“Strange and Cute” is the main concept of the  Pays des fées brand who showed their Spring/Summer 2024 Collection on the Rakuten Fashion Week Tokyo runway, Day 2.

Chiaki Hino created some fun hair, dressed and decorated up to there, for Lim Asafuji, the Designer and Creative Director for the  Pays des fées line of Women’s and Men’s Ready To Wear, Shoes, Accessories and more. She likes to “express deep themes each season” – yes, we like that.

Anna Pacitto Fun Hair IntercoiffureAC - 2022

Anna Pacitto wowed with fun hair onstage at the IntercoiffureAC 2022 Fall Atelier. The Collection was called Quantum Love.  She told her audience she was thinking outside the box, “out of the box all the way.” And she didn’t disappoint as she inspired with hair we don’t usually see all over Instagram or onstage at hair events in Amerca!    One idea after another from cuts (cutting short hair to longer) to extensions (including long rasta looks and pieces encased in epoxy)  – the kind of hair she and her staff must have burned the midnight oil to produce for this knock-out show of pure creativity. Take this short look with furls of resin and hair undulating down both sides of the face, and body, which she worked on with Stéphane Scotto Di Cesare, artist extradordinaire, and headpiece/wig creator, whose past includes hair for Cirque du Soleil Events.

Anna is the Artist Director of Davines US, Artistic Director for  Intercoiffure America Canada, co-owner of Salon Pure in Montreal. Stay tuned for more Anna to come, archived in an album on this website (ThisThat/ShowTime) and check my Instagram for videos and more (@HelenOppenheim)
