“Structure and softness” was the brief for models whose hair was tended to by Jacqueline Pidd for TIGI at the Anna Quan interactive show. Held off-site at Carol Lehrer Crawford’s sculpture studio in Surry Hills for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, guests were invited to walk through the studio observing the collection much like an art show, allowing them to get up close and personal with the clothes – and the hair.
Jacqueline explained the hair was influenced by the marcel waves popular in the 1930s. “We went for a 1930s inspired look but with a modern twist,” she said. “At the front we’ve got a structured marcel wave, and at the back we’ve got a softer wave or with shorter hair, a bend in the middle.”
Jacqueline said it was all about “creating structure and softness” to complement the ethereal yet, yet classic and tailored collection.
To achieve the look Jacqueline started with Bed Head Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray, and used a small tong around the front of the face to create the waves. She finished off the models’ looks TIGI Copyright products, including the Copyright Custom Create Volume Lift Styling Spray and the TIGI Copyright Custom Complete Maximum Hold Hairspray.
Michelle Crofts for Harlotte Cosmetics completed the makeup on the models, opting for natural, dewy ski, a hint of a smokey eye and a nude lip.
