Video: The Cut Plays Hairstylist at Altuzarra

Professional hairstylists make it look easy, so you know you’re in trouble when someone like Paul Hanlon, a backstage mainstay, cops to creating a look that’s a “bit tricky.” Such was the case at Altuzarra’s spring show, where the hair, although simple in description (a low, knotlike bun), was seriously difficult to perfect. After what felt like hours of blow-drying, hair-spraying, and combing (repeat, repeat, repeat), we found out firsthand how painstaking backstage beauty can be. Watch as we trade the makeup brush for a comb.
