BACKSTAGE| Rohmir SS15
Rohmir, label of luxury and glamour, turned to our neighbour Scotland for inspiration this season, using blue and white metallic shades and Celtic knot hairstyles to finish off her upcoming collection.
Richard Mannah of Toni&Guy talked us through the hair look for Rohmir SS15, which nodded towards a Scottish Celtic knot. Inspired by movies like Brave and Braveheart, Mannah wanted to create something very simple, incorporating the Celtic knot through the back of the hair. Dry shampoo and Label.m Volume Mousse gave hair a drier natural texture, to ensure wasn’t too polished, perfect and ‘weddingy’. Mannah praises the mouldable quality of hair, giving hairstylists the chance to shape it without it being too slippery and clean.
Olga Roh, who founded the label in 2007, worked with Toni&Guy to come up with the look, as Mannah explains; ‘she had an idea of the knot, so I played around with different ideas like where we would put the knot. We’re going to try and use all the models’ own hair, and keep things simple. We don’t want it to be too busy, because the knot speaks for itself and that’s the focal point of the whole look’.
Finished with hair and shine spray, the look was kept imperfect to keep the style young and modern, not bridal. Matched with the metallic blue and white make-up look, complete with satin rather than the dewy skin of previous seasons, it perfectly represented the rustic tranquillity of Roh’s recently purchased Scottish castle getaway.
