A unique take on femininity, Audacious Beauty by Ali Holmes of Sydney’s Wild Life Hair uses a soft colour palette and the unifying theme of flowers to personify natural beauty at its most editorial. Set against a bright turquoise backdrop, each doll like model looks pensively away from the camera, sporting a diverse range of hair styles that range from trendy short cuts, modern interpretations of elegant Marie Antoinette-like styles, fancy up styles and long flowing curls to encapsulate the many different hair looks possible in a boldly feminine aesthetic.
The colour palette of the hair ranges from natural blondes to bright auburns and dual-toned dynamic brunettes. The fashion complements this with black tones, crisp whites and pops of colour from a chic blue stripes on a dress, a yellow bouquet of flowers or pops of red and green in the floral arrangements and fashion pieces, conveying the natural theme. Tulle skirts, soft feathered jackets and strong feminine silhouettes that flow out at the waist keep the look both stylish and beautiful.
“Every aspect of this shoot has been thought-out in order to create a feminine feel with an underlying masculine quality to it,” said Holmes. “The colour of the background, a light green with greyish undertones has feminine and masculine qualities and the flowers are all hard flowers creating a masculine countenance to a traditionally very feminine area.”
With an aesthetic that captures both natural beauty and a modern edge, Holmes puts her own inimitable spin on what it means to be feminine.
