Model Ses­silee Lopez rocks weaves and wigs

At 27, model Ses­silee Lopez is a global style star. And hav­ing walked for the likes of Marc Ja­cobs, Givenchy and Ar­mani and mod­elled for US, Ital­ian, French and Ja­panese Vogue among oth­ers, she’s been able to learn from the best stylists in the busi­ness.

“My own weave takes com­mit­ment and in­vest­ment, start­ing with pro­fes­sional ap­pli­ca­tion that can’t be rushed,” Ses­silee ex­plains. “I sleep in a silk head­scarf at night and then in the morn­ing, I touch up the style with a flat­iron on a low set­ting and ap­ply a lit­tle wax to the baby hairs on my hair­line. When you have a long weave like mine, you’re mar­ried to the look!”

But what about the days when she feels less com­mit­ted? Well, that’s where wigs come into the pic­ture, re­veals Kiyo Igarashi, the hair­styl­ist who cre­ated the looks here. “Wigs are a great ac­ces­sory be­cause they can trans­form you in­stantly,” ex­plains Kiyo. “And if you want, you can re­fash­ion your hair on a daily ba­sis.”

Thomas Tshe­ola, the tech­ni­cal cen­tre man­ager at Dar­ling and Frika, adds that wigs are also great for adding length or chang­ing tex­ture. “And a good qual­ity one lasts for years,” he says. “Of course, they are also the per­fect so­lu­tion for women who are suf­fer­ing from hair loss.”
