The prestigious runway show, attended by A-List celebrities and fashion's elite, was enhanced by the enviable hairstyles, marking new trends for the AW14 season.

Working on behalf of TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ and with Marchesa has been amazing. I'm proud of the hair we created for this show and honored to be working with such incredible designers," said Mark Hampton, Global Ambassador for TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™.
