Giles & The Gang

The backstage was buzzing for the Giles AW14 catwalk, Kendell Jenner, Jordan Dunn, and Cara Delevingne were all walking for the acclaimed designer. I went backstage to capture the hair look by Toni and Guy, and got more than I bargained for as I got to see first hand the special Giles collaboration with Wool and the Gang. Cara and co, were snapped getting in on the knitting action.

The look for the show was helmet hair, there was an overall techno theme for AW14 with the orange and the blue within the collection. The hair inspiration came from the black leather pieces; imagine the girls going on motorbikes, and what their hair looked like after the helmet was removed. Label M sea salt spray creates the desired texture,  Hair is blasted forward and then worked  through loosely with straightening irons, which built the necessary tension for a finished look which is not too messy. Hair nets are placed right over the top really tight, to flatten the crown. Lots of Label M hairspray is applied, then bloodied, then more hair spray to set. Take off the hair nets, for a Giles AW14 Helmet hair.
