says spring like peaches and cream.
Laura Mercier: "Soft pastels, pinks and apricots and peaches. You can do that on the cheeks and on the lips."
To get that lip service, don't be afraid to mix and match colors.
Laura Mercier: "Mix the pinks and the oranges, so it gives an inbetween coraly, peachy color."
As for your cheeks, they should look like you're naturally blushing.
Laura Mercier: "I feel the best way to do it is to start at the apple of the cheek. You start right at the center, and you can't got wrong."
But your focus point this spring should be on the eyes.
Laura Mercier: "The colors on the eyes are in grays and greens."
The smokey look is "out" and defined is "in."
Mercier suggests lining the corner of your eye to give it a lift and then add a pop of color right above the lash line.
Laura Mercier: "The idea is to add a hint of color on your eye that is going to make the color of your pupil really sparkle."
Between this face and this haircut, you're ready to spring forward.
Long lashes are still in too -- Mercier says don't be afraid to lather on the mascara or get fake lashes.
