This Week in High Fashion: I Heart Hair!!!

This Week in High Fashion: I Heart Hair!!!

Today at 9:31am

Now I have to be honest with you all... those of you who know me, know that I hate my own hair...can't effing stand it... that's why I don't have very much... On a regular basis, I get annoyed and I cut it all off.

Prior to being a Makeup Artist... I didn't have much to do with hair... sure I cut off a few ponytails in my highschool years... and braided endless lengths of yarn and pigtails in Girl Guides...but since "taking up the brush" I've discovered that I ADORE styling hair. And I'm serious about that ADORE bit.

Hair just makes a look... makeup is important, of course... but with the current runway trend being that icky boring bare face... hair has to be spectacular or the beauty industry is doomed.


Today, I give you my tribute to Runway Hair...


FIRST up! Vivienne Westwood...

Vivienne never lets me down, craaaaazy hair and craaaaazy makeup!!! I don't know about you darlings, but when I look at these photos, I think of a subtle marriage between Queen Elizabeth I with her lead based makeup covered "virginal" face and a light socket.

Its regal, and shocking...all at the same time.

And I seriouly respect Vivienne for suffering the same hairstyle as her models. That is true dedication to your art form. The day I see Karl Lagerfeld in anything but dark glasses and Don Cherry collars, I will die of shock.

Go VW!

She's like a Tim Burton doll on electoshock treatments... what's not to love?

Anyone who's been in my chair knows that I have a penchant for vintage hair... I have a thing for roller sets. OK not just a thing... it's an obsession. I don't know if I'm preparing for a career doing old lady wash n' sets or what...but I just can't seem to stop. Thankfully, it's still happening on the Runways of London... so I don't feel too too bad about it. I almost feel... justified. :D

OK, so Paul Costellow goes a little far here... I generally take the curlers OFF the model before sending them on their way... but its neither here nor there.

Crimping... I personally grew out of crimping in 1992...but some people just can't let go.
OH and there is actually some EYE MAKEUP in this photo too!!!
I really hate the fact that I get all squiffy over a little eyeliner on the runways these days... that is so sad.

Personally, I love colour... fun coloured hair is the shit, boys and girls. If I didn't work a stifling day job, my hair would be much more entertaining.
I threw this in here because:

a) I love Anna Sui...she's adorable... like a rose-perfumed Lolita with a knife adorable
b) Blue hair is FUN
c) The model is wearing eye makeup... small victories, people... small victories.

Rolls and curls...
I actually really really like the photo below...
Hairnets are so touch and go... their either super classy (like on a Hunter Jumper competitor) or super grody (like on Mavis the lunch lady in highschool). I'm going with classy on this one...
But it's a slippery slope.

Boy Hair

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn... your curls are looking a little... um... prett-ay?
G-Star is supposed to be an egdy urban clothing line... so I'm confused... unsettled and confused by the Victorian curls... ok lets be honest, it takes a real man to rock curls like that... PLUS a perv moustache... ok let's be burtal about it... it takes a much stronger woman than I to sit back and appreciate those curls and stache without laughing my ass off.
I'm sorry G-Star, I won't be purchasing your wares because of your hot curly-top models.

NOT HOT ALERT! G-Star Spring 2010 show during New York Fashion Week September 15, 2009. and for shame hairstylist! BAD tattoos!
