The late night chignon at Versus Versace
Eugene Souleiman served up a ‘ tough-edged solution to up-all-night beauty’ At Versus Versace. None of the models had the same style, instead Souleiman took an individual approach to each model . “The aim was to enhance the girl’s natural texture, but also to break it up at the same time”, Souleiman remarked. The girls hairstyles were a mysterious cross between a sexy style worn for a night out and a style often donned the morning after said night out, during the dreaded walk of shame.
The all-American at Tommy Hilfiger
Held at the Roundhouse venue in Camden on the last day of LFW, the Tommy Hilfiger show was nothing short of a super production. Not surprisingly Gigi Hadid was at the centre of it all, closely followed by her sister Bella. The collection was punky and glam, so naturally the hair was a reflection. Eugene Souleiman opted for textured, soft loose waves to create Hilfigers signiture all-American girl style, but with a bit of an edge.
Elegant individuality at Roland Mouret
Sam McKnight was the mastermind behind the hair at Roland Mouret. He created a lived-in texture on some of the models, and braided styles on those with thicker hair. All looks had a very natural and feminine feel to compliment the flowing, asymmetric dresses and skirts. "individuality is key – I don't want any army of girls, I want something modern." remarked Sam McKnight backstage.
The lazy wave at Topshop
The Topshop runway was a metallic and pewter dream, from the coats right down to the boots Grungy, distressed waves were the style of choice to contrast the shiny, red, yellow and silver fabrics. “Think London clubs in the ’90s – The Wag club, The Mud club, Ronnie Scotts, Madame JoJos – and those late night girls who were out clubbing every night. They were very much pioneers in that time – these strong, individual characters partying with loads of confidence.” Remarked stylist behind the look, Duffy.
