Fashion Week is known for the clothes, but there’s also inspirational hair and makeup to be seen everywhere.
This is the first time I’ve been backstage. It’s really impressive to see all the work that goes into making a show. There’s a lot of people running around, photographers, hair everywhere, models going from one station to another. There’s a lot of very frenetic activity and in small spaces, it can be overwhelming.
I also had a chance to go backstage at Gemma K for hair and makeup. According to the stylist, the hair was inspired by the Amish. The models’ hair was pinned to a low ponytail or chignon, and long braided hair extensions were secured to the back. The braids formed an oval, organic shape and are secured by hairpins.
This would be a great way to do vintage hair over the Spring or Summer as well, or during days when you’d didn’t have time to set your hair.
