This is what 'sex on a motorcycle' hair looks like! Well, it does to Jean-Pierre Braganza. For his SS15 show, 'Architectonic', he asked the Toni & Guy session team to create 'dishevelled, very beautiful, soft, flowing, long hair' to complement the strong look of the clothes. Some of the designs reminded me of drapey origami, while others incorporated motorbike engines in print. The makeup was created by M.A.C. with artfully lined eyelids in a shape that looked like a bird's wing when closed. The clothes, hair and makeup combined to create one the most beautifully complete runway looks I've seen. Edgy yet very wearable in the real world.
If you want the 'Ethereal hippy girl meets biker culture' look and there is no motorcycle to be found, here's the technique:
- Create a deep side parting, prep the hair with label.m Blow Out Spray and blast dry.
- Take label.m Curling Tongs 28mm through the ends of the hair to create slight movement but not a curl
- Tuck hair behind ears with the top of ear peeking out for a fashion edge
- Sweep hair to the opposite side of the head over the forehead, finish off with label.m Hairspray
You can watch the video to see how it's done by the Toni & Guy team, lead by Global Creative Director, Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck:
