CHANGE IS IN THE HAIR

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

“Ken­dall is so cute as a blonde,” de­clared a dark brunette Gigi Ha­did back­stage at Bal­main, where a host of the in­dus­try’s most so­cial savvy mod­els wore wigs that were a stark con­trast to their nat­u­ral hair colours. Hair mae­stro Sam McKnight cre­ated the look, us­ing long Bal­main-branded wigs. “Olivier wanted to cre­ate a sur­prise to­day,” said McKnight. Tom Pecheux’s nat­u­ral make-up com­ple­mented the strik­ing look, which also graced tem­po­rary brunettes Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-White­ley and Lind­sey Wix­son, as well as golden-haired god­dess Alessan­dra Am­bro­sio. “It’s that Bal­main cool girl ... with a twist,” ex­plained McKnight. Else­where, other de­sign­ers and stylists ex­per­i­mented with con­trasts and vari­a­tions, and showed that change was the game at Au­tumn/Win­ter ’16 back­stages. At Givenchy, Guido Palau styled some mod­els’ hair loose and straight, while oth­ers wore shorter hair “caps” by Josh Wood over their nat­u­ral locks. At Is­abel Marant, Palau also pur­sued some­thing dis­tinc­tive, but with three dif­fer­ent looks that off­set one an­other: ’80s curls, side-swept and slicked fringes, as well as wild up-dos. It be­came more ex­treme at Rick Owens, where hair by Duffy was in even starker con­trast. Some mod­els wore theirs lank, oth­ers with di­aphanous styles, and 14 girls had their heads en­cased in spher­i­cal hair domes. “If you look at them, you no­tice they’re all dif­fer­ent shapes: some ob­long, some oval,” Duffy ex­plained.
