BACKSTAGE| Toni & Guy lead hair stylist Chie Sato talks to VFS

Ahead of Myrza de Muynck’s Spring/Summer 2013 show, Vauxhall Fashion Scout head edbackstage and to chat with lead hair stylist at Toni & Guy Chie Sato about the looks the team are creating for the show. Chie tells us about the inspiration behind the hair, tips the top hair trends for S/S13 and lets us in on some key products to getting that perfect textured look. 

What look are you creating today?
The inspiration for the design is “This is England”, it’s kind of undone and we’re creating an undercut look. I wouldn’t say it’s a natural look, but it’s less neat more DIY.

How do you create a balance between the pieces in the collection and the looks for hair?
I think about the collection first. We meet with the designer and make-up artists and talk about the clothes and the colours. The first thing the designer showed me was an image from “This is England” to start off.

Are there any key products you’re using today?
Sea Salt spray for a sultry look, and we’ve been using Label M Miracle fibre too. This season the hair has a healthier look.

It’s the last day at VFS, are there any looks you’ve seen?
There have been so many shows! We’ve seen a softer look for the hair, not messy but like you’ve been on holiday and you let the environment take course. A lot of women like their hair on holiday and find it hard to recreate that texture.
