Anya Hindmarch LFW SS17
We were proud sponsors of Anya Hindmarch's London Fashion Week SS17 show and our hair team was led by the one and only Sam Mcknight!
The hair look was inspired by facelifts and bandages – with a statement neoprene headpiece c/o Stephen Jones. A high-shine finish provided a stark contrast to the matte pieces running throughout Anya’s SS17 collection.
‘It’s very futuristic, super-shiny hair that contrasts with the matte clothes,’ says Sam McKnight. ‘The bandage makes the hair look theatrical and surreal – it transforms the models into a bit of an Anya army.’
Using Cloud Nine tools, hair was crafted into a seriously sleek ‘facelift’ pony, topped off with bandage headpiece.
Sections of freshly-washed hair were misted with hairspray before straightening with The Original Iron for a super-sleek finish. The Micro Iron was also used to straighten afro hair and shorter, curly hair around the neck and hairline.
Working with a middle parting, a one-inch section of hair was smoothed from the top of the head into a pony to avoid bumps showing through the neoprene bandage.
Hair was smoothed into a super-clean low ponytail and secured with elastic cord at the nape of the neck. Extensions were used on models with shorter hair to create extra length.
The figure-of-eight Stephen Jones bandage headpiece provided the final runway hair statement. Sam recommends using a scarf or headband to recreate the look at home.
In the line-up, The Original Iron was smoothed through the ponytail length and ends to tame last-minute flyaways.
