The Show & Hair Style
Celebrating 10 years at London Fashion Week this year, Designer Bora Aksu looked to his Turkish roots for inspiration for his S/S 14 collection “Nazar”.
Chrysostomos Chamalidis explained the hair inspiration:
“The style I created was evocative of a beautiful rural Turkish peasant girl who has been outside in fields all day. Her look is youthful and fresh with a windswept, but not frizzy, hair texture to perfectly complement Bora’s collection.”
To achieve the perfect wispy texture the hair was carefully prepped with KMS ADDVOLUME root & body lift, KMS ADDVOLUME volumising spray and KMS HAIRPLAY makeover spray, and finished with KMS HAIRPLAY playable texture and KMS TAMEFRIZZ taming creme.
