Lace “Hair” Comes To The Head – 2016

Lace "Hair" Comes To The Head - 2016

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

A lovely lace look comes to the head, by Sharon Blain for the Intercoiffure Fall Atelier as part of her Twisted Aura Collection which wowed them at the Waldorf Astoria last weekend.  The collection presented on stage was inspired by Alexander McQueen after a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  “I was desperate to re-create the looks for hair,” Sharon Blain informed the audience at her knock-out show.   Lace is everywhere right now, so why not lace on the head. To construct this look, the model had a cap placed over her head covering her own hair, the swirls and hair for the laced look were added just like a beautiful hairstyle which included, later, some unusual hair texture being added at the back.  To see more of all this brilliance, click HERE
