Backstage with ghd at the London College of Fashion MA Show at LFW AW13
We're never so happy backstage at London Fashion Week as when we see a style that we can easily redo ourselves, and that's exactly what we got this morning at the London College of Fashion MA degree show.
ghd were backstage creating the look for the show, which Creative Director Kenna described as 'easy, effortless down'. Music to our ears. The hair had to be kept quite universal with 10 designers showing 10 different collections, so this loose, dishevelled style was perfect. Inspired by a model who turned up to the test with her hair tucked behind her ears, the look a is based around fuzzy, waved texture that falls into the face - very reminiscent of the Burberry girl.
To prep the hair, Kenna sprayed ghd's Root Lift Spray into the roots and then used a dressing brush and the ghd air hairdryer to drag the roots down, creating a heavy, flattened effect. A paddle brush and the ghd air were used to 'confuse' the parting so there was no distinct break, and then ghd stylers were used to create some movement at the front. Kenna bent them around the front section to create a curve in the mid-section that framed the face, in particular drawing attention to the top half where the make up was focused (pink cheeks and highlighted silver eyes - a very wintry look that I'm sure we'll all be wearing come November, if not just because of the cold).
Also great about this look? It's basically made for wearing a hat - probably the most practical autumn winter look of all time! We'll definitely be recreating this come AW/13 - will you?
