25 Feb Backstage with Headmasters Pro Art Team at London Fashion Week
Get the latest from backstage at London Fashion Week AW15 with Headmasters Pro Artistic Team, including the hottest trends and must have hair for this season ranging from minimalist, paired back styling to edgy, dishevelled looks.
J. JS Lee AW15
The brief was the soft textured bob. The Art Team wig wrapped all the models using L’Oreal PLI then dried it to secure the shape. After placing the wig cap on, they attached the wigs and then cut in the fringe in so it was bespoke for the individual models. L’Oreal Clay was applied throughout the wig to rough up the hair a bit. The team loved this look because it was a super chic cut with a grungy edge to it. By adding a slight bevel gave the look a sophisticated, softer edge.
Topshop Unique AW15
The hair for this show was all about the undone, messy look basing it on the theme of a girl moving from up north in the Highlands of Scotland down to the big smoke. They wanted the hair to be very thick and windswept looking so L’Oreal PLI and Volume mousse was used when rough drying the hair. By adding texture this created movement that gave a lived in/savage feel to it.
Gareth Pugh AW15
This was a big show for Gareth Pugh with it being his return to London Fashion Week. His big return reflected the overall inspiration for his hair creating a wow factor. The brief was the old English nursery rhyme ‘all the kings horses and all the kings men’ representing strong independent women. The models either sported wigs that were cut into texturised crops that were finished with hairspray to separate pieces in the fringe. The other strong look was the crown height blunt end ponytail wrapped with leather to look like a warrior. The fringe was added and cut to match those of the crops, again finished with hair spray to separate pieces.
