I spoke to head of make up Zoe Taylor to discuss the concept for the look. “The brief,” she explained, “was like a broken down Lolita where we had to bridge the gap between really innocent and quite aggressive”. The glitters came in to play to bind the two extremes together; adding an ethereal level and mimicking the colour palette in the garments.
Indira Schauwecker, head of hair styling with her team from Toni & Guy talked me through the look. Hair was backcombed to the roots, multicoloured extensions were inconspicuously inset using a multitude of metallic hair slides, set side by side to keep the birds-nest-esque bouffants in place. “A lot of hairspray and volume mousse” - Schauwecker on the label.m products used during the show.
