A retro-inspired beach photo shoot showed off the very best of both Showpony Hair Extensions and Gold Coast swimwear brand Molly & Polly. Vibrant swimsuits, pastel surfboards and beach locks perfectly tousled captured the ‘Miami to Mexico’ brief to a tee.
“We really wanted to capture the colour of these locations, and the excitement of being beachside – from bright pinks, blues and pastel props and accessories, to the gorgeous beachy hair, bright lips and bronzed bodies,” said Molly & Polly’s Kirsten Becker. “Showpony was an obvious choice to partner with; they are a fresh and modern product with great styling and branding, not to mention a world leader in high quality hair extensions. We didn’t want to compromise on quality in any area for our campaign shoot.”
The hair brief called for a vintage, voluminous aesthetic. Hair Direction was led by Showpony Sales and Education Manager for Queensland, Cassie Kelly, who used Showpony’s micro bead system and wefts for seamless length and colour.
“As the Hair Stylist for the shoot, we used our versatile human hair 1 metre and 1.2 metre weft hair extensions, together with our 5mm silicon micro beads for a beautifully natural look,” she said. “To achieve the enviable, tousled beachy waves, I used the H2Dx5 large wand heat styler, tonging in vertical sections and spritzing with a dry texture spray and shine spray to hold the wave.”
Evoking the vibe of summer in the sixties, the Miami to Mexico shoot is a fine demonstration of two rising Gold Coast brands. With voluminous beach hair and printed cozzie in tow, these are the quintessential summer shots.
