Assisting Hair Designer At Bora Aksu LFW 2013

kms california

Last month I was extremely happy again to assist Hair stylist Chrysostomos Chamalidis for LFW 2013.

Chrysostomos was the Key Hair Designer for Bora Aksu AW13 show that took place in the Courtyard Space at Somerset House in front of a celebrity filled crowd including Kate Nash & Laura Whitmore.

The show was sponsored by hair brand KMS and with Chrysostomos own personal team we worked together with members of the KMS UK Education Team to create the amazing hairstyle on the model’s backstage.

Bora Aksu AW13 collection was inspired by Roszika (Rosie) and Janszieka (Jenny) the Dolly Sisters who were Hungarian identical twins that moved to New York City where they danced in unison and proceeded to tour Europe to sell out shows

The sisters were the ultimate icons of the roaring twenties, known not only for their dance acts but their elaborate costumes and ornate headpieces.

The main objective for the hair was to achieve an extremely high shine look and for this we used KMS products HAIRSTAY anti-humidity seal, HAIRSTAY styling gel SILKSHEEN polishing serum and adding some colour throughout the plaits we used Kryolan Blue hair spray paint.

The beautiful makeup for the show was designed by Key Makeup Artist Maria Papadopoulou using Ellis Faas and the stunning collection of headpieces were made by knitwear designer Liria Pristine.
