The show: Giles
The lead stylist: Paul Hanlon for Toni&Guy
The hair: Inspiration came during the hair and make-up test at Giles’ studio, when model Kristen McMenamy showed up with her hair in its natural, waist-skimming condition. McMenamy had washed her hair, braided it and left it to dry, resulting in a natural texture. Paul rolled out the look on the model cast, wanting the girls to look as though they belonged to a cult and hadn’t cut their hair for years.
Recreate: Add two to three thin layers of hair wefts for length rather than bulk. Dampen the hair with label.m Relaxing Balm and Leave In Conditioner. Braid the hair loosely at the top and tighter as it moves on down the end. Dry the hair and use straightening irons along the length of the plait to set. Spritz with label.m Hairspray. Remove the braids and let the hair fall naturally.
Product essentials: label.m Relaxing Balm, Leave In Conditioner, Hairspray, Advanced Pro Session Straightener and Turbo Dryer.
The buzz: Giles’ show featured a roll call of exceptional models, including Kristen, Georgia Jagger, Edie Campbell, Eliza Cummings, Cara Delevingne, Irina Kravchenko, and Hanne Gaby Odiele.
