Goldwell and Nicholas Oakwell showcase 70’s Decadence.
On Tuesday 26th June, British couturier Nicholas Oakwell once again invited Goldwell to create the hair alongside renowned session artist James Rowe, for his much anticipated Autumn/Winter couture show in Mayfair.
The show took place in the breathtakingly beautiful Claridges hotel, with an array of stunning models dressed in sumptuous 70’s inspired couture tweed suits and gowns dripping with diamonds and sequins.
The models sashayed around leather couches and a grand piano, stopping every so often to take a seat and pose for the audience.
A host of fashion’s elite attended the show including fashion journalist Hilary Alexander and actress Olivia Grant.
The inspiration for the show came from the extravagant glamour of the 1970’s, with fabrics including fur, tweed, chiffon and tulle, embellished with beads, metallics and sequins.
With a collection this gorgeous, it was imperative the hair complemented the outfits.
Two talented stylists were invited by Goldwell to work backstage at this unique show.
Tana Bennett and Samie Merlino from Tana B Hair Company in South Croydon spent 6 hours working with head stylist James Rowe, creating the stunning 70’s inspired sleek vintage backward roll.
The stylists also teased out loose pieces at the front to frame the face and add softness to each model’s look.
