Mary Queen of Scots Movie – 2018

Posted by on Nov 30, 2018 in Helen's Blog | 0 comments

Focus Feature Released by Universal Pictures

Thanks to Bryan Bantree, saw a Preview of the 16th Century historical drama movie, Mary Queen of Scots, last night starring Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth. The hair was inspirational in almost every scene, with red as the dominant hair color for both Queens. The Cousins, who never actually met, both wore jewels in their hair, which was mostly dressed or wigged in elaborate styles, from beginning to end, not all shown here. The Scottish men were groomed to look ungroomed , the most interesting being Mary’s half brother, James, played by Andrew Rothney. There were 29 hair and makeup artists for the stars and the crowd scenes listed in the credits, with Jenny Shircore listed as the Makeup Hair and Makeup Designer. The movie is worth seeing for the hair styles alone!

A Focus Feature released by Universal Pictures (International) the movie is directed by Josie Rourke, adapted by Beau Billmon from John Guy’s bio, Queen of Scots, The True Life of Mary Stuart and is scheduled to be released on December 7, 2018 in the US and January 18, 2019 in the UK.

In Action Again @ Intercoiffure - 2018

Photo: Ann Lawlor

Here I am back in action after a tough time this year. I am photographing WorldGreat Peter Gray for the Hairbrained Teach In backstage at Intercoiffure America/Canada last Sunday. What’s he up to? Well, for now, let’s say Peter Gray is deliciously insane, a hair maniac, when he isn’t doing editorials and ads for the tops the world over. Hope to have backstage photos of the two-day Atelier event archived soon on my website. Stay tuned …

Soft and Udone Hair @ NYFW - 2018

Soft and undone hair by Jorge Luis at the Stella Nolasco New York Fashion Week Fall 2018 show at Pier 59 Studios.  This gorgeous lace dress was one of the fashions by the Puerto Rican designer.   The hair was blow dried with fingers for a very soft and undone vibe, some strands bent around a 1 1/2″ barrel iron “bent not curled.”   Pieces of hair were organically grabbed, pinned up and placed in thin sections, then secured with bobby pins, some strands left out at the front to loosely frame the face.
