Looking for wildly inventive New Year’s Eve hair inspiration? Maybe you’ll pick up a few ideas from Ginger Rubio Salon’s The Hunt fashion and hair event, held at DNA Lounge this fall. Channeling Little Red Riding Hood and Twilight, the model’s moody up-dos, “boho meets barbarian” men’s cuts, feathers, braids and exaggerated extensions were inspired by German forests, supple leather, utility, fantasy and history.
Nail foils are gaining traction as a quick, not to mention cheap, way to get a wildly patterned mani at home. Selections can be small at local drugstores, meaning you might end up with the same print as the chick next to you on Muni. To the rescue: limited edition non-metallic nail foil sets from Mariposa Allure in designs that range from graphic dots to Halloween-themed ghosts and ghouls.
